Guess the titles!  
I decided to do a song meme, but I'm getting A Lot Of Songs I Can't Use. Soundtracks, B-sides to industrial singles, obscene musicals, obscure seiyuu songs, a surprising number of chants from a Buddhist sect and the Airwolf theme. I started skipping the Japanese ones after a while, because there were too many of them.

So... can anyone guess the songs from the first few lines or so?

1. blodeuedd: Metallica (cover)/Whiskey In The Jar

As I was going over the Cork and Kerry Mountains
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said "Stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya"

2. blodeuedd: Weiss/Velvet Underworld

Shinku no juutan ni nita kono yo no hana wa mina omote

3. Mayonaka ni hana wa saku deshou
Kizutsuita kokoro bokutachi no REAL

4. bemysty: Tennis no Oujisama/You Got Game?

[title] Donna SPEED no naka mo toki wa kawaranai RHYTHM wo kizande
Drive my heart! Tatoe tooku hanareteite mo minna onaji sora no shita iru kara

5. kurayamihimitsu: Sweeney Todd/Wait

Easy now, hush love hush.
Don't distress yourself, what's your rush?

6. white_cross_b: Duran Duran/The Chauffeur

Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
All looking for a new place to drive
You sit beside me so newly charming
Sweating dewdrops glisten freshing your side

7. Soshite mata ore wa tabidachi
Nokosareta no wa omoide tachi
I remember kimi ga nokoshita message like this.
"If you look back, I won't forgive you."

8. bemysty: Konjiki no Gashbell/Chichi wo Moge!

Chi-chi-chi-chi oppai boin boin
Chi-chi-chi-chi oppai boin boin
Moge moge moge

9. crabsushi Silent/Room of Angel

You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me
the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you

10. giving_ground: Covenant / Like Tears In Rain

Go to the Empire State and watch the city lights
Hear the noise of millions struggle in the sprawl
Stare into the sky, we're few and far between
Black eyes full of stars, wide with memories

Agh... summer vacation. I had a great time with kurayamihimitsu yesterday, but I've done NOTHING today bar open the Word doc that has my attempt at a novel in it... I'm way too close now to judge it objectively, but I think it sucks.

I have a headache too.

Well, 10 is by Covenant. *thinks* Like Tears In Rain?

Yep! Well done. :)
我が愛しき修羅: Gundam 00 > The GARest of them allbemysty on 7th August 2008 12:58 (UTC)
4. is Tenipuri (You got game, I think?), 8. is Chichi o moge
Williamgenkischuldich on 7th August 2008 13:58 (UTC)
Right for both of them. I knew my flist wouldn't fail me on the second one. It's a karaoke classic.

#6 is "The Chauffeur" by Duran Duran! LUFF! \o/
Williamgenkischuldich on 7th August 2008 14:00 (UTC)
Yep! That's right!

#1 - The Clancy Brothers (or Irish Rovers?), but I don't know the title!

#2 - Velvet Underworld (Weiss Kreuz opening), sung by the Weiss Kreuz boys, I guess?
Williamgenkischuldich on 7th August 2008 14:05 (UTC)
First one... close. It's a cover version, one of many. In this case, Metallica's version.

Yup on the second! I'm concerned it took the fourth person to reply to get it. :P
Floor No Battleblodeuedd on 7th August 2008 15:08 (UTC)
Metallica? O.O I'd have to ask my brother about that one, then. :)

#9 is "Room of Angel", from Silent Hill. o.o! Anddddd it's the only one I recognize. XD
Williamgenkischuldich on 7th August 2008 14:48 (UTC)
...of the ones left, I presume? #2 was obvious, I thought...
Starriecrabsushi on 7th August 2008 14:54 (UTC)
I didn't recognize any of the others. I don't sing any of the WK songs save one, I just listen to them as background noise, so the only one I'd recognize would be Stone Roses... and that's been so long that it would need to be a good day. XD

#5 - Sweeney Todd, Wait

Williamgenkischuldich on 7th August 2008 16:27 (UTC)

We shall do so. I can't in the next few days, but maybe next week?
