Here's a little idea I sort of stole from Scooter McGavin.... I have given the first line of a song... You post the title and artist in the comments, and I will unbold it and give you credit for guessing it... See how many of these you can get without turning to google...

#1 Longer Than - Dan Folgerberg

#3 Christmas In Hollis - Run-DMC

#5 is really bugging me, I hope it comes to me soon or I might not be able to sleep tonight.

Scooter said...

I know why I was having problems with number 5, I was thinking it was Lenny Kravitz, but after almost a half an hour of repeating the line in my head I finally figured out it was the Black Crows' Remedy. Now I can sleep.

Guppyman said...

#1 is wrong Scooter... the rest are right so far....

Off the top of my head:

2. Rush - Trees
14. Grand Funk Railroad - We're an American Band (this song is now stuck in my head! ahhhh! lol)
16. Def Leppard - Let it go
19. Matchbox 20 - Push


I'm still thinking on the others... most of them seem familiar to me...

#17 was also done by Iron Maiden... who I loved to rock out to in the late 70's.

Jetting Through Life said...

Always worth a shot Guppy!! Thanks!

7 is "Peace Sells but Who's Buying" by Megadeth.

Glyn (Zaphod) Evans said...

I meant 6.... :D

BeckEye said...

#12 is She Talks to Angels by the Black Crows? I think?? Yes, that's my guess.

#11 is Hair of the Dog by Nazareth.

Guppyman said...

Right on 11... wrong on 12

BeckEye said...

Wait, no I got it....and I didn't google it...I frickin' love Tesla!! I knew it was a sandpaper voiced guy...and I kept singing that line followed by "and who is the reason you're living for who's the reason for your smile"...and somehow that went into .."They say she talks to angels". Duh. I'm splicing them together. It's Love Song! Right? Now I'm second guessing myself again because I can't remember the part that comes after the part I just said. And that was voted the favorite song my senior year in HS.

BeckEye said...

Dammit...it's What You Give not Love Song...finally the rest of it came to me...but I still think I'm missing that one verse.

Guppyman said...

Yay! She finally got it with What You Give! WTG!

Guppyman said...

Who's the one that makes you happy?
Or maybe, who's the one always on your mind?
And who is the reason you're livin' for?
Who's the reason for your smile?

I feel so lonely, yet I know I'm not the only one
To ever feel this way.
I love ya so much that I think I'm goin' insane.
I'm goin' crazy, outta my head.
Goin' crazy, outta my head.
Can't think about nothin' but your good, good love,
And what you give.

BeckEye said...

WEll thank you...turns out I wasn't missing a verse after all! Man, getting older is a bitch. :)

Bridget Unnel said...

Impressed with the inclusion of Rush! Excellent song that will probably now be stuck in my head all day...

Presentstorm said...
