Hello,

Here's a little game we could make, totally coin non-related.

Rules are simple :
You have to find a song you like whose title includes the word the post above you chose. If you find one, write the title (and the band or artist), post a youtube link if you can and choose a new word for the following person!

The world would preferably be in english. It may be an adjective, a noun or a verb. It can be a weird, complicated, word, as long as there exist songs with that word in their titles.

Note : Synonyms don't count

Note : The word should be given in english. Nonetheless the word in the song name can be this very word but translated in another langage.

Any kind of music is welcome!

I hope it's understandable enough, I thought it was a funny way to share our favourite songs while playing a little game.


I'll begin with an easy word : Love

​Well, they are not supposed to, but I didn't say it that's true. Moreover you have to choose a word for the person after you, if you don't, the game can't keep going. (8

​I don't. (8

I do not have much knowledge in music before 1940... But it definetely has its charm. I should dig a bit this era.

I got a few with the word Sun. Here's one :
Wardruna - Solringen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rEeEKYbVX8

@ngdawa : I think it's nice to get songs in other languages, so that people can make discover songs from their countries also. Let's say that the word should be given in english, but the song name may have that word in another language, like Indiana_Pipps did and I just did.

Next word, let's stay in the sky : star

Yeah, I like a wide variety of music- just to make it clear I'm not one of those people who goes around ranting about how modern pop culture is destroying society. ``- I'm genuinely interested in music from that period, from a historian's perspective, and it's also interesting that many of the old songs I enjoy were themselves derided in the same fashion by similarly short-sighted conservatives when they were first released.

Here's one about stars from my parents' vinyl collection, a bit more modern:

Is it possible to inflect the word? Let's say the word is Run. Can I then choose a song with the word Ran or Running?
Same with plural, like Dog --> Dogs, etc?

Well, it has now been 24 hours, and since it seems like no one knows a single song with the word "unknown" in the title, so I guess I won! :8D

This one might be stretching it a little, but since this DE-EN dictionary says that schoen can be translated as great, here it is; an absolute classic: :8D

Bei mir bist du Schön (1932):

(Max Raabe is the BEST singer; he can imitate just about every singing style that debuted in the 20th century, but I like him singing interwar-era music the best! He also bandleads, and his Palast Orchestra does a wicked Charleston too.)
