Music Meme Monday – ABC

Okay, here’s another that you don’t need an iPod or iTunes to play…it’s actually more fun and more challenging if you don’t!

Super simple – go through the alphabet and list either a song titles or bands whose name starts with the corresponding letter.  Skip if you get stumped – just go through once, quickly.   If nothing else, this should get you thinking about songs and bands you haven’t heard in ages – which you can then add to your current playlist.  (Not to mention all the songs/bands the rest of us can find by cruising your lists!)  Of course, per the norm, extra points are given for comments on your choices.

And, a word about “memes” and “link-ups”.  I totally get that you may not want to waste a post on your blog to play along…but that’s no reason you SHOULDN’T play, and that your can’t link your blog, too!  You can always put your answers down in this thread on our Forum, and still link your blog under the Mr. Linky Magical Widget below!  (Just comment and tell us where your answers are – lol!)

The purpose of the Linky Widget is so that we can all find more fun blogs to read and meet new folks who love music, too.  I’m seriously not trying to take over your blog with music once a week – lol!  😉

So – here goes nothing!  I vow not to use anything but memory for this…first thing that comes into my head.  I’m doing bands:

A.  Adam Ant
B.  Blondie
C.  Cross Canadian Ragweed
D.  Delbert McClinton
E.  Eurythmics
F.  Florence and the Machine
G.  Gogol Bordello
H.  Hanson (oh. my. cheeses.  Did I just say HANSON??)
I.  Iggy Pop
J.  Janis Joplin
K.  Kansas (okay, the first that popped into my head was Ke$ha – but I eliminated her on the grounds that I can’t stand her.)
L.  Laura Marling  (I love her so!)
M.  Metallica
N.  Noah and the Whale
O.  Ozzy Osborne No.  Wait.  Make that Of Montreal.
P.  Pink Floyd
Q.  Quarterflash (and immediately I start singing “I’m gonna harden my heart…gonna swallow my tears…”)
R.  Reckless Kelly
S.  Sting
T.  Townes Van Zandt (who bet money on THIS pick of mine? hehehe)
U.  Uriah Heep
V.  Van Halen
W.  Wilson Phillips (ooohhhh, sheese.  How embarrassing!)
X.  XTC
Y.  Yes
Z.  Zevon…(as in Warren Zevon.  That’s all I could come up with!)

And, because I love to do it, I’m adding a playlist – but you TOTALLY don’t have to!  I’ll work on that now and add it in a few, but you g’head and get started – and remember to LINK UP!


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones
