Welcome to Song Challenge
Series 1 – Game 3#

5 Questions to be answered with just 5 Song/Music Titles – no need to explain your answers/reasons for selection!

Each new game’s questions will be different to the next game.

You can opt to answer below in the comments section with links to the tracks should you wish or equally as much create your own post that’s entirely down to you – please do ensure to include a ping back to the actual game’s post so l don’t miss out on any of your responses.

I will create a Musical Lineup List every week prior to the next game of the best tracks for the previous game’s questions!
Game 3/This Week’s Questions
A song that you enjoy that isn’t in your own language?
A great workout/exdercise/activity song?
A song that is almost hypnotic to listen to?
A song about animals?
A really unusual song you love that isn’t well known by others?
To create a pingback, simply create a link (i.e. clickable text) to another WordPress blog post from within a blog post or a page on your own site. If that post has pingbacks enabled, the blog owner will see a pingback appear in their comments section.

My thanks to the following for their choices …

Grace of Just Tawkin’Angie of King Ben’s Grandma
Eugenia of Eugi’s Causerie IMelanie of Sparks from a combustible mind
Gary of Bereaved Single Dad
LOU CHRISTIE – BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZONFoo Fighters – Learn To Fly
The Who – Behind Blue Eyes Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun
Simple Minds – Don’t YouLed Zeppelin – Kashmir (Remaster)
Napoleon XIV They’re Coming To Take Me Away Ha-Haaa!Led Zeppelin – Ramble On

Led Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven
Bob Seger – Roll Me Away Neil Diamond – Longfellow Serenade
Beach Boys “Little Deuce Coupe” Jan and Dean Live – Little Old Lady from Pasadena
Completely ‘Left Field’ song from Gary and required a lot of guess work to try and choose a song from this response …. “Here’s a left field one. It was a few years after it had come out but as a teenager I loved the David Soul song.”

Not knowing how old Gary is but working on the premise that he is younger than my 58 years, therefore his teenager years 13 – 17 would make him a few years my juinor and so l will age him at the 48-52 mark [sorry mate if you are younger] and therefore his teenager years were in the mid to later 70’s maybe early 80’s – a wild guess therefore looking at David Soul songs of the time that were popular singles and radio hits – l think it might be this …. however if l am wrong Gary – let me know.
David Soul – Don’t Give Up On Us

  2. I was going to post ‘an unusual song most people never heard of” and then I realized – it would be so inappropriate in this day and age, but it was hilarious in 1983…

      1. Oh my dear it is NOT a ‘nudge, nudge, wink, wink” song. I didn’t realize how objectionable it would be perceived as until I played the video – no, no – I would never post that song/video in public – Never! If you want one of ‘those’ songs there is always Jimmy Buffett – https://youtu.be/LL9O0B0gzZE. Would you believe, when my husband had his DJ business, that was one of the most requested songs at weddings???

  3. A song that you enjoy that isn’t in your own language?
