Can You Guess?

I thought I'd do something frivolous today and let you test your knowledge of music. Listed below are groupings of songs all sung by the same artist. Most of the songs were from this person's solo career, but a few have been performed while part of a group. Your mission is to simply see if you can guess who the artist is and leave a comment. If you do guess the artist (and I'm sure you will) let me know which is your favorite song by that person (even if it's not a song listed here) and how many groups you had to look through before you figured it out. The list starts with more obscure songs which only a die hard fan would recognize, and it gets progressively easier as you scroll down. So don't look down to fast! Go slowly through each group and see if you can guess who it is! I hope this entertains you even if only for a fleeting moment. Happy Friday ;-)

group a:
  • Outside the Rain
  • I Will Run to You
  • No Spoken Word
  • Long Way to Go
  • Destiny

group b:

  • Too Far from Texas
  • Sometimes it's a Bitch
  • After the Glitter Fades

group c:

  • Beauty and the Beast
  • I Sing for the Things
  • Two Kinds of Love

  • Blue Denim

group d:

  • Twisted
  • Candlebright
  • Silver Springs
  • Whenever I Call You Friend
group e:
  • Enchanted
  • Every Day
  • How Still My Love
  • Trouble in Shangri-La
  • Nothing Ever Changes
  • Planets of the Universe
group f:
  • Bella Donna
  • Rooms on Fire
  • Wild Heart
  • I Can't Wait
group g:
  • Talk to Me
  • Sara
  • Dreams
  • Stop Draggin' My Heart Around
  • Rhiannon
  • Stand Back
  • Leather and Lace
  • Edge of Seventeen
OK, now leave a comment with: 1) who the artist is, 2) what your favorite song is and 3) how many groups of songs did it take for you to guess the artist. Happy Friday!
-Rick Rockhill ps: the answer is Stevie Nicks, solo artist and member of Fleetwood Mac

It took me until Group D where I recognized Silver Springs.

Rooms on Fire and Stand Back are my favorite Stevie songs and Hold Me is my all-time favorite Fleetwood Mac track.

Rick, remember...I'm just a simple dude from Idaho upbringings. You're really testing me here.

Stevie Nicks. Had it at Run to Me, because I got into a big argument over Whitney in The Body Guard...I'm not a huge fan, but most songs are familiar.

So, I'm afraid my age is showing, Rick....I do not have a clue to any of it...! This really made my Friday Night...lol!

tt said...

Group d....Whenever i call you friend.........I usually only recognise songs when I hear them on the radio. I've never been good at titles or artists..and I'm a child of the 60's!! go figure!
