name that tune

It's the random playlist meme! Bear in mind that I don't really have too much music on my computer, because I don't download much on my crappy dial up, so it's virtually all stuff I was burning for other people, and so there are a few songs on the list by the same artists. But can you identify them?

1. She only shook her hips but I saw it
2. Did you know I love you? I almost forgot.
3. But it's good, good, good when it's good, and boy it is good to be back
4. Can't you see the poison moon? It's calling to you.
5. You are the latest contender, you are the one to remember
6. Dear landlord, please don't put a price on my soul
7. you don't feel you could love me but I feel you could
8. ray charles calls you his sunshine, but you're the apple of my eye
9. John the Baptist in the park getting laid thinking there's noone looking
10. I'm not the kind of man that acts very strong when the girls are looking on
11. You wanna hear my long snake moan
12. you're addressing the world from your bed, all alone in the crowd like you said
13. The corn was golden, we lay in it for days
14. Baby can't you see I'm calling? A guy like you should wear a warning.
15. On my 26th day of being alone, I hung out of the window by the telephone
16. Bad news, bad news come to me where I sleep, turn turn turn again
17. Jennifer, we can't go wrong, let's put it right
18. I don't need no man, get my kicks for free
19. Is y'all alright? I don't know, but I know what's happened to me, girl.
20. Night falls, I fall and where were you? Where were you?

7 is Paul Simon! Um, um, um... it's Gumboots, isn't it? The one with the inexplicable name. I'm lost on all the rest - so hard to do this without the music.

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes...from Graceland?
Apr. 30th, 2004 07:48 am (UTC)
It is indeed Gumboots! Heh, we must both have Graceland on our 'puters...

In a freakish sibling-coincidence thang, I am actually listening to number 16 e'en as I type (and will probably be listening to it for some time, given that it's very long) - it's "Percy's Song" by Fairport Convention.

Number 3 is Liz Phair, though I can't remember the name of the song. I had it stuck in my head for literally about a month last year. Must get those songs again, as I had them on the 'puter in my old job.

Number 7 is Paul Simon, yes? Though again, I can't remember the name of the song. Gah, I am rubbish at remembering song names.

Number 17 is "Jennifer She Said" by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions.

Right on all counts! Song 3 is called 'Fine Again' - I downloaded it onto my old 'puter - which I then gave to David - and just salvaged it last night.

And I should hope you'd get number 17...

I may get you to copy said Liz Phair song for me, if you don't mind and have access to CD-burning equipment. Though I may end up having it stuck in my head again.

5 I'm pretty sure is a Franz Ferdinand track, but I can't remember what.
14 is Britney - Toxic. It helps that it was the last thing I heard on the radio just before I got home.
18 - one of the Sugababes recent tracks? Can't remember which one, but I don't think it's Freak Like Me.
Apr. 30th, 2004 08:41 am (UTC)
Yes, 5 is Darts of Pleasure by Franz Ferdinand, 14 is Toxic, and 18 is indeed the Sugababes- 'Round Round'. Bravo!
Apr. 30th, 2004 08:55 am (UTC)
Bollocks, yes! Sugababes! Dave's rather good at this game, isn't he?
Apr. 30th, 2004 09:17 am (UTC)
He is! It must be all those weird puzzles he has to do this week, sharpening his lateral thinking skills...
Apr. 30th, 2004 09:46 am (UTC)
Nothing to do with that - I just like these kind of things :-)
Apr. 30th, 2004 12:16 pm (UTC)
Ack! And I recognised "get my kicks for free" but I thought it must be a different song, because I always sing "Don't need no love, get my kicks for free". Curses!
Apr. 30th, 2004 10:21 am (UTC)
8 is Bell X1 (Eve, The Apple of my Eye), right?
May. 1st, 2004 05:03 am (UTC)
Heavens, no! It's 'Can't Nobody Love You' by the Zombies. Sorry!
May. 1st, 2004 05:13 am (UTC)
Um. Wow. I really *am* crap at these quizzes ;-)
May. 1st, 2004 11:25 am (UTC)
I know no. 20 is the song from Conversation With Dead People, which I think was written especially for the show by Joss Whedon and is called Blue but I can't remember who sings it.

I recognise others but I'm so crap with music.
May. 1st, 2004 12:46 pm (UTC)
You're right, it is the song from CWDP! It's one of the few things I've downloaded, because I loved that song and it stuck in my head for months. I found the name a while ago and googled it until I found a place I could download it from. It's by someone called Angie Hart from a band called Splendid.
May. 1st, 2004 11:52 am (UTC)
Other people got Paul Simon & Liz Phair before me, but isn't number 2 Tim Buckley & number nine Al Stewart?
May. 1st, 2004 12:28 pm (UTC)
No 9 is Al Stewart! Bravo! And number 2 is actually Matthew Sweet.
May. 1st, 2004 11:54 am (UTC)
Oh! I know the Sugababe's one. Isn't it also the theme from 'Girls in Love'?
