• Food and Drink Related Songs

    20 Jun 2008, 05:05 by echa83

    A good title complements a song, they said, but what about a song with food or drink in its title? Have you ever noticed that a song that’s humming in your ears at the moment mentions a food or drink in the title? How many are there, you ask? Apparently, there are a lot of them. So, what's with all these food and drink related songs? What are the stories behind these titles? What does the title mean? Does the title relate to the lyrics? What makes an artist came up with a thought "Uh, Quiche Lorraine sounds cool, why not create a song about it?" (little did I know, it’s actually a song about a pooch and has nothing to do with a certain classic French egg dish), or even with the craziest title you wouldn’t ever think of before, like this one, “The Half-Eaten Sausage Would Like to See You in His Office”? Who would ever think a song with such title really exists? Well, these might be some questions that cross our minds when we find one. …

    Step 1: Open up whatever you use to listen to music and add every song in your collection.
    Step 2: Put it on random.
    Step 3: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
    Step 4: Post and let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 5: Bold the songs that someone guesses correctly.
    Step 6: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    01. "Well, I'm trying hard to pass the time, but I just got more time to kill."

  • first line quiz: the 80s

    I've been seeing this quiz pop up in several journals (most notably Carali's) and I thought I'd drum something up along those lines. Here's how it works:

    Rules:

    Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
    Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    I'm narrowing the range in step 1 down to one of my 80s folders in the interest of not getting too obscure and keeping it thematic. Also, if the title appears in whole or in part in the opening line, I skipped it.

    Ready? Here goes...

    1. The silicon chip inside her head gets switched to overload I Don't Like Mondays
    2. Well I woke up this morning I was feeling fine
    3. See her laughing, talking, she's walking to the factory
    4. So windy and cold
