The answers to the mp3 player meme
I was surprised at how many of the titles you all guessed. Well done everyone!

birdsedge is the winner, having identified the most titles, with caper_est and readthisandweep in joint second place. All the rest who identified one or two are worthy runners-up.

The ones that no one got were...

8) I declare I don't care no more, I'm burning up and out and growing bored (Greenday 'Burnout')

9) Do you remember? Do you remember? Do you remember how you were gonna stay free. (Travis 'The Distance')

10) It starts in the morning when you're lying next to me. I'm rolling, I'm rolling, I'm rolling so quickly. (Travis 'Happy')

12) Along the coast road by the headland, the early lights of winter glow. I'll pour a cup to you my darling. (Jethro Tull 'Cheerio')

13) Gweld y golau'n dawnsio trwy yr coed, teimlo'n hwyrach na deimlas i erioed. (Nathan Williams 'Hebdda Ti' ('Without You'))

18) While riding on a train goin' west, I fell asleep to take my rest. (Bob Dylan 'Bob Dylan's Dream)

19) Well you can bump and grind it is good for your mind, well you can twist and shout, let it all hang out. (T. Rex 'Children of the Revolution')

As I said when I first posted the meme, I'm not convinced about the randomness because there were three Bob Dylan tracks. Anyway, just for completeness, here is the link to the original list, now updated with all the correct answers crossed out.

It was the folky content that helped me. I didn't get any of the rocky ones at all, but I have many Steeleye Span songs burnt into my brain (including Rave On) and years of listening to folk radio programmes helped with Arthur McBride and the odd Bob Dylan. We obviously have some musical tastes in common (but not all of them).

Can't believe I missed #18 - mind you, I haven't listened to The Free Wheelin' Bob Dylan for what feels like centuries! Lol!

And no points (to me) for not getting T Rex either.

Quite pleased I didn't recognise any Travis tracks... 'Why does it always rain on me?' Because you go on a bit? Apologies to any Travis fans. I love Kate Bush so feel free to have a go back! I shall just smile ;)

This was fun. Thanks.
