Lemming

From :

  1. Put your mp3 player on random.
  2. Post a line from the first 20 songs that play.
  3. Ask everyone to guess what song and artist the lines come from.
  4. Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
  5. No cheating.

I had to reformat my iPod recently, and haven’t “really” loaded it back up yet, so this is coming from a pretty limited selection of music.

  1. Smearing wet concrete and swearing you’ll never be caught – “Caffeine” by Faith No More ()
  2. A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me – “Oh! You Pretty Things” by David Bowie ()
  3. The Patty Duke the wrench and then I bust the tango
  4. A shallow pond slow descending so slow to drown – “Last Call” by Skinny Puppy ()
  5. They say it’s your birthday; We’re gonna have a good time – “Birthday” by The Beatles ()
  6. My brother wants a ride to the liquor store
  7. Just an inch between striking out and striking rich
  8. And a woman hot with worry slyly slipped a tin of stewing steak – “God Knows I’m Good” by David Bowie ()
  9. If the illusion is real; Let them give you a ride
  10. When they play tunes, when they play tunes, when they play riffs of the hard rock beat
  11. Strung out until ripped apart; Who dares, dares to condemn
  12. She’s sleepin’ with her head in the kitchen; And her feet’s out in the hall
  13. Wicked waits the torturer – “Inquisition” by Skinny Puppy ()
  14. Though the hunter in the night; Fills your childish heart with fright
  15. He-li venco -de-ho; Chi-le venco de-ho – “Warszawa” by David Bowie (Anonymous Commenter)
  16. Tell me wife I love her very much she knows – “Space Oddity” by David Bowie ()
  17. Dont u know straight hair aint got no curl (no curl)
  18. He’d like for her to roll and rock him; Turn his life around
  19. I’ve done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day
  20. You know you will have little time to stop and think; when engaging in hand-to-hand combat.

    1. Yeah… It’s real easy for me to just drag the “bowie” folder from my mp3 archive on to the iPod… It wouldn’t have been so lopsided before I reformatted my iPod.. :)

  1. i know 3 is the beastie boys, but i only know the lyrics from a mashup, so i don’t know the original track name

    and 17. is on the tip of my tongue… goddamn… i know that i know it.

      1. hahha… i should have realized that the ‘u’ was a clue. he always likes to do that with his songs. drives me up a fucking wall.

        (I cheated, obviously)
