Christophe Plays POP! Question 2 • Answers

So here are the answers and results for the ridiculously easy CPPOP! Question 2.

Song titles in picture form.

I wrought 10 visual interpretations of well-known song titles and gave you the year of each song’s release to boot.
All I asked for was the names of the 10 songs.

Here they come:

Blueberry Hill – Fats Domino

I Walk the Line – Johnny Cash

Substitute – The Who

Standing in the Shadows of Love – The Four Tops

(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay – Otis Redding

Candle in the Wind – Elton John

Moondance – Van Morrison

When Doves Cry – Prince

Push It – Salt’n’Pepa

Every Teardrop is a Waterfall – Coldplay

Sorry, loves, but Moon River and Boogie Nights – reasonable responses – were not released in 1977. As for Dancin’ in the Moonlight (It’s Caught Me in its Spotlight), it is not possible for the moon – pictured, dancing – to dance in its own light. It is technically dancing in the sunlight, from its perspective.
Yes, newcomers, that’s how we roll at CPPOP!

And if you’re wondering about the release date of Moondance, Wiki tells us: ‘Moondance is a popular song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and is the title song on his 1970 album Moondance. Morrison did not release the song as a single until November 1977, seven and a half years after the album was released.’ What a nutter.
