50 First Lines


7. Jun. 2006, 10:08

its like 50 First Dates without the funny charm. Its also a terrible idea. 25 was a good number . . .

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, not matter how embarassing.
Step 3: Bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

The Lyrics;

1. Standing with your head so high, you know they're talking about you
Bet you started to think it couldn't go on without you

2. I will never want to date you while I can learn to hate you. Cruise Control

3. Innocence, it don't come easy - in a sense it never will Counting Down The Hours

4. How many roads must a man walk down, Before you call him a man? : Blowin' In The Wind

5. Rule one, is hang up your phone, because if you knew what's next, Famous Friends And Fashion Drunks

6. I fell on the playing field, the work of an errant heel The Sporting Life

7. Hey baby! you never felt this good
Freedom through your stereo and you wish you could
Take a bite, do a dance, get lost on a crusade, jump on this soul train: destination unknown

8. Here I lie, In a lost and lonely part of town Tragedy

9. When I saw you on 8th street, You could make my life complete, baby My My Kind Of A Girl

10. Wake up, put your shoes on
Take a breath of the northern air
And rub those eyes
Genuflect beneath the starry skies

11. You know you shouldn't hide but you always do
Even when you're gone, I can see right through
You want disconnection, you want me there enough for 2

12. Leaving the central state from shallow ground
Home in the valley but the rent's paid south
You said the urn was half full when I said it was half empty
With what was left of our fair city

13. I sit here clutching useless lists, And keys for doors that don't exist Stare At The Sun

14. Hey Porter! Hey Porter! Would you tell me the time? : Hey Porter

15. I know I like doing a lot of talking. Time goes on, I'm talking still
While soldier girls are dodging grenades
and rockets, and moms and dads are paying the bill
And they say, it's the only way

16. This is a tale of liberation,this dedication song operation iraqi liberation oil

17. I think I'll go home and mull this over, Before I cram it down my throat : Caring Is Creepy

18. We come on the sloop John B, Grandfather and me : Sloop John B

19. When all the dark clouds roll away
And the sun begins to shine
I see my freedom from across the way
And it comes right in on time

20. "Let me now turn, to our program for the future..."
"The economy right now, is extremely supportive of the president and hispolicies"
"FBI scientists have found chemical traces, consistent with a bomb or a missle, on a piece of wreckage..."

21. Early in the morning, risin' to the street What I Got (Reprise)

22. It’s certainly true, there’s better things to do. And though I don’t know everything, Shorty

23. I will make myself, a mile from the racetrack, drag my losses home. : William Blake Overdrive

24. Take this record. Start with self-mockery. : Mute Print

25. On and on, reckless abandon, Something's wrong Reckless abandon

26. I don't need to be a global citizen, 'Cuz I'm blessed by nationality. American Jesus

27. It was one hundred degrees, as we sat beneath a willow tree, Crooked Teeth

28. I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love
I'm hungry for your love
But I can wait now

29. Let's read the trees and their autumn leaves, As they fall like a dress undone Time Enough for Tears

30. Yea
S'what im talkin about
S-A-S, size aint shit, neva dat
Strong Arm Steady, talib kweli

31. Look at the ivy on the cold clinging wall
Look at the flowers and the green grass so tall
Its not a matter of when push comes to shove
Its just an hour on the wings of a dove

32. You're a little obsessed with me, And I'm a little bit scared of you Secret

33. rescue me when I get to deep,
talk to me there's nothing to tell,
everyone, is a hypocrite, look to me,
I'll save your soul,
now somebody out there must be reading my mail,

34. Petrol bombs & barricades, Anything to have our say The Apollo Programme Was a Hoax

35. Little boy little boy, Go and find some other girl to annoy : Little Boy

36. I try to write every line with perfection
Scarred to constantly remember the violence
The wound you put me through
It never meant the pain to you

37. We were in the graveyard, shovel in hand and digging. Safety Song

38. I wish you coulda been a fly on the wall
When I was 12 years old
Crying over my homework
I woulda slit my wrist if it wasn’t for
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Lemuria Rising

39. Hey kid you're not looking so good Total.Fucking.Gone.Song.

40. Wake up,
It's not,
Too late,
To save the remnants of,
Our hearts,
So stop giving up,

41. Walk away to save your face, You never were a genius Second Sight

42. Not long ago, and yet the image is so vague
I hesitate to label it a memory
There was a show of local color and I failed to stray
Cause I had nothing to offer but insufficiency

43. I would love to love you like you do me, I'd love to love you like you do me Love to Love You

44. nce again these bitter herbs
the perfect compliment to all your cryptic words
I nod but don't know what to say, but I know you
and I believe you're who you say you are so I?

45. I was fucking up, handing off the reigns to you. : A Picture of the World

46. Held like water in you shaking hands are all the small defeats a day demands. 10-6 or 9-5 trying, dying to survive. Never knowing what survival means. Confessions of a Futon-Revolutionist

47. I know you're down again and you see nothing but rain. You put your friends
through hell and that's why we get along so well.
I was always your girl

48. I'd like to think this is the last song for her, but I've been know to be wrong. Seriously, this time I think I mean it, because two years and a day seems like a good length for this crappy movie.

49. Dialed up his homie Murs on the telephone, Gotta talk to somebody who can tell him what the hell is wrong Gotta Lotta Walls

50. Make it like that famous country singer, Or that guy I saw last night on Jerry Springer I've Got An Ape Drape
