New Music Meme!

It's been a while since I did a music meme, so I decided to create my own. I made it a little different in that instead of posting daily or one song at a time, it is encouraging you to post three for the various categories I've created. Of course, you are welcome to post as many as you want and can do it in the traditional one per day if you like. I made this all up myself, but some of these questions are probably the same as ones in the past. Here it is in its entirety:

The Categorically Songful Music Meme

1. Favorite song with a color in the title.
2. Favorite song by a band with a color in its name.

16. Favorite song by a group who has been together over 30 years.

22. Song from band you believe is underplayed/underappreciated
23. Song you may have heard on the airwaves a couple times, but think it should be played more
24. Song you can't believe is never played.

Predictability

25. Song you knew from first listen would be a hit.
26. Song you are not surprised became a meme.
27. Song from an album of a band that you believe needs to venture out (into new styles or genres) more.

Unpredictablilty

28. Song that friends would be surprised you are into.
29. Song you do not believe belong to a particular band.
30. Song that became an unprecedented hit.

If you would like to share this quiz, you can copy/paste!





And now here is my answers for the first category:

Colors



1. Favorite song with a color in the title.

I am certain this was a question in one of the last music memes, where I just went with "Purple Rain" because it's one of my favorite songs.

Instead this time, I'll just go with New Order's Blue Monday.



2. Favorite song by a band with a color in its name.

The first band to pop up in my mind is Blue Oyster Cult. So I guess there is a whole "blue" theme going here.



MORE COWBELL!

3. Favorite song which evokes a particular color.

So I don't want to stray from my blue theme. The obvious answer would be "Blue (da ba dee)". That song was so overplayed in the late 90s. But instead I'll go with Styx's "Come Sail Away". No, not the Cartman version.

This is an interesting meme - and I cannot participate because I don't categorize songs that way, or know enough artists to fit all the categories to be honest :).

There are maybe a two dozen I know at least one album of, a dozen that I have listen to more than that and few still I could say I know well. Other than that, most are 'several hit wonders' for me.

I swear I replied to this yesterday but my reply disappeared which makes me wonder if I posted it in the wrong place. I tried looking around for it, but it seems like there is no way on LJ to track the comments you, yourself make.

Anyway, I feel like 90 percent of the music I listen to is from the 70s and 80s, but I guess I do know a lot of artists. I'm hoping someone will eventually participate, but I've seen like two other people on my friends list do these music memes. Maybe one of them will do it with me lol.

You'd be the first one doing it, so I hope you do!
