nipped from erron_actually  
Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses the titles and artists correctly and put the name of the song/who sings it and the username of the person who guessed it at the end of the lyric.
Step 4: Looking them up on google or any other search engine is CHEATING!!!

8. Possession, Sarah MacLachlan
43. Such Great Heights, Postal Service (or possibly the Ben Folds cover, I dunno)

...and those are all the ones I know! XD
Kel: awesomesauce!ladyjoust on August 15th, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
Right on both counts! And I have both versions of 'Such Great Heights,' but it's the Postal Service version (which, incidentally, I prefer) that came up in shuffle.
Kel: kryptoladyjoust on August 15th, 2008 11:28 pm (UTC)
Also: you don't know #12? Or 41? Really?

... but I might be misremembering, so if I am, sorry!

I cheated and googled the songs, and yes, I really should know them. I just haven't been able to get my hands on .mp3s of them. XD

re: #6 - yes! think on it. it'll come to you.

re: #27 - right artist, wrong song. it's from a different album. both songs have awesome drums, though. :)

Can't Take it In, Imogen Heap WHO IS AMAZING and if you want, I can upload some live tracks of hers for you. <3333
Kelladyjoust on August 16th, 2008 05:21 pm (UTC)
Correct! I'd love the live tracks; I don't know any of her work other than this song.

And I can return the favor with Vienna Teng, if you so desire!
Stealth Chaos Butterflybunnymcfoo on August 16th, 2008 05:23 pm (UTC)
yay, yes please! <3

Imogen is AMAZING, you will love her.

49. Wonderfalls - Andy Partridge

That's it for me...

Guess we don't have the same affinity when it comes to music... heh!
Kelladyjoust on August 16th, 2008 01:58 am (UTC)
Ah, but it's such a good song to know! It's funny... having this song come up on random made me realize I have no XTC on my iTunes. Must remedy, posthaste.

mistress_kathmistress_kath on August 16th, 2008 01:19 am (UTC)
34 - "Stolen Child" (Now in my CD player it would be The Reelies, but I'm guessing yours is Lorena McKennitt)

37 - "Matty Groves" (Again, in my CD player, we're talking Reelies)

Tart Tartuberlibra on August 16th, 2008 01:53 am (UTC)
11. Dar Williams, The Blessings
22. Dar Williams, off The Honesty Room, but I don't remember the name of the song unless I check my iTunes.
35. "Wick", Broadway Cast Recording of The Secret Garden featuring John Cameron Mitchell
37. Matty Groves--which version are you playing though? I've heard a few.
49. I know what it's from and what it's called but not who recorded it. (Wonderfalls!!)
Kelladyjoust on August 16th, 2008 02:08 am (UTC)
You were beat to it on Matty Groves and Wonderfalls, but you're spot on with The Blessings and Wick. And you're on target with #22.
Angelosomnamscream on August 16th, 2008 02:58 am (UTC)
4. Old Paulina - Great Big Sea
Kelladyjoust on August 16th, 2008 03:00 am (UTC)
You got it, sweetling!
Tart Tartuberlibra on August 16th, 2008 03:43 am (UTC)
20. Nothing to Hide, Indigo Girls?
Kelladyjoust on August 16th, 2008 05:23 pm (UTC)
Close enough. It's actually called 'Reunion,' but I wouldn't have known that without looking at the track listing.
Stealth Chaos Butterflybunnymcfoo on August 16th, 2008 04:56 pm (UTC)
I believe that 42 is the Tower by Vienna Teng.

Which I don't have on my computer now, dagnabit, but MAN she's amazing.
