Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 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 through when someone gets them right
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.

I love this meme. I might have to do it again, too.

And I love that I know your songs. :)

#1, I know the artist, can't think of the song...
#4, 12, 18, and 24 I knew but they're already guessed (though "all along the watchtower" is originally a Dylan song--but the "some kind of way" (instead of just "some way") I think marks it as Hendrix)

#6, Jump, Van Halen
#7, Waiting on a Friend, the Rolling Stones
#8 I think is Peter Frampton, Show me the Way
#9 is the Who, Bargain
#22 is Stop Draggin' my heart around, Stevie Nicks (& Tom Petty?)

Okay--I actually think I know more, but I want to leave some for the others. So far, I think you have the most compatible music taste with me of any of my blogfriends. :)

19. Fallen - Sarah McLachlan

Oooh, #14 is Fleetwood Mac - Thunder Only Happens When Its Raining?? I have to confess that I have no idea what the title is but I can sing almost all the lyrics! Drat!

(Seriously, this is like the first one of the songs I've known on ANY of these meme posts!)
