So it's been a while since I did a meme. Been a while since I've been online long enough to do one to be honest! And I wasn't tagged, I just decided to do the lyrical meme that keeps going round.

Switch your preferred media player to random or shuffle or whatever. Post lyrics from the first 20 tracks to play no matter what they are and ask your flist to guess them! (I chose not to have repeated artists so I cheated a tad bit). Don't skip ahead to the cool tracks!

1 - "Japanese got Jesus robots
Telling teenage fortunes
For all we know and all we care
They might as well be Martians"

2 - "I told the passers-by
I made a small boy cry
Yeah, and I'll get through to you
If it's the last thing that I do."

3 - "We can't see eye to eye
Like the way we used to do
When it's all been said and done
Still a candle burns for you"

4 - "Now you're moving out of range
You're drifting off my radar
Won't return my calls"

5 - "I keep everything inside so long till it burns
And everybody stokes the fire
And the walls get a little higher"

6 - "We were so drunk last night
We had that stupid fight
You called me a useless selfish prick"

7 - "Like the desert
Waiting for the rain
Like a school kid
Waiting for the spring"

8 - "No one tell me that there's no excuse in being late
I was only minutes away from the lady whose face was irate
Oh she seemed
To hate my being"

9 - "Is there anything I can do for you my dear?
Is there anyone I could call?
No and thank you please madam
I ain't lost just wandering"

10 - "It's four in the morning
and I'm walking along
beside the ghost of every drinker
who's ever done wrong"

11 - "She tries her luck with the traffic police
out of boredom more than spite"

12 - "People drinking on their own
push buttons on the phone"

13 - "An hour or so until last call I guess
I shouldn't even be here much less
Drinking myself into excess
I'm not going home until I'm done"

I skipped a couple of tracks here because they were repeated artists and Sa DingDing. I can't transcribe her lyrics 'cause they're Cantonese (I think)

14 - "Show me nights when she laughed so innocent
I'll be happy waiting till they come."

15 - "We're on a hell slide
help us
help us"

16 - "in magazines so gently thumbed
by landing lights when you were young
as the radio would talk you off to sleep"

17 - "I got a lot of people talking at me
tryin' to tell me who I should and who I should not be
I'd feel a whole lot better if I wasn't alone"

18 - "City fast asleep
Clouds up on the hill
So quiet
So still"

19 - "I'm alone but I'm not lonely
I'm with the only person that knows me"

Journey by Jason Manns guessed by petit_rhino

20 - "We stop in every passing place
To watch the world move faster than we do
Watch it pass with our eyes closed
The way we usually choose to"


Yeah, some are obscure, not many are recent... Good luck!

I only recognised 19 for sure (Journey - JM). A few others sound familiar but I can't place them.

*turns to google*

A few actually sound familiar, but without cheating I don't know any for sure!

I have a habit of picking the most obscure lyrics from trackls that people know.

Yeah, didn't realise 'til you said that that it's not one of those first line memes, they're from any part of the song! Still don't know any for certain without the use of google though...
