Since everyone seems to be into lists these days and I am also avoiding work I thought I would play along. I got this from one of the Cambodian couple's friends.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever music player you have on random.
Step 2: Post a line from the first 15 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 (ie: No Googling)

1. I believe in memories, the look so pretty when I sleep.
Yay Rach. Jack Johnson, Better Together

2. Ya the lips on you were plain, the better to a kiss sustain.

3. Bowing down to my addiction, never thought I'd go so willing.
Rach. Moist, Shotgun

4. I believe it's love that's hiding here, in the shadows and in the dark.
an anonymous poster, Granny by DMB (shame on you Rach)

5. Let's keep it moving, come on get funky.

6. Driving in on the highway all these cars end up on the sidewalk.
Marlito got this first via MSN, but Rach commented first. DMB, Ants Marching

7. There was crack on the corner and someone dead and fire coming out of a monkey's head.
Orth, sorta. Gorillaz (got the song wrong so i'll leave it out for now).

8. I'm closing in on closing up.

9. We were old familiar strangers.

10. I find a fatal flaw in the logic of love and go out of my head.
Orth. The Shins, Gone for Good. My nano says this is called A Call to Apathy, but apparently that was a tentative title. I stand corrected.

11. The silence offered warnings that he'd locked up deep inside.

12. Night falling on the city quite something to behold.
Rach on her second try. David Grey, Disappearing World

13. Either work hard or you might as well quit.
Finally, Rach. MC Hammer, Can't touch this. Marlito, I thought you'd have been all over this!

14. I lost the sense of it, the absolution that we never knew.
Rach again. Moist, Leave it alone

15. I'm bound by these choices that are so hard to make.

So I cheated just a little while making this. I figured it would by way too much about Rach if there were over 50% DMB songs on here (I've got the Central Park concert and a couple others on my nano right now...)so I skipped them. As it is it'll prolly be mostly about Rach anyway, she's a little nutty when it comes to song lyrics. So I'll post the answers and who guesses right. Prize for the person with the most correct answers? Why my love of course!!

Heh, this game is hard to play when you have a different song in your head. A lot of them I know the artist, but I don't know the song name. I will do my best. I could disapoint though. I will fill in what I can tonight and leave the rest for later when I have had time to sleep on it.

1. Jack Johnson, Better Together
2. --
3. Moist, Shotgun
4. DMB,
5. --
6. DMB, Ants Marching
7. --
8. --
9. DMB (I think. Some song off of Under the table and Dreaming, I think...why can't I think of it...I will, don't you worry)
10. --
11. DMB
12. David Grey, Babylon
13. --
14. Moist, Leave it alone
15. --

I think I tend to think that everything is DMB. On my iPod, I clump DMB, Jack Johsnon, David Grey, David Usher, and John Mayer all together so I find their lyrics all blend into Dave.

Damn, #12 is Disappearing World, David Grey

Should #9 not read "we find love is hiding there in the shadows in the darkness"??? if so then it is Granny by DMB

chelle said...

it is granny by dmb, but that must be a different version, this is the central park recording.

rach, i'm pretty disappointed in you for this one, how long was this your favorite song for?

Oh, Anonymous, how you shame me. I did have it as DMB but .... damn...I couldn't grab the next line.

I feel left out. I have a genetical predisposition (it has to be genetic) to not be able to translate the lyrics of songs. Thus, I wouldn't have a clue about any of these, despite the fact that I'm very familiar with many of them...

Oh well, I'll hum along in the background.

After almost a week of thinking constantly about #13, I have it figured out. After singing every Vanilla Ice, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys song that I knew the lyrics to, I figured it out.

13. MC Hammer, Can't touch this
