Scar Tissue - a musical meme

So yesterday, Avitable re-did a musical meme that he had participated in some years ago.  He posted his current answers and his answers from three years ago.  And I thought "What a great idea!".  So I nicked it.  The meme I did a few years ago was a little different, but the concept was the same.

If you want to see my original post, you can do so here.  But I'm gonna show you what I posted here anyway, so I wouldn't bother if I were you.  Last time I did this there were some cosmically weird answers.  Let's see what happens in Round 2.

The Rules

1. Put your iTunes/music player on Shuffle (use a stereo or a list of your favorite songs if you don’t have an iPod)
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT(this is in capital letters, so it is very serious. No hiding your show tunes, folks!)

(OK...I have to make one thing clear. I omitted all Jimmy Buffett from my answers unless it wound up being from Havana Daydreamin' - my favorite of his albums. So I did fast-forward past some Buffett, because if I didn't then about half the answers would have been his songs. Everything else is honest.  Earl)

IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY?
2007 - "Tiny Dancer" - Elton John. 2009 - "Skaravan" - The Scofflaws.

Doggie - there were a bunch in there that were awesome for the question. Waltz #1, All the Lazy Dykes, Suicidal Tendencies, etc...

But the September Morn answer gave me chills, yo! Wow.

Water Logged Canine said...

I thought the same thing, especially in light of recent conversations.

On a lighter note, I've already contacted a lawyer...because when I draft my will, best believe "We Call This Mutha Revenge!" is going to be blasting at my funeral!

This was fun...thanks!

i msut try this

and the 2 + 2 thing ?
i see you're not really the math sort.

Callie said...

Considering the music on my player right now is all Christmas music, I think I'll wait until after the holidays.

Pretty sweet answers!

sybil law said...

Now I KNOW we could hang out, drink, and listen to music!!

hello haha narf said...

i call shenanigans! thou shall not skip over jimmy!!

Bruce said...

Hmmm, while the concept is somewhat interesting, reading through your answers made me realize that musical tastes vary so much, and popular culture has become so diverse, that my responses would be meaningless. Mostly individual tracks from cinema sountracks and stuff from the 70s and 80s along with a bunch of trance. Hardly things I think most folks would recoqnize.

Of the songs that you quoted, I only know one, which is Time Loves a Hero by Little Feet (gawd I loved that band).

For a sampling of my musical tastes, (that haven't changed that much), I would link you to a blog I did about 3 years ago in a similar vein.

B.E. Earl said...

Doggie - If I outlast you (doubtful) consider it done!

Duder - you'd be surprised!

Callie - Xmas music counts too!

Sybil - Mos Def!

Becky - I know, but since I have all his albums on my iPod he would have shown up on half the answers. Seriously.

Bruce - I shall check it out!

"Somebody told me" that Killers stuffed their last hit in the "Italian Leather Sofa".

sorry, I couldn't resist

Artful Kisser said...

I reckon all Jimmy Buffet woulda been pretty entertaining. Someone who writes songs like "we are the people our parents warned us about" and "why don't we get drunk and screw" is just made for these memes. Otherwise, great list!

Avitable said...

This is definitely a fun meme to do - I like yours better than the stages of life one I did.
