Guess These Songs And Win!

Posted by : foongpc | Saturday, July 4, 2009 | Published in


After watching and listening to that wonderful piano and cello performance of Love Story Meets Viva La Vida, I was inspired. I spent some time playing my piano again last night.

But guess what? I heard my niece played this nice little jazz piece and I thought, well, maybe I should try and play that! So here it is, a short jazzy piece called "Jay Walk" composed by Pam Wedgewood. Hope you like it, and please excuse my wrong notes! Only managed to practise it twice before I recorded it.

If for some reason, you are unable to listen to the song on this post, click here.

Since I recorded a few songs last night, I thought it's time again for my contest "Guess This Song And Win!" except now I'm inviting you to guess 2 songs. Guess one song correct and you win a RM10 Jusco voucher. Guess two songs correct and you win RM20 Jusco voucher.

So here's the first song. Name the title of this song and the original performer. I have played in a slightly different way from the original piece just for fun.

Guess This Song 3.wav -

Oh! I just realised Imeem edited my song! Why did they do that? It's not like I'm posting the original song here. It's my own performance! : (

From my over 4 minutes performance, they shortened it to....30 seconds?! To hear the full song, go here.

This is the second song. For this song, I didn't need Imeem to edit for me. I didn't finish playing this song as I have sort of forgotten how the chorus (middle part) sounds like and the chords that go along with it. Heck! I think even some parts of the melody are wrong. But I will try to listen to the original song again and figure it out, and maybe record a complete version next time.

Let's see if you know this song even though it's only half finished! Just name the song and the original artiste who sang it.

Guess This Song 4.wav -

Contest Rules
1. This contest is open to Malaysians and non Malaysians.
2. Non Malaysians who win the contest will be given Entrecard credits instead of Jusco vouchers. (You have to be an Entrecard member to receive EC credits)
3. The first person to correctly guess the name of the first song and the performer will win a RM10 Jusco voucher (or 100 EC credits).
4. The first person to correctly guess the name of the second song and the performer will win a RM10 Jusco voucher (or 100 EC credits).
5. You can give as many answers as you like, but only the final answer will be accepted.

Note: I just realised you can click on the 'Play Full Song Here' to listen to the full song! Silly me! Sorry Imeem!

For 1st song - This is a song composed and performed by a famous Korean pianist.
For 2nd song - The singer of this song released a No.1 hit in 2005 called "Bad Day" which was featured in American Idol show.

  54. foongpc said...

    brian kinney, you got the first song correct, but someone beaten you to it!

    The second song is not correct. It's not written and performed by A Korean but by an American. Read the clues! You still have a chance here : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:39 AM
  55. foongpc said...

    jam, thank you. Now I have revealed some clues, maybe you want to try again? : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:40 AM
  56. foongpc said...

    JL, that's funny. I have no problem in listening to the second song. Anyway we already have a winner for the first song. The song is "Kiss The Rain" by Korean composer and pianist, Yiruma.

    I have posted the clues so maybe you can try for the second song : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:43 AM
  57. foongpc said...

    kenwooi, hey I thought you would know the answer to the second song. Not an avid watcher of American Idol? Or you don't listen much to radio? : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:45 AM
  58. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, the clues are out. Maybe you can try again. The second song is an English song sung by American singer who have performed as a guest singer in American Idol before.

    July 7, 2009 at 1:53 AM
  59. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, if you listen to radio frequently, you should know the second song! Try again. It's sung by an American singer : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:54 AM
  60. foongpc said...

    eastcoastlife, haha! Ask your son to guess since I think he would have heard more up to date songs, right? : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:55 AM
  61. foongpc said...

    jonzz, thanks for the compliments! Don't want to try guessing? : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:56 AM
  62. foongpc said...

    tita beng, thanks! The clues are out - maybe you want to give it another shot! You can simply google it : )

    July 7, 2009 at 1:58 AM
  63. foongpc said...

    prometheus, haha! Nice try! No point copying cos even if you get the correct answers, you are not the first to provide them so still can't be the winner : )

    July 7, 2009 at 2:00 AM
  64. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, haha! You got the first answer correct but since you are not the first person, then I'm afraid you can't be the winner! But the clues are out - maybe you want to do some research and googling? Maybe you think that measly RM10 Jusco voucher is not worth your effort! Haha! If that's the case, I can't blame you! : )

    Oh, your neighbour's daughter plays the piano? That's good, I hope she doesn't wake you up with her playing in the early mornings : )

    July 7, 2009 at 2:06 AM
  65. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, OK. will drop by your blog and vote! : )

    July 7, 2009 at 2:06 AM
  66. foongpc said...

    medie007, you were here before anyone commented? Oh, you could have been my first commenter here!

    Anyway, what makes you think it's Japanese composer? The first song is by a Korean composer and the second is sung by an American singer who had a big hit in 2005.

    July 7, 2009 at 2:09 AM
  67. foongpc said...

    levian, I listen to the radio a lot too! Sometimes, I don't know the song and I use the TrackID in my handphone to find out the name of the song and the singer : )

    July 7, 2009 at 2:12 AM
  68. foongpc said...

    life ramblings, I guess if I were to play some Michael Jackson or Diana Ross' songs, you would be able to guess? : )

  77. foongpc said...

    phatelara, congratulations! You guessed correctly! Will be sending the Jusco voucher to you soon.

    Still haven't use the RM20 vouchers? Just go to any Jusco stores to use them! Buy anything at Jusco and present the coupons at the payment counter.

    Or if you don't want to use them, maybe offer these vouchers as prizes to your readers? : )
