Still a lot of blanks in the consolidation.... especially in the lyrics, which are usually relatively complete by this point in a game's life. It seems like too many to just start looking them up...

Sorry, but Dulles (Princeton '08) was Secretary of State. Also, Vietnamization was a policy in the '60s, when Dulles was no longer with us.

Incorporated all the answers given since the last consolidation, removed questions marks where appropriate, and added a few answers. Still a long way to go, though.

Game #195: Discography

Identify the 45 songs in List A and the 100 people in List B. Then, match each song to two people, according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Five songs will be used twice.

LIST A: SONGS

A-1. Rise up, gather round,
Rock this place to the ground,
Burn it up, let's go for broke,
Watch the night go up in smoke.

Rock of Ages – Def Leppard

A-2. You lying so low in the weeds,
I bet you gonna ambush me.
You'd have me down, down, down on my knees.

Barracuda -- Heart

A-3. Yesterday and days before,
Sun is cold and rain is hard.
I know been that way for all my time.
'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow,
I know it can't stop, I wonder.

Have You Ever Seen the Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival

A-4. He left no time to regret,
Kept his d**k wet
With his same old safe bet.
Me and my head high
And my tears dry,
Get on without my guy.

Back to Black – Amy Winehouse

A-5. You lead us along,
My love and me, as we sing
Our early morning singing song.

Good Morning Starshine -- Oliver

A-6. You let me violate you,
You let me desecrate you,
You let me penetrate you,
You let me complicate you.

Closer – Nine Inch Nails

A-7. When some sweet hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go must've got up and went,
Well, I got good news, she's a real good liar
'Cause the backstage boogie sets your pants on fire.

Sweet Emotion -- Aerosmith

A-8. Chillin'; cooler den a squeak; kickin' dirt on my sneakers.
Suckers on the corner lookin' down at their beepers.
They couldn't get a job or a nice home,
So they want to stay and wait for the pay-phone.

Playground – Another Bad Creation

A-9. I cry each night my tears for you.
My tears are all in vain.
I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
You'll be back in my arms once again.

Puppy Love – Paul Anka or Donny Osmond

A-10. It's the way you love me,
It's a feeling like this,
It's centrifugal motion,
It's perpetual bliss.

This Kiss – Faith Hill

A-11. You told me that you loved me.
Now, girl, show me.
'Cause I can't believe it's true
By the things you do.

A-12. I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin,
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised.
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide.

Mr. Roboto -- Styx

A-13. I was told when I got older all my fears would shrink,
But now I'm insecure and I care what people think.

Stressed Out – Twenty-one Pilots

A-14. And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away,
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away.

Name – Goo Goo Dolls


A-15. But when we leave this year, we won't be coming back,
No more hanging out 'cause we're on a different track.

Graduation Song – Vitamin C

A-16. My man put me up for the share, one-fourth of a square,
Headed for Delaware with one change of gear.
Nothin’ on my mind but the dime sack we blazed
With the glaze in my eye, that we find when we crave.

A-17. Hold me,
I'll give that you need,
Wrap your love around me,
You're so excited I can feel you getting hotter.

Jump (for my Love) – The Pointer Sisters

A-18. If you want my future, forget my past,
If you wanna get with me, better make it fast.
Now don't go wasting my precious time,
Get your act together, we could be just fine.

Wannabe – Spice Girls

A-19. I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice –
By once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times.
So let me, oh, let me redeem, oh, redeem myself tonight
'Cause I just need one more shot at second chances.

Sorry – Justin Bieber

A-20. Why in the world would anybody put chains on me?
I've paid my dues to make it.
Everybody wants me to be what they want me to be.
I'm not happy when I try to fake it.

But it's so hard to talk to you with fellas hanging 'round you all the time.

I was uptight, wanna let loose,
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my own life behind.

She's a frozen fire,
She's my one desire.

Smiling just to see the smile upon your face.

And I know you miss your dad when I'm gone,

With just the wave of your smile,
Soothed my doubt
And eased my worried mind.

You don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
'Cause you've taken her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed.

If I were a Boy -- Beyonce

When I start to brag about my car,
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far.

Don’t Worry Baby – The Beach Boys

A-30. This perfect romance that I've created in my mind,
I'd live a thousand lives
Each one with you right by my side,
But yet we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance
And so it seems like we'll never have the chance.

Contagious as you think I am?
Just tilt my sun towards your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

Married with a lack of vision.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears for Fears

A-33. How could you be so cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo?

I mean after all the things we got into.

Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay.

Couldn't be much more from the heart.
Forever trust in who we are.

Even tho I know I'll treat you better than he can.

Stopped at the record hop, I had to be a sport.
We jumped and we did the slop,
Then you walked in and I was caught.

Don’t Hang Up – The Orlons

A-38. Girl, I can buy your ass the world with my pay stub.
Ooh, that p**sy good, won't you sit it on my taste buds?
I get way too petty once you let me do the extras.
Pull up on your block, then break it down, we playing Tetris.

A-39. I wanna see y'all, who wanna plan with me?
Wave your hands across the land if we family.

Who wears cheetah?

I have been looking at this every so often as well to see if anything clicks. So far, the only thing I'm fairly confident of is that the artists of the songs will probably not be relevant.... my reasoning being that it seems like, based on the rules, that the songs are all going to be used for the same capacity... and since there's at least one song identified already that can be strongly associated with more than one artist, it doesn't seem like that would work (Unless it's part of why five of the songs will be used twice).

There are two wrong answers in the latest consolidation.

I apologize, I didn't realize how hard this one was going to be.

So one of the things that's been bothering me since the clue was identified was how in the world something was going to be tied to Nebuchadnezzar. Then I discovered that one of the artists was Amy Winehouse. A nebuchadnezzar is one of the measurements of wine volume, along with methuselah, jereboam, and others, i.e., a wine house. I can'tfind any others to make it fit, but maybe there are more here.

Other things I have noticed about the puzzle: Many, but not all, of the song titles are one word. Frank rarely uses one word song titles in lyrics games, because the titles are usually tied to the theme, and require two or more words to make the connection.

Frank says there are two wrong answers in this consolidation, so unless there's a wrong song in here somewhere, that means one of the answers I added since the last consolidation in the B-list is wrong.

He also says, in response to lb's comment, that he should have used a different song. Presumably that means that at least the artist is significant, if not the title as well.

Some interesting names on List B -- Fingers, Born, Crowe, Ferry, Milk, Ruby, Tweed, Baron, Plant, Boas, Stagg, Bush, Bell

I just think we're going to have to look up a few more names and song lyrics before we can crack the tangredi.

B-82. Minutes after hearing that his firm had won a landmark 1934 Supreme Court ruling, this publisher ordered his typesetters to get to work on the book that was the subject of the suit.

I thought that this was about the ban against Ulysses, but it never made it to the Supreme Court. If it is, then it is Random House. (I do not know if it still does, but it used to print Ulysses with a copy of the federal trial court opinion, making it the most published court opinion.)

B-83. This playwright won his third Pulitzer Prize for an experimental nine-act play.

I think that this is Edward Albee.

Mistake on my part there. I was referring to the Ulysses case. But I'm looking for an individual.

B-36. This saxophonist received many honors – including a posthumous Pulitzer Prize – but perhaps the most unique was being canonized by the African Orthodox Church.

I added some lookups, and put them in all caps so people can easily find them. I still haven't figured out where the two wrong ones are, so if anyone could chime in, it'd be welcome.

Incorporated all the answers given since the last consolidation, removed questions marks where appropriate, and added a few answers. Still a long way to go, though.

Game #195: Discography

Identify the 45 songs in List A and the 100 people in List B. Then, match each song to two people, according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Five songs will be used twice.

LIST A: SONGS

A-1. Rise up, gather round,
Rock this place to the ground,
Burn it up, let's go for broke,
Watch the night go up in smoke.

Rock of Ages – Def Leppard

A-2. You lying so low in the weeds,
I bet you gonna ambush me.
You'd have me down, down, down on my knees.

Barracuda -- Heart

A-3. Yesterday and days before,
Sun is cold and rain is hard.
I know been that way for all my time.
'Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow,
I know it can't stop, I wonder.

Have You Ever Seen the Rain – Creedence Clearwater Revival

A-4. He left no time to regret,
Kept his d**k wet
With his same old safe bet.
Me and my head high
And my tears dry,
Get on without my guy.

Back to Black – Amy Winehouse

A-5. You lead us along,
My love and me, as we sing
Our early morning singing song.

Good Morning Starshine -- Oliver

A-6. You let me violate you,
You let me desecrate you,
You let me penetrate you,
You let me complicate you.

Closer – Nine Inch Nails

A-7. When some sweet hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go must've got up and went,
Well, I got good news, she's a real good liar
'Cause the backstage boogie sets your pants on fire.

Sweet Emotion -- Aerosmith

A-8. Chillin'; cooler den a squeak; kickin' dirt on my sneakers.
Suckers on the corner lookin' down at their beepers.
They couldn't get a job or a nice home,
So they want to stay and wait for the pay-phone.

Playground – Another Bad Creation

A-9. I cry each night my tears for you.
My tears are all in vain.
I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
You'll be back in my arms once again.

Puppy Love – Paul Anka or Donny Osmond

A-10. It's the way you love me,
It's a feeling like this,
It's centrifugal motion,
It's perpetual bliss.

This Kiss – Faith Hill

A-11. You told me that you loved me.
Now, girl, show me.
'Cause I can't believe it's true
By the things you do.

I LIKE IT -- DINO

A-12. I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin,
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised.
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide.

Mr. Roboto -- Styx

A-13. I was told when I got older all my fears would shrink,
But now I'm insecure and I care what people think.

Stressed Out – Twenty-one Pilots

A-14. And even though the moment passed me by
I still can't turn away,
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away.

Name – Goo Goo Dolls


A-15. But when we leave this year, we won't be coming back,
No more hanging out 'cause we're on a different track.

Graduation Song – Vitamin C

A-16. My man put me up for the share, one-fourth of a square,
Headed for Delaware with one change of gear.
Nothin’ on my mind but the dime sack we blazed
With the glaze in my eye, that we find when we crave.

STREET DREAMS -- NAS

A-17. Hold me,
I'll give that you need,
Wrap your love around me,
You're so excited I can feel you getting hotter.

Jump (for my Love) – The Pointer Sisters

A-18. If you want my future, forget my past,
If you wanna get with me, better make it fast.
Now don't go wasting my precious time,
Get your act together, we could be just fine.

Wannabe – Spice Girls

A-19. I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice –
By once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times.
So let me, oh, let me redeem, oh, redeem myself tonight
'Cause I just need one more shot at second chances.

Sorry – Justin Bieber

A-20. Why in the world would anybody put chains on me?
I've paid my dues to make it.
Everybody wants me to be what they want me to be.
I'm not happy when I try to fake it.

Easy – The Commodores

A-21. First time that I saw you, girl, I knew that I just had to make you mine,
But it's so hard to talk to you with fellas hanging 'round you all the time.

A-22. Just a young gun with a quick fuse,
I was uptight, wanna let loose,
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my own life behind.

And she won't give up 'cause she's seventeen.
She's a frozen fire,
She's my one desire.

Smiling just to see the smile upon your face.
These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive,
These are the moments I'll remember all my life.

A-25. I know you miss your mom
And I know you miss your dad when I'm gone,
But I'm trying to give you the life that I never had.
I can see you're sad.

Workouts in the health spa, muscles grow.

Macho Man – Village People

A-27. You changed my life
With just the wave of your smile,
Soothed my doubt
And eased my worried mind.

Atlanta Lady -- Marty Balin

A-28. You don't listen to her
You don't care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
'Cause you've taken her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed.

If I were a Boy -- Beyonce

A-29. I guess I should've kept my mouth shut
When I start to brag about my car,
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far.

Don’t Worry Baby – The Beach Boys

A-30. This perfect romance that I've created in my mind,
I'd live a thousand lives
Each one with you right by my side,
But yet we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance
And so it seems like we'll never have the chance.

Ain't it Funny -- Jennifer Lopez

A-31. Why drink the water from my hand,
Contagious as you think I am?
Just tilt my sun towards your domain.
Your cup runneth over again.

December – Collective Soul

Married with a lack of vision.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears for Fears

A-33. How could you be so cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo?
Just remember that you talkin' to me though.
You know need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo,
I mean after all the things that we've been through,
I mean after all the things we got into.

HEARTLESS -- KANYE WEST

A-34. You're digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay.

Couldn't be much more from the heart.
Forever trust in who we are.

Even tho I know I'll treat you better than he can.

CAN'T HELP BUT WAIT -- TREY SONGZ

A-37. They took a ride so, baby, I went too,
Stopped at the record hop, I had to be a sport.
We jumped and we did the slop,
Then you walked in and I was caught.

Don’t Hang Up – The Orlons

A-38. Girl, I can buy your ass the world with my pay stub.
Ooh, that p**sy good, won't you sit it on my taste buds?

Wave your hands across the land if we family.

Who wears cheetah?

Playin' make believe you're married to me.
You were fifth grade, I was sixth
When we came to be.

Light from the neons turned the dark to day,
We were too hot to think of sleeping,
We had to get out before the magic got away.

Running with the Night – Lionel Richie

A-43. A local boy kicked me in the butt last week.
