Fun with music

Tails came up so I put this here instead of MPSIMS, but it could go either way.

Type in your lyrics here and listen to the music. The results are…different.

I love that thing. Try (without a few characters at the end) – it seems to load a bit faster.

Last time I was there, they were missing a lot of words, but it seems to have improved a bit.

I wonder how many words we can identify the source of. Here’s a start:

“We” comes from “We Will Rock You” by Queen
“They” sounds like Tears for Fears, but I don’t know what song.
“My” comes from “My Girl” by The Temptations as does “so” (“I’ve got so much honey…”)
“But” is from the end of “Summer Lovin’” from Grease (“But oh, those summer nights.”)
“Empty” and “without” are from that Eminem song where he sings “It feels so empty without me.”

“Hello” is from the song of the same name - Lionel Richie

“Heaven” sounds like it’s from Cheek to Cheek - Fred Astaire

“I” is from Wicked Games by Chris Isaak

“need” is from Let’s Stay Together by Marvin Gaye

“You” is from “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC.
“Me” is from “Red Red Wine” by UB40.
I think “else” is Buddy Holly, “gone” is Neil Young and “it isn’t” is R.E.M., but I’m not sure about which songs they’re from.

I know I know where “please” comes from, but I can’t put my finger on it.

“Don’t” is from “Don’t You Want Me, Baby” by The Human League.
“Damn” is from “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” by Sophie B. Hawkins.
“Girls” is from “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.
“Words” is from “More Than Words” by Extreme.
“Hand” is from “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles.
“My” is from “I Only Have Eyes For You” by The Flamingos.
“World” is from “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.
“No” is from “No Scrubs” by TLC.
“Feeling” is from “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye.
“Sun” is from “The Joker” by Steve Miller.

“And” and “wanted” both sound familiar, but I can’t place them.

“Yellow” is from “Mellow Yellow” by Donovan.
“Nothing” is from “Nothing Compares to You” by Sinead O’Connor.
“Confusion” comes from “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix.
“Own” comes from “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode.
“Soul” is from “Soul Man” by Sam and Dave.
“Darling” is from “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes.
“Morning” is from “Power of Love” by Celine Dion.
“Found” is from “Angie Baby” by Helen Reddy.
“Kind” is from “Need You Tonight” by INXS.
“One” is from “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson.

“Happy” is from Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz.

“Much” is from ZZ Top’s “Tush”

“Love” is from the break in Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”

Warning to anyone that can’t get it to work – I get only a blank screen from either of those links. No data is sent. Using IE6, no error message. Experimentation shows that my HOSTS file, which is designed to trap commercial popups and other baddies, is stopping this app from running. Disabling the HOSTS file makes it work.

“by” is from “Walk on By,” Warwick


Typing in the lyric, “walk on by” doesn’t give the song “Walk On By,” except for the “by”!

“In” - “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” - Elvis
“Stop” - “For What It’s Worth” - Buffalo Springfield
“Dollars” - “Mercedes Benz” (I think) - Janis Joplin
“Any” - “I Would Do Anthing Thing for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” - Meatloaf
“Greatest” - “Today (acoustic version)” - Smashing Pumpkins
“Give” - “With or Without You” - U2
“Rest” - “She Drives Me Crazy” - Fine Young Cannibals
“Life” - “Bittersweet Symphone” - The Verve
“Unbelievable” - (what else?) “Unbelievable” - EMF
“What” - “With a Little Help From My Friends” - Joe Cocker
“November” - “November Rain” - Guns ‘n’ Roses

That’s because they only have one copy of each word, and they pulled the words “walk” and “on” from other songs. They might have even done that on purpose so that you wouldn’t end up with an exact copy of the actual song.

Well, of course. :rolleyes: I still thought it interesting.

Perhaps I’m easily amused.

“Hungry” is from Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran
“Baby” is from Love to Love You Baby by Donna Summer
“Out” is from Where the Streets Have No Name by U2

“Eight” may well be The Beatles Eight Days a Week but don’t quote me on that
“Soon” is Frank Sinatra but I don’t know what song

“Time” is from “Paradise City” by Guns & Roses
“Hard” is from “Mmm mm mm mm”(?) (a song spoofed by Weird Al)

few more, then I’m done:

“Near” is from “Whenever, Wherever” by Shakira
“Face” is from “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees (I’m guessing, anyway. All I know is it’s not Neil Diamond)
“Radio” is from “Video Killed the Radio Star”
“From” sounds like it’s from “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate

“Rest” is from “She Drives Me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals.
“Life” is from “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve.
“Let’s” is from “One Love” by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
“Give” is from “With or Without You” by U2.
“Enough” is from “Karma Police” by Radiohead.
“Walls” is from “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2.

I think “if” is from “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” “Feel” sounds like Madonna. “Six” is from something by Jimi Hendrix.
