Your Favorite Song

I like doing surveys or memes, and we all know MySpace is chock full of them, but I don't always share them here because I know no one cares enough to read my answers all the way through. (Except for a few people, the only visitors I get are Googlers looking for free charts, and I can't even get my friends to read my blog.) But I must post this survey that I found on Michelle's MySpace. It's kind of long and might take you awhile, but if you're a music geek, you'll enjoy doing it. And, if you decide to fill it out, please let me know so I can read your answers.

Fill in your favorite song by each band/artist.

24. Run-DMC
"It's Tricky"

25. Elton John
"Tiny Dancer" and can I please sit next to Billy Crudup on the bus?

26. Pink Floyd
Most boring band ever. EVER.

27. Queen
"Under Pressure"

28. Eric Clapton
"She's Waiting"

29. Grateful Dead
Cherry Garcia (I hate the Dead)

33. The Kinks

34. Cream
I have no idea but I can tell you Ginger Baker was the drummer

35. The Police
"Every Little Thing"

36. AC/DC
"Dirt Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"

37. Radiohead
"Fake Plastic Trees"

38. The Eagles
"Best Of My Love"

39. Beastie Boys
"Hey Ladies"

40. The Stooges
I only know "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and I don't love it

41. Eminem

42. Black Sabbath
The Replacements' cover of "Iron Man" from The Shit Hits The Fans.

43. Guns N Roses
"Used To Love Her"

44. Nine Inch Nails
Michelle's answer was "Didn't want to go with a cover on this one because I really heart soooo many NIN songs, but I LOVE Trent's cover of Adam Ant's (!) "Physical". Sexiest NIN song EVER!" I have to TOTALLY agree with her. Every time this comes on my iPod, I think about sex. Laugh if you want but go listen to it and you will know exactly what I mean.

45. Roxy Music

46. Poison
"Girls Girls Girls" -- no, wait, that was Motley Crue.

47. Twisted Sister
The song that went with the video with the guy from Animal House. Actually, I hated all their songs and Dee Snider's hair too.

48. Styx
I would rather curl up into a ball and die than listen to them.

49. Peter Gabriel
"Sledge Hammer"

50. Jethro Tull
People actually like them??

51. Genesis
"Sususudio" (remember when MTV played this like every half hour?)

52. Portishead
All I know about them is they have a girl singer and come from Great Britain. I keep thinking her name is Natalie but I think I'm just getting her confused with Natalie Portman.

53. Oasis
"Champagne Supernova"

54. Bon Jovi
"Bad Medicine"

55. Pearl Jam
Can I say "Hunger Strike" by Temple of the Dog -- Eddie Vedder sang on it and I think some of Pearl Jam was involved with that record so it sort of counts.

56. Motley Crue
"Girls Girls Girls"

57. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
"Even the Losers"
"The Waiting"
"King's Road"
Did you see how old Tom looked at the Super Bowl? And, Benmont Tench had gray hair. And, who told Alicia Keys to wear those pants?

58. Coldplay
Ugh. I just do not see the appeal.

59. Fleetwood Mac
"Gold Dust Woman"

60. Cure
"Close To Me"

61. Joy Division
"Love Will Tear Us Apart" (Do I even know anything else by them?)

62. Inxs
"New Sensation"

63. My Chemical Romance
I don't know anything by them but I bet they are better than Jethro Tull.

64. Def Leppard
"Pour Some Sugar On Me"

65. Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Love Rollercoaster" (cover of The Ohio Players song)

66. Foo Fighters
"Best Of You"

67. Devo
"Whip It"

68. Eurythmics
"Here Comes The Rain Again"

69. Duran Duran
John Taylor -- I mean, "The Reflex"

70. ZZTop

71. Journey
Once upon a time, I loved Journey. Then I discovered college radio.

72. Green Day
"When I Come Around"

73. Iggy Pop
"Lust For Life"

74. Mott the Hoople
"All the Young Dudes"

I only know "Holiday In Cambodia" and it's not exactly a favorite of mine.

76. Kiss
"Rock and Roll All Night"

77. Metallica
"Enter Sandman"

I don't know any New York Dolls' songs but The Replacements did one called "Johnny's Gonna Die" about Johnny Thunders

79. Petshop Boys
"What Have I Done to Deserve This" (thanks for the reminder, Chelle!)

80. Marilyn Manson
I did like one of their songs and I had a friend put it on a mix tape for me. I cannot remember the name of it now though.

"Rock N Roll"

82. Sonic Youth
"Teenage Riot"

83. T Rex
"20th Century Boy"

Awesome survey! I'm going to have to think about it and post it later. I love, love, love music and I see many of my favorite artists on the list, so I need a little time to pare down my answers.
