New Year's Day by U2


Joeman under a blood red sky = Winner!!

This song was the band's first big hit.


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

And now, in the category "American Civil War", name that song...

This popular marching tune sings of an object that "lies a-moldering in the grave".
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Welcome to the game, unJon!

I was on a boat today and heard this song play. Haven’t been following this thread so sorry if my posting is against thread etiquette.

I’m not sorry

Nope, as the original part of the thread was almost 10 years old, I don't think the OP would mind much! Gialmere revived it a few months ago. He seems to keep things in order around here, but AFAIK, anybody can post a song.

Or if this song was posted already.

Sorry, not sorry.

Nope.

I'd try to answer this one, but since I already answered another one today, I'll leave this one for someone else.

Here’s one to start the holiday off.

All together now, God made man!
But he used the monkey to do it
Apes in the plan
We're all here to prove it
I can walk like an ape, talk like an ape, I can do what monkey do
God made man
But a monkey supplied the glue



Okay, here’s a hint.

They are not men.

Ooh. Is this
King Louie's song ("Walk like you?") from Disney's The Jungle Book?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Glory Glory Hallewinner!!

Yes, abolitionist John Brown whose raid on Harpers Ferry was defeated by US forces commanded (oddly enough) by Colonel Robert E. Lee. The song lyrics were considered crude prompting a friend of poet Julia Ward Howe to suggest she write some good words to the stirring music. The result (as mentioned) was "The Battle Hymn of the Republic".

From the hint it's obviously DEVO although I don't know this particuler song.

And now, in the category "Big Band", name that song...

You leave the Pennsylvania station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
Dinner in the diner, nothing could be finer
Then to have your ham and eggs in Carolina
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

1) Close enough.

The song is called “Jocko Homo”, but everyone knows it as “We Are Devo”


2) My mom used to sing that to us when we were little.

Hey, I'll take a half win. I wish I gotten into Devo more. As it is, I only really know "Whip It" and "Through Being Cool".

Choo Choo Winner!!

The original Glenn Miller recording of this classic swing tune was the first song to win a gold record.

Bus driver, please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison and my love, she holds the key

Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree. At least it would rhyme with the last line, and I don't know any other 70's songs about buses, prison, and love! :)
