Music memes….

…..are perfect for dark autumn evenings!


Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or a few ;)) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Italicise the lyrics and post the details when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing — looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own


1. Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

2. Go, go, go,
It’s time to make a move and we both know,
It’s time to step it up a notch,
I’m ready to lose touch,
Baby boy,
Go, go, go.

3. I can’t light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I’m growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

4. You’re my love, you’re my sweetest thing,
Don’t shy away, don’t shy away

5. Do I look like a liar?
Do I look like a liar to you?
Fighting crime in this town brings a girl down
Makes a body sink so low

6. Gray light, new day leaks through the window
An old soul song comes on the alarm clock radio
We walk the forty blocks to the middle
Of the place we heard that everything would be

7. I said, “I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something
Wild and unruly”

8. Try not to get worried,
Try not to turn onto,
Problems that upset you, oh…

9. Woah, wait a minute – not so quick
You go from zero to ticked off and losing it
Could somebody please tell me what just happened then

10. Oh yeah.
All right.

Somebody’s Heine’ is crowdin’ my icebox
Somebody’s cold one is givin’ me chills
Guess I’ll just close my eyes

11. So long ago
Certain place
Certain time
You touched my hand
On the way
On the way down to Emmiline

12. Hit it
Nah, na na na nah, na na na nah, na na nah, na na nah, na na na nah

13. Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

14. I’m five years old, it’s getting cold, I’ve got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you, I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides, look now, the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

15. She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge,
she studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s College,
that’s where I,
caught her eye.

16. Standing at the back door she tried to make it fast
One tear hit the hard wood it fell like broken glass
She said, “Sometimes love slips away
And you just can’t get it back, let’s face it”

17. I plant the kind of kiss
That wouldn’t wake a baby
On the self same face
The lie wouldn’t let me sleep

18. It’s like you’re a drug
It’s like you’re a demon I can’t face down
It’s like I’m stuck
It’s like I’m running from you all the time

19. And the problem is this
We were bought with a kiss
But the cheek still turned
Even when it wasn’t hit

20. Where can a sick man go
When he can’t choke down the medicine,
The old Doc knows.

21. Baby
why you not home yet
baby its getting late
i wish you would be home by now.

22. I was always strong as long as we were a team
I crawled into somebody’s heart who meant the world to me
love made me strong enough to be alone and set me free
but with my friends friends till the end is where I wanna be

23. Rise in the morning at sunrise
Strangers around me sleep soundly at rest
Phones and computers become me
Signals stretch back to the lands that I’ve left

24. Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don’t forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

25. Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a slow torch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

26. I’ll be sitting on the left side
You’ll be sitting on the right
Dying to share our problems
Make everything alright

27. Yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah

Usually I don’t do this but ok…

Ok I see you checking me out (checking me out)
I think I know what you winkin’ about (winking about)

28. It might have been a while
Since you’ve been loved
Like you should be loved

It might have been a while
Since you’ve been kissed
Like you should be kissed

29. I’ve been cheated by you
Since I don’t know when
So I’ve made up my mind
It must come to an end

30. What have we done with innocence
It disappeared with time, it never made much sense
Adolescent resident
Wasting another night on planning my revenge

Good luck my lovelies! A real mish mash here! πŸ™‚
