The answers

These are the songs from the MP3 shuffle meme ten days or so ago. Most of them were guessed, which I find either gratifying (I did this well) or disturbing (my tastes are too predictable).

  1. The Four Seasons, “Save It for Me”
  2. Rosanne Cash, “Seven Year Ache”
  3. Fontella Bass, “Rescue Me” (a song often redone)
  4. Thomas Dolby, “She Blinded Me with Science”
  5. Len Barry, “1-2-3”
  6. The Cars, “My Best Friend’s Girl”
  7. Lee Dorsey, “Holy Cow” (a song often redone)
  8. Julian Lennon, “Valotte”
  9. The Beach Boys, “California Girls”
  10. Rod Stewart, “You Wear It Well”
  11. The Outsiders, “Time Won’t Let Me”
  12. Thompson Twins, “Hold Me Now”
  13. Clarence Carter, “Too Weak to Fight”
  14. Hanson, “MMMBop”
  15. The Chi-Lites, “Have You Seen Her”
  16. Stevie Wonder, “Sir Duke”
  17. Nick Lowe, “Cruel to Be Kind”
  18. T. Rex, “Bang a Gong (Get It On)”
  19. Robert Knight, “Everlasting Love” (a song often redone)
  20. Tears for Fears, “Head over Heels”
  21. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, “I Love Rock and Roll” (which was actually a remake)
  22. The American Breed, “Bend Me, Shape Me” (likewise)
  23. The Rolling Stones, “Time Is on My Side” (ditto)
  24. Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight”
  25. Black Sabbath, “Paranoid”
  26. King Crimson, “21st Century Schizoid Man”

Thanks to all who played and to those who spread it around to their own sites — and thanks to Michele, from whom I swiped it.
