Snatched from sivi_volk:

The rules:
Step 1: Put your Winamp or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
NB - skip if you can't find the lyrics for it.
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses the titles and artists correctly and list the answer with the username of the person who guessed it at the end of the lyric.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is cheating.


Disclaimer: There's some lyrics here in languages I don't understand or suck at, so the lyrics I copied from the net might include some mistakes. If so, my apologies.

#4 is Muse with Endlessly, isn't it? *grins*

#22 Hmm, Radiohead? If I can only remember the name of the song, lol! Something with surprises, I think...

Heeey, Luvster! Haven't heard from you in ages. What have you been up to? :D

And yes, it is indeed. *grins*
No Surprises. :)

I am guessing #50, but I have no idea which one it is. :|
v_veronika
Aug. 24th, 2008 09:20 pm (UTC)
That might be because you're guessing wrong to begin with. You're about 30 numbers off. :P

Though honestly, I wouldn't recognise the song by these opening lyrics either...

...Holy shit, then I have no idea. No way I can guess this without cheating. ):

Haha, it doesn't help that I very rarely remember the title of songs, too. XD;;

Aug. 24th, 2008 05:33 pm (UTC)
Absolutely. :) I didn't think you'd have them on your playlist. ;)
v_veronika
Aug. 24th, 2008 09:20 pm (UTC)
I was kind of surprised to see them there too, actually. XD
v_veronika
Aug. 24th, 2008 09:23 am (UTC)
Oh, but Coup de Boule is 41, not 18, you mixed up the numbers a bit. :)

Of course you're right. >_>

Right you are. I'd make a joke about the lyrics totally not giving the title away, but since four people got here before you and no one guessed the song... ;)
