A Game

Because I'm too busy to sit and think of anything worth writing about at the moment:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or verse) from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs, or label it, when someone guesses both artist and track correctly and put the correct answer and who got it.
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.

1. The summer wind came blowin' in from across the seas, it lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me...

2. I've this creeping suspicion that things here are not as they seem, reassure me, why do I feel as if I'm in too deep?

3. We have swept to glory, Egypt's mastery expands from the Nile's northern delta to the dry, dry southern sands. The more we find, the more we see, the more we come to learn. The more that we explore, the more we shall return. "Fortune Favors the Brave" from Elton John/Tim Rice's "AIDA." (Connie)

4. I am the child that lives forever, let me run about, I can do the things that you will envy, wish and dream about. I run amuck don't give a f*ck, I will leave you all stranded for no reason when you least expect it.

5. Darling? (yes?) Robert. (what?) I worry. (why?) He's all alone. (Oh.) There's no one (where?) in his life (huh), Robert ought to have a woman...

6. I've got something to say that might cause you pain. If I catch you talking to that boy again, I'm gonna let you down and leave you flat.

7. Three-thirty in the morning, not a soul in sight. The city's lookin' like a ghost town on a moonless summer night. Raindrops on the windshield, there's a storm movin' in. He's headin' back from somewhere that he never should have been... "The Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks (Connie)

8. With a little love and some tenderness, we'll walk upon the water, we'll rise above the mess. With a little peace and some harmony, we'll take the world together, we'll take 'em by the hand...'cause I got a hand for you.. "Hold My Hand" by Hootie & the Blowfish (Connie)

9. I am he is you are he is you are me and we are all together. See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly. "I Am the Walrus" by The Beatles (Suldog)

10. Strangely quiet, but now the storm simply rests to strike again. Standing, waiting, I think of her...I think of her. Strange this Mary, she leaves the room yet remains...she lingers on. Something stirs me to think of her...I think of her...

11. In my platforms I hit the floor. I fell facedown, didn't help my brain out, then my baby came before I found the magic oh, to keep her happy. I never was the fantasy of what you wanted me to be. Don't judge me so harsh, little girl.

12. Just too unreal all this...watching the worlds fall from my lips. Baiting some girl with hypotheses...

13. You have my heart, and we'll never be worlds apart. Maybe in magazines, but you'll still be my star... "Umbrella" by Rhianna (Connie)

14. When you look into my eyes, and you see the crazy gypsy in my soul, it always comes as a surprise when I feel my withered roots begin to grow. Well I never had a place that I could call my very own, but that's all right my love....

15. Lowering the standards in the process selective. The formula's too thin. But it takes more than one person, so everyone jump on. I'll miss you when you're just like them.

16. Baby when I met you there was peace, I know. I set out to get you with a fine-tooth comb. I was soft inside, there was something goin' on. "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton (Connie)

17. Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup, they slither while they pass they slip away across the universe... "Across the Universe" by The Beatles (Connie)

18. Someone to hold you too close, someone to hurt you too deep. Someone to sit in your chair, to ruin your sleep... "Being Alive" from Sondheim's "Company" (2006 Revival Cast Recording) (Connie)

19. I get no kick from champagne, mere alcohol, it doesn't move me at all. So tell me, why should it be true? "I Get a Kick Out of You" by Frank Sinatra (Connie)

20. You've got your ball, you've got your chain tied to me tight, tie me up again.

21. Highway run into the midnight sun...wheels go round and round in my mind. Restless hearts sleep alone tonight. Sendin' all my love along the wire... "Faithfully" by Journey (Connie)

22. I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go. And help us to be wise in times when we don't know. "The Prayer" as performed by Andrea Boccelli/Celine Dion (Connie)

23. You and me, we come from different worlds. You like to laugh at me when I look at other girls. Sometimes you're crazy, and you wonder why I'm such a baby cuz the Dolphins make me cry "I Only Wanna Be With You" by Hootie & The Blowfish (Connie)

24. When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom... "Let it Be" by The Beatles (Connie)

25. This is a song...for the ladies. But fellas? Listen closely. You don't always have to f*ck her hard...in fact sometimes, that's not right to do.

  2. Wow, Connie, you did pretty well for some random obscure crap my iPod decided to play!! :) I didn't give you credit for #20 though, since you didn't have the song name. :P

  3. Well, the only one I can get is #9. "I Am The Walrus" by The Beatles (or, in my record collection, by a group called Spooky Tooth, but that's probably not the one that showed up for you.)

  4. Sadly the only one I know is #20. Crash into Me, Dave Matthews Band.
