This seemed like fun, more from the point of view of analyzing my own… - Musings & Ravings
This seemed like fun, more from the point of view of analyzing my own music collection than anything else. I was inclined to disqualify pied_piper70 from playing as I figured it would be too easy for him. But then my collection shuffled such that it was five songs before I heard english and decided he could play after all.

There are a couple of gimme's in there but, for the most part I couldn't even identify most of these.

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25-ish songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own. :D

6 Particle Man by They Might Be Giants. yeah that was too easy.
34 Newry Highwayman performed by lots of people.

11 and 17 sound familiar but I can't place them.

AHhh! BUT you are wrong on #6. It was written by TMBG but it was a recording of a children's choir!
And #34 was done by Boiled in lead.

I'm disappointed in you if you can't get #17

That's cheating! How the hell am I supposed to guess the recording band when more than one have recorded it? I'm pretty sure I have Newry Highwayman by at least three different bands. Pah!

And you can feel disappointed in me over #17. I just googled it and am now retreating in shame. I should have known.

Oh,like I have time to play these reindeer games...Notice me posting lately?

I'm sure by the time you have time, most of these will still be open and unanswered.

#25 is Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Dream Child"
#31 - They Might be Giants, "Kiss Me, Son of God"

#27 could be any number of variations - but I'm going to go with "Stille Nacht" by Mannheim Steamroller.
(My luck you have a Vienna Boys Choir recording of it).

I have to think about the rest.

WRONG!! #27 is NOT what you think it is. That version is "Stille Nacht, heilige nacht, Alle schlaeft, einsam wacht."

Damn it! See what happens when I don't read/translate the whole German lyric? *sigh*

While I'm at it: #26: "The Letters" (or maybe it's just "Letters") by Leonard Cohen.
#28 - "The Way Life's Meant to be" by ELO

OH! And #2 - Star Wars: A New Hope soundrack (and I think it's just called "Cantina Band" on the CD) - which is now totally stuck in my head - thanks.

No credit for #2. I just added instrumentals to note they were there.

#17 The Toronto Song (also known as "Ontario Sucks") - Three Dead Trolls In A Baggie

No death metal. Peh.

Death metal is NOT music!

It's useful for putting me to sleep.
