Happy Vinyl Day!

This is a meme from konagod that may be fun or it may be tedious (see Furious' meme). I'm sure it'll be fine, except for the fact that my iPod is actually Toast's old iPod and I haven't updated it with music that I want on it yet. This could be an exercise then, even for me. And I'm going with Angelos' suggestion of only doing 10 songs. And I hope I have enough (borrowed) readers to play. :) Here we go...

1. New York snow this time of year
There's nothing more beautiful to me
Except for you
Making my way on the town and down

2. Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husband's a CPA
1985 - Bowling for Soup(Susan got it!)

3. She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
Rocket Man - Elton John(Got it - Wilde)

4. There's a man I've found
Could bring us all joy!
There's a doctor I've found can cure the boy!
A doctor I've found can cure the boy!
There's a Doctor I've Found - The Who (Mike got it, better late than never)

5. Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
cause there's a million things to be
You know that there are
If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out - Cat Stevens(Wilde again - from an old favorite movie of Toast's - "Harry and Maude")

6. Hey! Hey! You! You!
I don’t like your girlfriend!
No way! No way!
I think you need a new one
Girlfriend - Avril Levigne(Yay, Angelos!)

7. Revvin' up your engine
Listen to her howlin' roar
Metal under tension
Beggin' you to touch and go
Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins from the Top Gun soundtrack and while he tried to leave it for VMH, Angelos got this one!

8. Don't think me unkind
Words are hard to find
The only cheques I've left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da - The Police(Joolz got this one - Welcome!)

9. Sitting in my class
Just drifting away
Staring into the windows of the world
I can't hear the teacher

10. I never knew that a kid like me
Could take his mic around the world and flash the big S.D.
And rock the masses, from Madrid to Calabassas
Tijuana, Mexico, bootleg demos in Tokyo

Okay, I only did songs that I know, so it's relatively representative of my music. Have fun!

I'm recusing myself since, as Tracy notes, this is mostly my own stuff.

Eric Wilde said...

3 = Elton John, "Rocketman"

I recognize 5; but, can't place the artist.

Eric Wilde said...

got it!

Cat Stevens, "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out"

jOoLz said...

heh... i only know one, #8. it's de do do do de da da da by the police!

konagod said...

I'm purely guessing as always since I've only gotten one right after looking at hundreds... but

#7 could be Judas Priest, but no idea what.

#9 could be Pink Floyd from .. Oh I dunno, that classic thing.

I'm such a failure at this.

Chris Howard said...

Damn you Wilde! You got the only two songs I've recognized on any of these.

Angelos said...

6, Avril Lavigne, Girlfriend

I'll leave #7 alone until VMH shows up.

Susan said...

2. Bowling for Soup--1985!!!

Yay, I got one!

Angelos said...

Fuck VMH.

Dnager Zone.

Mike said...

Sorry to show up so late for this, but No. 4 is from Tommy.

Can't remember the name of the song, though. "Eyesight for the Blind" or something like that.

I know the song too: "there's a doctor I found can cure our sorrow, he lives in the next town, let's see him tomorrow."
