The lyrics meme rolls around again
This time, blessedly, without the requirement that you have to ID the artist as well as the song. Gacked from valarltd.

The rules:
Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 20 songs that play
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly
P.S: no cheating and pasting the lyrics into a search engine

#2 - "David Duchovny"
#11 - is from Chess, but I can't think what song - I bet that's far *too* vague, isn't it?
#21 - "Nobody's Side"

There are a lot that are just right *there* in my brain, but I can't quite get there. *sighs*

ACK! #9 is that awesome song from TBQ's mixed CD! But I never got the name!!!

It goes on "Why would yo make it easier on me to satisfy" and "Black black heart" and "I'm on fire" and I don't know the NAME! Argh!

wolfling

2004-12-09 07:25 pm (UTC) (Link)

17. Tori Amos might have done a cover, but 10CC did the original.

19 Stop, Stop, Stop by The Hollies
One of their weirdest and funniest songs

mpoetess

2004-12-09 07:04 pm (UTC) (Link)

Cool. Tori's is the one I have, from the wes_visions_rpg soundtrack.

And 19 = yup! And it's forever linked in my mind with thebratqueen and her bellydancing adventures now, I fear.

More from Chess! Florence and the American, their last bit together ("No deal!")

mpoetess

2004-12-09 07:13 pm (UTC) (Link)

It's not 'no deal' (that's a bit earlier) but you're thinking of the right reprise, where he tells her to go be someone else's parasite. It's technically called "Florence Quits"
