The bandwagon looked a bit crowded, so I'm jogging behind  
I'm not usually a huge meme fan, but this one (and the shipping one, which I'm sure I'll post soon) looked like a lot of fun. I decided to wait a few days after the rush so that people would be more likely to take the time to participate. :)

Stolen from at least 75% of my flist.

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2.Record the first few lines of the first thirty songs that come up that do not give away
the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration. That's right, just like a lobbyist in budget season, the points don't matter.

1.  We're only human baby/
We walk on broken ground/
We lose our way/
We come unwound

Saints and Angels, by Sara Evans (Guessed by giallarhorn)

2. You think that I go home at night/
Take off my clothes, turn out the lights/
But I burn letters that I write/
To you, to make you love me

Extraordinary, by Liz Phair (Guessed by giallarhorn)

3. Just a small town girl/
Living in a lonely world

(You don't seriously need more than that, do you?)
Don't Stop Believing, by Journey (Guessed by magic_7_words)

4. 3:30 in the morning/
Not a soul in sight/
The city's looking like a ghost town/
On a moonless summer night.

The Thunder Rolls, by Garth Brooks (Guessed by magic_7_words)

5. A little paint, to cover what's deep inside/
A little truth you know we all want to hide/
When I'm trying, I'm trying now to get to you/
But you're telling me like you always do, you say--

Just That Good, by The Calling (Guessed by lsw700)

6. There's moonlight on the trees/
Painting silver on the leaves/
It's so beautiful out here/
I just have to stop and stare

All alone, staring on/
Watching her life go by/
When her days are grey/
And her nights are black/
Different shades of mundane

8. I dreamed I was missing/
You were so scared/
But no one would listen/
'Cause no one else cared.

Leave Out all the Rest, by Linkin Park (Guessed by magic_7_words)

9. <famous recitation>
What language do you speak/
If you speak at all?/
Are you some kind of freak/
Who lives to raise the ones who fall?

How Do You Do, by Shakira (Guessed by giallarhorn)

10. This can't really be what life is all about/
Learning how to live just to live without/
The travesty's the irony, and the irony is you/
I've traded in my sanctity for a cheaper shade of blue.

11. When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful/
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical/
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily/
oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me.

The Logical Song, by Supertramp (Guessed by magic_7_words)

12. Lay you, lay you down/
Lay you down, lay you down/
Lay you, lay you down, my friend.

13. Hey, you say you like the way the cowboys tip their hats and say/
"How's it goin' ma'am?"/
But you're never quite clear if their glares are sincere/
Or really only just second hand.

14. Today/
We took a walk up the street/
We picked a flower and climbed a hill above the lake/

Never Saw Blue, by Hayley Westenra (Guessed by giallarhorn)

15. Now/
Don't just walk away/
Pretending everything's ok/
And you don't care about me.

Are You Happy Now? by Michelle Branch (guessed by giallarhorn)

16. September/
The leaves were falling red and gold and I/
Remember the way you pulled me closer.

Been Too Long, by Emmy Rossum (Guessed by giallarhorn)

17. My best friend had a little situation/
At the end of our senior year/
And like a shot she and Mitchell got married that summer.

I Can Do Better Than That, from The Last Five Years (guessed by spiffysavannah4)

18. Upon the bitter green she walked/
The hills above the town/
Echoed to her footsteps/
As soft as eiderdown

Bitter Green, by Gordon Lightfoot (Guessed by magic_7_words)

19. Like a bird in flight/
I am running from myself/
No help/
And nowhere to hide

Domino, by Alana Grace (Guessed by giallarhorn)

20. I turned my back/
You were gone in a flash/
Like you always do/
You always go off somewhere else

21. If I die young/
Bury me in satin/
Lay me down on a bed of roses.

If I Die Young, by The Band Perry (Guessed by magic_7_words)

22. Tommy used to work on the docks/
Unions been on strike/
He's down on his luck/
It's tough, so tough

Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi (Guessed by magic_7_words)

23. Women see me coming/
Children know my face/
I'm a local hero/
In this godforsaken place.

24. No more talk of darkness/
Forget those wide-eyed fears/
I'm here, nothing can harm you/
My words will warm and calm you.

All I Ask of You, from The Phantom of the Opera (Guessed by magic_7_words)

25. You're as sharp as a knife and you fit like a glove/
That is no way to live; that is no way to love/
Full of fear in your skin and the weakness in giving in.

Salt Skin, by Ellie Goulding (Guessed by giallarhorn)

26. ******************/
And I don't see you/
As you are now/
Ever again

What it the Storm Ends? by Snow Patrol (Guessed by lsw700)

27. I have wandered/
Far and wide/
For something real/
Something to die for.

Wanted, by Vanessa Carleton (Guessed by jessicaqueen)

28. I'd like to help you, doctor/
Yes I really really would/
But the din in my head/
It's too much and it's no good

Blood Makes Noise, by Suzanne Vega (Guessed by giallarhorn)

29. There's a drumming noise inside my head that starts when you're around/
I'd swear that you could hear it makes such an almighty sound.

Drumming Song, by Florence + The Machine (Guessed by giallarhorn)

30. Outside the cafe by the cracker factory/
You were practicing a magic trick/
And my thoughts got rude as you talked and chewed/
On the last of your pick and mix

Crying Lightning, by Arctic Monkeys (Guessed by lsw700)

Ok, I will be seriously impressed if people get all of these (*cough23cough*).

Wait. Hold on.

Wait a moment.


No, brain not wrapping around it yet. I'm going to go walk around till the alcohol and chemistry gets out of my brain and maybe I'll get past the first initial. Moment of surpriseincredualitywhatever.
sweet_anise: GoT Danysweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 01:36 am (UTC)
Um... what is there to wrap your brain around? We have basically the same music library; I would have thought this would be easy for you.

(Actually, my original plan was to make you wait 24 hours before answering, because you'll probably get all of them and no one else will have a chance. Maybe you could just answer in shifts of 10 instead, or something?)

Alternatively, you could just sleep, because clearly your handle on reality is not in the best shape right now.
giallarhorn: Altlivia smilinggiallarhorn on November 17th, 2011 05:42 am (UTC)
No, I was talking about the whole new account thing.

Bahh, Jess got most of the ones I would've gotten as well. And we almost have the same music library, except we're adding music at different rates/artists and etc. So it makes it fair game.

Alternatively, I just need a time machine. Or a way to go without sleeping or something :|

1) Sara Evans....er. I'm not sure of the song name, but I'm sure I could if I looked it up on iTunes.

2) Liz Phair...er, something I heard on the radio before? Favorite?

6) I want to say Stop and Stare by OneRepublic, but it doesn't actually work.


10) I recognize the lyrics from another music meme you did before, but.....I don't remember what it is right now.

14) The first three words of the name of your new blog, by Ms. Hayley Westerna

15) Michelle Branch, when she was doing pop music and not All you Wanted. That's about as far as I can remember.

16) Emmy Rossum, Been too long.

17) Alana Grace, I'm poofing on the name.

20) I should know this one with in reason, right?

25) Salt Skin by...what's her name Golding?


sweet_anise: GoT Danysweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 05:52 am (UTC)
Everything on this meme should be in your library-- it's all songs I've had for awhile.

So you get #9, 14, 16... and I'll give you 25 and 28, I guess, even though you didn't fully answer either.

You're so close on so many others, though!
giallarhorn: Olivia Specs!giallarhorn on November 17th, 2011 06:15 am (UTC)
28 I should get on virtue of the fact that it's very unlikely anyone else would recognize it as Suzanne Vega :p

Sara Evans- Saints and Angels
Liz Phair- Extraordinary
Michelle Branch- Are You Happy Now
Alana Grace- Domino

I should really know 10 and 20, I feel like. Merrr.
sweet_anise: Fringe Olivia S1 Ponytailsweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 06:28 am (UTC)
Yeahhh there you go :)

10 and 20... I think you have both of them, but I don't know that you'd be familiar with either.
giallarhorn: Alt!Fringe teamgiallarhorn on November 17th, 2011 06:32 am (UTC)
Florence and the Machine, Drumming Song. You can thank shuffle for that one.

If I do happen to win the prize of admiration, is it possible for me to swap in admiration for a choice of cookies instead?
sweet_anise: Fringe Olivia S1 Ponytailsweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 06:38 am (UTC)
You're guessing more than anyone else, yeah, but you also have an enormous advantage in that I know you have all of these songs (with the possible exception of #23). Does that even count?

What kind of cookies did you have in mind, anyway?
giallarhorn: Olivia Specs!giallarhorn on November 17th, 2011 06:50 am (UTC)
Hey, I'm trying to play fair here! Mostly. Kind of.

Lacies <3 They are called that, right?
WishingStar (a.k.a. magic_7_words)magic_7_words on November 17th, 2011 01:55 am (UTC)
1) I swear I know the name, but I can't remember the artist! So I'll give someone else a shot. (Gah, what is her last name???)

3) Don't Stop Believing by Journey!

4) The Thunder Rolls, by Garth Brooks.

8) Leave Out All The Rest, by Linkin Park.

11) The Logical Song, by Supertramp!

18) Bittergreen, by Gordon Lightfoot.

21) If I Die Young, by the Band Perry.

22) Livin' On A Prayer, by Bon Jovi.

23) Ooh ooh ooh it's the Ireland song! What's it called and what was that guy's name, aw SHOOT...

24) All I Ask Of You -- Phantom of the Opera
sweet_anisesweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 02:09 am (UTC)
Clearly, I should have made you wait until the end, too. (Assuming anybody else comments on this) :)

You were my one hope for 23! Oh, well, maybe by some crazy chance somebody will get it. (Although I think people often consider it not cheating to confirm details with itunes, as long as google isn't used? I'm not sure.)

Otherwise, all correct :)
spiffysavannah4spiffysavannah4 on November 17th, 2011 03:12 am (UTC)
17. I Can Do Better Than That!
sweet_anisesweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 03:38 am (UTC)
Yay Savannah! (I know you know the source, so I'm giving you credit even though you didn't mention it.)

Also, I'm trying to move all my LJ activity to this account, so I friended you so that I can see your entries on my friends page without having to log out and back in to my old account. If you friend me back, then I'll be able to read your f-locked posts, too. :) (There's probably an option to have my posts on this account not appear on your friends page, if you're worried about that.)
Queen of the Castlejessicaqueen on November 17th, 2011 05:02 am (UTC)
The only one I know off the top of my head that hasn't already been guessed (grr) is:
27. Wanted by Vanessa Carlton
sweet_anise: DW EoT Rosesweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 05:07 am (UTC)
But it's correct! Yay! (And it's one that I worried no one would get, so that's worth something.)
Queen of the Castlejessicaqueen on November 17th, 2011 05:11 am (UTC)
Ah, well, I quite liked Vanessa Carlton in my angsty teenage years, before I got over that overly mournful style of singing (for reference, I also liked Sarah McLachlan). I'm kind of surprised I remember it, though.

5. Just That Good by... The Calling, I think?
26. What If The Storm Ends? by Snow Patrol
30. Crying Lightning by Arctic Monkeys
sweet_anise: DW EoT Rosesweet_anise on November 17th, 2011 01:47 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, yes!
