I know one & you knew I'd know it d) "That's a little bit obscene, gotta let of a little steam" which is sexy & 17 By The Stray Cats but b) "Elephants and tambourines are playin' in the band" is also covered by The Cats, the chap that posted before me covers who that's by. They all sound familiar, just can't remember :)

I think i know 2 of the songs, probably because i like the songs and the artists! b. Lookin Out My Back Door- Creedence Clearwater Revival. h. Friends In Low Places- Garth Brooks. John Fogerty was just in our city on the 29th, a few of my friends went to see him in concert! Take care Visitorinvasion.

Thanks, Bud Sr. I like those songs too. Believe it or not, my 16 year old likes CCR (insert wide-eyed smiley here). Please feel free to stop back by and see if anyone else gets any of them :D Ciao4now

I'm no good at these types of musical guess the songs things!! unless they were head banging tunes that would make a granny curdle in her grave! I'm more one for listening to mindless tunes and then wondering and puzzling over what the hell they was saying sort of thing!!
