The music meme

December 10th, 2004 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

It’s the night of the Winter Formal, and I have another two hours before I go, probably.  So let’s try this out (courtesy of Jol):


Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play!
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play!
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from!
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly!


My taste in music is both quite eclectic and pretty pedestrian, so this should mostly be a shoo-in for people 🙂  I also suspect that many of these lines are going to contain the song titles, haha.  They’re all popular English songs I know most of the words to, and no acapella tracks.  It’s actually surprising how many non-English, instrumental or acappella tracks I had to skip over.  Here we go!


1) And even if it doesn’t sound like….  jazz
2) God only knows what I’d be without you…
3) So put your best dress on, and wrap yourself in the arms of someone…
4) And now Ella, Ella, and her fellers, are makin’ a wreck, oh what a wreck of Mack the Knife.
5) He made his home in that fish’s abdomen…
6) And every time I feel afraid, I hold tight onto my faith….
7) And they asked me if I would do a little number, and I sang with all my might…
8) There are corn fields and wheat fields enough to grow…

9) Tell me what it’s like to be a star on the rise, a breakfast-cereal prize.
10) You’re looking good in that Gucci bikini, thirty-eight carats, your ring lookin’ freezy
11)
Four o’clock in the morning, my mind is filled with a thousand thoughts of you.
12) I see friends shaking hands, saying “how do you do?”…
13) …till He appeared, and the soul felt its worth.
14) Questions of science, science and progress…
15) Feel good, real good, I don’t got no brain
16) I’ve waited all my life to cross this line…
17) Do my foolish alibis bore you?
18) Someone to sing to me, some little summer song…
19) You’re beautiful, you are, and you know it.
20) We’re talking two-way monologues, with words that rhyme.
21) When I look into your eyes, I see something that money can’t buy.
22) If you wanna party, just grab somebody…
23) Close your eyes now and rest, may these hours be blessed.
24) In that time I went and said goodbye, now I’m back and not ashamed to cry
25) ‘Cos every kiss is a kiss you can never get back…


Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve listened to my playlist in such a random fashion, ever since I started using real rhapsody.

    18)Bebel Gilberto – Summer Sumba (So Nice)
    22) Britney Spears & Madonna – Me Against The Music

    I came across this completely accidentally… I’ve been looking for a song for a while now and that just happens to be #1 on this list. I was hoping someone might’ve gotten it right already, but no such luck. I’m dying to know which song it is! If you could e-mail the song title to me or post it at my website, I’d be forever grateful.

    Just right points?I would be aware that as any person who in point of fact doesn’t write on blogs a lot (in fact, this can be my first submit), I don’t suppose the time period ‘lurker’ could be very changing into to a non-posting reader. It’s no longer your fault in the slightest degree , but most likely the blogosphere may just come up with a greater, non-creepy title for the ninety% people that enjoy studying the content .
