Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #166 on: November 08, 2009, 07:33:24 PM »

I'm a bit confused. Is this list of recordings made up of whole albums, or albums and individual songs? Others are starting to guess individual songs that have been recorded too many times to count, so I'll throw these into the mix:

Dave Brubeck, "Take 5"

George Gershwin, "Rhapsody in Blue"

Glenn Miller, "In the Mood", "Pennsylvania 6-5000"

Andre Crouch, "My Tribute"

Hank Williams, "Lovesick Blues", "I'm So Lonesome, I Could Cry", "Cold, Cold Heart". Pretty much the whole Hank Williams catalog should be on here, but I'll start with these. And yes, Allhallowsday, I saw that you posted one of his albums. I wanted to, but I didn't know where to start.

and another album:
John Williams, the Star Wars soundtrack.

I believe that yes, this list does include both full albums, as well as variouls singles that have been released.  However, it doesn't include just a certain song, but a song as recorded by a specific person, ie "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby rather than "White Christmas" by The Platters or Twisted Sister.

Best of the MC5," "Django," "Raw Power," and "Elvis." +0.5 for "Tutti Frutti" (appears on "The Georgia Peach") "Miserlou (appears on "King of the Surf Guitar") "Who Do You Love" (appears on "Bo Diddley") "Scrapple from the Apple" (appears on "A Studio Chronicle") "West End Blues" (on "The Complete Hot 5s and 7s), and "Maybelline" (appears on "The Anthology").  +2 for "Body and Soul."  "Elvis Presley" was already guessed.

That's correct.  "Recordings" includes both albums and singles.  If you guess a single and it was on his list AS a single, I give +2.  If you guess a single and it appears as part of a compilation, I give +0.5.  If the single doesn't appear at all it's -1.

Derf: -1 each for "Take 5" (I was shocked, maybe my biggest disagreement) "My Tribute," "Star Wars" and Glenn Miller tunes (no Glenn Miller). +1 for "Rhapsody in Blue" (it counts as a classical work, not a single).  No points for Hank Williams singles since AHD already nailed "Hank Williams 40 Greatest Hits." Net: -3.

Circus_Circus +18, Newt +10, DCA +3, Jack +2, Pilgermann +1, Doggett + 0.5, Jim H. 0, Voltron 0, Happy Gilmore -0.5, The Burgomaster -1, BTM 1-, The DarkSider -1, WilliamWeird -1, Andrew -3, xXx_JaseSF_xXx -3, Derf -7, Allhallowsday -7

Hey, REV, aren't ya glad you started this thread?   Wink 


I'm SO glad that I started this thread that I'm bringing it to an end tomorrow!  I'll give you guys 24 more hours, until 9 PM Eastern Standard time tomorrow, to get in your best bets.  There are a couple of recordings I thought would be fairly obvious that still haven't been named.

I don't see anyone catching Circus.

Jase: +1 for "Murmur."  -1 for "Document," "Rage Against the Machine," "Static Age" and "Green River." Net: -3.

Happy: +1 for "O Brother." -1 for "Walk Among Us," "The C.D. Version of the First Two Records," "Surfer Rosa," "Like a Virgin," and "No Fences."  1984 was already mentioned (not on the list) so  I won't deduct a point. Net: -4.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #175 on: November 08, 2009, 11:22:41 PM »

Well, apparently I have very different ideas than this guy of "must hear" recordings. So let's see if I can get the low score with recordings that I feel should be on the list (which means I'm not going to resort to Mylie Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers just to get obvious misses):

Nat "King" Cole: "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)", "Mona Lisa", "Ramblin' Rose"

Lisa Loeb: Firecracker

Sting: Dream of the Blue Turtles, Nothing Like the Sun

Barry Manilow: Barry Manilow II, Tryin' to Get the Feeling

Lyle Lovett: Joshua Judges Ruth

Amy Grant: El Shaddai

John Philip Sousa: "The Star and Stripes Forever"

Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass: Whipped Cream and Other Delights

Randy Travis: Alway & Forever, Old 8 X 10

Cab Calloway: "Minnie the Moocher"

The Mills Brothers: "Paper Doll"

Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters: Their Complete Recordings Together

The Andrews Sisters: "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy", "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree"

Leon Redbone: Double Time

Note: Album titles are italicized; song titles are in quotation marks.

Oh oh: I cannot be on much tomorrow, so I had better make this all one shot (I was wondering how the Rev was finding the time to tabulate results - I know I am having a hard time keeping track of what has been said)

Chris de Burgh: Spanish Train
The Byrds: Mr Tambourine Man
Alice Cooper: Schoolís Out
The Animals:  House of the Rising Sun
J S Bach: The Brandenburg Concertos

BTM: Prepare to be surprised (I am).  There's no version of "O Fortunata" on the list.  I think that's a big mistake. -1. 

Hmm.. this guy is starting to lose credibility with me...

How about the Areosmyth/Run DMC version of "Walk This Way"?  Has to be the first time (I know of anywhere) where a rock and rap group recorded a song together.
