Remember that image where you had to guess the band names? Well, this time the image is a movie, and the band names are song titles. [quicktime]

So we're looking for song titles in the movie? Because I'm confused. The original link is straightforward, but I was having difficulty sorting through the scenes in the movie and wasn't quite sure what I was looking for...

It's Python, right?

Yes, we're looking for song titles.

Purple Rain; Magic Carpet Ride; Another Brick in the Wall; Dancing Queen; Like A Rolling Stone; Hotel California; Piano Man; Blue Suede Shoes; Video Killed the Radio Star (heh). That's all I got so far.

I Shot The Sheriff; Tears in Heaven(?); Message in a Bottle.

What about those soliders? I bet I'm gonna feel really stupid when I hear what that is...
posted by Gator at 2:07 PM on March 14, 2006


I'm finding all the same ones as Gator (on TWO previews), plus "We are the champions"
It's too fast!

Gator, if you don't wanna know, don't click or hover over the link that is the full stop at the end of this sentence.

The soldiers are a "Seven Nation Army"!
posted by easternblot at 2:21 PM on March 14, 2006


I have never, ever heard of that song, so I don't feel bad (though I suspect jonmc will want to thrash me now).

Any chance that blinged-out character on the dock also represents It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp?

Televison killed the radio star towards the end.

Kinda like Catchphrase! say what you see! its good but its not right

And 'Surfin Bird', by The Trashmen.

Kingfisher? Gotta be the first song in the clip...
posted by NailsTheCat at 3:00 PM on March 14, 2006


whats the actual music playing over the video?
posted by lemonfridge at 3:01 PM on March 14, 2006


Oh. And I had to look it up but "5.15" by The Who (on Big Ben's clock face). And it seems Bowie has a song called "5.15 The Angels Have Gone" and Knopfler has a "5.15am". So there you go.

that was my question, lemonfridge.

Anyone got anything better than "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" for when the screen fills with smoke?

oh and by "blablabla" I didn't mean to summon mefioso blablabla... I was just fresh out of "etcetc" and couldn't find my "& so on".

Shake Your Booty
posted by vagabond at 3:52 PM on March 14, 2006


I'm not entirely convinced myself, but one of the burglars does this weird shimmy on the dancefloor (before he goes off-screen) that makes me think he could be a "smooth criminal"...?
posted by easternblot at 4:10 PM on March 14, 2006


...oooh! Good one!
posted by dabitch at 4:15 PM on March 14, 2006


Also: "Rose Garden" (brick in wall scene), "Lily" (final scene). There might also be an "Iris" in there somewhere.

And "FREEBIRD"!!! (the cage is opened)
posted by easternblot at 4:17 PM on March 14, 2006


"Paint It Black"... the very last thing.
posted by kimdog at 4:20 PM on March 14, 2006


I keep thinging "I am the eggman", but the track is "I am the Walrus"

Any other ideas for the egg thing?
posted by lemonfridge at 4:34 PM on March 14, 2006


Blue Suede Shoes.

I Am the Egg Man?

Parachute by Guster?

Ships by Ian Hunter?

Pink Roses by Glassjaw?

Rodeo Clowns by Jack Johnson? Or G. Love?

Blood on the Dance Floor by Michael Jackson?

Murder on the Dancefloor also works
posted by vagabond at 6:27 AM on March 15, 2006


I would think that it's more probably "Pink Moon" by Nick Drake at the end there, not "Red Moon".
