Musical ABCs
A really simple game for on a forum that involves music and possibly you-tube.


Follow the Alphabet, no skipping letters.
Try to not use the same song or artist for the same letter twice in a row. (Certain letters will be harder than others)

Use either a song title or a band or artist name starting with the letter that your post is for.

When you get to Z, the next poster of course should start things with A again.

Feel free to include a link to a video if you know of one that is good for that song - it isn't a requirement but think of it as a nice way to promote a favorite artist who might not be well known.

Let at least one person post after you do unless the thread has gone dormant for over 2 days.

**Note, The and A may be treated as 'null' words at the beginning of a song title in order to get a working song or band name.


Lets get things rolling with:


Annwyn, Beneath the Waves by Faith & the Muse - live at Dragon*con 2009

Kaidah 02-22-2011 09:04 PM

Excellent Canadian rock. Too bad they broke up. :cry:

"E" is for "Eminem"! :D

FeralPuppet 02-23-2011 10:49 AM

Video Unbreakable by Fire Flight

Bullbound 02-23-2011 12:11 PM

Nemorka 02-23-2011 04:55 PM

Harbor by Vienna Teng

(bb, the gummy bear song is one of my favorites for making people laugh against their will)

FeralPuppet 02-23-2011 10:16 PM

I is for ... I'm a Marionette by ABBA

Bullbound 02-23-2011 10:31 PM

J is for Justin Bieber whom is plastered everywhere right now.

FeralPuppet 02-23-2011 11:00 PM

K is for Kim Wilde!

Kim Wilde's Born to Be Wild

Nemorka 02-23-2011 11:23 PM

Losing by Takida

Kaidah 02-24-2011 07:34 AM


Not normally my style, but he's from Ottawa (Belly is too, btw). Gotta give some love to hometown boys.

I actually met both of them once, back when they were still shopping around a demo called "Spitfire" (which got as much radio play as anything else they've done since, but was never released as a single :wall:). They came in to a station I was working on and we talked a bit. Nice guys, and very business savvy. I've been a fan of both of them ever since.

Nemorka 02-25-2011 11:15 AM

Nightwish - Nemo

Kaidah 02-25-2011 11:36 AM

Nice, Nemorka. Very Evanescence sounding. Is it just me, or does the lead singer look like Olivia Wilde?
Okay, I'm going way back to 1993 on this one:

Organized Rhyme

Once again proving that:
- Ottawa rocks more than people realize. :D
- Tom Green is awesome!
- Everything is better with a horn section.

And yes, that is a very young Tom Green. Believe it or not, this was a pretty big hit at the time. MuchMusic is our version of MTV and there was only one channel at the time, so this was broadcast nationally.

FeralPuppet 02-25-2011 07:53 PM

P is for ... Paperweight by Josh Radin (Dear John)

Nemorka 02-25-2011 09:08 PM

Q is for Quiet Riot - Come on feel the noise

Bullbound 02-25-2011 10:16 PM

R is for Robot by Miley Cyrus. Dang that song was popular last year :s

Kaidah 02-25-2011 10:17 PM

Damn, and I thought I had reached way back.

Let's angry this up a bit for 'R' with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!

I almost went with Killing in the Name (after all, who can resist a song where the last minute is nothing but "F*** you, I won't do what you tell me" screamed over and over?), but Bulls on Parade is my absolute favorite RATM song.

Edit: Crap! Bullbound beat me to it.

FeralPuppet 02-25-2011 10:43 PM

S is for ... Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!! :D

Nemorka 02-27-2011 08:13 AM

Wow, I get to post my 'theme' song in the first round of this. *picks jaw up off the floor*

Sangaril 02-27-2011 10:19 AM

U is for .... Uriah Heep Hows that for old school people

Kaidah 02-27-2011 06:33 PM

This is what Axel missed out on by being a jackass.

Sangaril 02-27-2011 08:08 PM

Kaidah 02-28-2011 11:29 AM

For 'Z', here's another great tune by a good ol' Canadian boy.

Zombie Delight by Buck 65.

The official video will be released closer to the album's release on August 10th.

Kaidah 03-02-2011 10:48 AM

Nemorka, I'm pretty sure that's "You Can't Touch This". ;)

Anyway, on to D: Dethklok. The most successful death metal band in the world!

FeralPuppet 03-02-2011 12:34 PM

E is for ... Eye of the Tiger by Survivor

Sangaril 03-02-2011 04:17 PM

F is for Flotsam and Jetsum. A relative local band but was good enough to give their bassist to Metallica

Bullbound 03-02-2011 05:14 PM

We need another C to replace the flunk :(

*taps foot while waiting for Nemorka*

As for G, how about Green Day, with songs such as Good Riddance?
