23:35 - it's name that tune!! // memeage

Previous Entry Share Flag Next Entry

it's that name-that-tune music meme thing. looks fun..

Problem is, I don't listen to playlists -- I just pick an album and tell the thing to play. So I'll just mix this with the "put all your songs on random" one from a while back.

step one: queue up every mp3 you have (yes, even the embarrasing ones) and tell your player to play them at random.
step two: post a line of lyrics from each of the first twenty (that have lyrics) it plays (try to avoid posting the song title as part of the line).
step three: strikeout the lines as people correctly guess them (without using google).
step four:
step five: Profit!

1: no matter how he tried he could not break free. And the worms ate into his brain. Pink Floyd Hey You guessed by aaangyl
2: Touring companies stay away / Rats and mice take the centre stage / Carpenter’s mate have a field day
3: in your monkey suit on a cigarette break / the lunchtime crowd, they won't even blink / but you'd be sad if they did
4: But I’m getting higher, / Lifted up on lucks’ circus wire ’til the...
5: Well world disasters, they come and go. / I'd give all my strength to be back home
6: Coffee in my coffee cup's, / Only good for taken me on a ride. / And I don't know which way I'm goin', / But I'll dive right in and hope I come out fine.
7: A stroke would be nice / Disease would be cool / I'll scatter his ashes in my new swimming pool
8: Brains wants to rule the heart / Heart wants to tie the hands / Unseat the assassin in me
9: Little ones, my sons and my daughters / Your sweat is salty / I am why / I am why / I am why
10: And I haven't felt so alive in years Depeche Mode But Not Tonight guessed by gravilim
11: Listen to our pretty song, we are happy as the day is long / Forget the things you thought you knew, / we'll make a very good girl of you
12: We're doing fine on the One and Nine line / On the L we're doin' swell / On the number Ten bus we fight and fuss / Ya know we're thorough in the boroughs 'cause that's a must
13: Just looking for the smile I give to you
14: I don't want you to hide this way is too far don't need to delve and call my first case
15: This good luck charm hanging off my arm / Was left here by the police They Might Be Giants Birds Fly guessed by noodlboy
16: Fragile to the waves / Vicissitudes of days / when i am with you / i feel a little brave
17: Did you really think you could pull it off / The perfect crime, crime of the heart?
18: got a gun, fact i got two / that's ok man, cuz i love god Pearl Jam Glorified G guessed by mamarhi
19: We all came out to montreux / On the lake geneva shoreline / To make records with a mobile / We didn’t have much time
20: Always ready when you hold me steady / Unplug the phone / Press my buzzer and ring my bell / Just me and you, pretending we’re not home

for the curious, I had to skip 21 songs that didn't have lyrics

I've included more than just one line in some cases where I feel it might me a tad difficult -- the goal is not to make them impossible, I think. That, and knowing the musical tastes of those reading this I'm fairly certain some of these will never be guessed.

yeah, it was tough picking lyrics for that one that would be at all difficult. :)

yes to the TMBG, but not that song. nope, just listened to "She's Actual Size" and it doesn't have that line in it ('cause, ya know, they could use the same line twice and I just wanted to make sure). Not even that album, actually.

Argh, this is gonna drive me crazy now. Must... not... google!!!!

It's an earlier album, darn it. I thougt it was from an older song than Actual Size, but that just wouldn't clear out. Grar.

Okay, it FINALLY clicked, so I remember more of the lyrics, but I still don't know what the song is called...

It's followed with "And the microscope, reveals the scope, of my very best intentions. Oh yes the dotted line shines twice as bright (and I never understood what the hell they said next. Sounds like, "on the only last part of me"). Heh. So, I know the darned song... but I don't know the name!!! I think it's off Misc. T, but could be wrong about that.

yup, that's the song..
and, technically, it's not *immediatly* followed by those lines, there's a little more between them.

Bah, I just looked it up. I wouldn't have known the name anyway. I never knew it was called that. And I was correct about the order of the lyrics. The second time in the song that the handcuff line is used, it is followed with the lyrics I quoted. ^_^ At any rate... I guess I get no point since I didn't know the actual name. Poo.

Yeah, it's in my collection, and I'm sure I've SEEN the track name, but I never really payed that much attention, I guess. I guess I could have looked on my iPod for song titles, but that seems about the same as looking it up on google.

I would argue not, since you knew the song, but just couldn't remember the exact name. The point of not using Google is because with Google you just type in the line I give you and it spits back the artist and song, you need never have heard the song before.

In fact, for a few of these I didn't know the exact title, but I knew it was by so-and-so artist and is on a particular album I have, so I just grabbed der'Pod and scrolled through that album's listing and when I thought I had it I listened to the song to be sure.
It just said you couldn't use goolge, didn't say anything about your personal music collection. Given that you had the lyrics and knew which album it's on, I'd say you could still guess it since you knew which song it was without google, just not the actual name, which you would have gotten from your collection without google.

Well, hmph. I posted the album (I wasn't sure of it, but I guessed it right) and the lyrics before I googled... so, I'd think that would count anyway, since it was apparent that I knew the song. Only the title was achieved by my Google search. But it's your call. Heehee. I feel like I'm trying to talk you into giving me a better grade on my test or something. Heh. Aw, c'mon teach, I showed all my work and had it right, I just didn't remember the name of the theorum. Can't you give me the point?

sure, but you still haven't posted it, and if someone else gets it before you they'd still be the first to post the title/artist. :)
