    Default All New Song Game Mach III

    I'm so sorry Mish, Billy swooped and left me holding the bag...



    Welcome to the all-new, well somewhat new, version of The Song Game that Winterless Iceness introduced to this board many moons ago.

    Three Great Levels Of Play! Three Great Levels Of Fun!


    Beginner - Use one word of the song title in the previous post ("The" and "A" cannot be used as a connecting word)

    Intermediate - Use the antonym of a word in the previous post (see example below)

    Serious Competitor - Use both an antonym and one word of the song title in the previous post (see example below)


    Rules for Intermediate and Serious Competitor Play

    Each player must take one word of the former poster's title and change it to its antonym.

    What the hell am I talking about, you ask?

    Suppose someone posted -

    Love Will Keep Us Together - Captain & Tennille

    The next player could chose to use either the words:

    Hate (for love)

    Apart (for together)

    Won't (for will)

    Me (for Us)

    You (for Us)

    or

    Give Away (for Keep) or any other antonym of the original words

    So proper responses to: "Love Will Keep Us Together" could include:

    Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
    Won't Get Fooled Again The Who
    Me and You and A Dog Named Boo - Lobo (thanks, Padraig!)
    or
    Give It Away - RHCP

    There is no scoring, just the joy of knowing you know your song titles.

    Ready?


    Here's one that will stimulate all levels of play:

    Rock Paper Scissors - Ani DiFranco

    I assure the Serious Competitors, it can be done

    nevermind again.

    was gonna say, Cuts Like A Knife - Bryan Adams. But that's a synonym, not an antonym.

    somebody smarter than me take over, please..

    See, not so hard. Knife can be used in place of scissors. We're not that strict here (unless you use "the" as a connecting word). You could have also used any of those words and play like always.

    (I Hate) Everything About You - Ugly Kid Joe (hate is antonym of like)

    I think I'll join in on the intermediate level...

    Nothin' But Blue - Brian May

    (nothin' as an antonym of everything - does that get me some bonus points 'cause I stayed within my "Queen & related" paradigm? )

    There's a poem called:

    Her Blue Body Everything We Know - Alice Walker .

    as for a song -

    Don't Believe Everything You Hear - The Ocean Blue



    Padraig, since you are already a member of the Hall of Fame we do not award extra points.

    I would think "We" would be opposite of "They" or "Them", but "You" is certainly an antonym of "I" - or it should be!

    You Won't Forget (About Me) - Wanda Jackson (that's serious!)


    The antonym of the plural "we" would have to be singular, wouldn't it? Guess not, they or them is correct. But I would think you or I could be used as an antonym for we.

    This is getting rather complicating - but I like it that way, 'cause it's more challenging! Great idea so far, Yesterdays, it's really growing on me!

    Sorry, Padraig. I have to go now. I missed my Trivia Night because of Billy swooping down like that.... but I still have to go eat. See you later, or tomorrow. Have a good one ready for me when I get back.

    No worries, your idea - your thread! It makes all the sense in the world that it's been re-started
