Because I'm a little bored, and this sounds like it might be fun. From [livejournal.com profile] caper_est:


1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines of the first 20 songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration.

1. Hey now everybody now, hey now everybody, hey now everybody now.
2. I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.
3. How I remember sleepless nights, when we would read by candlelight.
4. I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner.
5. I heard a sound. I turned around. I turned around to find the thing that made the sound.
6. All the people are so happy now, their heads are caving in. I'm glad they are a snowman with protective rubber skin.
7. Asked the girl what she wanted to be. She said, "Baby, can't you see?"
8. The world is treating me bad.
9. All dressed up, with nowhere to go.
10. Well, I was born an original sinner, I was born from original sin.
11. I used to see in my reflection a hundred broken hearts.
12. You know you made me cry. I see no use in wondering why.
13. What would you think if I sang out of tune? Would you stand up and walk out on me?
14. I walk the streets alone. On feeble bones I ride. My sins are etched in stone. I got no place to hide.
15. Nobody knows what it's like, to be the bad man. To be the sad man.
16. Got a little black book with my poems in, got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in.
17. I never should have traded you. Is there anything, anything I can do to start to try and make amends?
18. "There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief.
19. It won't be easy. You'll think it strange, when I try to explain how I feel.
20. I was working all night in my office, when a man I had recently killed called me up from the phone near my building, so I looked out the window at him.

My music runs a lot to instrumentals -- #20 here is #94 on the player. (I did have to skip over some that had a title drop early on.) I counted "Evolution of the Daleks" and "Duel of the Fates" as instrumentals, as I didn't care to try to transcribe their lyrics phonetically.
