WBLM A-Z: Got A New Game For Ya To Play Along With…
Some fun stuff to do while you're hanging out with The-Blimp-In-Alphabetical-Order: Trying to predict which artists have the most songs? How many live versions are better than their studio counterparts?
A lot of Blimpsters are fans of trying to predict the next "naturally occurring double-shot" ("All The Way From Memphis" by Mott The Hoople, followed by their version of "All The Young Dudes" was a good one) or howzabout this for a challenge:
How many instances are there where the titles may be the same, but they're actually two completely different songs? So far, from "A" to "K", we've come across about 40 different match-ups. Some are train wrecks (see #8), some are killer-diller (cheers for #2). In alphabetical order of course, here are ten that stand out...
(10.) "Bad Reputation" - Joan Jett and Thin Lizzy.
(9.) "Changes" - David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne and Yes.
(8.) "Domino" - Van Morrison and Kiss.
(7.) "Dreams" - Fleetwood Mac and Van Halen.
(6.) "Fire" - Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown.
(5.) "Fire On The Mountain" - Grateful Dead and The Marshall Tucker Band.
(4.) "Heaven" - Bryan Adams, The Rolling Stones and Warrant.
(3.) "Hey You" - Pink Floyd and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
(2.) "I Need You" - The Beatles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, America and Paul Carrack.
(1.) "It's My Life" - Bon Jovi and The Animals.
If you have any that you might think we might have missed (or if there are some on the way that you don't want us to forget about), feel free to chime in and let us know what they are. We can use all the help we can get...
