Correct. and the lyrical errors had a lot to do with bad google searches or me just tryiong ver hard to figure out what I heard.
23rd-Jun-2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
hehe

Thanks for the entertainment at work this morning. I needed something to keep me awake.
23rd-Jun-2007 04:42 pm (UTC)
It's cool. I was just half awake when I started this, and then LJ erassed the fisrt set when I had it at 26. Which means I lost a few like "My Name is not Susan" by Whitney. Beginning to think I should have used my old rule about no 2 by the same artist. Ah well, shit happens.

yep and yep:)
23rd-Jun-2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
18. I see a red door and I want to *song title* - Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
23rd-Jun-2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
yep:)

6) "Feed the Tree" by Belly?
28) "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" by Panic! At the Disco
40) "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers
46) "Perfect Situation" by Weezer
49) "Poison" by BBD (Bell Biv Devoe for the uncool)
23rd-Jun-2007 07:54 pm (UTC)
Correct on all counts. Bonus points for getting BBD. Figured that one and a few of the indie-punk songs would be the real stumpers;)
23rd-Jun-2007 08:38 pm (UTC)
I appreciate the bonus points but I have to decline. Much like with Belly, I'd be letting down all white folks raised in the suburbs in the early 90s if I didn't know Bell Biv Devoe.
24th-Jun-2007 05:37 am (UTC)
You'd be amazed. But yeah, even us rural boys got introduced to the BBD and every other band that went by its initials back in the day.

Eh, grab more coffee and come back to it:)
23rd-Jun-2007 08:30 pm (UTC)
42 is P control by prince
24th-Jun-2007 05:33 am (UTC)
Yep. One of his best dirty songs.
23rd-Jun-2007 08:37 pm (UTC)
17) Why Can't I by Liz Phair

24) Seperate Ways by Journey

24th-Jun-2007 05:34 am (UTC)
Yes and yes. Much as I laugh at Journey in the '80s, I do like that song.
23rd-Jun-2007 08:45 pm (UTC)
And a couple more now that I'm home from work and able to think a bit more clearly:

9) "Your Eyes" by the whiny straight guy in Rent. Didn't he realize that his best song was the one where he whined about wanting to have a good song?

43) "Fade to Black" by Metallica, although I'm guessing yours is Apop.
24th-Jun-2007 05:38 am (UTC)
Evidently he didn't. I think Mimi came back just to bitch slap him.

And yeah, but I do have both versions.
24th-Jun-2007 05:39 am (UTC)
Props to you for having both versions and not fitting any stereotypes. :Þ
24th-Jun-2007 05:52 am (UTC)
I do recall a time when I like James and Lars. And the Napster and Load happened.

Me, a stereotype? never...
24th-Jun-2007 02:30 am (UTC)
#30, Modern Love, David Bowie
24th-Jun-2007 05:39 am (UTC)
Correct. And one of his best efforts.
