Sunny Day, they defined the twee sound for me – lofi pop.
-Big Dolly Mixture fan, this may not be their best song but it’s the most twee sounding.
-Heavenly (not the French power metal band), Hearts & Crosses – a fucked up song about date rape, listen to the lyrics and that upbeat keyboard, an awful contrast.

Ott 11 2006, 7:08 di CaraliI'm resposting this since it somehow got deleted before. I put the answers up for the songs that were already guessed. There is also still some songs to be guessed in Pt. 1 & Pt. 2
Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
1. Could you see the aisles of women? King of the Mountain
2. We were at a party, his ear lobe fell in the deep Rock Lobster
3. It's So Easy To Fall In Love It's So Easy
4. She's a good girl, loves her mama Free Fallin'

Feb 13 2006, 3:40 di scarebearI wrote the description for Dusty Springfield. It's nothing great, but I thought I would write something since there wasn't anything there yet. It's way too long, so most likely and hopefully someone will shorten it.
Here's the final edit from me (unshortened):
Dusty Springfield was born April 16, 1939, in West Hampstead, London as Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien. She was a musical icon, whose music spanned genres and whose influence spanned generations and across oceans. Her father was an avid fan of classical and jazz, and he would beat out rhythms on the back of her hand, asking the young girl to guess which piece of music that was. She was brought up listening to a wide variety of music. Her mother would bring her to the movies at any opportunity. This was a foundation for an appreciation for the arts.
Dusty herself was a big fan of Peggy Lee. When she was asked at age ten what she wanted to be, she said "I want to be a blues singer!"
