Start Me Up! - Debut Episode (re-post)

[Re-post] Time for a new contest at White Noise blog. Since music is such a huge part of my life, I assume it's a big part of yours too. So why not test your mettle against my other readers and take a stab at this new contest, which I dub 'Start Me Up!'

In the sound clip you will hear the first 3 seconds of 5 various songs. You just have to correctly guess the 5 songs. Artists too, if you know them. Put your answers in the comments. I will announce the winners of each episode of the contest.

There is no prize, unless you count personal pride. And as always, this is an exhibition, not a competition. Please..... no wagering.

[Update] If you know even a few of the songs, don't be shy about posting your guess. You might still win.

[Hints] People found this hard, so I will offer some hints. The first song is by a guy initials TP. The second song is by a band named after something you get for your birthday. The third song is by The Chamber Brothers. The fourth song is by a band named after royalty and the fifth song is by a elderly lady who still rocks like she was in her twenties.

These are pretty tough Karl!
Is one of them from "The Wall"?
"One Of My Turns" I believe.

Nope, and I know which one you're thinking is that song too. It's not Pink Floyd. Time for some hints I guess.

OK, I guess it's time to offer the solution: 1 - tom petty - a face in the crowd; cake - never there; chamber brothers - time has come today; queen - sweet lady; tina turner - i can't stand the rain.
