Brain Game: Seventy-Six Inches
I recently heard the song "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean, and sang along with the lyrics that described John as "six-foot-six" and weighing "245." It prompted me to think about other songs that mention the specific heights of people, like The Hollies' "Long Cool Woman," who is said to be "five-nine, beautiful, tall."
When I got to one particular height measurement, I was able to (fairly quickly) pick out three hit songs whose lyrics matched up. See if you can name those three (or any others) that match:
Here areÂ three ANSWERS.
"Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" by Jim Croce ("You see he stands about six-foot-four...")
"Down Under" by Men at Work ("He was six-foot-four and full of muscles...")
"Cherry Pie" by Warrant ("In walks her daddy standin' six-foot-four..."
Did you find another song that mentions "six-foot-four" in its lyrics? Please post it in the comments. Thanks!
