    First Track Match-Ups

    Using the lead track(s) only from an album (preferably studio), match at least 2 (or 3 -- or more, if you're up to it) songs that have the same word in the title.   The word can appear in any spot in the title; it doesn't have to be the first word.   

    Also, it's fine to use the first track of the B-side of a vinyl record.  Some of the older classic rock albums were originally on vinyl, so the B-side first tracks count.  

    If you go for three tracks, the third song can play off of the second song (see below), or the firstsong: your choice.   

    Let's start with:

    Back in the Saddle - Aerosmith (Rocks)

    Back in Black  - AC/DC

    Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

    Wow, nice work.  (I have to speak to Roger in private, however).  :)

    I checked back at the end of the day and didn't see any input, so I thought  ... did I goof on this request?    Glad you proved me wrong.    Yet, they are a challenge for sure.  

     

    I never make the same mistake twice.  I make it five or six times, just to be sure.

    Roger, I like you ... but is "Look Sharp" the first track of Joe Jackson's album, or the 7th track?   ALL of the songs have to be the lead track of an album --- sorry.    That's why this is a challenge.    "Sharp Dressed Man" isn't the lead song, either.   sorry.    :(   Try again.

    That hurt my head a bit.  To be honest, I only made the effort because it's your thread. Smile

    hahahah  -- and thanks.  I don't know, I rarely stump the "panel" here.  This is very difficult because the scope of albums to choose from needs to be really vast, in order to come up with a match.   You came through and that's all that counts.    Smile   

    With so few of us around this summer, the pressure is on.  

    HINT for another one, just in case:

    There's at least one first track from a Beatles album that would work.

    Wow, very impressive list.     

    "Rolling in the Deep" could be an add-on for the other two "rolling" songs (Adele's "21" album), but I could only add that now, as I never would have known the other lead tracks that are on your list.

    You're on a roll.   So, let's up the stakes, shall we?     :)

    See if you can put together a match or two with one of Elton John's lead album tracks.   I thought I had one,  but alas ... not quite.   If anyone can channel that match, there's a high probability it's you.

    Dry your eyes, dear.  :)  

    I wouldn't be a friend if I didn't tell you that you goofed, would I?    No big deal, and BTW, there might be some Queen albums that would work ... ?

    Did I really set myself up like that?!   I did not expect that choice, but hey, you took and met the challenge, so hats off to you, gerbs.

    Interesting choices, not to mention matching them up.  

    "Honey White" is such a good song.    Moby, too.   Interesting character.   I didn't think much of him in the past, but in more current days, I'm on board.   A thread idea in the making, maybe.

    Re: First Track Match-Ups

    Okay, finally got one.   Seems a bit unfair that I would scrape by with a relatively easy one, so I thought I should dream up at least one more:

    Building a Mystery - Sarah McLachlan (Surfacing)
    Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles 

    A third lead track here is not doable (at least for me) however.   :)

     

    I never make the same mistake twice.  I make it five or six times, just to be sure.
