Songs and Lyrics Game

OK, since I did this on Facebook, and it took a while to do, I might as well use it here too for my Vox peeps if they feel like it.

Edit:  You guys are good!!  I've starred what has been guessed.

Step 1: Put your iTunes or Windows Media Player or whatever on random.

Step 2: Post the 1st line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter
how embarrassing the song. And it doesn't have to be perfect if you
can't understand the lyrics word for word.

Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.

Step 4: Star (*) the songs when someone guesses correctly.

Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

Step 6: Tag 10 friends. They have to do the same thing.

OK, I cheated a little so you didn't have to guess classical music and
so half the songs wouldn't be Coldplay. My iPod loves Coldplay as much
as me apparently.

*1. Unos, dos, tres, catorce. Turn it up loud, captain.

*2. When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand.

*3. Maybe, Oh if I could pray and I try, dear. You might come back home, home to me.

*4. Because the world is round it turns me on.

*5. Sunday morning, I heard the preacher sing, thou shall not kill. I
don't wanna hear nothin' else about killing, that it's God's will.

6. On a Monday, I was arrested, Uh huh. On a Tuesday, they locked me up in jail.

7. This sun has left and forgotten me. It's dark, I cannot see.

8. From behind these walls, I hear your song.

9. Who's that girl, she must be nearly freezing.

*10. You cut me down a tree and brought it back to me and that's what made me see where I was going wrong.

11. You can never know what it's like. Your blood like winter freezes just like ice.

*12. Joan was quizzical, studied metaphysical science in the home.

13. She doesn't care whether or not he's an island. She doesn't care just as long as his ship's coming in.

*14. Buddy, you're a boy, make a big noise, playing in the street, gonna be a big man someday.

*15. Love. I get so lost, sometimes. Days pass, and this emptiness fills my heart.

*16. Slow down, you move to fast, you got to make the morning last.

*17. For you, there'll be no cryin'. For you, the sun will be shining cause I feel that when I'm with you, it's alright.

18. Set me free, why don't you babe. Get out my life why don't you babe.

*19. Doctor have come from distant cities just to see me. Stand over my bed, disbelieving what they're seeing.

20. I wanna change your mind. I wanna celebrate this time of looking through you.

21. I thought about leaving but I couldn't even get out of bed. I'm hangin cause I couldn't get a ride out of town.

*22. Can't anybody find me somebody to love.

*23. I'm fifteen for a moment, caught in between 10 and 20, and I'm just dreaming, counting the ways to where you are.

24. If you're listening. Wo-oh-oh. Sing it back. Wo-oh-oh.

*25. God? … Life is a mystery. Everyone must stand alone. I hear you call my name, and it feels like home.

    15 = In Your Eyes, Peter Gabriel
    17 = Songbird, Eva Cassidy
    23 = 100 Years, Five For Fighting

  2. 2. Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel)4. Because (The Beatles)10. Swallowed in the Sea (Coldplay)16. Feelin' Groovy (Simon and Garfunkel)22. Somebody to Love (Queen)I love these, but I'm terrible with song names!! Also, I'm fairly certain #24 is Coldplay, but I can't remember…

  3. #1 Vertigo by U2#3 Maybe by Janis Joplin#5 … I think is.. I Hope by the Dixie Chicks#10 Swallowed in the Sea by Coldplay#15 (my favorite song ever) In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel#19 Wonder by Natalie Merchant

    this is harder then it seems.

  4. You got it! It is hard. The ones I've had to guess on in Facebook, I've only gotten one or two songs, even though they were almost all songs I know.I love In Your Eyes too. #10 – Swallowed in the Sea was our first dance song at our wedding. It's cool that it came up in the shuffle.

  5. Wow, no one got #18?
    18. Set me free, why don't you babe. Get out my life why don't you babe.
    That's, I guess The Supremes or Diana Ross, isn't it? Or else Kim Wilde, Keep Me Hanging On (not sure of the title actually.)
    Is #9 Who's that girl? by Eurythmics, or else probably the one by Madonna. Is that the name of the Madonna song from the movie of the same name? I forget now!!
    heh…I think if I did this no one would ever guess half of them!
