Music Meme (June edition)

I last did this meme a few years back and it was really fun (and musically geeky, which always works for me!). Reminds me of old school myspace quizzes.

The rules are:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or a few ;)) from the first 25 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

I thought I’d start doing it every so often because it’s always a giggle – if you know a song please leave a comment below or let me know on social.  Love me some music.

I’ll also post the full list Friday.  To the music!

1. Party girls don’t get hurt

Can’t feel anything, when will I learn

I push it down, push it down

2. Girls you know you better watch out

Some guys, some guys are only about

3. I.. love you, and I.. need you

Nelly I.. love you, I do.. neeeeed you – but

Dilemma – Nelly ft. Kelly Rowland
(well done, Haydy!)

4. We’re a thousand miles from comfort, 

We have traveled land and sea

Rather Be – Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne
(well done, Haydy!)

5. Wake up in the morning feeling like P-Diddy

Tik Tok – Kesha
(Well done, 10eke!)

6. (Hey, Hey)

Bye, Bye, Bye

Bye, Bye…

Bye, Bye…

Oh, Oh..

7. Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand

But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man

Stay With Me – Sam Smith
(well done, Haydy!)

8. When your legs don’t work like they used to before

And I can’t sweep you off of your feet

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
(Well done, 10eke!)

9. Just another one champion sound

Yeah, Estelle, we ’bout to get down 

10. ‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life

Try to make ends meet

You’re a slave to money then you die

Bittersweet Symphony – The Verve
(well done, Haydy!)

11. You’re gonna be a shining star, with fancy clothes, fancy car-ars

And then you’ll see, you’re gonna go far

12. Like the legend of the Phoenix

All ends with beginnings

13. I’m bringing sexy back

Them other boys don’t know how to act

SexyBack – Justin Timberlake

14. What about sunrise

What about rain

What about all the things

That you said we were to gain…

Earth Song – Michael Jackson
(Well done, 10eke!)

15. When I was a young boy,

My father took me into the city

To see a marching band

16. I remember when we broke up the first time

Saying, “This is it, I’ve had enough,”

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift
(well done, Haydy!)

17. I was born long ago 

I am the chosen I’m the one 

18. She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak

I’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks

19. Where I come from isn’t all that great

My automobile is a piece of crap

20. I wish could tie you up in my shoes

Make you feel unpretty too

Unpretty – TLC
(well done, Haydy!)

21. It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M

Just put your paws up

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

22. Go, go, go, go go, go, go, shawty

It’s your birthday

In Da Club – 50 Cent
(well done, Haydy!)

23. You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew

But I don’t care for sugar honey if I can’t have you

24. How can you see into my eyes like open doors?

Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb

25. I said her from the city so her got to be witty, witty

She said him from the country so him got to be funky, funky 

Millionaire – Kelis ft. Andre 3000
(well done, Haydy!)

Good luck, all!
