Advantages: GETS BRAIN MATTER GOING.
Disadvantages: mAKES YOU FEEL OLD!
Well , As promised, I shall attempt this challenge!
The rules are fool proof, though as I have read loads of reviews on this already I get the inkling that the rules change ever so slightly as each review is written! But, I shall say the rules as I think they apply, coz I knows you will ALL correct me if I am wrong!
There are three main rules:
1) Use All letters of the alphabet.
2) You can use groups or solo artists.
3) state the reason for your choice.
Ok Off we jolly well go then...........
Song title: Whats the name of your game.
The reason, and only reason I have chosen this is because of the challenge I now attempt. I am only on the first one and already my brain matter is sending conflicting messages! Should the song title be the A, oe should the Artist be A! Oh whatever, I will go on as I have begun.
B= BARRY MANILOW:
Song title: Even now.
A lovely ballad that tells you he is walking up the stairs to bed with the wrong woman. TYPICAL!
C= CHRIS DeBURGH:
Song title: Lady in red.
This song gets requested by so many people on late night love songs radio. I know its a bit of a cheesy number now, but then again it is a classic.
D= DAVID ESSEX:
Song title: Hold me close.
I went to see him live in coventry years ago. He had just formed his new backing band, And where he sings ' more than a pretty face' his band shouted out ' I don't think so'.
Up until that point the night was a flop. But then he sang hold me close and came into the audience. It was a great night after that.
E= EVERLEY BROTHERS:
Song title: Ebony eyes.
This is on the flip side of another song they did. Played accidently on a radio station , It became a number one for them!
F= FREDDIE MURCURY:
Song title:The show must go on.
Regardless of what he suffered ,he was a proffesional to the end.
G= GARY GLITTER:
Song title: I lo
ve you love.
Was he trying to tell us exactly what he was in to with this song? ' we're still together after all that we've been through'?I can't believe I loved this guy with a passion in the 70's, only to hate him with a vengence in the 90's!
H= DEBBIE HARRY:
Song title: Sunday girl.
I loved her too in the 80's. I loved her hair, her make-up and wanted to be just like her! This song reminds me of how she also overcome alot of crap she endured during her carrer, including the death of her guitarist/boyfriend.
I= IAN DURY:
Song title: Hit me with your rhythmn stick.
I am beggining to see a pattern form here. What do you think? I seem to admire the artists that were not plastically formed. Those that stayed with it no matter what was going on in their lives. I loved Ian because although falling into a river at an early age, contracting polio, he stood and danced all the way through his acts, supported by his walking stick!
J= JANET JACKSON:
Song title: Rush rush;
Almost a hit for her, as well as another artist!
She was good in the earlier years, but now I feel she has lost all of her tact and had plasticated herself, somewhat like her brother.
K= KAREN WHITE:
Song title: Superwoman.
I think we have all been in this situation at one time or another where we feel we have been taken for granted. This song is sung so perfectly, with the voice to match the words. A big wake up call for alot of men in the 90's I think.
L= LIONEL RICHIE:
Song title: Hello.
I loved the song but the vidio that accompanied this was something else. A blind woman we find out in the end, has mastered his face in clay.
Song title: when I'm back on my feet again.
If you havn't had a chance to listen to this song, i strongly recommend it. This song got me through some tough times, he says that soon all his tears will be dryin
at he will look at the sun again, when he is back on his feet. A real song with meaningful lyrics.
N= NO DOUBT:
Song title: Don't speak.
Another real song, telling you that she needs no wors to see that he is having a conversation with her.
O= OTIS READING:
Song title: Sitting on the dock of a bay.
This is one we have all heard. Watching the tide, alone with our own thoughts.
P= PETULA CLARK:
Song title: Downtown.
I remember when I was really small this was a big hit. I like it as it reminds me of when my Mum was here.
Song title: We are the champions.
I think this is where I fail the challenge. But whatever, I shall continue!
This song has been used for intro's to many shows all over the world, football, concerts ect. A big hit for Queen but not one of my favourites.
R= RIGHT SAID FRED;
Song title: I'm too sexy for my shirt.
I entered a competition on mtv a few years ago and the prize was to get a call from right said fred. I phoned up, the guy took all my details and asked me what I would do if I was to speak to right said fred. I told him I would ask for his hand in mariage, just then he told me to look at my tv screen, and he was there waving, telling me to ask him! I was on the telly live with them!
S= STEVIE WONDER.
Song title: I just called to say I love you.
I dedicate this song to my daughter and her partner. They have achieved so much, she not even twenty, and him twenty two. He is now a fully pledged policeman, her a full admin , training to become an accountant. They both now live on oxford, adopted two kittens, and have a lovely home of their own! He calls her three times a day, just to tell her he loves her!
Song title: jitterbug boogie.
Iam a singer, and I have to warm up my audience on my own. So I play this as background music for my show, and it really gets the crowd going. It was also r
e famed af
ter' billy elliot' danced around in a tootoo with Julie walters.
song title:Under a blood red sky.
My ex husband went to see them at red rock, it was pouring with rain but said that on this song, the rain stopped, after it poured again. He has never been to a concert sinse, as he said that was the best he had ever been to and could
never be matched.
V= vera lynn:
Song title: White cliffs of dover.
I have to mention this lady, as my dream, or one of them, is to sing a welcome to all the soilders that will return back from the war.
W= WILL YOUNG:
Song title: Evergreen.
A hit for barbara striesand yonks ago, but now a hit for him. Sung with a passion.
OOOPPSSS! If I hadn't failed I have now! Ic an't think of anything, so put in that awful song by olivia you know who!
Song title: the only way is up.
I hatd her long neck bouncing around my screen. Her gibbon impersanation did nothing for me, and I am glad we don't have her on the telly anymore! I stand corrected!!! not yazoo!!!!!
Another good jiggy number! What more can I say!
Well I did hidiuosly in this one!
Give it a go coz the worst is peeps will say how crap you are, the best is that you complete it.
Might not of heard of most of these, but they do exist!
Thanks for reading.........
