Okay, I’ve been saying I would do this, and I think this is a really fun game, plus it keeps me from doing my work. Pete started the game, and lots of people have followed. Now, I kinda cheated, because if I took the first 20 songs on my shuffle, we would be here all day and some of them wouldn’t even have lyrics, so I picked the first 20 that I liked. Some of them are from personal favorites, and some of them I picked simply because I thought they weren’t too hard, but weren’t to obvious either.

  1. Load up your playlist and put it on shuffle
  2. Pick out a line from the first 20 songs and post them
  3. Commenters should try to guess the title & artist of the song that the lines are from
  4. Cross them out when they’ve been correctly guessed
  5. NO CHEATING. (Yes, Googling the lyrics is cheating)

Here we go: 1. You dream of colors that have never been made, you imagine songs that have never been played, they will try to buy you and your mind, only the curious have something to find This Side, Nickel Creek – Libby 2. Did it take long to find me, I asked the faithful light, did it take long to find me, and are you gonna stay the night Cat Stevens – Moonshadow – Libby and Emily 3. I wish I could tell the world cause your such a pretty thing when you’re done up properly. I might want to marry you one day if you’d watch that weight and you’d keep your firm body Alanis Morrisette – Hands Clean – Kipp, although Jessica and Elizabeth got the artist. 4. Girl you used to be the best, to make life real life to me, and I hope that you’re still out there, and you’re like you used to be Steve Winwood – Back in the Highlife Again – Elizabeth and Jessica 5. Yes I can make it now, the pain is gone, all of the bad feelings have disappeared. Here is the rainbow I’ve been praying for Jimmy Cliff – I Can See Clearly Now – Libby and Elizabeth got the name, no one got the artist 6. Sad ain’t my style, but once in a while, I just have to give in. Cause a woman like you, is so hard to lose, you just don’t want it to end Joe Diffie – A Night To Remember – Libby, but Elizabeth got the song name 7. Now I don’t tell stories, and I don’t pretend, and I won’t be around to say I told you then, cause it seems like something’s finally broke, that will take a while to mend Alison Krauss – Forget About It – Emily 8. Shake it like jello make the boys say hello cause they know I’m rocking the beat Ciara – 1,2 Step – Jessica, Pete, Emily 9. Into this life we’re born, baby sometimes, sometimes we don’t know why, and time simply goes by so fast, in the twinkling of an eye Van Morrison – Bright Side of the Road – no one guessed this one. 10. For they could not love you, but still your love was true, and when no hope was left in sight on that starry, starry night, you took your life as lovers often do Don Mclean – Starry, Starry night – Emily 11. All you gotta do is smile that smile, and there go all my defenses, just leave it up to you and in a little while, your messing up my mind, and filling up my sense Dolly Parton – Here You Come Again – Emily and Jessica 12. I was there, and I saw what you did – saw it with my own to eyes. You can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been, it’s all be a pack of lies Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight – Elizabeth, Staci, and Emily 13. My eyes fear to close, this reckless letting go is hard to bear, on the edge of all I need, still I cling to what I see, and what have I there? Jennifer Knapp – Say Won’t You Say – no guesses 14. Can you recall a time people loved you unconditionally? Toasting the new south – "this one is for history!" Bubba Sparxx – Deliverance – Dean and Elizabeth of course, and Emily 15. Honey, I got over, you passing me over, a long time ago. And my pride was stronger, when I was younger, now I’d rather have you to know Patty Loveless – Here I Am – Emily 16. You in the moonlight, with your sleepy eyes, could you ever love a man like me? And you were right, when I walked into your house, I knew I’d never want to leave Don Henley and Stevie Nicks – Leather and Lace – Jessica 17. I need you, by me, beside me, to guide me, to hold me, to scold me, cause when I’m bad I’m so so bad Donna Summers – Last Dance – Preston! 18. I’m long gone darling, lonesome blue, I’ve been thinking of leaving, I’ve been thinking of you, but that big city singing, man, I like the way that it shines Nanci Griffith – Going Back to Georgia – no guesses 19. I recall your darkness, when it cracked like a thunder cloud. Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart…when I can hear it beat out loud Grateful Dead – Shakedown Street – no guesses, and this one really disappointed me, I thought everyone would know this one! Shame! 20. Somewhere on down the line, you are going to see that this little heart of mine, is so large, so wonderful, and so true. Somewhere on brighter days, you are going to see what a big mistake you made Otis Redding – Remember Me – no guesses, this didn’t surprise me. See old Comments | See old Trackbacks

The Office

Okay, Scrubs is one of my favorite shows of all time. And although part of me hates to admit it, I liked Committed. I mean, if I really think about it, I liked Good Morning Miami – and no one likes that sitcom. I love sitcoms. I really don’t expect much. I do hate laugh tracks – which is why I love Scrubs. And why I thought I would like The Office. But I don’t. Not really. It is just trying too hard. I wouldn’t be able to stand it if it had a laugh track. I did have a couple of giggles, but all the characters are pretty unlikable. And that is not the key to successful tv shows. The laughing I did do made me feel kind of bad about myself, because the people in the world like these characters are truly pathetic. Honestly, this show make me want to kill myself. Or at least hurt on of the characters. Kick them in the shins or pull their hair. I would jump off the parking deck if I worked at this office. I would love to work in Sacred Heart hospital (from Scrubs). Committed – not that great, but very likeable characters – same with Good Morning Miami. Of course, the characters of Will and Grace aren’t that likeable, but they aren’t dislikable and they at least get along with each other – plus they are funny. If the character isn’t going to be hilarious – like Karen or Dr. Kelso – then they need to be likeable, on some level. I liked most of the characters of Office Space. AND the jokes were funny. Also, I don’t want to tune in every week to something that depresses me. The American networks need to realize that popular British sitcoms can’t be replicated. A little originality would be appreciated. But the movie Sideways also depressed me to no end – maybe all the crazies out there that liked Sideways will watch The Office. But I hope not. Or I at least hope that they move the show to somewhere not after scrubs and before law and order so I don’t have to be subjected to it. See old Comments | See old Trackbacks

You May Be a Bit Narcissistic …
Yeah, you’re a bit fixated on yourself. But you’re so great, you can’t help it! You’re a bit obsessed with your own fame and success. And you’ll push past anyone who stands in your way.
What Personality Disorder Are You? I do not run over people and I definitely have much better hair than ole’ Trump. Basically, I’m better than this. EX-actly.
