    First song you think of

    Ok, here are some bands and artists. Name the first song you think of.
    (Don’t look at the other posts!)

    Beatles
    Stones
    Queen
    Abba
    U2
    Genesis

    Frank Sinatra
    Elvis Presley
    David Bowie
    Prince
    Michael Jackson

    I know these are old ones, but I suspect they resonate more with you than the icons of today...

                I can't answer the others because I don't think about them.
                Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

                  I can't answer the others because I don't think about them.
                  I had no problem with immediate answers until I got to Madonna . . . . then I had to think for a while to dredge up a song she did. I finally remembered Vogue because of the hand poses from the music video.

                  David Bowie came the fastest, as I'd just listened to a trio of songs from Ziggy Stardust.

                      I couldn't name a U2 song and then when I looked at the other posts, I recognised some of them.

                        But it does show you do recognize way overrated bsnds I guess. Even if their songs are hard to escape.

                            Somebody else's turn to throw out ten bands or artists and the song that first come to mind?
                            See what happens?
                            Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.

                              Beatles - Eleanor Rigby
                              Stones - Satisfaction*
                              Queen - Killer Queen
                              Abba - Take a Chance on Me
                              U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday
                              Genesis - Squonk

                              Frank Sinatra - My Way*
                              Elvis Presley - All shook up
                              David Bowie - Starman
                              Prince - Purple Rain*
                              Michael Jackson - Thriller
                              Madonna - Like a Virgin

                              * I cheated for these three. Nothing came to mind quickly, so I searched for songs. I picked the ones I thought I would most probably have thought of first, if I had kept thinking.

                              Some of these songs I like, others rather less so.
