Name that tune!

Found this over at Don't Forget to Flush, who stole it from Moomin Light.
This is an interesting little meme. Here are the instructions:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the 1st 25 songs no matter how embarrassing
Step 3: Strike through once someone guesses both the artist and the track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing, looking up the lyrics is CHEATING.
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.

And awaaaaaayyyyyyyyy we go!!

Hmm, interesting. I'm gonna steal this. :)

I can't think of any of them right off, thoug a few sound familiar. I'll be back to read them again, though. :)

Okay, #4 is "Can't Get You Out Of My head" by Kylie Manoge (or however you spell her name)
#9 is called "One Toke Over The Line", but I don't know who sings it...
The others I had to Google, so I won't post them. :)

CDB said...

I love this game!! But seriously, how long does it take to listen to 25 first lines?!

#5 is "Tell Me Lies" - Fleetwood Mac
#12 is Paul Simon? Think?
#20 Honky Tonk Girl - Rolling Stones and I NEVER knew he said "gin-soaked." Clever, Mick.

4. Kylie Minogue - Can't Get You Out of My Head
10. Les Miz - JAVERT'S SUICIDE!! (oh my god! You like Les Miz as well? Hero! lol)

Only 2. Goodness. My music exposure is lacking. You wanna recommend me some good bands or artists to listen to? :)

Steph Su said...

Same here!! Les Miz was my first Broadway show but it is and forever will be my favorite. I basically know the lyrics to every song, which is why I literally jumped when I knew the answer to 10! :)

Are you as much of a Broadway geek as I am? What other shows have you able to see??

Ahhh I love finding people with similar interests!

So fun!
#1 "Nasty" by Janet Jackson
I used to watch the video over and over to learn the dance!
Some others sound so familiar. I can't wait to find out what they are!

#3 "There go the street lights, the night's officially on, I got the green light to do whatever I want."

We call this the green light song, and the sports section plays it every Wednesday night when they beat us (News) to deadline (I work for the University paper). It also happens to be the sort of song that you can't get out of your head, so for the next 3 hours someone's always humming it!

I have no idea what the actual name of the song is, but I thought I'd share the anecdote anyway :)

Ok..this is fun!

#6 - Right Back Where To Where We Started From - Maxine Nightingale

#11 - Up On The Roof - The Drifters

Vickie said...

Man, I am bad at this meme.

The only one that sounded familar is the first one and I still don't know the answer!

Mel said...

I feel like I should know more, but these are the ones I think I know for sure:
1 - Nasty - Janet Jackson
2 - He's My Brother - artist??
6 - Right Back Where We Started From - Artist?? I want to say Doobie Bros, but I'm not sure
7 - Womanizer - Britney Spears
11 - Up on the Roof - Oh, it's The somethings, but I don't remember what the somethings are. Drifters, maybe?

Darn .. I'm so late to the party but I have one that wasn't guessed already --

#15: Paperback Writer by the Beatles!

I am so going to have to play this game on my blog! Fo sho!
