Pop Quiz Answers

  1. “Moving in Stereo” – The Cars (Fast Times at Ridgemont High)

There was a hilarious, gender-reversed take on this scene in Stranger Things 3 episode “Suzie, Do You Copy?”

2. “Tiny Dancer” – Elton John (Almost Famous)

If there’s ever been a more beautiful love letter to how music can bring us together, I’m not aware of it.

3. “Shambala” – Three Dog Night (Lost 3:10 – “Tricia Tanaka Is Dead”)

“Greatest 5 minutes in tv history”? No, but it is pretty awesome.

5. “Stuck in the Middle with You” – Stealers Wheel (Reservoir Dogs)

WARNING: This clip is graphically violent.

“Evian is naive spelled backwards” will never not be funny.

“You met me at a very strange time in my life” might be my favorite last line in any movie. And Helena Bonham Carter is perfection.

I’ll never get over Bradley Whitford being the asshole boyfriend in this 80s classic.

9. “Crystal Blue Persuasion” – Tommy James and the Shondells (Breaking Bad 5:8 – “Gliding All Over”)

I couldn’t imagine a better song to set this montage to.

  1. Two things. 1) At least I wasn’t totally crazy when I guessed “The Twist”! 2) I now know how incomplete my life will be until I see 500 Days of Summer.
