I was going to make a post about something else in between 100 thingsing, but my second-favorite meme came up on my friendslist again (thank you [ profile] burningqueen ♥), and I could not resist. So have a meme instead! c:

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines of the first thirty songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Ask hapless LJ denizens to guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration.

1. 'Cause it's you, you and me forever
2. Rain glistening / on the silver birch / like my lady's tears
3. He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles
4. Before I was born late one night
5. If the fish swam out of the ocean
6. Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk? | They're Coming To Take Me Away - Neuroticfish ([ profile] mireia_antonina)
7. When love is love don't let it go away
8. I've got a crush, coffee shop clerk
9. On the day I went away, "goodbye" was all I had to say
10. Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet?
11. Holding you close, undisturbed before a fire
12. I must be the devil's daughter
13. No one can deny that these are difficult times
14. Istanbul was Constantinople | Istanbul (Not Constantinople) - They Might Be Giants ([ profile] mireia_antonina)
15. Looking for a letter, trace it in the sand
16. Roaming in between the world of sleep and awake | Living Inside the Shell - Steve Conte ([ profile] kazekageshad)
17. She lowered her head when they laid all the blame
18. Come on now, can we talk about it like we used to talk about
19. Try to see it my way | We Can Work It Out - The Beatles ([ profile] burningqueen)
20. I'm Eleanor Rigby, I pick up the rice in a church where the weddings have been
21. Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind | Auld Lang Syne - Barenaked Ladies ([ profile] burningqueen)
22. In the state of Mississippi, many years ago
23. I built my house of straw
24. I've got my house surrounded
25. Desmond don't you worry 'bout those flashes in your head
26. I just got home, finally I'm alone
27. Shinjite damasarete, kanashii me ni atta | I Won't Say (I'm In Love) (Japanese) - Hercules ([ profile] margerydaw_s2)
28. Kick me while I'm down - why don't you?
29. Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee | The Ballad of Davy Crockett - Davy Crockett ([ profile] phantomcranefly)
30. Imagine you could tear the world apart

(I had to skip one because it was in Hebrew and I didn't know the title or artist. ._.;;)

Guess 'em! :D

20- The Beatles

20: Technically, no! Also, you need the song title. :P

I am amazed and impressed that you knew 27! And I'd say the rule about musicals applies here too, so I'll give it to you. :D

about 20: i'm an idiot.

I just really love Meg and Japanese songs.

It's okay man. :P

Well, I do not blame you! Those are two great tastes that go great together. :D

Heck yes! If I'm still awake by the time you finish I will be all over it. :D

Also, love your icon.

14. It's not, but this reminds me of that little rhyme "Istanbul is Constantinople now, Istanbul is Constantinople now."
19. We Can Work It Out -- The Beatles
20. It's like Eleanor Rigby but it's not. I don't actually know what it is, but it's in the first person.
21. Auld Lang Syne (if that's how you spell it.)

14 might be the same thing, depending on what you're thinking of. :P

I'd give you 20 if it were a cover that used the same words, but as it is, I can't. @_@ But yes, it is a cover of Eleanor Rigby. Is my point.

The others are correct! I knew you would get the Beatles song. Now get the Phil Ochs one. :P

6. "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haa!" by Napoleon XIV

14. ..."Istanbul" by They Might Be Giants?

From: [identity profile]
Both correct! Although 6 is actually the Neuroticfish cover. :D

6. They are Coming to Take Me Away by Neurotic Fish
14. Istanbul by TMBG
16. Living Inside the Shell Steve Conte
20. Eleanor Rigby by beetles (or David Cook cover)

Errr, dat's all I know w/o cheating ^__^

All correct except 20, which I would give to you except that this is a specific cover with different lyrics. (Also, don't let [ profile] burningqueen catch you spelling it "The Beetles". :P)

From: [identity profile]
Whatever, they are the ones spelling beetles wrong :P David Cooke covered it with those same lyrics which is the only reason why I knew it in the first place.

No man, I just checked, the David Cook cover uses the original lyrics. These lyrics are different first-person ones.

... I feel like I should know 8 especially, but it's not coming to me. None of them are, actually. orz

That said, stealing this~

I'm guessing you do know 8, since you had another song by the same artist in your meme. :B One of the ones I guessed, if that helps. c:

Tried to post yesterday, but LJ was having issues.

20 I think is Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles? Never mind, didn't read comments above mine.

And 29 is the Davy Crockett song, but I don't know who wrote it.

Man, I'll give you 29. I don't know who wrote it either. :P
