meme time - song lyrics
OK, so I've seen this a few places now with some variations. Basically you're supposed to listen to music on random, and then post the first line or so of the lyrics to each song - and people have to name the title and artist. As they do, you cross them off. OK, it is kind of interesting, so here's my list. I decided to go with 25 - some are completely obvious:

1. I lost my heart, Under the bridge stophittinyrslf got it.
2. Last night I had the strangest dream, Saw everybody running in the streets mazianni got it.
3. Don't move, don't talk out of time, don't think, don't worry, everything is just fine finstergrrrl got it.
4. Enter a new dimension, Can't you feel the tension?
5. These old songs, these old stories, I tell them, what do they mean?
6. Hello me, meet the real me blackcoat got it.
7. Master Shaman, I have come with my dolly from the shadow side
8. Waiting for the winds of change to sweep the clouds away
9. You wonder why you got holes in your shoes, you wonder why they got more money than you
10. This is your last chance, after this there is no turning back
11. Esa Mujer me esta matando, Me a espinado el corazon
12. I wish to wish, I dream to dream, I try to try, and I live to live lalaithpigeon got it.
13. The light in the window is a crack in the sky osmium_ocelot got it.
14. Shut up. I'm so sick of them deadlines. I cannot stand why them maniacs are in them headlines.
15. You think your head's achin? I'm not finished yet
16. Kindness in your eyes, I guess you heard me cry lizzielizzie got it. (And if anyone was going to, I figured she would.)
17. Ever since Chicken Little said, the sky was falling down upon his head
18. I heard you crying loud, all the way across town blackcoat got it.
19. All the things she said, all the things she said, running through my head, running through my head blackcoat got it.
20. Climbing over mountains, floating out on the sea
21. Love Is Like a Cigarette
22. New York City soothing my itchy itchy month of May
23. Cutting pictures from a magazine, paper smile but not from you to me
24. You are subtle as a window pane, standing in my view buddhagrrl got the artist... and finstergrrrl got it.
25. Coffee! How come I can't get a decent cup of coffee anywhere?

Leave your answers in comments.

10 down, 15 to go.

I did cheat a bit:
- iTunes kept playing instrumentals! So I skipped those.
- iTunes also kept playing Japanese tracks. Uh... no, I can't transcribe those. (Yeah, I managed the Spanish somewhat and used Google to correct it.)
- I decided to make it interesting by skipping any tracks when I already had that artist in the list. I had a couple of dupes - even the same song once! (I have multiples of some songs.)

16. !!! "Jesus to a Child", George Michael. Now...WTF are you doing listening to a somewhat obscure George ichael song!!! Not that I'm not pleased, mind you. :-D
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: April 27th, 2006 05:37 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
I've always liked George Michael, I have 'Listen Without Prejudice' amd 'Older' in my iPod. I haven't picked up 'Patience' yet.

I'm multifaceted. ;-)

My world view has turned upside down. Hee!!

Oh c'mon, with all the chick-singers I listen to, George Michael fits right in. ;-)


Actually, back in college, in one of my 'woe for I am full of angst' I wrote a girl a letter in which I disected one of his songs and related the lyrics to myself... But it has been so long I honestly don't remember which song or anything from the letter. I'm pretty sure it was "Freedom '90" and I was talking about how I was trying to change who I was and kept feeling pressured to be the 'old me', yada yada. :-)

... hmm, I just realized I don't have 'Faith', and then I remembered that I own that on *cassette*, so I didn't rip it.
lizzielizzie From: lizzielizzie Date: April 27th, 2006 01:43 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
I have it ripped, if you want it. :-)

6 - Sweating Bullets - Megadeath
18 - Green Day - When I come around - Dookie
19 - All the things she said - T.a.T.u - 200Km/h in the wrong lane (much better in russian)
..also, you might want to change your 'listening to' music...
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: April 27th, 2006 07:30 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Yes on all three - and my listening to is actually a red herring, that's *not* #25. :-)

24. Ani DiFranco.... damn if I know the name of that song though.

...and you wait for it to rain so that I can see you. You call me up at night when there's no light passing through and you think that I don't understand ... but I do.

It's probably something obvious like "window pane" but I don't know.
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: April 27th, 2006 07:32 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
The song is Anticipate

#4 is obviously Rod Serling, Twilight Love Song.
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: April 27th, 2006 07:33 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Good guess!

But no. ;-)
