Answers GQ2: The Revenge - Round 5

None of y'all managed to get'em all this round either. Specifically, the songs you were somewhat successful in recognizing were:
  • Song 121: KISS - Crazy, Crazy Nights. I'm not even remotely close to being a fan of KISS, but this tune is kinda' kewl. Plus, I've logged some time playing this live, so I'm liking it just fine.
  • Song 122: Gary Moore - Empty Rooms. Alas, none of y'all found this song, which is one of Gary Moore's biggest hits, and a perennial favorite on power ballad compilations. Buy some Gary Moore CD's now folks, starting with Wild Frontier.
  • Song 123: Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication. Ya know; I actually thought this would be a quite difficult one to figure out, since there are approximately five billion songs out there with that chord progression and in that tempo, but for whatever reason every single one of y'all found this song. Color me impressed.
  • Song 124: Talk Talk/No Doubt - It's My Life. Another song that y'all found, and despite No Doubt having had a monster hit with a cover of this song, I believe every single one of you included Talk Talk. Most impressive.
  • Song 125: Poison - I Won't Forget You. Pigeon; you actually answered Poison on this one, for which you deserve mucho props. You were the only one who got even close on this song though, which is a typical hair metal power ballad we used to include in almost every set we played. Yes; I think Poison is a cool band, and I'm not afraid to admit it.
This means that the Score after Round 5 stands as follows:
  1. Anders/Sondre (tied at 6 points)
  2. ...
  3. Pigeon (5 points)
  4. Cathy (4 points)
The Total Score
consequently stands as:
  1. Sondre (30 points)
  2. Cathy/Anders (tied at 28 points)
  3. ...
  4. Pigeon (21 points)
Congrats to Anders and Sondre
and good luck with Round 6!

Poison, is that a band? I thought it was an Alice Cooper tune...
:-D

My bad for not getting Empty Rooms. Even though I'm not a hooooge GM fan, ER is a classic ballad. And probably Gary Moore's fourth most famous song.

Once you have admitted watching the Eurovision Song Contest, these confessions seem easier, don't they? How 'bout some Kenny G.?
:-D

Tru dat...lol at fourth most famous

How 'bout some Kenny G.?

Why Anders; that's a mighty nice offer, but Kenny G really ain't my bag. You accodentally bought two copies of the same cd or somethin'?

lol at fourth most famous

He, he. I was wondering if you were gonna get that one.
:-D

Why Anders; that's a mighty nice offer, but Kenny G really ain't my bag.

I'm just saying, that there is a strong correlation between people here at the blog that likes Eurovision and Poison. Just wanted to check if this correlation is valid for Kenny G. as well. You know, since you already stated that you would book Kenny for a intimate house concert at your place if you had the money.

I you can't have Kenny G, you can for sure book Mc Hammer. He's so broke that he would play his two songs almost for free.

...so is there anything else you're "just sayin'" while you're at it?

Nice spin chief - that Sophistry 101 class sure came handy, huh? :-)

Hey now! Dude had three - count'em; three - songs: "U Can't Touch This", "Pray" and "Have You Seen Her". I'm assuming you didn't include his most famous song due to the epic ripping off of Rick James?

How come you guys know at least two more Hammer tunes then I do? I had to google the guy, and guess what? Did you guys know that his album "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em" is the alltime best selling rap album (You like rap, no, Wilhelm?)? Same site has this line in his bio that got to be the most accurate and to the point description of Mr. Hammer:
...he was never able to duplicate that level of success, and even if his street credibility was virtually non-existent...
Lack of success and street cred? Yeah, that's Hammer, alright!

Wilhelm said...

...wasn't his LAST album titled "Too Legit To Quit"?
