Meme That Picture

Ding! You're Free To Move About The Web.
I'm not a big fan of memes, but I have to admit some of them can be fun and interesting. I don't know if this idea is original or not, but I thought I'd try to create a meme of my own. The idea was to find some images, post them, and then assign a song title(s) that best describe them. I tried to choose funny pictures, a little out of character for me don't you think?
Drive My Car - Beatles
These Eyes - Guess Who
Hot Rod Lincoln - Commander Cody & the Lost Planet Airmen
Every Breath You Take - Police

The first thing that popped up, well the first thing that popped into my mind with this one was:
Sugar, Sugar - the Archies
(You are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you.)
9 To 5 - Dolly Parton
(Any Dolly Parton song works.)
Whole Lot of Shakin' - Jerry Lee lewis
(Nuff said?)
Red Rubber Ball - the Cyrcle

Cross dressing reminds me of one song. So this one had to be:
Lola - the Kinks
(Then again, this one works too.)
The Lumberjack Song - Monty Python
(What reference to snakes would be complete without Jim Morrison?)
Crawlin' King Snake - the Doors

The first thought here is rather obvious:
Mona Lisa - Nat King Cole
(I think another one will work here too:)
One Toke Over The Line - Brewer and Shipley
Smile A Little Smile - The Flying Machine
(Smile a little smile for me, Rosemarie, Rosemarie.)

Lastly, this lovely lady conjures up:
Little Old Lady From Pasadena - Beach Boys
(How about a rather obscure one from an equally obscure group?)
Hey Grandma - Moby Grape
(Maybe I can sneak I can sneak in another?)
Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Well, there is an attempt at this idea using 5 images. Maybe some of you Meme Masters out there can take this idea and run with it?

Maybe you can come up with some better songs for the pics I chose. Come on, you know you want to take up the challenge.

Your choices were great.

I've got one for each picture:

#1 - I only have eyes for you (Art Garfunkle ... don't remember who did the original)

#2 - Pour Some Sugar On Me (Def Leppard) or CandyMan (James Taylor).

#3 - Any song from the movie The Crying Game, or Dude Look Like A Lady (Aerosmith) (hard to top L-O-L-A!)

#4 - Smoke gets in your eyes (The Platters)

#5 - Grandma Got Runover By a Reindeer ...

That's all I got! Brilliant idea for a post, Mike.

That is an excellent meme game. If I knew the names to songs.. or who sang them I'd participate. I'm a total music nerd.. I know nothing but I sure do try to sing along. Most people remind me when I do that to never quit my day job. :) thanks for visiting me via ivy.

String - Excellent choices yourself. "I Only Have Eyes For You" was originally done by The Flamingos - way back in 1959. It has staaying power and is a classic "first dance" song at many weddings.

Da Gal - All you need is titles. Who did them really isn't important unless the name is the tie-in with the picture. (I used Dolly Parton and Police.)

Thanks for leaving a comment on my site, I don't get around to new sites much but yours looks pretty interesting. I like your list of songs that came to mind with the pictures. Some good ones in there that definitely are good ones to go with the pictures.

Good pics and idea Mike, but I'm not breakin' my no memes rule!!

I figured you'd know who sang it. You are encyclopedic in that period of music, for sure.
