Song lyric round up III

February 17th is the date where, for the past two years I have listed all the titles from my blog that have been song lyrics, and IDed them for anyone who happens to care.

Got to do it again, since it's a tradition now.

Only going forward from 2/18/05 through today, of course. If you want more, click on the links above. [lazy]

"Three... is a magic number." on May 20th, 2005 is from Three is a Magic Number by Schoolhouse Rock. (It was also covered by Blind Melon in an attempt to help Gen Xers cash in on nostalgia)

"Hi ho" on May 25th, 2005, is from Heigh Ho (Dwarfs' Digging and Marching Song) by the seven dwarfs, and which was in the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. (although I obviously can't spell.)

"There's only one way. There's only one way... to rock!" on June 4th, 2005, is from There's Only One Way To Rock by Van Halen.

"Phone calls! We get your phone calls! We get your phone calls everyday!" on June 9th, 2005, is a jingle from the Howard Stern show.

"Hit Me Baby 1 More Time" on June 10th, 2005, is from ...Baby One More Time, by Britney Spears.

"I get by with a little help from my friends." on July 13th, 2005, is from With a Little Help From My Friends, by The Beatles (also done by Joe Cocker)

"I don't like Mondays." on August 8th, 2005, is from I Don't Like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats.

"I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes" on August 11th, 2005, is from The Sign by Ace of Base.

"What would you say, if I took those words away?" on September 7th, 2005, is from More Than Words by Extreme.

"It's a gas gas gas!" on September 30th, 2005, is from Jumpin' Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones.

"Wake me up when September ends" on September 30th, 2005, is from Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day.

"Hail, hail, rock and roll." on October 25th, 2005, is from Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' roll! by Chuck Berry. (Erm. I think. My Google-fu is kinda rusty.)

"Talk about, pop music." on October 26th, 2005, is from Pop Music, by M.

"Same old song, DJ sucks." on October 28th, 2005, is from Radio Song by REM

"Play the funky music, white boy!" on December 3rd, 2005, is from Play That Funky Music (White Boy) by Wild Cherry.

"Time to get ill" on December 8th, 2005, is from Time to Get Ill by the Beastie Boys (aww, mom, you're just jealous!)

And that's it! Wow. Much less than previous years. I, I know that part of the reason for that is because I've been self-conscious of the fact that on Feb. 17th I'd be making this list, so I've used less song lyrics than I normally would. I've said it before, I'll undoubtedly say it again, brains are weird.
