Hint: The "X and Y and Z" format of the hints link to how the show name their episode... Also the series' title...

As previous posts have shown, I dedicate a disproportionate amount of brain power to this game. *sigh*. Speaking of which, let's see if I can make life a little harder...
Straw poll: If I instituted a variant rule eliminating Genre questions (in addition to the usual "no air dates / series length" and "trope-only" variants), would it make the game too difficult?
I think recognizing genres is a key point of the game. The reason we say "No air dates" is because we're not trying to build an encyclopedic knowledge of what aired when, we're trying to introduce a familiarity with anime as a whole.
True, true. Oh well, time to put the next stage of my (ill-conceived) plan into action!
But Wait, There's More!
So, without further ado...
Hint: Enough of Song 1, and you get Song 2.

Is song 2 Lost My Music? Which, of course, implies that Song 1 is God Knows.
Does Song 2 use Gratuitous English?
Is the anime for song 1 a mecha series?

Is song 2 "God Only Knows"? * Also assuming song 1 is God Knows.
That is the most recursive way to ask our longest Running Gag I've seen so far...
And if Song 1 is God Knows, then clearly Song 2 must be...
In other words, NO.

Is song 2 also from a Mecha series? Slice of Life series? Magical Girl series?
Are song 1 and song 2 connected on anyway?

Made a slight error in my previous post. Recheck for corrections.

I meant things like if they are from the same franchise or if they are animated by the same studio or if a seiyuu is part of both shows, or if they have similiarities on its plots, or stuff like that. In other words if they have something noticible in common and that doesn't require too much steps to connect one with the other.
Has the anime been used on this game before? Is it an adaptation? Is it part of a bigger franchise?
I just realized that it is a Tropes only round.

Is song 1 from the Gundam franchise? Is song 2 from the Gundam franchise?
Guys, remember that variant rules are in play. While I guess Genre questions are okay (on hindsight), asking for a particular series / franchise is probably a little too close. I'm going by Grain's rule of thumb here.
Also, please try to specify if you're referring to Song 1, Song 2, or both. Vague questions get vague answers.
