Name that Tune

A mildly entertaining diversion.

Update: No need to guess. We had a winner six minutes in. The song is “Who are you?” (which is also the theme song to an American show, “CSI”) and the artist is the British rock band, “The Who”. Thanks for playing.

It’s cold here in Da ‘Burgh with a decent frosting of snow on the ground. On the way into work this morning, I heard this tune and, though I must have heard it hundreds of times before, only this morning did I pay any attention to the non-chorus lyrics. (What are those called, anyway? Stanzas?)

That got me thinking that this might make a pretty good “Name that Tune” candidate. Here is the line:

I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name

Post your guess for the song title and artist in the comments. Try to do it without “googling” it. If we go too long without a correct answer, I will post clues.

  1. whooooo are you? who who who who? I reallly want to know!

  2. I’m into something a little more cheerful…woke up this morning feelin’ fine, there’s something special on my mind…
    Herman’s Hermits…. Let me guess yours…I haven’t a clue.

    But gee, I wonder where you got the idea to do guessing games…just wait, I have a real good one for ya coming up if you thought Keanu Reeves was a difficult one!

    Hugs, Kathleen

  3. Six Minutes! I thought this was going to go all day.

    Hmmm… Don’t know, though. I guess I’ll give it to Javacat, since she obviously knows the song, but neglected to name the artist.

    “Who are you?” by The Who.

    I saw their first “Final Farewell” concert in Toronto in the late seventies when I was only this high. *cough*

    @ Kathleen: Hmmm, someone thinks they’re all that, huh? 🙂 Just ’cause you did a guessing game, doesn’t mean I got my idea from you. Nice try, though. 🙂 And I’m glad you have a perky tune in your head today. I like Herman’s Hermits.
