A short musical interlude

I have been inspired by Keris to do this ipod meme thing.

Well...since I don't HAVE an ipod it's going to be an MP3 player and media player meme (but that's besides the point).

The rules (as stated by Marie) are "no repeat artists, no foreign muck, no songs where the title is in the first line, and nothing that even you with the title in front of you have no clue what it is"
So here you go folks.

1. Well I came upon a child of God. Woodstock by Joni Mitchell. Got by Mark.

2. You don't know how you met me, you don't know why. Follow Me by Uncle Kracker. Got by Mark.

3. I know it's getting late, but if you'd like to talk a little more. Sleazy Bed Track by The Bluetones. Got by Mark.

4. She said she needed a break, a little time to think. Ohio (Come Back to Texas) by Bowling for Soup. Got by Mark.

5. I'll light the fire, you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today. Our House by Crosby, Stills and Nash. Got by Emily (in two guesses).

6. I got my first real six-string. Summer of '69 by Bryan Adams. Got by Mark and Emily (although she got the artist wrong).

7. You got a reaction, you got a reaction didn't you? Blue Orchid by The White Stripes. Got by Mark.

8. Street's like a jungle. Girls & Boys by Blur. Got by Emily.

9. What you do speaks so loud I can't hear what you say. King of Bloke and Bird by Robbie Williams. Got by Michelle.

10. Sell the kids for food. In Bloom by Nirvana. Got by Mark.

11. In an upstairs room in Blackpool, by the side of a northern sea. Military Madness by Graham Nash.

12. Friday night I'm going nowhere, all the lights are changing green to red. Babylon by David Gray. Got by Emily.

13. Do you have the time to listen to me whine. Basket Case by Green Day. Got by Emily.

14. Four of us were having dinner and I threw down the paper with a curse. Tracks in the Dust by David Crosby.

15. I hate the world today, you're so good to me I know but I can't change. Bitch by Meredith Brooks. Got by Emily.

16. Three little birds sat on my window. Put Your Records On (Let Your Hair Down) by Corinne Bailey Rae. Got by Mark and Overnight Editor (combined).

17. I got a letter from a friend the other morning. Permanent Vacation by Aerosmith.

18. Where is the moment we needed the most? Bad Day by Daniel Powter. Got by Emily and Michelle (combined).

19. A wild ride, over stony ground. Animal by Def Leppard. Got by Mark.

20. Blue jean baby, LA lady. Tiny Dancer by Elton John. Got by Mark.

21. Got your tape and it changed my mind. Singing in my Sleep by Semisonic. Got by Emily.

22. He came dancing across the water with his galleons and guns. Cortez the Killer by Neil Young. (Best guitar intro ever).

23. Feeling blue, when I'm trying to forget the feeling that I miss you. Colourblind by Darius. Got by Michelle.

24. I thought I knew you, but I did not know myself. Turn Back the Pages by Stephen Stills.

25. Never win first place, I don't support the team. Don't Let Me Get Me by Pink. Got by Michelle

Good luck folks, I'll be updating as you get them.

Updated to show who guessed what and the final few answers.

I know Number 16 but not the title. It's something like "You've got to let your hair down".

Michelle said...

OK, I've had this CD (Intensive Care) since Christmas, and I hadn't really listened to it until nowish - and well, I did. Number 9 I think is King of Bloke and Bird by Robbie Williams. And because no one else will do it, number 23 is Colour Blind by Darius. And I think 25 is by Pink (because you said one is by Pink) but I don't know the title.

MarkFarley said...

Darius?

Semisonic?

Errr.... huh?
