Oh, fun! And… hard.

1. Wtf is this huge thing? Is that Steven in the left hand corner? Is it something like I dunno, Live Aid or like, Springsteen and Friends? Is hat Bruc ein the middle not looking like Bruce at all? XD

2. Dunno. Looks like a soul dude.

3. Blues Brothers

4. DEMONS. Srsly, they look so evil. Cash and Dylan obv.

5. Bob Marley

6. hum… Bon Jovi and some ladies?

7. I DON'T KNOW WHO THIS FABULOUS MAN IS. PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME. (also I figured out We Are Alive… darling, did you listen to Johnny Cash a lot while making this album?)

8. No idea, honestly. Looks like he would make a wonderful dragqueen though.

9. U2


11. Looks creepy. Dunno who it is. Composer? I have no clue.

12. Ah Waitsy Waits… haven't listened to you in a while.

13. Dunno.

14. I don't recognize them but that might be Steve Tyler looking weird in nice tights, so guessing Aerosmith (I don't know how the other members look so yeah)

15. dunno

16. dunno but the guy to the right looks like Swedish artist E-Type with that hair hahahaha.

17. No idea but that's quite a beautiful shot,

18. Queen looking like queens xD

19. No idea… he looks like he could've composed some cool scores or something.

20. *shrug*

21. You listen to a lot of bands with big hair

22. That's a cool beard

23. The guy to the far right reminds me of the werewolf in the US version of Being Human

24. Oh hello sir! Some classic composer I assume. Looking a bit like Stephen Fry.

25. I don't know but I am guessing Pete Seeger for some reasons… he's old and politically active and feels like you could listen to? XD

1. Yep, it's Little Steven in the left corner. Go look up on Wikipedia what LS was up to in 1985 ;) it's not Live Aid but you're close-ish. And yeah there's Bruce in there somewhere.

2. Lol close-ish.

3/4/5. correct! (And LOL THEY SO LOOK LIKE DEMONS)

6. Half right! Well, BJ is right but the ladies are actually a group so..

7. HAHAHAHAHAH WELL I'M SURE YOU'LL NEED A LOT OF ENLIGHTMENT (and I know? I think he was a lot into Cash & folk stuff lately)

8. ... my only comment is LOL. Also look at picture 6 >___>

9. Correct!

10. HAHAHAHAHHA WELL THEY'RE MY FAVORITES. and Italian, which is why no one is gonna get them, BUT. XD

11. Yep, composer. Can't give hints because then it'd be too easy.

12/14 correct!

aaah 17 <333 ;) and yeah that's a lovely shot indeed!

18. correct!

19. ... well, YES. XD


24. yep classic composer. who's Italian but yeah he does look a bit like SF.. XD

25. CORRECT! <333 I want to be like him when I'm his age. CAN I BE LIKE HIM WHEN I'M HIS AGE?
pnr on February 23rd, 2012 04:32 pm (UTC)
Now I'm gonna google hah! (But not goggle the pictures cause ethat would be proper cheating)

1. Wikipedia makes me think this is Artists United Against Apartheid

2. Still dunno and wouldn't know what to google anyway.

6. BJ aaand Sugarland?

7. I'm gonna guess this is Elvis. Caus eye's famous right?

8. AHA! He's errr… in the band. Let's see… Richie Sambora!

10. google isn't helping me DAMNIT

11. Oh so that's what Danny Elfman looks like! I don't like him that much.

17… it feels like I should think of a name (with all those hearts) but it stands still. It's like the name is just out of reach… arch!

19. HAH! I should've guessed Morricone like, right away. First name I googled for that one.

the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 04:38 pm (UTC)
1. Correct! Or, as I call them, We Are The World without the cheese and the pomp. XD and the song > WATW btw

2. Well, hint: he wrote a very famous song. Like. VERY FAMOUS. Yeah I know shit hint, but. XD

6. Correct!


8. Heeee yes! Oh Richie, your manliness is forever ruined for me.

10. Well other than Italian and totally insane, they're technically the best band we have around. But idk how famous they ever were outside Italy, they don't do the kind of Italian music that has a chance of selling outside the country..

11. Lol correct!


19. Correct again XD ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: nirvanajanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 05:51 pm (UTC)
16 is correct! Re 15 nope, Italian guy ;) 24... you're close! The last three letters of the name are right and he's an opera composer too, but he was from the previous generation.

the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 05:55 pm (UTC)
Yep, correct! :D
halfdutchhalfdutch on February 23rd, 2012 05:59 pm (UTC)
Yay! Now, if it were Verdi, I would know right away! Did you ever see "Moonstruck?" The grandfather looks just like him (down to the scarf), a friend of mine pointed out.

ETA: And good grief, #20 is Smashing Pumpkins! The blond, curly hair on Billy threw me at first.

the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
Moonstruck is the one with Cher and Nicholas Cage, right? I think I did but it was years ago, now I think I'll go have a look at it again asap because I really need to see the grandfather! And I had Verdi too in the list but alas he didn't show up...

And correct! :D I'll admit that I chose that one because I figured that the curly blonde hair would have made it harder... ;)
halfdutch: Eames by saber-sailorhalfdutch on February 23rd, 2012 06:19 pm (UTC)
Here's a pic of the grandfather, although without the scarf that makes him look so much like Verdi. And one more. I LOVE that movie! So much fun. And I dream of finding a straight man who will beg me to go to the opera with him. Like that'll ever happen!

And here's the trailer. Nic Cage has a Verdi portrait in his apartment, LOL!
the female ghost of tom joad: mozart >> everyonejanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 06:34 pm (UTC)
OMG he DOES look like Verdi! And mmmh okay I need to re-watch this asap.

I dream of finding a straight man who will beg me to go to the opera with him. Like that'll ever happen!

You and me both, you and me both..... where are all the cute straight guys who like opera? Where?

Is 2. Sam Cooke? And maybe 13. is Warren Zevon?

Some others are familiar but I cannot quite bring them to mind.
the female ghost of tom joad: warren zevonjanie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
2: close but no! For a hint, he wrote a song that got covered by pretty much the entire world. But 13 is indeed Zevon! *high five*
pnr on February 23rd, 2012 10:32 pm (UTC)
Oh wait. Hah! I figured it out. Ben E King!
the female ghost of tom joad: adrian pasdar *smile* <3janie_tangerine on February 23rd, 2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
Correct! :D
a geek in such the wrong way: music-vinylhaldoor on February 24th, 2012 06:53 am (UTC)
Oh, I was going to say Ben E. King too, but someone beat me back here!
a_carnal_mink: Bass DuffMcKagana_carnal_mink on February 23rd, 2012 11:43 pm (UTC)

Dammit, I'm way too late to get most of these (and I would totally have got A.U.A.A. straight off the bat - Sun City is my favourite charity record Of All Time! *grin*). But I'll take a guess at a couple of the unguessed ones...


2 - is it a very young Otis Redding?
17 - I wanna say John Frusciante but the photo looks like it's from the '70s!
23 - The Used?
the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on February 24th, 2012 12:05 am (UTC)
If Sun City is your favorite charity song you and me are going to get along SO WELL. ;) It's totally mine too and I'm very sad that it isn't more well-known.

2. Nope, the person above got it - it's Ben. E. King. ;)
17. IT IS JOHN FRUSCIANTE! <3 but yeah that pic has a very 70s style.
23. Nope. Those ones are from New Jersey and have a thing for quoting Springsteen. ;)
a_carnal_mink: Lemmya_carnal_mink on February 24th, 2012 12:15 am (UTC)

I'm very sad that it isn't more well-known.

Criminal, really. It was a decent hit in Australia at the time because it had Peter Garrett from Midnight Oil on it. :) But it's really sad to see it become so forgotten since. It was the only charity record that wasn't smaltzy and limp - thing kicked arse!

23 - Gaslight Anthem then?
the female ghost of tom joad: bruce no surrender #2janie_tangerine on February 24th, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
I KNOW? That song actually rocks. Might be that Little Steven isn't really the kind for mushy songs with cheesy lyrics (for which I'm totally happy), but it was just a darn good song other than being for a good cause. Meh, it's really criminal indeed. :/ I think it did decently in some European countries too but still, a pity.

Aaand correct re Gaslight Anthem!
brokentoybrokentoy on February 25th, 2012 03:29 am (UTC)
always late to the party but at least i have number 15 for me: de andré :)
the female ghost of tom joad: musicjanie_tangerine on February 25th, 2012 11:31 pm (UTC)
Aaand correct! ;) (I was so hoping he wouldn't go unguessed <3)
cassiopeia7: &hearts!cassiopeia7 on February 25th, 2012 04:36 pm (UTC)
Ennio Morricone? Ennio Morricone?!? *bows at your feet*
the female ghost of tom joad: CLINT XQ_janie_tangerine on February 25th, 2012 11:32 pm (UTC)
He isn't in my top 15 last.fm plays for nothing ;) Morricone >>> everyone else if we're talking about scores. <3
