music friday: one i didn't attend

If you’re on Facebook, you couldn’t have missed this one. List a bunch of acts you’ve seen live, add one act you’ve never seen, and ask your Facebook friends to tell you which one is the lie. Here was my list, with Music Friday tunes attached:

k.d. lang, “Crying.”
Malcolm McLaren, “Waltz Darling.”
Paul McCartney & Wings, “Live and Let Die.”
Orchestral Manouevers in the Dark, “Electricity.”
Sha Na Na, “Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay.”
Ike & Tina Turner, “Proud Mary.”
Quicksilver Messenger Service, “Edward the Mad Shirt Grinder.”
Youssou N'Dour, “7 Seconds.”
Gary Wright, “Dream Weaver.”
Blondie, “One Way or Another.”
Hootie and the Blowfish, “Hold My Hand.”
Sun Ra, “Retrospekt.”

BTW, the lie was Quicksilver.



This meme is kind of predictable for most people. 9 of the bands are the kind of music you associate with them. One is way out there. It's never the one that's way out there. Yours is harder because you're so eclectic in your tastes and also an avid concert goer. And you live in the Bay Area. That's probably a big part of it, too. In the end, you could have seen anybody that's performed in the last 40 years and I wouldn't be surprised.

I know what you mean. These should be fairly easy. Yet I've only guessed one correctly, and she had included the Sex Pistols, which if she'd seen them, I'd know, so it was a gimme. There's something look-at-me-I'm-preening about these lists, but nonetheless I'm fascinated by the acts people have seen.
