I'm bored and came up with a game. I love music and this might or may not work. We'll see.


Rules



0. Guess the song in the post above*
1. Think of a song.
2. Post the year of its release and the genre (as close as possible).
3. Then, use the refrain** - or - if the song does not have a refrain, the first 4 lines of the song.
4. Only post the first letter of each song.


Further rules:
- Has to be a song considered a "classic" or at least rather well known.
- No songs in foreign language that were not popular in UK or US
- The song should have been a #1 - #3 hit in any single charts
- Please indicate, if it's not the main single charts, mainstream single charts or respective genre single charts, WHAT country the song was famous in.
- Does NOT have to be a chart success, but then the song should be considered well-known and should be among the top hits / breakthrough hits of the respective artist.

*Min. 5 days for people to guess, if nobody gets it, you can skip.
**Has to have at least 4 lines of refrain.




I start with an example and then give you the first real song.

Easiest of them all to demonstrate

1987 - Dance Pop

N G R A A D Y
N G M Y C N G S G
N G T A L A H Y

Okay.

So here's the first one for you.

1984 - Pop-Ballad

I N G D A
G F H G N R
T I E T P
I K Y N A F

Good Luck :)

Wow sheit, this is hard. Gonna have to search through my 10,000 song library again.

Also, "number one song". Number one where? UK? USA? Both?

I'd say we should restrict it to UK + USA but if theres a No 1 Song in some other country and came in Top 5 in US and UK and is considered well known, I'd let that one count as well.

Come on guys, get to the Wiki and find the damn song. Use your common sense.

(If you happen to check the history, you'll see an Admin called "Loadingue" who made a lot of edits, that's totally unrelated to my own person)

Or someone choose a new song, I don't mind.

Trial and Error and being cultured enought to actually know very good music.


@Dede: Wow, this one IS annoyingly hard though. Or I'm just dumb. The W J W line should be obvious but its not.


Oh and also refer to wiki regarding release of the song (either single or album whatever was first) and genre.

The Pop + Live Aid Combination worries me. There werent THAT many pop artists at live aid. And it's neither Queen nor Madonna nor Duran Duran as far as I can tell

ERr... so I may have realised that the W J W should be with the last line too, I wasn't really watching what I was doing. :P

But it is one of those bands you named keith.
