Another Meme!  
No one did my last one, though, so I don't have any high hopes.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from 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 (No lyric hunting! That is cheating!)

Ganked from amaronith.

I cut out the ones that weren't English, at least, but that was more because I couldn't find the lyrics to them all.

1.) "I am not afraid to show you who I am..."
2.) "They've managed to get rid of me, return me to the grave..."
3.) "I was born on the side of a town ripped in two..."
4.) "Broadway is dark tonight, little bit weaker than it used to be..."
5.) "If I need today to know where to go then I can say..."
6.) "They've told me that the wiring was somehow all conspiring to screwing up the signals in my brain..."
7.) "I remember every little thing as if happened only yesterday..."
8.) "Every night I grab some money and I go down to the bar..."
9.) "Maybe it's intuition, but some things you just don't question"
10.) "I heard you on the wireless back in '52..."
11.) "I want my money back, I want my money back..."
12.) "I've been trying for hours just to think of what exactly to say"
13.) "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together..."
14.) "And I never really sleep anymore, and I always get those dangerous dreams..."
15.) "Everyday of my life they say the same old thing..."
16.) "When I was nine I learned survival, taught myself not to care..."
17.) "The skies were pure and the fields were green, the sun was brighter than it's ever been..."
18.) "Its getting cold, its getting dark, the nights are longer every day..."
19.) "I'll go blind before I stop..."
20.) "Carry on my wayward son, for there'll be peace when you are done..."

People who guess all of these will notice a REALLY BORING trend.

4) GGD, Broadway
7) Paradise by the Dashboard Lights
9) I knew I loved you before I met you, SG and for some reason I thought you hated this song.
10) Video Killed the Radio Star, though I can never remember who the hell does this
11) Life is a lemon, Meat
17) Objects in the rearview mirror
20) Do I even need to prove I know this one?

you think you're bad? To try mine you need to know the 1980s. I have no clue about yours though, except a lot of them are probably broadway musical songs, because you seem to like those.

The only one I can identify has already been guessed.

No one does these when I post them, either. :-p

A Guy Named Goo: Life on Mars Sam and Annie :D by oblivioaguynamedgoo on October 22nd, 2007 02:45 am (UTC)
Thanks. ^_^ Trying to spread the love of Life on Mars. It deserves it, especially before the terrible remake comes out.

God NO! Tell me there's not an American version in production! Oh, the humanity!

Premieres this winter as a mid-season replacement on ABC. Directed by David E. Kelley. Don't look up the casting, whatever you do.

I won't, either. This reinforces my opinion that staying informed is bad for your health. In fact, I think I'll try to pretend you never told me. And my life will be the better.

13 is 'I am the walrus." By the Beatles.

3. I think this is from Hedwig and the Angry Inch (the prelude to "All Sewn Up?").
