And now, in the category "Gangsta", name that song...

Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancin
with a crime record like Charles Manson
AK-47 is the tool
Don't make me act the motherf----n fool
Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
I'm knockin n----z out tha box, daily
yo weekly, monthly and yearly
until them dumb motherf---ers see clearly
that I'm down with the capital C-P-T
Boy you can't f--- with me
So when I'm in your neighborhood, you better duck
Coz Ice Cube is crazy as f---
As I leave, believe I'm stompin
but when I come back, boy, I'm comin...



The seldom-sung and oft-censored third verse to Mr. Rogers' "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" theme song?


Here's another one in the Pop 60's category, and once again referencing Ruggero Leoncavallo's best-known opera:

Just like Pagliacci did,
I try to keep my sadness hid,
Smiling in the public eye,
But in my lonely room I cry...


Dog Hand



Man you guys are so White bread...😋 The guy's name is literally in the lyrics at the end of the verse.

Hint: The song name is the same as the Bio Pic about the Artist(s).

If you carefully examine the last four lines, you should be able to deduce the final words of the verse which are also this famous song's title.

Endless internet memes riff on this song's title.

Sorry “Ice G-Mere”, but does rap even qualify as a “song”? Does a song need to be sung?

I posted songs by an Italian opera singer and Bruce Springsteen. My music is so white bread, it wears a polo shirt with the collar up...

Heh. I'll see your Springsteen and Italian Opera and raise Shirley Temple with Gilbert and Sullivan.

Yes, I think rap is music (a song). It just gravitates toward the percussion end of things. It's not my cup of tea (what a white bread expression) and I like Keith Richards' take that he likes to be sung to, not yelled at, but it's certainly music.

Consider the song "Rock Island" from earlier in this thread. It's just salesmen chanting to the rhythm of a train. And, speaking of "The Music Man", Robert Preston pretty much talked his way through all those songs. Another example would be Rex Harrison talk/singing his way through "My Fair Lady".

And now, in the category "Depression Era", name that song...

Once I built a tower up to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done...

Brother Can You Spare A Dime


Ding! Ding! Winner!!

This song has an interesting history but it would be difficult to discuss due to the politics surrounding it.


----------------------------------

And now, in the category "Disco", name that song...

Gotta make a move to a town that's right for me
Town to keep me movin'
Keep me groovin' with some energy

Ding! Ding! Correct!!

This is another song that keeps getting used in films and on TV and so is continuously introduced to new generations.


----------------------------------

And now, in the category "Holiday Tunes", name that song...

First recorded in 1949, this Holiday classic was originally an instrumental piece (lyrics were added a year later) and was a hit record for the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Carol of the Bells. I remember hearing this first, very young, as an instrumental piece, and being surprised years later that it had words.

Sleigh Ride, by Leroy Anderson. Whenever the Boston Pops is shown performing it at a holiday concert, they get Santa Claus to do the whip crack sound effect.

Here's one from me, in the category Classical
Most people in the USA don't realize that it has lyrics; I left out the first line, as that's its title in Great Britain

Mother of the free
How shall we extol thee
Who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider
Shall thy bounds be set
God who made thee mighty
Make thee mightier yet
