A friend of mine at work participates in this big (charity) trivia competition every year in Ottawa.

Part of the competition (to be completed beforehand) involves listening to a bunch of clips of music and identifying the songs.

The rules state you can use any means necessary (i.e. asking friends, internet searches etc.) to determine the indentity of these piecees of music.

Anyway, she asked for my help. With a resource such as the Skank at my disposal, her team is bound to ace this portion!

Note: The song titles are in alphabetical order.

A-Aqualung

B-Blue Monday

C-Curried Soul

D-Down by the Glenside

E-Enter Sandman

F-Feel Good Inc.

G-Green Eggs & Ham

H-Hoedown

I-I feel fine

J-

K-Kosha Nostra Theme

L-Love Will Tear Us Apart

M-Mundian To Bach Ke

N-New Years day

O-On Broadway

P-Paralyzer

Q-Quarter to Three

R-Rockit

S-(Theme for) Shin Jingi Naki Tatakai

T-Town Called Malice

U-Umbrella

V-Voodoo Child

W-Walking After Midnight

X-X-Offender

Y-YMCA

Z-Zoom Zoom Zoom

Okay, I think I have a bit more info. Here are some guesses:

D Procol Harum - not sure what song

F Gorillaz - that song from the iPod commercial

G Bob Dylan - (obviously, but I can't nail the song)

H William Tell Overture - by some symphony

O On Broadway - by ?

W Patsy Cline - Walking After Midnite (spelled that American way, I believe)

X Dick Dale - not sure what song; maybe Wipeout?

h is definitely hoedown.

track 6 here (though this is a way better versio than the classical one they used in the mix)

http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=7398714&BAB=E

it's also known as "the beef commercial song" haha

s is weird because it's, i think, "Battle Without Honor Or Humaity - Tomoyasu Hotei" from the kill bill soundtrack. there is another track on that cd called super 16 which would fit but im pretty sure that clip is battle without....

track 9 here:

Yeah, it is. There was a website that someone posted on here a while back that had a Dylan imposter doing a bunch of Dr. Seuss songs.

That'd be Dylan Hears A Who, which has been de-activated at the request of the Dr. Seuss esate.

Aloha,

Brad

agreed. sure sounds like dick dale. very distinctive. not sure what songs begin with X, though.

M sounds like Multi Colour something, and from a Bollywood soundtrack or something.

and Q sounds like something by Modest Mouse to me. Ive heard it before, and think I have it, but like so many on this list, it's just on the tip of my tongue.

S is definitely that Tomoyasu Hotei track, but I guess they are using the other name for it: "(Theme for) Shin Jingi Naki Tatakai"

K is Kosha Nostra Theme by John Murphy (you can hear it on the Snatch soundtrack, it plays behind scenes with Boris 'The Blade' Yurinov)

you can hear it at the end of this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1xPiBB3-DM

and M is Mundian To Bach Ke by Punjabi MC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMR2MGuiq9s
