Guess the Melody

Post by Xarthok » Mon Mar 31, 2008 8:26

I made this for another forum but thought why not post it here too ;) The rules are simple and obvious: download the pack of short song samples and try to recognize them. For guessing the artist and song title right you get 1 point, or 0.5 points if you get only 1 of them right. If after 3 days there are any songs not guessed yet, I'll give hints.

Round 1:
Most of it is rock music, mostly extremely easy even with just 1-4 second samples.
DOWNLOAD / Mirror

Guessed so far:

1. The Who - Baba O'Riley (Allstories 1p)
2. Tool (Djaser 0.5p) - Schism (Calvero 0.5p)
3. Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing (Commander Spleen 1p)
4. System of a Down - Sugar (Djaser 1p)

16.

Arg. So many of these I recognise but can't put names to. There are also a few I don't know, but would like to hear, as they sound brilliant. Well, here goes...

03 Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
07 Queen - Under Pressure
09 I want to know what this is!
12 B-52's - Rock Lobster
13 Red Hot Chilli Peppers - City of Angels (that took me a while)
14 This really answers itself (AC/DC - Thunderstruck)
17 I want to know what this one is, too.
19 Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars
20 Sounds familiar, but I can't place it. Tell meeee!
21 The Smiths - How Soon Is Now (I hadn't heard that version until now)
23 Something from Guitar Hero III (I've only ever played it drunk, so I'm going through the list [edit: screw that plan...])
24 Guns N' Roses - Welcome to the Jungle
25 Toto - Africa
26 Very, very familiar... but I can't remember how it goes past the second chord at the end.
27 Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters Theme
28 Another I want to know.
29 Reminds me of Jill of the Jungle, or Doom... can't place it as a commercial song though
31 Another I recognise from GH3, but have no idea who it is
32 Garg, an obvious one, but I can bring the vaguest flavour of the lyrics to mind
37 Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best Shot
38 Already scored by KR, but Survivor - Eye of the Tiger
39 Nightwish, but it's been too long since I've listened to them, so no song name here
40 Rolling Stones?
41-42 No idea, but I like 'em.
44 Blur - Woo Hoo
47 Grr, another obvious one I can't name.
50 An obvious one I can name! Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

Whew, that was amusing...

13: it may also be All Saints - Under the Bridge
30: The Clash - Should I Stay or Should I Go
32: Lenny Kravitz - Are You Gonna Go My Way

Damn!! A lot of the other songs are so familiar, yet I can't tell their exact names.

Few guesses:

48: Manowar?
47: Creedence?
45: Could be Behemoth or Kamelot
41: Metallica or Coverdale Page?
33: This must be Led Zeppelin
18: R.E.M.
05: Atari Teenage Riot?

Number 8 is something by My Bloody Valentine, I have the album it's on but it hasn't been ripped to this computer, but I know it's by them.

Number 17 sounds familiar, but I can't place it... Dream Theater maybe? I'm not by any means sure though...
