I have another question, but keep discussing Fiddy's, too!

If you put your music on shuffle, what song comes on first? For me it's So You Want to Be a Rock n Roll Star by the Byrds. 

 

EDIT: everyone else is putting more, so here are my next four!

Get Enough- Paul 

Hello, I Love You- the Doors

Baby Lemonade- Syd Barrett

Death On Two Legs (Dedicated to...)- Queen

The first 5 on shuffle is:

Living A Lie (one of my songspaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif)

My Little Holiday (one of my band's songspaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif)

You Can't Not Like The Music (my favourite song I've done... and wtf is up with shuffle only picking my stuff??!)

Food (another of my songs, this is seriously weird...)

The Word .

wtf happened there... wasn't expecting that. Was only going to do one but it took me 5 until I got a 'real' song!

1) I don't like that many board games much but Monopoly is amazing.

2) 'Suite II Overture' (Janelle Monae) - 'The Only One' (Jimmy Page) - 'Corrina, Corrina' (George Winston) - 'Crackerbox Palace' (George Harrison ) - 'Lay Me Low' (Metamora) - 'Coming Back To Life' (Pink Floyd) - 'The Night Before ' (The Beatles)

I wanted to keep going till I got a Beatles song. a-hard-days-night-john-6

1. I like the kind of traditional Parker Bros. style, Monopoly-derived games I remember from kidhood - roll, move your piece around, pick up instructional cards, fulfill little side-deals and avoid setbacks in pursuit of the ultimate goal! I'm thinking of Careers and Gambler in particular. 

2. First few tracks on shuffle, likewise till I hit a Beatles song  

 

Bobby Hutcherson, "Air"

Beethoven: Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 2 In G Minor, Op. 5 No. 2 iii. Rondo Allegro, Zuill Bailey/Simone Dinnerstein

Lil Johnson, "Keep On Knockin"

Bizarros, "The Waves Cry"

Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, "Warm-Up And Dialogue Between Lee And Rudy/Moanin'";    

Beatles, "The Inner Light " (Von Bontee's "Alternate Hystery Tour" mix)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Anyway:

What is your favorite non-Beatles (and non-solo-Beatles) song? Mine is probably Care Of Cell 44.

I'm not even going to try to answer that question. It would tear me apart to choose between my other four favourite artists' catalogues a-hard-days-night-paul-7

That's an incredibly tough question but I'm going to go with ABBA's rip-off of If I Needed Someone , Santa Rosa.

Favourite board game? Snakes and ladders, I guess, because I have a fold-up magnetic pocket version I bought at a school fete like seven years ago.a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Favourite non-Beatles song of all time is probably The Air That I Breathe. Either that or Glen Campbell's By The Time I Get To Phoenix.

My favourite board game is tricky. I play a lot of board games with my secondary-school friends whenever we meet up, predominantly Cluedo (Clue for you Yanks), Risk, and a game called 30 Seconds (which we play the Irish edition of).

I like card games as well. A game I like to play with any new people I meet is Fluxx Doctor Who, you don't have to know anything about Doctor Who (nor do you have to have good English which works well with international students) to play it. It's very easy-to-play and understand and a person can leave or join at any time without affecting the game- it's pretty good.

 

And my favourite non-Beatles song? Lordy lord, I can shorten it down to about a 100 tracks? If I was very much stuck I'd probably go with Waterloo Sunset- it has everything in a track that I like and I could happily listen to it over-and-over again.

Less of a board game guy more of a table sports person. Foosball, Ping Pong, etc.
