via belvane, pelig, passacaglio and others.

A bit of a problem there, since most of my playlists are usually whole-album lists, by artist. So I’ll settle for this, where none of the songs are performed by the original artists. Not that it should matter.

Update: Only three left unrecognized! Come on guys, you can do better than that.

  1. How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see?
  2. I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
  3. Where troubles melt like lemondrops, away above the chimney-tops.
  4. When the skies that we look upon shall crumble and fall, and the mountains tumble to the sea.
  5. But the hills that we climbed were just seasons out of time.
  6. I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes. I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.
  7. The beat was going strong, and they were playing my favorite song.
  8. In the quiet of a railway station, running scared.
  9. Mama looks down and spits on the ground every time my name gets mentioned.
  10. What’s so amazing that keeps us star-gazing?
  11. Snowflakes that stay on your nose and eye lashes.
  12. You’ve brought me fame-and-fortune-and-everything-that-goes-with-it.
  13. You broke my will – but what a thrill.
  14. And the way she looked was way beyond compare.
  15. But will my heart be broken When the night meets the morning sun?
  16. I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.
  17. I’m on the hunt, I’m after you.
  18. Don’t go out tonight, it’s bound to take your life.
  19. This will be the day that I die.
  20. I’m gonna be the man who’s lonely without you.

I agree, but you don’t get any points for not naming it!
Oh, all right. Have your points. See if I care.

Was either naming or even points the point? Okay, Kermit! “Rainbow Connection” it is.

The point was to guess the song and artist, but if you DO guess, it’s not really nice to keep it to yourself, is it?
Share the Kermit!

Specifically, my version was by Me First And The Gimme Gimme’s, as were half the songs on the list.

Nice…

Just a point or two as always:

Stand By Me / Ben E. King
Hungry Like The Wolf / Duran Duran

I reckon the Dylan quote didn’t give you much trouble. 🙂

Yeah. It’s not very different, though.

Two points for Calanya, and we’re left with only one – and one I thought would be easy, too!

My two pennies

Well. I can’t believe no one knew this one. #3 is Somewhere over the rainbow, though I bet yours was the Meet Joe Black version, and not the original.

Other ones is a Stones, but am not sure about what’s it called.
