Music Play List Meme (Borrowed, Once Again, From Lara)

Yeah, I'm kinda bored, so play along...

Step 1: Get your play list together, put it on random, and play.

Step 2: Write down the first line (or close to it--I'll put a little star next to the ones that I don't use the first line from) from the first 20 songs that play.

Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from. No search engines, please.

Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly

So, if you'd like to play along, feel free to write the answers in a comment.

1. Woke up this morning, feeling fine! ("I'm Into Something Good" by Herman's Hermits--way to go Lesley!)

2. Looking through the winds blowing up the road...

3. Hey, time won't wait, life goes by, every day's a brand new sky

4. Color of the sky as far as I can see is cold gray

5. Did I ever tell you how you live in me?

6. I was lying awake last night, waiting for your call

7. All the waiters in your grand cafe leave their tables when you blink (Brian correctly guessed Billy Joel's "Don't Ask Me Why")

8. Here making each day of the year, changing my life with a wave of her hand... (Annette gets her first hit with "Here, There, And Everywhere" by the Beatles)

9. She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough...

10. I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone (Brian again with "Dust In the Wind" by Kansas)

11. Oh, why you look so sad? (Lara correctly guessed "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders)

12. I waited till I saw the sun... ("Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones--Lesley again!)

13. Open the door and come in, I'm so glad to see you, my friend (Lesley got "You're In Love" by Wilson Phillips!)

14. I've been where you are before, no one understands it more...

15. ...and just when I thought time had set me free, those thoughts of you keep taunting me.*** (Annette again with "Here I Am" by Air Supply)

16. There's a black man with a black cat living in a black neighborhood (Lara again with "Little Pink Houses" by John Mellencamp)

17. May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam (Rod Stewart's "Forever Young", guessed correctly by Brian)

18. I come home in the morning light...

19. Patching the roof and pitching the hay is not my idea of a perfect day (come on, Broadway fans!)

20. ...can't you see the sunshine, can't you just feel the moonshine? *** (Lara with James Taylor's "Carolina In My Mind")

6 pearl(s) of wisdom:

Lara said...

11. I'll stand by you - the Pretenders
16. Little Pink Houses - John Cougar Mellencamp
20. Carolina In My Mind, James Taylor

There are several more that I know I know, and maybe if it wasn't midnight I could remember them! :) I'll try again tomorrow!

1. I’m into something good (not sure who by, maybe The Monkees?)
12. Don’t Know Why – Norah Jones
13. You’re in Love – Wilson Phillips

I feel like I should know way more of these!

The Concordian said...

Oh boy, okay:

7. Don't Ask Me Why - Billy Joel
10. Dust In The Wind - Kansas
17. Forever Young - Rod Steward (I had to fight for that one, and I'm moderately embarrassed that I remember it)
19. Sounds like something from Oklahoma!

Lara said...

OK, kicking myself for a few that others got that I should have! And there's still a couple I know I should know...

#8 is "Here, There, & Everywhere" by the Beatles!

nettiemac said...

OOOOH! And #15(?) is from "Here I Am" by Air Supply. I can't believe I actually recognized that......
