The Answers to the Questions

I am a little disappointed. I thought for sure these would get a few more guesses. I'd like to do a name that tune post about once a month, please let me know your thoughts, whether you all would like to try try again. Here are Friday's answers:
  1. Second Hand News - Fleetwood Mac
  2. Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
  3. Me & Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
  4. Diamonds and Pearls - Prince & the New Power Generation
  5. Atomic Dog - George Clinton and the Parliment Funkadelic
  6. Hot, Hot, Hot - The Cure
  7. Tripping Billies - Dave Matthews Band
  8. Champagne High - Sister Hazel
  9. One - Metallica
  10. The Right Stuff - New Kids on the Block (tee-hee)
  11. All I Want - Toad the Wet Sprocket
  12. Southern Cross - Crosby, Stills, and Nash
  13. Peaches - The Presidents (y'all guessed this one)
  14. Crazy Bitch - Buck Cherry (SERIOUSLY give it a listen, it's my favorite driving around/blasting the radio song. Very Shocking)
  15. Chains of Love - Erasure
  16. The Fields of Athenry - Irish folk song. don't know who sings it
  17. Down - 311
  18. The Tide is High - Blondie
  19. Use your Love - The Outfield
  20. Kiss Me Deadly - Lita Ford

Because they weren't all guessed, no valuable prizes. Maybe next time....if there is a next time. I sound ominous. I like ominous. This is what happens when I have no sleep.

WE'll see :)

Since I need to redeem my music knowledge cred after my guessing fiasco, the song title is "Your Love." I should know because I played that album to death back when I wore sweater vests.

I also have to give Von props for a very nice mix of old and new bands. There's something for everyone there.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Sweater vests and white leather shoes?! :)

Von said...

Brando, mea culpa - you are correct! No need to redeem yourself, just try again next time! And thanks, I did try to mix it up!

billy pilgrim said...

maybe a bit more of lyric?

I would have known a couple more if I had a bit more to go on.

Of course, I could have just gazoogled the whole mess and seemed like a genius, but even I'm not that desperate for validation.....

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Yeah you are since you thought of it, BP!


Von said...

Fair enough BP, and I agree. THe next time (in a few weeks) I will include a few more lyrics for each. Thanks for not cheatin'/googlin'.

billy pilgrim said...

Don't include any mekons lyrics though. Cuz I would NEVER be able to guess those.

AG caught me. Desperate indeed. I'm going home now.

Von said...

Or, should I throw in a mekons to get you enticed? Hm....
