Music Lives!

Name That Tune Answers, Oct. 19,2011

I know I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I got too busy seeing live music! The first 7 questions were taken directly from my blog posts A Special Tribute, and Once More…With Feeling! respectively. I do get silly by number 8 though. The number after the artist is the length of time, in seconds, I played the track, for our live studio audience.

Songs For My Funeral
1. Amazing Grace – Leann Rimes – 14
2. Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen – 14
3. Angel – Sarah McLachlan – 14
4. My Way – Frank Sinatra – 8
5. Hurt – Johnny Cash
6. Pictures Of You – The Cure – 16
7. Free Bird – Lynyrd Skynyrd – 6
So this is where I went silly and started adding conditions for songs to be played…
If I were to die, and never marry, and my League Of Evil Exes are at my funeral, and are mad I never married them, you could play this song…
8. Single Ladies – Beyonce – 2

If that song were played, this should be played right after, as a reason why I didn’t marry them. I would never say this in real life. So don’t mess with dead me, I go low-brow!
9. Bitches Ain’t Shit – Ben Folds – 10
If, for whatever reason, I’m buried in my leather pants (Yes, I have leather pants), play this song.
10. I Remember You – Skid Row – 13
I would be so lucky to die involving a misadventure involving the song title, and if I do, play this song at my funeral.
11. S&M – Rihanna – 2
If I died and went to heaven….
12. Get The Party Started – Pink – 12
Everyone I know would insist this be played at my funeral….
13. Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) – The Offspring – 6
If I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the mythical creatures from the Twilight series were having one of their battles, and I accidentally got killed. You could play the next two songs.
14. Drain The Blood – The Distillers – 8
15. Werewolves Of London – Warren Zevon – 9
If I were killed by Zombies…
16. Eat My Brain – The Odds – 9
Died in a time machine accident…
17. Power of Love – Huey Lewis & the News – 2 (That’s a Back To The Future joke BTW!)
If I died today…
18. Sexy And I Know It – LMFAO – 18
Assassinated…
19. Sure Shot – Beastie Boys – 6
If I were to die in an explosion, from one of these, play this song…
20. Time Bomb – Rancid 5
