• a poem of sorts

    30. Mär. 2008, 7:25

    Put your playlist on shuffle and write down the first 25 songs you get...

    1. Muscle'n Flo- Menomena
    2. Penny Lane - The Beatles
    3. Mercy Seat - Nice Cave & The Bad Seeds
    4. Think Locally, Fuck Globally - Gogol Bordello
    5. Fur Soft As Fur - The Boy Least Likely To
    6. In This Twilight - Nine Inch Nails
    7. Not Great Men - Gang of Four
    8. Whatever's Left - Snow Patrol
    9. Stairway to Heaven - Led Zepplin
    10. Such Great Heights - The Postal Service
    11. My Way - Sex Pistols
    12. Pink Moon - Nick Drake
    13. Hooker With a Penis - Tool
    14. Choose Life - Underworld
    15. I Saw The Sign - Ace of Base
    16. Intervention - The Arcade Fire
    17. Fall Asleep for Nuclear War - Pretty Balanced
    18. Soaked - Pinback
    19. High Times - Elliott Smith
    20. Secret Heart - Feist
    21. Paranoid Android - Radiohead
    22. Galang - M.I.A.
    23. Gay Bar - Electric 6
    24. Barely Breathing - Duncan Sheik
    25. Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright

    Now take the first line from the first song, the second line from the second song, third line from the third song, etc. and put them in order below to make your scrambled song. If the song doesn't have enough lines loop back to the beginning--like if you need the 22nd line but the song only has 15 lines, you start counting again with the first line as line 16 and end up using line 7

    Oh in the morning
    All the people that come and go
    And put me in Death Row
    Fuck globally

    Fur soft as fur
    And the world we set on fire
    It's not made by great men
    And you blast off in another rant

    Sometimes all of our thoughts are mis-given
    When you're out there on the road
    I did what I had to do
    And none of you stand so tall

    Suckin' up
    Choose your friends
    To get into the light where you belong
    (And you keep it inside)

    When you die asleep
    That's so you and you're soaked through
    High times, yeah I feel fine
    This loneliness, few can bear it

    Rain down, rain down
    Blaze a blaze
    Let's start a war
    I don't know who I'm kidding

    Maybe there's a god above.
