Chronological Ordering Game

Recommended Posts

This game is pretty much exactly the same as the memory game in the Music Discussion thread. Someone posts a group of popular songs that were released in different years, and people have to guess when the songs were released in chronological order.

I'll start with one song from each year of a decade of music pretty much everyone here loves - the 70s. :)

25 or 6 to 4 - Chicago

American Pie - Don McLean

Breakfast in America - Supertramp

Dreadlock Holiday - 10cc

Fame - David Bowie

(Bang A Gong) Get It On - T. Rex

Hotel California - The Eagles

Live and Let Die - Paul McCartney and Wings

Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry

You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet - Bachman-Turner Overdrive

The release years are based on the American release dates given in Wikipedia. I will release the answers whenever I feel like it, but it should be in about 3 days or so. :grin:

Well dammit Chris, I was there! Maybe I had one too many brownies, but that's the way I remember it! This is going to drive me crazy. :stars: There's only 2 I would even want to switch, and watch they'd be the wrong 2.

So these lyrics don't ring a bell? Maybe not, it wasn't such a big hit in the US, but it was a #1 in the UK and is popular here in Australia:

I was walkin' down the street

Concentratin' on truckin' right

I heard a dark voice beside of me

And I looked round in a state of fright

I saw four faces one mad

A brother from the gutter

They looked me up and down a bit

And turned to each other

I say

I don't like cricket oh no

I love it

I don't like cricket oh no

I love it

Don't you walk thru my words

You got to show some respect

Don't you walk thru my words

'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

Well he looked down at my silver chain

He said I'll give you one dollar

I said you've got to be jokin' man

It was a present from me Mother

He said I like it I want it

I'll take it off your hands

And you'll be sorry you crossed me

You'd better understand that you're alone

A long way from home

And I say

I don't like reggae no no

I love it

I don't like reggae oh no

I love it

Don't you cramp me style

Don't you queer on me pitch

Don't you walk thru my words

'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

I hurried back to the swimming pool

Sinkin' pina coladas

I heard a dark voice beside me say

Would you like something harder

She said I've got it you want it

My harvest is the best

And if you try it you'll like it

And wallow in a Dreadlock Holiday

And I say

Don't like Jamaica oh no

I love her

Don't like Jamaica oh no

I love her oh yea

Don't you walk thru her words

You got to show some respect

Don't you walk thru her words

'Cause you ain't heard her out yet

I don't like cricket

I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)

I don't like reggae

I love it (Dreadlock Holiday)

Don't like Jamaica

I love her (Dreadlock Holiday)

79 was the year I graduated, and I'm pretty sure Breaksfast in America came out then, but then again I could be wrong on that...lol...Hotel California I thought was 76....I could rearrange mine, but I'd probably make it worse.

There were three songs that you had right the first time that you got wrong this time. Feel free to keep on trying, or give up. Either way is fine with me. :)
