Quiz Time 6 - connections

Quiz Time 6

Yr Host - Aaman Lamba

Quizzing normally has two types of rounds - the dry rounds, which
unfortunately have little to do with spirits being imbibed or not, and the
audio/visual rounds. Some of the most interesting questions are
audio/visual connections - often these can be audio-audio or
audio-visual-visual, etc.

In this spirit, this quiz has a few of these types. I've also
fixed the bug from the last quiz that caused a new window when the
audio links were clicked.

Note: The answers have been inserted - how did you do?

10. mpg4 Connect this famous song in the clip and the following verse:

Twelve o'clock.

Along the reaches of the street

Held in a lunar synthesis,

Whispering lunar incantations

Dissolve the floors of memory

And all its clear relations,

Its divisions and precisions,

Every street lamp that I pass

Beats like a fatalistic drum,

And through the spaces of the dark

Midnight shakes the memory

As a madman shakes a dead geranium.
