Song titles game

Memed from meathiel - spell your username in song titles. I restricted myself to songs on my hard drive to make it a bit more interesting (although I do have a lot of music on my hard drive, so I wasn't exactly restricting my choices by much!)



S - Somebody To Love, Queen
W - Wonderwall, Oasis
O - Obviously, McFly
R - Radio Nowhere, Bruce Springsteen
D - Don't Turn Around, Aswad
Z - Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie
N - Nothing Is Keeping You Here, a-ha
S - Suicide Is Painless, Manic Street Preachers
O - On The Sunny Side Of The Street, Dean Martin
R - Run To You, Bryan Adams
C - Carrie, Cliff Richard
E - Eee-O-Eleven, Sammy Davis, Jr
R - Rock This Joint, The Max Weinberg 7
Y - You Really Got Me, The Kinks

If I'd had the foresight to call myself Sswworddznssorcceery, I'd also have included the following:

Start Me Up, The Rolling Stones
What's The Frequency, Kenneth?, REM
Don't Be Cruel, Elvis Presley
Sunday Girl, Blondie
Come Dance With Me, Frank Sinatra
Electric Avenue, Eddy Grant

And my grateful thanks to David Bowie. If it hadn't been for Ziggy Stardust, I don't know what I would have done! Twenty years ago when I signed up for Geocities, that Z looked like a good idea. It does occasionally have its downside though...

So do I! I would ask if you're going to give it a go, but with the length of your name, it might take you all day. ;)

I still love Wonderwall. Utterly meaningless, endlessly poignant. And it makes me think of the scenes where it's used in The O.C.

I'm not a McFly bod, unlike half the rest of the family. But as far as boy bands go, I caught a clip yesterday of Harry Styles correcting a fan's punctuation from 'YOU'RE BIGGEST FAN!' on a sign, to 'YOUR BIGGEST FAN!' So, I'm totally re-thinking boy bands, and rock on Harry Styles! May go seek out some smutty 1-D fanfic: there's nothing more erotic than a man who knows where an apostrophe properly goes.

I do love Run To You. Cheesy AOR classics, they're classic for a reason. And Start Me Up is one of my favourite Stones tracks. As for the Sammy and Max Weinberg, checking those out now!

I'll nick this meme, then. Seems like a great excuse to spend a morning listening to music and calling it productive...

I love the Max 7. They were a live band really, and only put out the one album, but I listen to it loads. It's spectacularly bouncy and uplifting. As to McFly, I don't know how they caught me, but I am unashamedly a fan! That first album was very 60s-pop-flavoured, and I was impressed by their musicianship. They're properly talented, and I really like their fourth album, "Radio:active", which they put out after dumping their old production team, and deciding they were going to be properly grown up.

I shall look forward to seeing what you come up with! :)

Yes, thank the Gods for David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust ... :D

Nice choices, though of course I don't know all of these and am - as usual - not allwed to watch some of them. :-(

Oh, blast. I went for official links as much as possible in the hope that that wouldn't happen! Somebody on my f-list has done this meme as well, and a couple of her links didn't work for me either. Sometimes you can find a song elsewhere on YT that does work, but often not. It's so annoying...

It's got to do with German copyright laws - we're not allowed to see a lot of vids that are openly available in other countries. Unfortunately. :-(

Sucks, doesn't it. I support artists' rights, obviously, but copyright laws are so out of date now. All countries need to rethink them.

Your name is made up of some good songs there! And thanks for the links, it'd been a while since I heard Don't Turn Around & I like that lots. :-)

Yes, it is a good song, isn't it! Aswad were a good band. My favourite of theirs is Give A Little Love.
