Shall We Play A Game

Shall We Play A Game
Been thinking about this off and on for a while now - after too much sad news this weekend, I figured, why not.

The game is SONG WORD.
Think of a song with an obscure or not often used word in it, that has at least had air time (to make it reasonably fair for everyone).
Old, new, somewhere in between. Rock, country, soul - your choice, but use your best judgement as to its difficulty.

Rules:

Google & we will catch you... then send magazine sales people to your address. We will be watching. Dodgy

If after numerous attempts - no one can ID the song that the word is in, we may ask for one clue... and one clue only.

A stump is declared if no one correctly IDs the song after say... what... ten players attempts?

The winning IDr makes the next round choice.

I'll kick it off with an easy one... and a not-so-easy one.
Getsetreadygoooooooooo!

WORD 1: MICROCOSMIC (I expect this IDd within the hour)
WORD 2: TONTON MACOUTE

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

RE: Shall We Play A Game
Word 1's got to be 'Natural Science', right? (MICROCOSMIC planet, a complete society...)
Word 2, not a clue!
Good idea though Mufster! Although with the thread title, I thought you were tricking us into a War Games, nuclear warfare, type gig!

"How about - Global Thermonuclear War?"

Too easy on #1.
# 2... let's see how it plays out - then I will toss out a clue.

LOVE IT!!! Can you spell "macoute" phonetically please?

Oh and here Muffy I thought we'd play Global Thermonuclear War. ( I think I'd do better at that game )
