I think this is the second time i've done this meme (rather than the third) but oh well :)

From coraa:

1. Open your music collection and set the songs to shuffle/random.
2. Take the first 25 and write the first line or two from each. [In addition to skipping instrumentals for obvious reasons, I did skip things without English lyrics, and I only did one song per artist.]
3. Have people guess the songs.
4. Strike them out as people guess.



1: Oh baby you're young but that's okay, what's give or take 9 years anyways?
2: It's been awhile now that I've had this feeling, like something big is gonna hit me hard
3: I met you, before the fall of Romecoraa
4: I've got a friends and she's a beauty, I've got a friend and he's a cutie
5: If we burn our wings, flying too close to the sun
6: As poppies fired the nut-brown wheat, my love rode by with sun-stained feetcoraa
7: I pounced in the morning when the world was begun
8: I can see you, don't even know you, falling into the sheets at night
9: Wide eyed grinning in a darkened room, sipping cactus brandy from a china spooncoraa
10: Blood is rich, war is power, fight for the glory, live for the hour
11: I've been looking for a driver who is qualified
12: And I'd give up forever to touch youcoraa
13: When you feel all alone, and the world has turned its back on youcoraa
14: You can look but you can't touch, I don't think I like you muchjmpava
15: I'm missing your bed, I never sleep, Avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak
16: You called me last night, on the telephoneavani
17: Last week I left a note on Laura's desk, it said I love you signed anonymous friend
18: Uh huh. Well the world's in a great commotion, from the Lonely Mountain back to the Shire
19: You laugh so easily and i'm shivering, just hearing your breath
20: In days that have long passed, there lived a fair mahogany lass
21: I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touchjmpava
22: Saw your light on so I came to find you, saw you packing and I wondered why
23: My father makes counterfeit money, my mother makes synthetic gin
24: The waves keep on crashing on my for some reason
25: It seems so obvious, there's something up with uscoraa

bonus songs: (songs that were way too easy, especially if they had at least part of the title in the first lines)

a: Love to see you whip it, sure can treat you rightcoraa
b: It's amazing to me, I can't seem to say what I'm doing here
c: There we stand about to fly, peeking down over land parachute behind
d: I was free when we met, you were eating a burritocoraa
e: Contra 30 guys, Contra 30 guys, Contra 30 guys, Enter in this code for 30 livescoraa

Edit: Since anyone who wanted to play has had almost 24 hours to jump in i guess i can start the strikeouts now. Currently coraa is crushing the competition, such as it is :)

14. Paranoid. Garbage, right? I think I should know others, but I'm bad at linking lyrics back to song titles... *shrug*
Pavajmpava on June 18th, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC)
21. Cake, Never There. Apparently Cora doesn't know that one.
Avaniavani on June 19th, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC)
16: New York City, TMBG
DonAithnendonaithnen on June 19th, 2008 08:10 pm (UTC)

Pava: AD_TeachersFightingjmpava on June 19th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
Hahaha. I KNEW I knew that one ;->

Whoops :->

Dude, missed this by being out of the country for a couple weeks, but I can still get a few: (4) is definitely a Freezepop song, I think the title is "hair-brained scheme". (18) Is "The Return of The King (Uh Huh)" by Tom Smith.

I also knew 16, but that's taken.
