So, Sis, how well do you know your brother's musical tastes?

To which of my three sisters am I directing the question?

Each of them.

Notice I didn't say "all of them." Because that would imply it's okay to collaborate. It's not.

Each of you must answer the question independently. And you might get help from the others by reading their comments. But no collaboration, sis. Or sisses.

So, to the Big Sister (who's 5'4''), the Little Sister (who's 6'0''), and the Mean Sister (who's 5'6''), I ask the question: How well do you know your brother's musical tastes.

Here's how we'll find out.

I'm listing 10 songs. Seven of them are on iTunes. Seven of them are on my iPod. The three that are not on iTunes may or may not be the ones not on my iPod.

You don't have to try to figure out which songs are or aren't on iTunes. But it may help if you searched iTunes and found that out. Then, again, it may not help. Heh.

So, you ready? Good.

Here are the 10 songs.
  • Colors -- Ice T

  • Friends in Low Places -- Garth Brooks

  • Funk #49 -- James Gang

  • Gangsta's Paradise -- Coolio

  • Hello, Goodbye -- The Beatles

  • I Feel Fine -- The Beatles

  • In The Mood -- Glenn Miller

  • King of the Road -- Roger Mlller

  • Life In The Fast Lane -- Eagles

  • Ridin' -- Chamillionaire


So, which 7 do I have on my iPod? Or which 3 do I not have on my iPod?

Keep in mind, just because I don't have it doesn't mean I won't get it. But, at this time, at least one of the songs I don't have, I don't plan to get. At least one of the songs I don't have, I do plan to get.

All this means you need to know, not only what songs I would put on my iPod to listen to, but what songs might I get before others, since at least one I don't have, I plan to get.

Yes, sis, it's complicated. Did you expect any less?

So, sis. Just how well do you know your brother's musical tastes?

  1. Ahmish Paradise by Wierd Al is actually superior to the original, cited above. My 2 cents.

  2. I agree. And Amish Paradise IS on my iPod!

  3. Everyone knows The Beatles are missing from iTunes, so you have to go elsewhere for them. Unfortuneatly, they still have no digital distribution. Also, not sure if anything on there will help you with wordpress, but I recently discovered pimpmysafari.com and it's got some good add-ons for it.

  4. Ah, but just because iTunes doesn't have them ... doesn't mean that my iPod is missing them. I do have some Beatles on my iPod. Just not sure if my sisters can figure out which songs.

    Oh, and thanks for the tip on PimpMySafari.com. It looks like some good add-ons for sure. I don't see anything that fixes the issue with WordPress, but I was so caught up in the other stuff they had, it took me a minute to realize that.

  5. Hmmmm......

    Here are my guesses:

    King of the Road ... Roger Mlller
    Life In The Fast Lane ... Eagles
    Hello, Goodbye ... The Beatles
    I Feel Fine ... The Beatles
    Funk #49 ... James Gang
    In The Mood ... Glenn Miller
    Gangsta's Paradise ... Coolio

  6. Close. You got more than 4 and less than 7 correct.

  7. You could have Coolio just for fun to compare to Weird Al.
    You could have James Gang because of Joe Walsh.
    You could have Ice-T because he's on Law and Order...

    OK, I am replacing Glenn Miller with Garth Brooks.
    Why? Because the Wife insisted..

    Friends in Low Places ... Garth Brooks
    Funk #49 ... James Gang
    Gangsta's Paradise ... Coolio

    Hello, Goodbye ... The Beatles
    I Feel Fine ... The Beatles
    King of the Road ... Roger Mlller
    Life In The Fast Lane ... Eagles

  8. You got more than 4 and less than 7 correct.

    And good for you for attempting this. Your two younger sisters haven't even dared!

    It is not that I have not dared, it is that work requires more than the hours I have in the day...in fact, I am still at work, but it is donated time at this point!! :)

    Let's see...my votes are

    Friends in Low Places ... Garth Brooks
    Funk #49 ... James Gang
    Hello, Goodbye ... The Beatles
    In The Mood ... Glenn Miller
    King of the Road ... Roger Mlller
    Life In The Fast Lane ... Eagles
    Ridin' ... Chamillionaire

    I am not sure about Funk #49...never heard of it, but since the Eagles were on there I thought I'd leave it. Ridin' is just too funny...especially since Weird Al did White and Nerdy.

    How did I do?

  10. You got more than 4 and less than 7 correct.

    Oh, and you HAVE heard Funk #49. You probably just don't know the name of the song ... but I'd wager you know the song.

    What...no hints? Come on, give a gal a break. Did I have more than Big Sister (who is 5'4")?

  12. The Mean Sister (who is 5'6")October 3, 2007 at 12:51 PM

    Ok, let's try round 2. Here are my new votes...

    Friends in Low Places ... Garth Brooks
    Funk #49 ... James Gang
    Hello, Goodbye ... The Beatles
    I Feel Fine ... The Beatles
    In The Mood ... Glenn Miller
    King of the Road ... Roger Mlller
    Life In The Fast Lane ... Eagles

    Any better?

  13. You got more than 4 and less than 7 correct.

  14. Well, heck, those that Mean did were my next guesses. That means that you do have at least one out of Ice-T, Chamillionare, or Coolio.
    Hmmm....
    I'll have to ponder on this a lot more.

  15. Well, I was just getting ready to submit my next guess. Again, I would have had more than four and less than seven.
    I thought for sure you'd have the Eagles.
    Why do you have Gangsta's Paradise and Ridin'? And why do you not plan to get Colors?
    And I do recognize Funk #49, but because it's from some advertisement...not from the song being played on air. Joe Walsh is such fun to watch perform..whether on video or live.

    I have been busy. Here are my guesses:

    Funk #49 ... James Gang
    Gangsta's Paradise ... Coolio
    Hello, Goodbye ... The Beatles
    I Feel Fine ... The Beatles
    In The Mood ... Glenn Miller
    King of the Road ... Roger Mlller
    Ridin' ... Chamillionaire

    Did I win?????

    No, I never would have got them right.
