Probably because I don't have anywhere near enough readers to support something like this, but I'm going to do it anyway. So this is your chance, all you lurkers out there -- I wanna hear from you! If you haven't heard about the music lyrics meme, here's a simple summary of the rules:
Step 1: Put your iPod/MP3 player or iTunes on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (I took out any instrumental songs, natch, as well as any song where the title is uttered in the first line, so it's not entirely the first 20 songs that came up.)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from. Those guessing the songs should post in the comments or shoot me an e-mail.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly and post the title in bold after the stricken song when it is guessed.
Step 5: (for those guessing the songs) If you look up the lyrics on Google or any other search engine, that's called cheating, so don't do it!
So here are the songs --
Song #2: Somehow I let it slip / My hands were tired / Please turn the car around / I just saw home
Song #5: Naivete and childhood left behind deprived of the goodness of mankind
Song #7: Sitting here and feeling lonely / Had my blue eyes for you only
Song #8: Hey boy - did you find out / What you had to know and what it's all about
Song #12: This is your voice of reason / This is your voice of calm
Song #13: We lead two different lives / Just like two lines that never cross
Song #16: You're gonna say you miss me / You're gonna say you'll kiss me
Song #19: Don't you know / So many things, they come and go
Song #20: Who would've believed / That you and me would fall and land together
Some of these are easy, some not so much. Have fun! I'll post the answers probably mid-week next week.
