I am not really one for memes, but I like this one. I stole it from Paul.
Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 20 songs that play. [Or any line, as I did]
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.
Yeah, yeah, we all know how to Google, but let’s not.
I’d give you all of Sydney Harbour (all that land, all that water)
For that one sweet promenade
I will come for you at night time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
I’ll go running along your street
Well, so 1,2,3, take my hand and come with me
because you look so fine
and I really wanna make you mine.
How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say?
Who gets to work and who gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same.
I’d bring her gold and frankincense and myrrh
She thought that I was making fun of her
She made me feel I was fourteen again
That’s why she thinks it’s cooler if we’d just stay friends
He’s drunk, he tastes
Like candy, he’s so beautiful
He’s so deep like dirty water
God, he’s awful
Woke up this morning,
from the strangest dream
I was in the biggest army,
The world has ever seen
I’ve got you under my skin where the rain can’t get in
But if the sweat pours out, just shout
I’ll try to swim and pull you out
You know, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve already been to Paris,
I already been to Rome
And what did I do but miss my home?
My baby don’t mess around
Because she loves me so
And this I know fo sho
Why canít I get just one kiss
Why canít I get just one kiss
Believe me thereíd be some things that I wouldnít miss
But I look at your pants and I need I need a kiss
My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching TV
Think of you with pipe and slippers
Think of her in bed
Laying there just watching telly
Then think of me instead
When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand
Strange and beautiful
Are the stars tonight
That dance around your head
In your eyes I see that perfect world
I hope that doesn’t sound too weird
So long ago, I don’t remember when
That’s when they say I lost my only friend
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
As I listened through the cemetery trees
Everything will be just like you remember
Today won’t look as bad as it seemed
And though love’s become a dying ember
It will burn brighter than you ever dreamed
Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what itís done so far
I’m an American, boys, and I’ve come a long way
I was born and bred in the USA
So listen up close, I’ve get something to say
Boys, I’m buying this round
He said, “Son, I’ve made a life out of readin’ people’s faces,
And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
And if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces.
For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice.”
