Game: what's on Dan's iPod?

Recommended Posts

It's been too boring around here for too long. We need some good old fashioned GL diversion. Here are the rules. My iPod has approximately one thousand albums on it. I will post a lyric from a song which is on my iPod. The first player to get the correct answer gets the point. The person who has the most points when I tire of the game shall be the winner. I have a stronger Google-Fu than almost anyone else here, and I can smell when lesser Googlers are dipping into the well. No Googling. Title of song, and artist are required for a point. Album title is just good form, and legal showboating.

 

Go to it. The first lyric is an easy one. "I won't wait up reading Das Kapital watching Home Shopping Club."

 

I've done that. It's oddly gratifying.

Correct. Round Two.

That's good for a point.

We'll call that close enough for government work. The song in question is titled "Virtue & Vice."

 

Next up, something less easy.

 

"... look at the tears roll down the street."

 

(Bonus points for getting the real artist and not a cover artist.)

I'll count that, even if all persons should know that it is a song by the King of the Slide Guitar, Elmore James.

 

So far, I've just posted a lyric from whatever song happened to be playing at the time. They keep getting a little bit harder by coincidence.

Someone has some class. That's good to know.

Mine too. I agree on Hey Dude, but 303 was the one that was playing when I typed that. I remember the week that "K" was released, Howard Stern spent about half an hour playing Govinda and singing alternative lyrics like "Hayley Mills is my mama, mama..."

 

Ok. Next up, an easy one:

 

"Have you been half asleep, and have you heard voices?"

That's it. The next one is in a similar vein.

 

"D-d-danger, watch behind you."

If the name I put into iTunes was right, the song is performed by Jeff Pescetto. Also, DuckTales is one word. Ooh-woo-ooh.

Hm. Forty-eight hours and no one got "Museum of Idiots" by They Might Be Giants. Interesting. Perhaps you'll get something louder and more offensive.

GNR --One in a Million

 

One of the more offensive mainstream songs... except everything by Cannibal Corpse... and Lords of Acid...

A lot more people left the GNR show I saw offended than did at the Lords of Acid performance I attended. But, Axl did cause a riot, so that might have been part of it.

Yes, that was "My Morning Song" by the Black Crowes.

 

This one's easy, but it is the song that is playing as I type this, so it's the one I go with.
