7. Get him to the Greek. That's so weird, I was just listening to a bunch of songs on my phone, but I paused most recently on "Furry Walls" by Infant Sorrow haha.

I also have a bunch of songs from Music & Lyrics. Embarrassed that I like listening to fake band songs? Nahhhh :wink:

Music & Lyrics... that's the movie I couldn't remember. I knew PoP! sounded familiar.

I'm ashamed to say I only recognized the Be Sharps and Wyld Stallions. :doomed: Phish Tahko rings a bell though. :hrm: Where would I have seen that? Maybe South Park? :dunno:

Random aside: I recently listened to the Tenacious D cd, on a long drive without the kids, lol. I hadn't heard it in a long time because it's super raunchy but man it's so funny, though a bit long but even that is kind of funny. They just keep on rocking! They don't stop, even to breathe! :lol:

FYI, #11 isn't from Almost Famous. That's the movie with Billy Crudup and Kate Hudson (maybe they're one of the mystery groups). The Oneders were in the movie That Thing you Do, singing the song of the same name.

Now that you mentioned Yes Man, I know that's #10.

10. Munchausen By Proxy - Yes Man
Bonus? (The only song I could think of is the "not your late night booty call" one but something tells me that isn't the title) :lol:

Ok, I'm guessing The Folksmen are from that cool movie starring people I loved from SCTV, A Mighty Wind. I only saw it once a while ago...... :oops:

Yup, they're the same 3 guys that made up Spinal Tap: Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Christopher Guest.

Hiya Nonch :yawinkle: Hey I've remembered another good tv/movie band called The Commitments. Have you ever seen the movie? Their cover of the song Dark Side of the Street is sooo good. Lots of great tunes in that movie.

The Nerve is from an aussie tv show. I watched season 1 on the internet. I was totally hooked after one episode. The 2nd season just started a week or so ago. It's really great. A human/ghost romance, remind you of anything? Do you remember the Ghost & Mrs. Muir growing up? Kind of same premise but the male lead is a hard core rocker & she's a dentist. :couple:
