Music meme

I love whenever I get a chance to do this meme – I love chatting about music, sharing music and enjoying music, so this lyrics game is always a favourite of mine.  Surrounded as I am by marking, deadlines and busy-ness on this Sunday evening (praise heaven for scheduled posts!), I thought I’d post this up for your Monday entertainment.

The rules:

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

Some of you always do brilliantly on these – I may have to start doing this every few months with a leaderboard!  Have at it, my lovelies!

Warning: A lot of these are ‘workout’ tunes, so the cheese/pop quota is fairly high! 🙂

1. There ain’t no reason you and I should be alone,
Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby.

Edge of Glory – Lady Gaga (Goldy) 

2. There is no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart

3. Have mercy, baby on a poor girl like me,
You know I’m falling, falling, falling at your feet,
I’m tingling right from my head to my toes,
So help me, help me, help me make the feeling go.

4. Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die

Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye (Goldy)

5. Workin’ like a dog for the boss man
Workin’ for the company
I’m bettin’ on the dice I’m tossin’
I’m gonna have a fantasy

6. Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.

All You Need Is Love – The Beatles (Goldy)

7. I threw a wish in the well,
Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you’re in my way

Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen (Goldy)

8. Now the king told the boogie men
You have to let that raga drop
The oil down the desert way
Has been shakin’ to the top

9. Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

10. When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There’s so much they hold

11. I’m so glad I found this
I”m so glad I did
I’m so glad I found this
I’m so glad I did

12. Well, you walked into the room just like the sun
And woke the caveman from his endless slumber
And with the quickness of your arm
You pulled out a paint brush
And you painted the sky back to blue

13. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
I get a feeling that I never never never never had before, no no

Good Feeling – Flo Rida (Goldy)

(Bwahahaha – yep, I like this song for working out!)

14. Hey boy, take a look at me
Let me dirty up your mind
I’ll strip away your hard veneer
And see what I can find

15. I made a promise to myself
Locked it away deep down inside
Told my heart we’d wait it out
Swore we’d never compromise

16. You’re insecure,
Don’t know what for,
You’re turning heads when you walk through the door.

17. Oh
Oooh yeah
Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
and the spiders from Mars. 

Ziggy Stardust – David Bowie (Goldy)

18. 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

19. Yellow diamonds in the light
Now we’re standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive

20. When I was a child, running in the night, I was afraid of what might be
Hiding in the dark and hiding on the street, and of what was following me

Hounds of Love – Kate Bush (Goldy)

21. I could lie awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Well you’re far away dreaming

Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith (Goldy)

22. You know the bed feels warmer, sleeping here alone,
You know I dream in colour, and do the things I want

23. Where’s the love song?
To set us free
Too many people down
Everything turning the wrong way around

24. I could lie awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Well you’re far away dreaming

Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith(repeat, oops!)

25. The sun goes down, the stars come out,
And all that counts is here and now,
My universe will never be the same.

Glad You Came – The Wanted (Goldy)

26. Some people might say my life is in a rut,
But I’m quite happy living with what I got
People might say that I should strive for more,
But I’m so happy I can’t see the point.

27. I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you

Friday I’m In Love – The Cure (Goldy)

28. Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom
Getting higher than the Empire State

29. I can’t help my feelings;
I’ll go out of my mind.
These players come to get me
’Cause they’d like my behind.

30. Look at him looking
Everybody see how he looks at me
Like to set me on fire like to burn
Like to set me on fire like to burn
