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:
- I Got You Babe - Sonny and Cher
- Baby, It's Cold Outside - Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting
- Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On - Mel McDaniel
