music meme  
In lieu of actual content (because I'm writing my Shagathon fic *nods*), I present the Top 15 music meme, last seen with stargazercmc:

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on Top 25 Most Played.
Step 2: Post the first line from each song of the first 15, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Weed out duplicate artists.
Step 4: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 5: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 6: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

Weeding out duplicate artists and tracks with no lyrics (I have lots of film scores), I had to leave my Top 25, but luckily one can sort on play count. At least four of these are in this list because I had/have designs on vidding them. *snort* you can all tell how often I follow through on that.

(I don't include spoken words at the beginning of a few tracks, btw, only the main lyric.)

1. Now, my head is spinning. At the back of my mind, I think I'm winning.

2. This time, this place, misused, mistakes

3. You ask me what I want this year

4. It seems to me that you know just what to say

5. I will not make the same mistakes that you did

6. You know I've been mistaken, just give me a break

7. Precious and fragile things need special handling

8. He called her on the road, from a lonely cold hotel room

9. Open up the book you beat me with again

10. Live my life around her picture taken when we met

11. Waking up to find another day, the moon got lost again last night

12 I have to block out thoughts of you - Hate Me by Blue October, identified by stargazercmc

13. Step one you say we need to talk

14. Two weeks away feels like the whole world should've changed

15. In the day, in the night, say it right, say it all

'Paralyzer' has not yet made it on this list, even though I'm COMPLETELY addicted to this song. I desperately want to make a crack Baal vid to it. "This club will hopefully be closed in three weeks" = Dakara. And pairing him up with everyone he's ever been in a scene with during the chorus repeats. hee.

well, it amuses me, anyway. :)

#12 is "Hate Me" by Blue October

Aaaaaaaand a whole bunch more that look familiar. I'll catch them when I'm not on my lunch break.

they're not very tricky for the most part. :)
I realized I only wear out put new songs on repeat. Everything old only comes up on shuffle (because I wore them out ages ago).

yes. And 11 is 4 in the Morning by Gwen Stefani, if you haven't remembered yet.

Thumbs up for your icon!
