Thanks, Jon.

I'm tempted to play, but I'll leave it up to others. (Truth is-- my brain is shot and I only recognize about 25% of these.)

But what I really wanna know is-- where's "Here Comes The Weekend"?

OK, I only got Camper, Cat Stevens, Brian Eno, Them/Van Morrison, Pixoids, and the Beat-less.

Also, in addition to Blank Crisis's suggestion (Rockpile!), I would add:

"Here Come the Waterworks"
"Jetz Kommt Die Flut/Here Comes the Flood"

Excellent suggestions, both. I'll post the answers in awhile... but I am confused by Paula's comment about "Camper". None of these are CVB songs.

Oh, woops, I read too fast and thought "Here Comes that Rainy day Feeling" = "Oh No Here it Comes Again that Funny Feeling."

Which, it turns out, is not the title anyway.

And in case anyine cares, mine were Scout and Peter Gabriel respectively.

I was thinking of What's With Terry by the Undertones, stead of Here Comes Terry.

Sorry this isn't timely: I read the entry when I was biz-zee, and sorta forgot about it... I haven't looked at other people's answers, but just for fun I'll give it a go:

"Bums": Snakefinger. "Cowboys" Psy. Furs. "Girl" T. Petty & H.b. "Nice" izzit Pretty Things? "Night" Them. "Regular" 'Mats. "Rome Plows" Drive Like Jehu. "Santa Claus" everyone on the planet's done that! "Savior" crap, I should know this... "Success" Iggy. "Sun" Uh...Quarrymen? "Terry" Undertones. "Jets" Eno. "Man" Pixies.

And: "Anaesthetist" Genesis.

You'll notice the ones with common nouns are the ones I can't call to mind...

Now I'll go see if you put the answers up...

Wait! Isn't "Here Comes the Savior" by P. Hux?

At 7/03/2007 12:00 AM , Blogger 2fs said...

Okay, I read the answers: I guessed wrong on two of 'em (I think we should receive half-credit for the Undertones - obviously a popular, if wrong, rendering of that title! And damn - I'm glad P. Hux popped into my brain at the last minute.

I'll give you half credit for the Undertones, but I must dock you one point for "the Quarrymen" -- was that a Billy Childish group? I think they were on Larry King the other night... "Here Comes the Gear, Lads" is a Frank Zappa title.
