Song Lyrics Meme Sheepage

Via terriem, comes the meme:

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play.
Step 2: Pick your favourite lines from the first 25 songs that play (in my case, excluding parodies and Thundercats out-takes, oh yes).
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.

Update: as people seem to have run out of steam, I’ve added the answers to the ones no-one got.

  1. Though I have proven to be rather bad at this, here are my guesses:

    2. Black Velvet – can’t remember by who.
    3. Time after time, Cyndi Lauper
    5. Both sides now – Joni Mitchell (?)
    7. Romeo and Juliet – Dire Straits
    12. Come away with me – Norah Jones. (Had to get that one!)
    13. Making music to watch girls by – Andy Williams
    21. Bridge over Troubled water – Simon and Garfunkel
    22(?). Walk like an Egyptian – the Bangles (?)

    Not sure about some of them – will think on!


    1. All correct (although I think the “Making” in “Music to Watch Girls By” is not in the title)! Black Velvet is by Alannah Myles, but since I don’t remember artists I don’t think I should expect everyone else too.


        1. Some of them are album tracks which I’ve left in just to be evil. There are a couple (after the ones found by phlebas) I’d’ve thought we’re easy though. We shall see how everyone else does…


  2. 10. Laugh at the wonder of it all, laugh so loud you break your fall

    I had this circling in my head for a while before I could place it: “Indie, 1990s, not The Charlatans….”
    It’s “Sound” from James’s album Seven, and I haven’t heard that track in forever!

    16. is “There Goes God” by Crowded House (apprently, there he goes “in his sexy pants”).

    24. is that awful song “Wake me up inside” by Evanescence

    and I’m all out!
