Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

Okay, I skipped track one because the lyrics – well, I don’t know them, and it’s samples played backwards. I then had to skip the second track because it’s a mashup – and I can’t figure out the words.

So, uh.
1) shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
2) [title of track][name of group] This demonstration will feature music in many different styles
3) A mans life got took away in the city today, they say
4) We were sitting round a dying fire
5) Take me tenderley, If you could salivate I would appreciate that
6) They don’t eat
7) N-n-n-n-n-Nineteen
8) He’s walking where I’m afraid I don’t know
9) Enrapture – Final Temptation – No lyrics… So Next number 9…
9b)You say that it’s over baby, lord
11) If I could turn you on
12) Hello Mother
13) [song title], acintya bheda bheda [song title]
14) Oh I could hide, ‘neath the wings
15) One Two, Boys By the River
16) Anol shalom
17) Through early morning fog I see
18) Heaven bent to take my hand
19) Mr Airplane Man – Up in the Room – (Unable to find lyrics)
19b) Hello darkness my old friend
20) Watching the people get lairy

Okay, now that’s a fracking impossible list…


Kate's allegedly a human (although increasingly right-wing bigots would say otherwise). She's definitely not a vampire, despite what some other people claim. She's also mostly built out of spite and overcoming oppositional-sexism, racism, and other random bullshit. So she's either a human or a lizard in disguise sent to destroy all of humanity. Either way, she's here to reassure that it's all fine.

  1. Well, 20 could only be the Kaiser Chiefs (“I Predict a Riot”). And 7 really has to be “Nineteen” by whoever it was, somewhere way back in my childhood.

    19b would be Simon and Garfunkel (“The Sound of Silence”). Sorry, I cheated on that by accident – I thought it was the Carpenters, then looked up the later lyrics and discovered I was wrong.

    9 deserves to be in the list because it’s cool; you can always make up your own lyrics. :)

    And that’s about my limit.

    As an extra, funniest T-shirt from the last fortnight was worn by a very large, fat man. Slogan: “I predict a diet.”

    Cracked me up anyway.
