SoopaMusicGeek Meme, Vol 1, Round 3
i'm ready for my close up mr demille
No I haven't forgotten about this, just haven't had the time to do the next round.  I've struck a few from the game because I discovered I had the lyrics incorrect, so I figured it'd be simpler just to remove them.  There are only 16 remaining of the original 50 and we are up to eight words of the lyric snippet.  I have moved all of the unsolved lyrics to the top to make it a little easier to access after clicking the cut and as usual, all of the solved ones are listed with who got it. #12 has become ridiculously obvious this round... the rest, well, go take a look. :)

For those of you keeping score at home ruxxell is kicking everyone's butt with 11, with kristinkay close behind with 9... no one else is even close. Of course it's not about competition it's about fun... but I thought I oughta give some props to the two best players.  Have fun.

I feel like I should do one of these for my own peace of mind.

And speaking of peace of mind:

#13 is "Natural Woman", and I believe that Aretha Franklin was the first to sing it.

you are correct, young lady... the reason i think i got the lyrics a tad wrong is, the way i wrote them out here is the way i've always "heard" that line... but after checking some printed lyrics sources on line, a lot of them list it as "your love is the key to my peace of mind"... so, i don't know if that's they was Carol King wrote it and Lady Soul just went with her own phrasing, or if i just never heard Ms. Franklin correctly all these years... i'll need to go back and listen to the song sometime and pay more attention :)

p.s. feel free to do your own! i'd love to be able to play in one that i hadn't created :)

incidentally, here's the original entry if you care... :)

#6 Lynard Skynard - "Free Bird"
#19 Led Zeppelin - "Whole Lotta Love"

yes to both... white trash clasic rock reprazent!

#4 is The Kinks "Lola"
#6 is "Freebird" Lynyrd Skynyrd
#15 is "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and I'm assuming that's the Temptations, but maybe they didn't do it first.
#24 is Foreigner - "Hot Blooded"
#25 is Billy Joel - "Still Rock n' Roll To Me"
#28 is "Blowin' in the Wind", which, I think Bob Dylan did first.

Fuck. I would have kicked this game's ass. I wish I'd started playing from the beginning.

yes to all... although i think yourtourniquet technically got #6 precisely 1 minute faster than you did ;-)

yeah i was surprised to not see you playing... i guess with the holidays and work and all ya just missed it :)

12. Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash

it's about damn time ;-)

16: beat it by michael jackson

42 is jailhouse rock by elvis.
