Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list your ten favorite songs that begin with that letter.

I got 'K' from lantisescudo. So, in no particular order (just the ones I could find on iTunes):

"Kathy's Waltz" by Dave Brubeck - one of the more normal time signatures on the album Time Out.
"Kick in the Ass" by Moxy Fruvous - a nice little a capella (plus drums) ditty about the people who deserve a kick in the ass.
"Killer Queen" by Queen - In my opinion a mid-range song from Queen, but still pretty good.
"King Herod's Song" from Jesus Christ Superstar - you have to hear this one to believe it. The idea of Herod singing a ditty like this is amazing.
"King of Comedy" by REM - Not much to say about this one. Some of their typical southern-alternative-rock music.
"King of Pain" by the Police - a classic, with some rather poetic imagery that would probably be considered "goth" by today's standards.
"King of Spain" by Moxy Fruvous - A prince-and-the-pauper style song about an abdicated king who goes on to drive the zamboni for the Leafs.
"King of Suede" by Weird Al - A parody of the above Police song.
"Kings" by Steely Dan - I'm honestly not sure what this song is about, but I like its sound.
"Knockin' On Heaven's Door" by Bob Dylan - Another classic. I've also got covers by Def Leppard (I think? Might be Guns'n'Roses) and D.C. Simpson (of Ozy and Millie fame).

Okay, I'll bite.

Heh, "Killer Queen" is one of my favorite songs to play on Guitar Hero.

Give to me a letter?

Yay King Herod's Song! Truly nerdy question- is it the old/movie version or the revival version?

Okay, your letter is 'C'.

The song is off the original Broadway cast recording, I think.

It was rewritten for the new revival, and it's kind of got a rhumba beat now. I can't decide which version I prefer (though the rewrites are generally silly/annoying).

Nice list. I usually don't, but this one looks fun. Plus, I haven't posted anything yet this week and I hate breaking promises to myself in the first month. Plus, I get to be a couple days late, and comment #13... So yeah, shoot.

Very well. In commemoration of the fact that I finally found my copy of Phoenix Guards (and since I don't have my dice at hand), your letter is 'B'.

/me breathes a sigh of relief for != Q...

Whee! Thank you!

/me runs off to basement laboratory, clutching precious 'B' and chortling madly.
