Music Shuffle Name-That-Song Meme!

I need to do something. So I'm swiping a meme from brighteyed_jill.

The rules are as follows:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. Skip the instrumental-only pieces (non-English too if you want).
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and title correctly. (If it's a cover, the original artist is okay, and vice-versa.)
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like this game, post your own!

Well, this is the shuffle I use when I work out in the mornings, and most of the stuff on here is fairly fast (with a few exceptions). Besides, my last rotation included the entirty of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog AND Commentary! The Musical as well as selections from Wicked. But now I'm in this rotation. You know how it goes.

And you damn well have better gotten the Iris song, seeing as you introduced that tune to me in the first place! :D

Can you blame me for getting Nickleback songs mixed up? They all sound... uh... quite similar.
May. 27th, 2010 04:28 pm (UTC)
About as much as I can blame you for knowing it's Nickleback. I'm pretty embarrassed that I knew that one. xD
May. 27th, 2010 04:51 pm (UTC)
Hurray for you for being able to identify So Pure! I love that song, and I swear that was the most underappreaciated awesome song on that album. Love it.

And both of you keep your keyboards of my Nickleback! I like Nickleback! This is no shame in liking the popular songs!

4 = Who's Watching Me?, Rockwell
6 = Crazy, Seal

...annnd those are the only two I recognise that haven't already been guessed lol!
May. 27th, 2010 07:26 pm (UTC)
Correct! Though I am listening to covers of those two, specifically the Mysto & Pizzi one for Somebody's Watching Me (the one from the Geico commercial) and Alanis Morissette's version of Crazy. It's really lovely, that one. Have you heard her accoustic cover of the Police's King of Pain? Wonderful.
