I'm weening myself off these games, so I won't throw any guesses into the mix right now. I am very pleased, however, to find 14 on this list. Great song, and I fear not enough people have heard it!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I know what you mean about these games. This about took it all out of me, and that's why it will be my last. And speaking of 14, that's just a **** album anyway.

Even harder to run one than to play one, isn't it?

And yes, 14 is from a terrific album, one I believe that improves with each spin.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

here are my guesses so far:
22 - Belong by REM
27 - Dear God by XTC
37 - William It Was Really Nothing by the Smiths
39 - Damnation by Squirrel Nut Zippers
47 - Last Day of Our Acquaintance by Sinead O'Connor
50 - Catch by the Cure

All's right taryn, except #39...

aw man, i knew that wasn't right! how bout Female of the Species by Space? (anybody know if the rest of their stuff is any good? i've only heard that one tune...)

Man...that's it...you're on a roll.

so far i only have one to offer...

1. Champagne Supernova by Oasis

#3. Waved Out by Robert Pollard
#4. Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac
#5. Between Something And Nothing by The Ocean Blue
#7. The Old Grunt by Guided By Voices

Give me some time to investigate and I'll come up with some more of these. They sound familiar.

All right brother..

#29. A Good Flying Bird by GBV
#31. Demons and Avalanches by Butterglory
#41. Last Train To London by ELO
#43. Love Plus One by Haircut 100
#65. Is that, man it sounds familiar..gosh...Is that Stars by Hum. I think..maybe?

It's an honor to be called a turd nugget from greg.

30. Buffalo Girls - Malcom Maclaren
48. Once In a Lifetime - Talking Heads
59. Christmas In New York Shane McGowan/Kirsty MacColl (RIP)

#38 wrong
#48 right
#59 on the right track..keep looking

a couple more tries:
64 - Frankly, Mr. Shankly by the Smiths

and is 63 High & Dry by Radiohead? (i believe their line is "you'd kill yourself for recognition" but it's close enough that i thought i'd ask.)

You da bomb taryn...Yeah I really botched the Radiohead tune, huh? I guess my memory didn't serve me so well on that one. Good job.

#82 is "Who Sucked out the Feeling" by Superdrag, an excellent band


is #19 Sheryl Crow "Strong Enough"?

and yep

9 & 10 have been bugging me for days...
FINALLY--9 is Like a Rolling Stone, Dylan.
10 is Tomorrow Never Knows, the Beatles.
And 40 is the Dixie Chicks, Cowboy Take Me Away;
53 is It's Too Late by Carole King;
73 is Sex & Candy, Marcy Playground

You da man Min...right on all accounts. Super Duper job..

Lets have some fun shall we?

72. Bit Part by The Lemonheads
74. I Am A Scientist by Guided By Voices

right right

aw cool, 83 is one of my favorite REM lines ever... from These Days, i believe.

That's right taryn...kudos, that was kind of a tough one.

30 = "Whip-Smart" by Liz Phair. I luff her.

That makes two of us....you're right on the answer. muy bien

42 is Titch by Neds.

#11 is Your Name Is Wild by Guided By Voices.

righty-o brother.

I'm ashamed to know this one, but:
#33-OMC 'How Bizarre'

And is #51 'Goody Two-Shoes' from Adam Ant?

Why would you be ashamed??? Anyway, to answer your question...no, but that's a good guess.

26 is Tori's She's Your Cocaine isn't it?

Sounds like it! =)

#69 is "Untitled" by the Cure, from Disintegration.

#56 is driving me CRAZY!!! I know that song, dammit!

can I have a hint...please!

Hmm..is #59 "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues? I may have the title slightly wrong.

Is #77 Nick Lowe's Cruel to Be Kind?

25. "All the Young Dudes" which was performed by Mott the Hoople but I think it was written and sung by Bowie.
35. "Not Fade Away" Buddy Holly. I've got this one in my lyric quiz as well as 59. which is one of the most bittersweet songs about getting thrown in jail on Christmas ever, "Fairytale of New York" by Shane McGowen of the Pogues.

#85 is "Bye Bye Bad Man" by the Stone Roses

#33 - OMC - How Bizarre

#59--Fairytale in New York--The Pogues

#71 is We've Only Just Begun by The Carpenters
