Banner and music memeage

I've got a new 88 * 31 microbanner up in case you want to do exciting things! Like linking visually to Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan on your own website!
Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan
Feel free to deeplink; it's only a small file.


Since that's not enough to fill a post with, here's a music quiz. Random playlist, first 20 songs, first line or two of each (not counting spoken interjections, and I'll be skipping the Sigur Ros stuff because it doesn't come with lyric sheets. Also, I'll skip the instrumentals and any band or artist showing up twice). Guess! I'll update with the correct guesses and credit for them. It's a varied list and may be a bit more difficult than many other such quizzes, but quite a few of these tracks came from recent free CDs given away by record stores or coming with international music magazines so they shouldn't be completely unguessable. Others are from records mentioned on this very blog, so there's an opportunity for you to cheat.

1. Windy bus stop, click, shopwindow, heel. Shady gentlemen, fly-button feel.
2. My name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep (chimney sweep).
3. Do you see around us, what is going on? I had never seen it; now one fourth has gone.
4. Om eg bare fant et hull inn i himmelen slipper eg å spa kull i den store kaminen.
5. Then she came, through the door, her high heels clacking on the floor. I was pissed, I was blue, I had nothing better to do.
6. I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
7. Ik zit in het goud van de dalende zon. Ik kijk van me af. Kilometers ver over het land. De nacht valt hier niet, maar rukt op.
8. Hörkutröllin hraeða geð rimþsarnir fornir dvergar álvar draugar með disir völvur nornir.
9. Let the light in the window! Party's doing fine. Look at my watch, fifteen after nine. [[Difficult, may be misheard. The guitarist on this record also plays on 6, making this a borderline case of performer repetition]]
10. Don't wanna wake up. Don't wanna wake up. I wanna sleep.
11. Ta bean in Eirinn a phronnfadh sead damh is mo shaith le n-ol
12. I forbid you maidens all, that wear gold in your hair, to travel to Carterhaugh, for young [edited] is there. [[let's not make it too easy]]
13. Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away. Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
14. Indifference is the hardest blow. It is the wind and icy snow.
15. As I walked out on a midsummer's morning, to view the fields and to take the air, down by the banks of the sweet primroses, 'twas there I beheld a most lovely fair. [[not as performed by the same people who recorded 12]]
16. I've got a sweet li'l angel; I love the way she spreads her wings.
17. She is so beautiful. I've got no words to describe the way she makes me feel inside.
18. Komt jonge dochters, wilt mijn smart doorgronden. Ik heb beschreven mijne levensloop. Ik heb zoveel droefheid ondervonden. Minnaar gij zijt de schuld van mijn droefheid.
19. Oh baby baby, how was I supposed to know that something wasn't right. Oh baby baby, I shouldn't have let you go. Now you're out of sight. [[Now you know that this isn't the original, don't you?]]
20. Baby's gone and I don't know why. She lit out this morning. Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky, she left me without warning.

Bonus: I can't properly make out what this woman sings and there are no lyrics in the CD booklet, but guess anyway:
21. I won't be a victim, a beggar or a fool. I travel in my [[life?]] by the golden rule.

Post your answers in my Livejournal.
