Name That Tune (Music)

~ 100 buzzes
Join the fun game. Solve a name that tune puzzle, or post one.

The goal of the game is to be the first person to guess BOTH the song name, AND someone who recorded the tune.

Post: Post a small segment of a song lyric (six words is good, but the less words the tougher the puzzle.) Of course, it's good if you know who recorded it and the name.

Answer: Post your response as to the song name and artist. The only rule is:

NO FAIR LOOKING IT UP ON THE INTERNET.

It's up to the poster to verify the answer. One way to do it is find a link to the song on Youtube, and post it here.

That's it. Rock on.

    The next name that tune challenge. Name the artist and the song name, an no cheating looking it up. Join the hive at https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music
    This has to be some of the lamest dim witted lyrical verbiage anywhere, but then again,

    I doubt people listening to the song actually were straight enough to pay any attention to the words, even if one could make them out:

    "Oh, won't you come with me
    And take my hand
    Oh, won't you come with me
    And walk this land
    Please take my hand"

    Today's obscure contribution to the Name That Tune Hive. https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music It's a simple game, From the lyrics, name the song and artist, no looking it up. Arbitrary points offered to winners.

    I'm as old as the King of Sweden

    I can drink in Connecticut

    You're a year older than the Princess Anne

    I don't mean it as an unkind cut

    I'll never catch King Hailie Selassie

    And you'll never catch Princess Grace

    I think this may be too tough for most people, he said, flinging down the gauntlet, so if nobody tries this by tonight, I'll offer up the first hint.

    Seems one of my previous challenges got lost so here's a new one. The game: Identify the name of the song, and the artist without looking it up. Imaginary points are given to the winner.

    This is for advanced and strange music lovers. Name the artist and the name of the song. No searching.

    Join the game at https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music Here is the lyric snippet:

    "Mister Zoot Horn Rollo, hit that long lunar note, and let it float."

    OK. Here' a slightly different task. Name a song that either contains the work "monkey" in its title, or includes the word "monkey" in Its lyrics. Again, no fair looking it up.

    A point will be awarded for each answer that offers up the song name, artist, and optionally, the lyric line.

    Join the hive at: https://www.bebee.com/group/name-that-tune-music to play.

    PS. Obviously the picture isn't of a monkey, its of one of our "god dogs".

    #8 Good catch. Too Much Monkey Business was done by Chuck Berry if I recall. Yes. A relatively obscure song from long ago. Here's the vid: https://youtu.be/5b2w_nJLuvw

    OMHG, my brain won't stop thinking about this now. Magilla Gorrilla, but I've no idea who sang the title song, might have been a studio band. (He's real, he's ideal and he's awf'ly cute; he's an every-living doll in a monkey suit.)

    Well, The Lion Sleeps Tonight got solved in about 5 minutes, so here's something just a little more obscure. The piano is a clue. Name the song name, AND the artist:

    In America you'll get food to eat
    Won't have to run through the jungle
    And scuff up your feet

    "In the jungle, the might jungle...."
    No fair looking it up. First right answer wins a point.

    OK. Too damned easy. @Aleta Curry hit it on the nose, and named both one name of the tune, and one of the artists. Aleta collects a poin. (winners have to keep track on their own.Others include the Kingston Trio and Pete Seeger (who I saw perform this song. It' also has the name Wimmohway, and a few others. Here's a link to the Nylons, a Canadian accapella group performing it: https://youtu.be/hi4XmAbA7JU
