Music Meme

It’s become a regular fixture on the blog… so here’s a new one

The Rules (in case you want to do it too!)

Step 1: Put your iPod/MP3 player or iTunes on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post it on your blog and let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly & post the title in bold after the stricken song.
Step 5: Looking the lyrics up on Google or any other search engine is cheating! Please play nice!

Also, if you know the song – leave your guess in a comment, if you are right, I will post your name (or link if you prefer). Have fun!
