Oh, dear. I recognize too many of these on just a casual glance. Lessee....

#3 is, of course, Garbage: #1 Crush.
#7, well duh, O-Zone's Dragostea Din Tei.
#9, The Police, Don't Stand So Close To Me.
#16 is from Phantom and that's all I care to admit knowing.
#19, Paco, Putting on the Ritz.
#21 is The Bangles, Manic Monday.
#24 is Benny Mardones (sp?), Maniac.
#28 is the prophet himself, Rob Zombie, Living Dead Girl, probably my favorite of the bunch.
#29 is Behind Blue Eyes -- The Who, I believe.

And that's about all I can figure out.

I thought it was Taco instead of Paco? Either way you're right on all nine counts, or at least close enough for me.

You're right, Taco. The short-one-named one-hit-wonders of the '80s baffle me sometimes.

From: [identity profile] missmiah.livejournal.com


I love the one-hit-wonders. Especially when Shatner gets to host the VH1 specials for them.

This isn't fair, 'cause I'm way too familiar w/ your music collection.

2. All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, Heart. ... Baby.
4. Original Sin. ... I'm guessing the Taylor Dayne version.
11. Half! Breed!, Cher.
13. Heeeee. Christmas is All Around, Billy Mack. (Nighy if you're particular.)
17. Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Pat Benatar.
30. Mexican Radio, whooa-oh. Wall of Voodoo.

Hmm, everyone's already guessed the ones that I know, except #1: Transylvanian Concubine by Rasputina.

From: [identity profile] missmiah.livejournal.com


I'm surprised no one else got that sooner. Rasputina is love.

14. "Love Theme from 'Predator 2'", Predator 2 Soundtrack, Blondie
18. "Tea Bag", Shatner's Greatest Hits Vol 3, William Shatner
26. "Ballad of the Western Frenchman", Songs To Go With My Books, Louis L'Amour

From: [identity profile] missmiah.livejournal.com


Amazingly enough not one of those is on my playlist. Odd, isn't it?

Although I did just download Shatner's "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" last night.
