Name That Tune

Would you like to play a game? No, I'm not going to to torture you to teach you a lesson.

I'll post the opening line from random tracks on the ol' iPod, and you guess the song and artist. My older readers may have some problems, but I expect Chris to get about 90%, since all of my best music was recommended by him.

1. Whatcha doin'? Nothin' Chillin'
2. And as the conversation drags I try to think of something quickly
3. I come from the land of the ice and snow
4. If I were you, and I wish that I were you.
5. There you go again when you brush up against my skin
6. You wake up in the morning and fall out of your bed
7. A thousand hands applaud tonight
8. Two hearts fading like a flower
9. One way streets and square-one
10. I know you broke up with him and your heart's still on a shelf
11. There's a uniform that's hanging in what's known as father's room
12. Take my money, wreck my song
13. Nobody really knows where they're supposed to go
14. You bag of shit, you suck
15. The fire flickers out making movies on her skin
16. So you wanted to take a break, slow it down some
17. It's easier not to be wise and measure these things by your brain
18. Richard Wagner's to his lover Mathilda were a mess
19. The boy only wanted to give mother something, and all of her roses had bloomed
20. Let me tell you the story of a man named Charlie on a tragic and fateful day
21. I know that something very strange is happenin' to my brain
22. Just a perfect day, drink Sangria in the park
23. A red suitcase she'll never miss, leather coat he used to wear
24. Somethings in the air tonight, the sky's alive with burning light
25. His eyes go funny, you can't place why

After doing this, the old folk may have a shot on this one. My upbringing listening to "oldies" really did affect me. Take your shot in the comments.

Your In 3 Notes leader.

Okay, I only know a few of these. I do much better at recognizing songs thru the music than the lyrics.

11 - Broad Black Brimmer - Wolf Tones (covered by The Tims)
12 - My Wasted Friends - Ike Reilly (and/or his Assassination)
14 - Titty Twister - Dieselboy
22 - Perfect Day - Lou Reed

You should check out TGIFdays at Maplewood Tuesday nights, 10-12. I'm doing Music Trivia with some co-workers and we usually place 1st or 2nd and win 25-50 buckeroos.

Peas Out!

I recognize 3 as a Zeppelin song but that's it. I don't listen to lyrics so I really suck at this.

I'm terrible at song titles, even when I know all of the words to the song I can't remember the titles. So this is all I got.
17. I Alone
24. Nothing Left To Lose
