09:59 am - Monday Morning Music Meme Madness!
So I saw this in fmith's and cucumbersarnies's journals, and it looks fun. Basically, you have to identify a musical artist...based on a picture. I know! Who knows what these people look like? Now, you're supposed to do the standard "put your music player on shuffle" thing, but I'm at work, so I'm just picking my top 20 artists. Which makes this sort of easier and less random than it would be otherwise. So, as a bonus, if you guess an artist, you also have to guess my favorite song. Of course, I may not have a well-defined "favorite song" for some artists, but I'll give you brownie points for getting at least one. Or so.

All right, keep your specs peeled.

And a special bonus one since no one will get it anyway:

All right!

And nice icon! I really like that shot of her in the credits, especially the way it works with the music.

You didn't do the favorite song part, dude.

Well done! (Obviously, the correct answer to 2 is NIN, but since NIN basically...is Trent Reznor, I will accept it.)

Care to guess favorite songs?

I suck at this. I'm not guessing fave songs, because I had nary a clue for any of them. And because I don't know that many songs by most of these peoples. (Not surprising, considering I don't know who most of these peoples are!)

1. Garbage
2. Trent Reznor
3. Queens of the Stone Age (I see by others' posts that it's wrong, which I kind of suspected)
5. Teagan & Sara
7. Green Day
9. Sonic Youth
11. Nirvana
16. Foo Fighters

Everyone's already gotten to most of the ones I know, except:

9. Eddie from Ohio.

Favorite song? Um... "Eddie's Concubine"? "Tommy the Canexican"?

Someone already guessed EFO. Heh.

But no one's gotten my favorite song, which is neither of those, although I love them both.

Yay, someone finally got Ash! All the others are right, as you obviously know.

Well, if you sift through the comments, I THINK almost all of them have been guessed.

Now it's time to guess my favorite songs! Play!

Is the Garbage song, "My Lover's Box"? I would have gone with "Milk", but I think that was a single.

Ladytron - "Blue Jeans"

Nope, that's not the Garbage song.

And, holy crap, you got the Ladytron song! I could claim my favorite song is "Playgirl," and it was for the longest time, but I think I listen to "Blue Jeans" a lot more now. It's such a lovely, haunting song.

Eh, I recognized Tegan and Sara and Green Day...

What is interesting to note, though, is that most of your pictures are named for their artist... so clicking to save the picture brings up the answer in most cases. :D Just thought you'd like to know. :D

I've heard one Animal Collective song. It was weird. Actually, I got it from jeeperstseepers.

I love Interpol.

I think I've heard of Stephen Malkmus, but not the others.

Ooh, someone finally got Ivy, yay! Dominique Dunne is so pretty.

"Edge of the Ocean" is not it, but it's on that album.
