Turns out this is a bit of a pain on my iTunes, since I have a lot of stuff that's just not applicable - lots of classical, and a couple of audio books, plus bird calls for all the birds in the western United States. Sorta hard to quote the "Olive Warbler," huh? And I have a LOT of opera, which would have been impossible, even for me. (No, I can't identify every bit of recitative in Don Giovanni, either). ::grin: In creating this, at least three-quarters of the things that come up just weren't quotable. So, these aren't the first twenty songs to come up - but hopefully they are all guessable. :D
I thought about being really evil and putting in the lyrics to a Gloria, and seeing if anyone could randomly guess which one it was. Bwahahahaha! (But in the end, I didn't). ::grin:: I did include one opera aria, but it's REALLY EASY (I was SO happy when this one came up so I could include it in good conscience), and I'm sure someone will be able to guess. And a few of the songs are difficult - at least they seem that way to me. So we'll see how it goes.
In case you don't know the drill, if you know the name and/or artist, make a comment. I'll cross songs off the list as they are guessed. :) And there are some showtunes in there, so for those, give me the song title and show title (extra points for naming the composer).
I know you in autumn and I must be there
Knew that I would make it if I tried.
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they'll still talk about us when we've died.
Bend my ear I'm not gonna go away
You are love so why do you shed a tear?
Bueno pa gosar mulata.
Running across the meadow
Picking up lots of forget-me-nots
Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?
Il n'a jamais, jamais connu de loi,
Si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime,
Mais je t'aime, prends garde a toi!
That when the fiddler plays
All their voices can be heard
Long past their woodland days
So c'mon and bring your jukebox money.
Knows not where he’s going to,
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Can the child within my heart rise above
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
If you won’t take me with you
I’ll go before night is through
You're just a ghost, and my heart is haunted
When I said goodbye, you didn't even beg me to stay.
It made me mad mad mad
I’m thrown and overblown with bliss.
Ohh, we get together
But seperate's always better when there's feelings involved
But I can show you a better time
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
in chains of history --
requests your earthly presence at
the vicarage for tea.
