free stuff, and the rare "meme"

I have a very slow cdrom drive, and a moderately slow cd-rw drive. If you want one or the other or both, pipe up, particularly if you're willing to drop by and get them! No, I don't remember how slow.

On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty songs on the list, write down your favorite line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Then, have your friends comment and see if they can guess the songs. Some are obvious. Some, maybe only for a few people.

1. Sorry. stop. Cannot attend.. / I've flown away and taken all your money / Wish you were here to help me spend
2. Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true / There’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
3. Sometimes you're crazy, and you wonder why / I'm such a baby, yeah, the Dolphins make me cry
4. Throwing small shadows / I catch those that fall at my feet
5. If I could wear your clothes / I'd pretend I was you and lose control
6. Make love in the middle of a war zone / All of God's children / Never gonna die
7. Never stay too long in your bed / Never lose your heart, use your head
8. Then let me build a bridge for I cannot fill the chasm / And let me set the battlements on fire
9. And if the seas go boiling black / Can you tell me what you'll do about that
10. Clicks, clacks / Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs is alright for a while
11. He lit the fuse and ran for a mile / The space rocket went up in style
12. Will I take my rest? / Have I passed the test?
13. Under moonlight I stood wild and naked / Felt no shame just my spirit awakened
14. Ooh, but I watch him so sadly / How can I tell him I love him / Yes I would give my heart gladly
15. All I ask of you is one thing that you never do / Would you put your arms around me?
16. aaaauuuugggghhhh don't give me any more cigarettes!
17. My baby has a pet duck / And my baby is a heck of a Fffff-riend
18. How could she say to me / Love will find a way / Gather round all you clowns
19. Take a left, a sharp left and another left
20. Ain't no use in complainin' / When you got a job to do / Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in / And that's when I met you

Damn if lyrics websites are not the WORST popup offenders.

You know, you can download Mozilla and that will kill pop-ups.

my google toolbar kills them, and sometimes i also use mozilla, however i was just watching the little numbers incrementing on the toolbar thingy and being amazed.

3. I know the song (although I've forgotten the title) and can only say "Hootie".
7. Nobody's Side, Chess.
8. Fortress Around Your Heart, Sting.
20. Best Days Of My Life. (Or whatever it's called by Bryan Adams.)

Wow, someone else has the Chess soundtrack? I used to listen to that often, back when I was a senior!

okay, so i had to google #3 because i knew the line but couldn't remember what it was from, so i won't actually post it. but wow, no wonder i couldn't put a voice to the line -- i've heard the original, but it's something we always used to sing as a camp song. *snrrrk*

Ouch, I'm blanking on all except 15, which is 'Tomorrow', by Morrissey.

Hey, you're the only one that got that one right so far! Which is weird, I was sure I had more mopers on my friends list.

I can't believe I didn't catch the Beatles until the above comment pointed it out, but Hootie I knew like the back of my hand. Sad.

I wonder if a slow cd-rw drive could be jammed into my computer somehow. Because that would ROCK. But I don't even know if my slowass machine can handle it...

I KNEW I knew someone who needed a cd-rw. We can set Jack to the task sometime this weekend, perhaps.

OK, I said I would give it a shot. Not looking at other replies, and even harder, not using Google. :}

9 - Sounds familiar, in an 'I should know this' way. Same for 12 and 14.
18 - Beatles, 'Hide Your Love Away'
20 - Bryan Adams, "Summer of '69"!

I have definately had the "sounds familiar" problem with everyone else's playlists.

Beatles, Hootie, and Bryan Adams, apparently most easily recognized for my cohort.

2. Circle Game! yay!
7. Nobody's Side from Chess

I didn't do so well with those :)

I didn't mean to make it too hard! Maybe I do listen to a few things that are "obscure"... :)

darn, most of the ones i knew were already guessed! for the record, i also knew #8, #17, #20 and #7. well, sorta - i never know the titles of songs.

#19 is Badly Drawn Boy, but what song? i dunno.
#6 i which i cheated by looking up to confirm is Hunter's & Collectors' "river runs dry"
is #2 a Joni Mitchell song?
#16 is a Butchies song, i think

which one is the Monkees song? there has to be one somewhere. ;)

i <3 you for getting the butchies one...

no you don't even know!! treat me like i'm 7... stststs

badly drawn boy, once around the block. don't fall for the goofy remixes, only listen to the original.

#2 is a joni mitchell song, in this case as sung by tom rush.

and yes, there IS a monkees song! and a neil finn song, but nobody has stepped up to the plate on that one either. norabombay must be busy.

Ok, I cheated and looked at other comments first, but I would liek to proclaim, that I KNEW 2,3,7,8,18 (I couldn't place this one though!)and 20!

So...... Not yet identified:
9. Put down that weapon, or we'll all be gone... (I thought I was the only one who still had this stuff! LOL)
12. Depeche Mode - It is driving me NUTS! What the hell song is this? I can hear it in my head but can't get it! (I even started sampling the DM I've got on my computer but I don't have it here!)

This is harder than it would first seem!
