Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first 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: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

I cut down on repeats and also omitted any songs that had the title in the first sentence (and also "The Laws Have Changed" because it was really close)

1) Your day breaks, your mind aches For No One - The Beatles clockworktomato
2) All those people that you know The Devil's Workday - Modest Mouse reverend_kindra
3) You get a shiver in the dark it's raining in the park
4) I don't want to be your friend, I just want to be your lover House of Cards - Radiohead clockworktomato
5) All the leaves are brown, and the sky is gray California Dreaming - The Mamas and the Papas tragicallyjulia
6) Is there anybody going to listen to my story? Girl - The Beatles jentwo
7) Can anybody fly this thing? High Speed - Coldplay clockworktomato
8) Is there room for both of us? Hail Hail - Pearl Jam jentwo
9) It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home Wait - The Beatles clockworktomato
10) We hold our breath 'till the morning comes and at last the sun shines through
11) I'm your only friend, I'm not your only friend Birdhouse In Your Soul - They Might Be Giants clockworktomato
12) Sleeping is giving in no matter what the time is Rebellion (Lies) - The Arcade Fire talltim
13) I've got my head, but my head is unraveling The Perfect Drug - NIN jentwo
14) Talk of circles, and punching out Pilate - Pearl Jam jentwo
15) Generals gathered in their masses War Pigs - Black Sabbath clockworktomato

Hm, is there animosity toward this song from you that I'm unaware of?

Oh, and it's a good song, but I don't mean to imply that I'm California dreaming, especially not now that spring has sprung. :)

(and I just mispelled California twice, so what to make of that I'm not sure.)

No animosity, just not familiar with it enough to even know its title! How sad is that?

Cleaning up!

It's a 1GB player, and I have Revolver, Rubber Soul and Magical Mystery Tour on there now, so I wasn't surprised when they kept coming up. And I got plenty that I couldn't use, 'cause when a song starts with "He's a real nowhere man," or "Say the Word"...it's not that tough to guess!

Oh, and since you're here, I keep thinking of you as someone who would catch the reference in this comic: http://dresdencodak.com/cartoons/dc_052.html

"You can't hear them singing 'cause they've all gone away." :D

And yeah, I suppose if you've got a gig to fill, filling it with PJ and Beatles isn't a bad place to start. :D

I'm embarassed to admit that I spent a good two hours going "Who is that?! I know that band!" and not noticing that the name of the album is the TITLE OF THE COMIC. But at least I figured it out before I heard it on my mp3 player.

Somewhat surprisingly, I only have No Code and the Given to Fly single on there now. I'm not in too much a PJ mood yet, despite shows coming in less than a month! I am on quite the Beatles kick, though, which is very rewarding. :) Have you heard anything from Purple Chick?

I'm also embarrassed that I forgot how to spell embarrassed.

#2 - The Devil's Workday; Modest Mouse!

I've had that cd playing in my car non-stop for a week now. Sometimes I just get in the mood for some mad horns.
