Music meme, back once more :)

I last did this meme a couple of years back and it was really fun (and musically geeky, which totes works for me!). The rules are:

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

Have at it, my lovelies!

1. As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago morn
A poor little baby child is born

In The Ghetto – well done, Siobhán!

2. Yeah I’ll tell you something,
I think you’ll understand,
When I say that something…

I Want To Hold Your Hand – The Beatles (guessed by Samantha!)

3.I wanna ask you
Do you ever sit and wonder,
It’s so strange
That we could be together for
So long, and never know, never care
What goes on in the other one’s head?

You Don’t Know Me – Ben Folds ft. Regina Spektor (WTG, Christy!)

4. Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they’re not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying

Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars (well done, Siobhán!)

5. When I look back upon my life
It’s always with a sense of shame
I’ve always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do

It’s A Sin – Pet Shop Boys (well done, Siobhán!)

6. It doesn’t matter if you love him or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
‘Cause you were born this way, baby

Born This Way – Lady Gaga (well done, Siobhán!)

7. I don’t get many things right the first time,
In fact I am told that a lot.
Now I know all the wrong turns and stumbles and falls,
Brought me here.

8. Good times, for a change
See the luck I’ve had, could make a good man turn bad

Please, please, please let me get what I want (well done, Siobhán!)

9. Snow can wait
I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose
Get my new boots on

10. I’d rather be liberated, I find myself captivated
Stop doing what you
Keep doing it to
I’d rather stay bold and lonely, I dream I’m your one and only

Mulder and Scully – Catatonia (well done, Siobhán!)

11. Uh huh make me tonight
Tonight, make it right
Uh huh make me tonight

Atomic – Blondie (well done, Siobhán!)

12. Baby when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside there was somethin’ going on

Islands in The Stream – Dolly Parton/ Kenny Rogers (guessed correctly by Accidental Londoner)

13. Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn’t forget you, and so I went and let you blow my mind

Hey Soul Sister – Train (well done, Accidental Londoner)

14. One, two, three and I come with the redneck style
Because you know I get paid by the mile, like Avis
I pave this, fast save this, everybody smile. . .
And act gracious

Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Fun Lovin’ Criminals (well done, Del!)

15. Follow through
Make your dreams come true
Don’t give up the fight
You will be alright
‘Cause there’s no one like you in the universe

16. Well, I shuffled through the city on the 4th of July
I had a firecracker waiting to blow
Breakin’ like a rocket who makin’ its way
To the cities of Mexico

Firecracker – Ryan Adams (well done, Siobhán!)

17. Where have all the good men gone,
And where are all the gods?

Holding Out For a Hero (a.k.a. I Need A Hero) – Bonnie Tyler (well done, Accidental Londoner)

18. This could be the very minute
I’m aware I’m alive
All these places feel like home
With a name I’d never chosen
I can make my first steps
As a child of 25

Chocolate – Snow Patrol (yay Kaz!)

19. Son of Henry, I’m the first in line,
To the throne, smell my mustard Gas,
I slashed swords through your wooden spine,
Well it touched my heart and it broke my hand.

20. She, she ain’t real,
She ain’t gonna be able to love you like I will,
She is a stranger,
You and I have history,
Or don’t you remember?

Rumour Has It – Adele (well done, Goldy!)

21. Lyin’ here with you so close to me
It’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile

22. I can sense it
Something important
Is about to happen
It’s coming up.
It takes courage to enjoy it

Big Time Sensuality – Bjork (well done, Siobhán!)

23. I still don’t know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
Every time I thought I’d got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet

Changes – David Bowie (well done, Del!)

24. It’s crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girl’s teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

25. Don’t you know, so many things they come and go
Like your words that once rang true
Just like the love I thought I found in you

26. Oh, make me over
I’m all I wanna be
A walking study
In demonology

Celebrity Skin – Hole (well done Kaz and Hannah, who I think both got this one simultaenously!)

27. Pack it up, pack it in

Let me begin
I came to win
Battle me that’s a sin
I won’t tear the sack up
Punk you’d better back up
Try and play the role and yo the whole crew will act up

Jump Around – House of Pain (well done, Accidental Londoner!)

28. Such a feeling’s coming over me
There is wonder in most ev’ry thing I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Top of the World – The Carpenters (well done, Goldy!)

29. Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of me

Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad – Meatloaf (WTG, Scarlet! I freaking love this song too :))

30. I ain’t the kind you take home to mama
I ain’t the kind to wear no ring
Somehow I always get stronger
When I’m on my second drink

Good luck, all!

    Your #29, Meatloaf's Two Out of Three Ain't Bad, is one of my all-time favorites, but I had trouble with a lot of these. Of course, I knew #2 by The Beatles. Guess I'm more of a rock chica. 🙂
