(no subject)

I got this idea from urbeatle, although I'm not sure if he originated it or not. The rules are:

  • Post the names of 20 of your favorite bands / musicians
  • See who can guess which is your favorite song by each.
  • Once someone guesses right, bold that row and include the song.

Here's my list of bands. I tried to get some variety in, and to avoid bands that nobody would have heard of, but we will see how successful I was.

  1. Aretha Franklin
  2. Bessie Smith
  3. Bo Diddley
  4. Bob Dylan
  5. Bonnie Raitt
  6. Chuck Berry -- No Particular Place To Go
  7. The Coasters
  8. Dr. John
  9. Erin McKeown
  10. Freezepop -- Here Comes A Special Boy
  11. Gillian Welch
  12. Grandmaster Flash
  13. The Ink Spots
  14. Johnny Cash
  15. Lucinda Williams -- Passionate Kisses
  16. Mono Puff
  17. Talking Heads
  18. They Might Be Giants
  19. Wilson Pickett -- Man and a Half
  20. Interrobang Cartel

urbeatle refrained from picking any cover songs, so maybe I should warn you that I didn't follow that rule.
