Name That Tune: The Baby Shower Game

I have mixed feelings about baby shower games. I used to be vehemently against them, I thought a good shower was good food, good friends, and good conversations. But that was when I still lived far away from any family, my bridal and baby shower were just friends and we could just have a more casual time. Since then I've realized that a lot of showers include family and friends, who don't necessarily know one another. Games can be a great way to break the ice in situations like that. Also, who doesn't like to win a little prize?

Recently I needed a baby shower game for my sister-in-law. In search of something fun I came up with the idea for playing "Name That Tune" using songs with baby (or some similar word like babe) in the title.

There are two simple ways to play "Name That Tune" in a group setting. One is to play the song and when someone knows it they yell out the answer and get points, you then go onto the next song. The other way is to play a 15-20 second clip of each song and people write down their guesses. Since I didn't know how many people would be playing and some of the songs were pretty hard I opted for the second.

I used the list of songs from here, but I took out any my husband and I had never heard of. I downloaded and cut clips of all the songs, making some harder than others to figure out. Here are my 33 song clips.

I decided to award 1 point for the song title, and 2 for knowing the artist, so each song would be worth a total of 3 points. You can use my score card for your own game.

Of course if you are putting the game together you will need the answers. So here are the songs I used:

  1. I Got You Babe - Sonny and Cher
  2. Baby, It's Cold Outside - Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting 
  3. Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On - Mel McDaniel 
  4. You're Having my Baby - Paul Anka
  5. Santa Baby - Earth Kitt
  6. I Can't Get Enough of You Baby - Smash Mouth
  7. Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys
  8. There Goes My Baby - The Drifters
  9. Baby, I Need Your Lovin' - The Four Tops
  10. Be My Baby - The Ronettes 
  11. Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
  12. We're Having a Baby - Desi Arnaz 
  13. All She Wants (Is Another Baby) - Ace of Base
  14. Babe - The Styx
  15. Baby, Baby - Amy Grant
  16. Baby Beluga - Raffi 
  17. Baby Girl - Sugarland
  18. Baby - Justin Bieber
  19. Baby Love - Diana Ross and the Supremes
  20. Baby, Now That I've Found You - 
  21. Baby, I Love Your Way - Big Mountain
  22. Born to Be My Baby - Bon Jovi
  23. ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears 
  24. Runaway Baby - Bruno Mars
  25. Come On Over Baby - Christina Aguilera 
  26. American Baby - Dave Matthews Band
  27. Ain't That Lovin You Baby - Elvis Presley 
  28. Baby Elephant Walk - Henry Mancini 
  29. Baby Workout - Jackie Wilson
  30. Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey 
  31. My Baby Loves Me - Martina McBride
  32. Hey Baby - No Doubt
  33. Oh Me, Oh My Sweet Baby - George Strait 
Have fun playing this game!

Birthstone of the Month - July

My most favorite color in the world is red. It is so vibrant, it seems to scream passion at me. Not just passionate in the romantic way but also passionate about life. I just love it, which means I love July's birthstone, the Ruby.

Rubies are super durable, a 9 on the hardness scale for gems, the only stronger ones are diamonds and moissonite. Along with their strength they also have amazing color, red. To qualify as a Ruby they have to meet a min of red saturation, otherwise they are classified as pink sapphires.

Because Rubies are so tough and durable they are easy to take care of. You can clean them with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. 

What is your favorite color? Do you own jewelry in that color?
