Music meme

Via Made of Meat

Step 1: Put your MP3 player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) of the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: NO CHEATING on your guesses (don't use the google)

  1. it's been a hard day's night and i've been working like a dog
  2. take me on a trip. take me from the hip. keep me cool and dry round the corner from the dip.
  3. so i wandered like Jesus, like an alien cure, searching for my disciples
  4. strange shapes light up the night. i've never seen them, though i hope i might
  5. oh the word's on the street that you've found someone new. if he looks nothing like me, i'm so happy for you.
  6. no need to be afraid when the light starts to afraid, when mind disintegrates
  7. Callas went away. She went away.
  8. baby, i'm so into you. you got that something, what can i do?
  9. sophistaphones, artistocats, distinguished dogs, clean up your act
  10. grey in grey, raindrop explode at blind windows
  11. all we want is a headrush. all we want is to get out of our skin for a while.
  12. and you can dance for inspiration. come on! i'm waiting!
  13. chemical halo burning bright in a sodium haze. all meaning is lost but this confusion remains.
  14. i was never any good at lovin' you. i was never any good at comin' through for you.
  15. immaculation in your eyes; depravity within your mind; a suffer from a devotional alliance
  16. war and slavery, exploitation - the common basis of the western nations
  17. you turn the screws, you tear down the bridge
  18. it's hard to find the balance when you are in love; it's hard to find the middle
  19. i see love; i can see passion. i feel danger, i feel obsession.
  20. the wintergreen, the juniper, the cornflower and the chicory, all of the words you said to me still vibrating in the the air

Hint: You all lucked out here with seven songs where the song title is in the first lines. That's practically unfair. And the iPod went on a kick of one particular band, so one artist appears three times. Also, I now realize that the lyrics to #15 make no sense whatsoever. That's what happens when you listen closely to songs you normally ignore.

1. Beatles, that one song. You know... Ah, I don't know the title.

19. Enigma, that one song? From that one album with Return to Innocence on it? Yeah, that one.

The rest are completely opaque.

I'll give you #19, which I didn't know the name of either (I love you, I'll kill you). But #1, I'm going to demand the actual title.

1) Beattles - Hard Day's Night?

17) Cake - You Turn the Screws?

lutheranchick said...

Ooh! Ooh!
12) Madonna - Into the Groove?

lutheranchick said...

13) Chem Lab - Chemical Halo?
I think that's the end of what I can come up with unless inspiration strikes.

I am disappointed that no one has figured out #8. I'm sure you would recognize it, although hopefully you don't own it.

Alan said...

I didn't know any of them except #1. I suspect #8 is some type of teenage pop song. I had to google #20 just to see the rest of the great lyrics. Now I'll probably have to buy the song as well.
