Has an audio Name Those Tunes Medley ever been done before?
Why?: I used to make short medleys late Sunday nights for my ex and old habits die hard. Seeing that the ex would prefer to see me dead, I figured I’d try one here instead and see how it goes.
The Rules?: Easy. Click the ‘SDMB Name Those Tunes Cryptic Medley’ link below. There’ll be a short (virus free) .wma medley that will play from my Yahoo briefcase on your computer’s default media player. Name all the tracks and you win.
The ‘Cryptic’ Part: The first letter of each track (in the order they’re played) spells the theme of the puzzle.
Prizes?: Hmmmm, let’s see. I’m kinda drawing a black here - I’ll tell you what: The 1st person name all the track titles (in order) wins a drink of their choice at NYC Dopefest in October. (Johnny Walker Blue and certain top-shelf cognacs are exempted).
I Don’t Drink / I Won’t Be in NYC This October: Fret not. Just designate the name of an attending doper you’d like to pinch-drink for you - and the cocktail is theirs. If you name all the tunes and select a tap beer drinking person to drink for you, you’ll have my wallet’s gratitude.
What If I Only Know Some Answers?: If you only know some track titles, feel free to post them - you’ll be helping out people who take a crack at naming all the tracks in the medley after you. If you’re the non-quitter type, plug in the 1st letter of the one’s you know & the cryptic clue will at least give you the 1st letter of the one’s you don’t.
This Medley: .WMA File. 23 Tracks. 1 Minute 35 seconds long. 1.135 Mb. All songs have something in common, hence the cryptic answer.
Difficulty Level: Not easy – but not impossible. Maybe a difficulty level of 8 out of 10 – But nothing all that obscure. If no one can guess the tunes and solve the cryptic phrase, maybe I’ll throw up some clues (maybe all the artists) in a spoiler box. So give it a whirl…Here ya go:
