Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random. (I'm having to use lastfm so some of them might be more than a smidge obscure. I've skipped the ones where I couldn't find the lyrics. And the one in Gaelic.)
Step 2: Post a favorite line from the first 20 songs that play
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Webcheating is frowned upon.
1 - Oh oh leave us alone
I shouldn't have to tell you down the microphone
2 - I wish I had a reason, my flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying
3 - For knowing that someone in this life,
Loves with a passion called hate
And what you give is what you get.
4 - Spinning around
Two howling moons
'Cause they're always there
Whatever I do
5 - I passed on my way, God be praised that I met her
Be life long or short I will never forget her
6 - This is ten percent luck
Twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure
Fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to [title redacted]
(I couldn't help myself)
She is handsome. She is pretty.
She is the bell of Belfast City.
She is courtin' one, two, three.
Please won't you tell me, who is she?

8 - Is this a blessing or is it a curse?
Does it get any better? Can it get any worse?
Will it go on forever? Or is it over tonight?
Does it come with the darkness? Does it bring out the light?
Is it richer than diamonds?
Or just a little cheaper than spit?
9 - What we've just tasted we somehow still miss
How will it feel when this day is done?
And can we keep what we've only begun?
10 - And I've always been a patient man, but my patience has reached its end
You tell me you're leaving, you tell me goodbye
You say you might send a letter
Well honey don't telephone, 'cause I won't be alone
11 - And it's never the time, boy,
You've had too much wine to stumble up my street.
Well it isn't a problem,
Nothing we can't keep between the sheets,
Tell me you're mine, love,
And I will not wait for other bedtime treats.
12 - It's one day of trust
Three years of lust
And it's my life or bust
And do you feel the same things too?
13 - Strange news has come to town, strange news is carried
Strange news flies up and down that my love, he's married
I wish them both much joy though they can't hear me
And may God reward them well for the slighting of me
14 - Press eject when the fund it ends,
Then again on the gravy train.
15 - I've got ideas
You get more fears to revel in
16 - Oh Was it something I said
Was it something I, I didn't do
Well you invaded my head
And you tried to make me, make me think like you
17 - Can you feel it
Rockin' the city
Straight out of nowhereness
Like a fist
Can't resist you oh no
I tell you something
18 - Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
19 - You didn't know what to say
It all came at you today
Can't get out your own way
Well hold on, hold on, hold on.
20 - Cause she is watchin' wrestling
Creamin' over tough guys
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in her eyes
She likes 'em with a mustache
Racetrack season pass
Drivin' in a Trans-Am
Does a mullet make a man?
