A deranged blog redux

I was going to just bump the music meme post, but then I figured what the hell, I’d create a brand new post, with hints! for the ones that haven’t been guessed yet.

  1. Sister can you hear me now the ringing in your ears
    Okay, this is by a three-piece band. Obscure, imo. They formed at the university of Mass in the 80’s and might be regarded as alt rock[1] though they have gone a little folk at times.
    Congrats to Copper-Copper/zilbosco for getting this one.
  2. If I were to die murdered in cold blood tomorrow would you feel sorrow or show love or would it matter
    This is rap. And well known. Technically not the first line, but the first line by the main artist, and I’d regard it as the start of the song.
    Copper-copper again with Eminem’s When The Music Stops
  3. Hey girl, I’ve seen you looking at me, am I the one that you want?
    And Irish artist. Not hugely well-known. But fantastic.
    NM has guessed the artist, it is Declan O’Rourke
  4. Light me a smoke, I’ll tell you a story
    One of my favourite artists. He’s a solo artist and I suppose he is indie.
    NM again with the artist; Tom McRae
  5. This heartbreak’s never ending it’s like it never happened
    This band are from Northern Ireland, but formed in Scotland.
    Copper-Copper gets the artist, Snow Patrol
  6. you’re an american girl red headed eyes blank
    An American band who lead singer was addicted to drugs when he was ten. Used to be signed to 4AD. Don’t know why I’m giving this info away, cause it wouldn’t help me
    And, yes, it is Copper-Copper again, with Red House Painters – New Jersey
  7. The ponies run, the girls are young, the odds are there to beat Artist is Leonard Cohen, as Anne revealed.
    I surprised that no one has even guessed the singer here. He’s quite famous. From Canada. And to give it away, A reviewer once remarked tongue-in-cheek that his albums should be sold with razor blades. I’ll leave you to guess the song yourself.

Linknotes:

  1. do not take any of my labels to heart, or een accept them as correct. Music is music is music to me

    14 would be James Blunt, then… Haha.
    And 20 Leonard Cohen?

  2. Fence says:

    NO, I have no Blunt. Take it back. take it back.

    But yes, 20 is Cohen. Well spotted.

  3. NineMoons says:

    I'm GUESSING here but is number 14 Tom McRae? And guessing again, number 11 is Declan O'Rourke?

    Serious guessing and not a hope in hell that I know the song titles. And maybe it's the other way round. But howanever.

    Speaking of the Limp Evil that is Blunt, I finally figured out the cause of my Plague. The night before I woke up to spend a merry 24 hours throwing up, I was watching the match in the Beloved's cousin's flat. The cousin (male) shares with another cousin (female) – a pink, frilly, SATC-addicted, gay-man-dating fool. She obviously owned some Blunt because when I leaned an elbow on the computer table, I accidentally TOUCHED a Blunt CD. And as if that wasn't bad enough, when I turned around to speak to my friend later on, I felt something rubbing my shoulder. I thought the Beloved was being affectionate. But no! the evil fecker was rubbing the Blunt CD against me! Argh.

    Cause of horrible week-long illness solved. Blunt. Rhymes with…

    Afraid that none of this helps me the least bit, except to give me an idea of how to handle the unguessed songs on my blog. And to assure my faith in this world – to know that others find James Blunt's music to be a crime against all that is right and good.

  5. NineMoons says:

    Amen. So say we all!

  6. copper copper says:

    Hey!

    These are hard.

    Four guesses

    1) Tail lights fade – Tom Bufflo

    2) Emimen – When the music stops

    7) Snow Patrol ????

    8) Red House Painters – New Jersey

  7. Fence says:

    Congrats peoples, almost there now. Just need some titles. I'll reveal all on Monday if there are still some unknowns.

    And Ann, we all despise The Blunt, join us :)

  8. NineMoons says:

    Copper-Copper MUST be googling. No-one is this good at guessing songs – both mine AND yours! :-D

    I'm so proud of myself for wild-stabbing those two correctly! I just thought of your music collection and guessed.

    Copper, baby, I didn't mean to tell you to change your name back. But I do like it. I'm just so selfish… :-)

  9. sally says:

    Hey, James Blunt is GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. copper copper says:

    No not googling just reading my inlay sleeves from albums I own and guessing, ….guessing mostly.

    I met the maddest two people in fermanagh today at work!!!!

    I can actually say they were the maddest I've ever met in my lifetime. Plus I have a new nickname from work…..Skud. Because I attract all the mental calls and cases and people. Colleagues are afraid to work with me now!!!!

  11. Fence says:

    Possibly Sally, but a god of bad music and whiny voice.

    That is an achievement I suppose CC, you'll have to start your own blog detailing your adventures at work.

  12. NineMoons says:

    CC – Thorn emailed me today to show me a pic of THE DRESS!!! She bought it on Saturday and it's so pretty. She wanted to send it to you too much I wasn't sure which address – told her to use your (old?) netscape one AND the new gmail one so that you should be able to get it!

  14. Fence says:

    mish, you might want to hold on to that eternal respect for a moment, I've only the one song by them and that is it. Although it is a favourite of mine. I really should look for more
