That's a good one, stuff that people can get but isn't a total gimme is perfect. It's for a pub quiz at the bar my mom works at. It's 20 questions everyone puts in 5 bucks and the winner gets the doe. I won last week so I have to make up the questions this week.

Which actor/actress who plays a psychiatrist from Sopranos earned a Special Thanks credit in Kill Bill volume 1?

 

This is probably impossible, unless you are a huge fan of Both Kill Bill and the Sopranos. :lol:

Not certain (from memory, may be skipping an album) but I would guess Meddle.

 

The Wall doesn't have many electronic tunes within the album, but that came out in the early 80's......

Its easy to baseball fans but a great ironic answer.  Who has the most career loses?

Cy Young - that is a good one.

 

A long career and no 5 man rotation back in the day can do that to you.

It would be better to ask who has the most wins, then as the next question who has the most losses...that would confuse many people.

Meddle came out in 1971 I think, so it would have predated punk.

 

The wall came out in late 1979 so it would have been during the 2nd wave of Brit Punk.

 

I think the answer is probably "Animals," because it is closest to Johnny Rotten's "I hate Pink Floyd" quotes and t-shirts. There is a lot less synth on this compared to the previous album (Wish You Were Here), although still more than on The Wall. That is probably actually more related to the fact that Rick Wright was really not feeling very creative or into the sessions at the time - he was going through a divorce and was tired of the megalomaniac bulls*** from the ever more controlling Roger Waters.

 

Animals was definately the beginning of the end of PF performing as a cohesive unit.
