Song identification meme, stolen from ceph


"First, put your playlist on shuffle.
Second, post the first lines for the first 20 songs to come up (along with these instructions).
Third, have people guess the songs and artists in comments to the post.
Fourth, in a few days, post the answers. "

and i also generally followed the unofficial rules :)

"Some of these were a bit tricky to transcribe--on some I asked the Internet, on others I went with my own interpretation. "First line" is of course difficult to define, so I've been pretty arbitrary with some of these. For songs that start with nonsense syllables I have occasionally also included the first words."

Like ceph's all of mine are shared on my computer at work so guessing them probably won't be hard. And most of them are from a playlist i shared with everyone a couple weeks ago, making it doubly easy :)

1: Night falls, i'm alone

2: We were strangers, starting out on a journey

3: He was a boy, she was a girl, can i make it any more obvious?

4: There are those spend the night under bridges, over by the river

5: Lala lala lala lala i wrote her off for the tenth time today

6: I have looked all over the place

7: Hikisaita yami ga hoe furueru teito ni

8: Peek in sneak about

9: Deny me if you think you can

10: I wear a disguise, i'm just your average jane

11: I don't know whose side I'm taking

12: I would swallow my pride

13: I don't wanna say i'm sorry

14: In the air I'm tasting your perfection

15: Who is this irresistable creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?

16: Feel like I've been blown apart

17: isagiyoku kakkoyoku ikite-yukou

18: I could be an angel dressed in the devil's clothes

19: Kiss away my fear

20: When everything is going wrong

Bonus:

There were also a few i skipped cause they were _way_ too obvious or way too hard (unless you've heard the particular obscure song)

21: Insert coin

22: Waka Laka's a thing to play forever

23: To start press any key. Where's the any key?

24: Come to my window

25: One ring to rule them all

Donna Lewis and Richard Marx

Is not! It's Anastasia! And, um, that guy! *pouts*

:)

And you're right about #18, not surprisingly :)

I think I halfway-cheated because I know you got a number of these songs from me. ;)
DonAithnendonaithnen on March 7th, 2006 08:14 pm (UTC)
Well i got 10 and 18 from you, and 22 from pava. Most of the rest i got from CDs or have had them long enough that i don't remember where i got them from anymore.

2) I've heard it, and can go through the song in my head, but I don't know the actual name/artist
3) Skater Boy, Averil Lavigne
12) Inside Out, Eve 6

21: I'll guess "Pacman [Powerpill Original]" by Aphex Twin, though it could just as easily be "Pacman [Mickey Finns Yum Yum]". Or, you know, some totally different retro video game remix...

22: "Waka Laka" by Jenny Rom vs Zippers from DDR MAX2. Can i steal it from coraa based on more details? ;)

25: I presume self-titled, by "The Lord of the Rhymes".

I also knew 16, but coraa's got that one covered. I'm thinking there may be some Rush in there, but not positive. If I had melodies maybe I'd have a chance with the Japanese ones...
DonAithnendonaithnen on March 7th, 2006 01:45 am (UTC)
well the exact title of the mp3 is "happy hardcore - Pac Man (Techno Remix)" so i think you may know more than i do :) It's 4 minutes and 3 seconds long if that helps narrow it down any (doubtful.)

And same with Waka Laka, mine just says wakalaka.mp3, but if i'm to believe pava it's a rip right off of one of the DDR soundtracks so you're presumably correct.

The last one i can say with certainty however that you're right on ;)

The "Powerpill Original" mix is 4:03, so I guess it'd be that one. ^_^

Also way late...
2. .. Its from Anastasia.. "At the Beginning" ?
3. Avril Lavigne -=- Sk8er Boy
12. Eve 6 -=- Inside Out (Not sure about the artist ... its that "tie me to the bedpost" song :-p )
24 Melissa Ethridge -=- Come to my Window
25 ..lotr ?

(Of course, looking now, it looks like these were all already covered. Eh. Have some LJ spam.)

Re: Also way late...
Well obviously i think it's silly of people not to answer the meme just cause other people have done so first :) and i don't mind LJ spam at all :)
