Yes, the hints have something to do with each song. Also, yes, you may Google to try and find these songs.

Thirdly, because I have to tell a person if each guess is correct on here or not, I will not post additional hints in this topic. From now on they will be scattered throughout the forum, mainly in the AIO discussion.

1917 - Over There
1927 - Are You Lonesome Tonight?

To be honest, I didn't actually know of "Over There" until I looked it up. :x

1939 - A song written to teach little children how to perform a tap-dance routine known as the "Waltz Clog." Originally known as The Teapot Song. (1939) - I'm a Little Teapot

1938 - I beg to be adored. I lost control, and tumbled overboard. (1938) - Heart and Soul

1937 - A very Depression-esque song, with a line of hit sung in the 1996 film Jingle All the Way. (Think of the scene with the illegal toy manufacturers.) (1937) - The Little Boy that Santa Forgot

1936 - A Bing Crosby song whose original recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2004. (1936) - Pennies from Heaven

1935 - Shirley Temple. Curly Top. (1935) - Hmm, not sure which you mean - Animal Crackers in My Soup is by far the most famous, When I Grow Up, Curly Top, It's All So New to Me, On the Beach at Waikiki, and the Simple Things in Life were all in the movie Curly Top and all from 1935.

1933 - The Hungarian Suicide Song (1933) - Gloomy Sunday

1932 - A song written by a pro-Communist author displaying the supposed abuses of wealthy capitalists upon a Chinese immigrant. (1932) - Chinaman, Laundryman

1931 - Things are never black as they are painted, It's time for you and Joy to get acquainted... (1931) - Smile, Darn Ya, Smile

1929 - Gene Kelly, 1952. (1929) - I have to assume Singin' in the Rain, though The Wedding of the Painted Doll, Should I?, and Were you meant for me? were all written in 1929 and in the movie =p

1928 - Helen Kane's famous hit. (If it helps, she was known as the Boop-A-Doop Girl.) (1928) - I Wanna Be Loved By You

I have to say this is fun just for seeing the old songs, you have a good list here...

Oh, my word, Limerick! You cleaned house with the 1930s! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Limerick: 11
Belle: 7
Connie G.: 1
sing: 1

Though I love the participation, 'twould be much more fun if more people would get in on this. There are forty-seven hints that are scattered throughout the board as of now, and only twenty have been found. This means there are still twenty-seven hints (and counting) laying hidden somewhere, waiting to be found! Happy continued hunting! \:D/

Bing's. Bing Crosby is amazing. Along that line, if you want to hear a good song of his, he and the Andrews Sisters did a song in 1947 called "Pistol Packin' Mama." It's great.

The current score is:

Limerick: 11
Belle: 7
Kaida: 6
Connie G.: 1
sing: 1
Isaiah the Ox: 1
Woody: 1
TigerShadow: 1

THE CANDY MAN! I HATE THIS SONG WITH A PASSION.

It's not because I had to listen to it over and over and over and over again when we first opened our store or something...

I'm getting close to being done giving out hints. Thirty songs have already been discovered, but fifty-nine more are waiting to be guessed. I have eleven more hints to go. My post count is actually 1,999 with this post, so I will finish "A Musical Journey" on my 2,010th post.

Because I'm already feeling bad about the garbage I'm hinting at. I feel uncomfortable with secular music (with only a handful of exceptions) after 1965. Just think how much music has degraded from 2000 to 2016. O.o

Wretched!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: I can't believe that you're back! I never thought I would see you again. Not only did you reappear, you absolutely turned this game on its head. The current score is:

Wretched Sinner: 29
Limerick: 11
Belle: 8
Kaida: 6
Connie G.: 1
sing: 1
Isaiah the Ox: 1

I guess it's right that one old SS relic should win the game hosted by another. ;)
