such a lemming

Well since everyone else is doing it, I, too, want to do the music meme-ish quiz-y thing.

1. I put my media player on random
2. I give you the opening lyrics from each of the first 40 tracks that plays.
3. You guess the song title and the artist, to be selected from below.
4. I bold out the lyric and the artist(s) from the list when guessed correctly.

I'll try to pass on the completely obvious ones, and I won't repeat any bands... Have fun!

Band Bank!
The Animals, Beastie Boys, Beatles, Beck, Blind Melon, Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Counting Crows, Crash Test Dummies, Dave Matthews Band, Dionne Warwick, Dishwalla, Eddie Vedder, Eve 6, Freedy Johnston, Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, Green Day, Gym Class Heroes, Interpol, Jimmy Eat World, Journey, Matchbox 20, Nirvana, Oasis, Queen, The Proclaimors, Radiohead, Sarah McLachlan, She Wants Revenge, Simon & Garfunkel, Sixpence None the Richer, Stone Temple Pilots, Thomas Dolby, Vertical Horizon, Weezer, Weird Al Yankovich, White Town, The Who, The Zombies


Lyrics:
  1. I'm on a mission / I made my decision / to lead a path of self destruction
  2. When she walks down the steet / She knows there's people watching.
  3. Keep on talking like a novacane hurricane / Low static on the poor man's short-wave (Novacane | Beck)
  4. Once again, I'm in trouble with my old friend / She is papering the window panes
  5. As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain / I take a look at my wife and realize that she's very plain (Amish Paradise | Weird Al)
  6. If I go / before I'm old / Oh brother of mine, please don't forget me if I go
  7. Basically I'm complicated / I have a hard time taking the easy way
  8. I know I've got a bad reputation / and it isn't just talk talk talk
  9. And I feel that time's a wasted go / so where ya going tomorrow?
  10. Come on, oh my star is fading / I swerve out of control
  11. Just tell me what you've got to say to me / I've been waiting for so long to hear the truth
  12. No one knows what its like / to be the bad man / to be the sad man (Behind Blue Eyes | The Who)
  13. It must've been mid-afternoon / I could tell by how far the child's shadow stretched out
  14. Is this the real life? / Is this just fantasy? (Bohemian Rhapsody | Queen)
  15. Good God! Don't jump! / A boy sat on the ledge. / an old man who had fainted was revived
  16. If I fall along the way / pick me up and dust me off (Bent | Matchbox 20)
  17. Slow it down some no split clown / bum, your old hit sound dumb / hold it now, crown 'em
  18. When I think of heaven / deliver me in a black-winged bird / i think of flying down in a sea of pens and feathers
  19. Listen as the wind blows across the great divide / voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time
  20. All I can say is that my life is pretty plain / i like watching the puddles gather rain (No Rain | Blind Melon)
  21. Once there was this kid who got into an accident and couldn't come to school / but when he finally came back / his hair had turned from black into bright white
  22. So you sailed away into a grey sky morning / now i'm here to stay / love can be so boring
  23. There is freedom within / there is freedom without / try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
  24. When I get older, losing my hair / many years from now / will you still be sending me valentines?
  25. BOOM! and the world mashed up / Well, things get hectic quick / from the satellite dish to your joystick
  26. Highway run into the midnight sun / wheels go round and round / you're on my mind
  27. I would swallow my pride / i would choke on the rhines / but the lack thereof would leave me empty inside (Inside Out | Eve 6)
  28. There must be someway out of here / said the joker to the theif / there's too much confusion / i can't get no relief (All Along the Watchtower | Bob Dylan)
  29. If you're listening whoooooooooah / Sing it back whooooooah (Sweetness | Jimmy Eat World)
  30. Baby, do you understand me now? / sometimes i feel a little mad
  31. Its poetry in motion / she turned her tender eyes to me / as deep as any ocean / as sweet as any harmony
  32. Take a look at my girlfriend, she's the only one i got / not much of a girlfriend, i never seem to get a lot
  33. If you see me walking down the street / and i start to cry, each time we meet
  34. When I wake up yeah, i know i'm gonna be / i'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you (I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) | The Proclaimors)
  35. Where do bad folks go when they die? / they don't go to heaven where the angels fly (Lake of Fire | Nirvana)
  36. Here I stand, head in hand / turn my face to the wall / if she's gone i can't go on / feeling two foot small
  37. Take the time to make some sense / of what you want to say / and cast your words away upon the waves
  38. She smelled like 2am / took him back to her place / where all the saints adorn the wall / delivering her from grace
  39. Well no one told me about her / the way she lied / well no one told me about her / how many people cried
  40. Uh-huh, this is beginning to hurt / this is beginning to be serious






(the end.)

Current Mood: bored extremely effing bored
