Oh yes, another one of these....

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
cut for those who've had enough of this stuff... )

Added more lines for the songs that are still mysteries.
clauclauclaudia: (fire fairy)
At this point I suppose my main hope is fresh LJ-friends pay attention to the meme, as it's mostly the songs known by fewer people that are left. ;-) I'll just edit this version from now on.

Italicized ones are answered, but the answers are hidden under the cut.

Titles and artists/albums sought:

3. You think you're denying me of something
well, i've got plenty
you're the one who's missing out
but you won't notice

4. Roy rode into Houston on the 15th of July
they brought him in to help clean up the town
He worked the Exxon building down at 21st and Main
from the 42nd floor down to the ground


5. Shall I shy down? that's boring. snoring
I'd like to teach me to sing in perfect harmony
And I'd like to change the world.
It's easier than changing me


(I recognize this song by the sound, not the lyrics, myself, but it's also obscure)

6. People pointing, finger-painting the world
Leaving me their silouette on my life
And I'm filling in the negative space with
positively everything

8. Thursday afternoon you cast a shadow 'round my room. The breeze moved the curtains and lifted my perfume into the air and danced with lazy curls in your hair. The sun was in the sky like pink champagne and it glistened in your eyes all day.

(I googled this and apparently it doesn't have line breaks.)

10. Swaz hie gat umbe
daz sint allez megede
die wellent an man
alle disen sumer gan


(and all of a sudden I'm one of the top google hits for some forms of these lyrics)

12. Well you like what you're given
a lot of us are standing in line
and you find that you're missing
what others thought you had all the time

13. I don't care what shirt you wear
And I don't want you to know my show
You make me feel so nice
Get off your horse and kiss me... twice

16. Little children did I tell you how the mockingbird
Called the animals together tried to say a few words
But the squirrels began to chatter and the bees began to buzz
Just the way it is just the way it was

24. Jerry's got a squeeze box
Johnny got a big drum
Tonight we'll play some music and have fun!

26. It's a crime to fall in love
Heart and mind, and soul in love
It's a crime to fall in love
So hard, so hard

28. Lumina, come and wrap around me
Lumina, take me through the snow

Eve took a train, Eve took a train
Went to see her man
Melting inside, melting away
Like butter in the pan

29. 4:15 Friday afternoon (Friday afternoon)
I took a trip on a train (Took a trip on a train)
On a train to you (Took a trip on a train)

30. I guess I'm fortunate
For you to be on my mind

I guess I'm fortunate
For you to be so kind

33. Open mine eyes that I may see
Glimpses of truth thou hast for me
Open mine eyes, illumine me
Spirit divine

What do you do for your living?
Are you forgiving, giving shelter?


37. When we wore a heart of stone
we wandered to the sea
Hoping to find some comfort there
yearning to feel free


38. In a forest pitch dark
glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into flame
like me, like me

(cuz all the HRSFen are doing it, and I don't think I've ever done a lyrics meme)

1. Put your playlist on shuffle.
2. Post the first lines to the first 30 songs to come up (along with these instructions).
3. Have people guess the songs and artists in comments to the post.
4. Post the answers to the ones people guessed correctly. A couple of days later, post the first two lines of the ones no one got and get people to guess again.
5. Repeat, adding the next line to the unguessed songs each time, until they're all guessed/you've posted the whole song/you've gotten bored/no-one's going to get the damn thing if you don't tell them.


Unlike [livejournal.com profile] occultatio I'm not excluding non-English. But then the Japanese isn't on this playlist. ;-)

Adding second lines/more context to unguessed songs
1. You dug a well
2. Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd (hey, that's what shuffled up, [livejournal.com profile] rmd)
3. You think you're denying me of something / well, i've got plenty
4. Roy rode into Houston on the 15th of July / they brought him in to help clean up the town
5. Shall I shy down? / that's boring. snoring.
6. People pointing / Finger-painting the world
7. As I was going over the Cork and Kerry mountains
8. Thursday afternoon you cast a shadow 'round my room. / The breeze moved the curtains and lifted my perfume into the air
9. One song
10. Swaz hie gat umbe / daz sint allez megede
11. Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
12. Well you like what you're given /
13. I don't care what shirt you wear / And I don't want you to know my show
14. Rik-kik-kik-kik!
15. Dear Prudence
16. Little children, did I tell you how the mockingbird / Called the animals together, tried to say a few words
17. I took a ferry to the Statue of Liberty
18. The journey home is never too long / Your heart arrives before the train
19. I'm John, Hinkley (remind me to post lyrics for you who haven't heard it who need to)
20. Sweet dreams are made of this
21. Well I tried to make it Sunday
22. Doors locked (doors locked) / blinds pulled (blinds pulled)
23. Look at all your faces
24. Jerry's got a squeeze box / Johnny got a big drum
25. Hats off, here they come
26. It's a crime to fall in love / Heart and mind, and soul in love
27. You're sweet (you're sweet) as a honey bee / but like a honey bee stings, you've gone and left my heart in pain
28. Lumina, come and wrap around me / Lumina, take me through the snow
29. 4:15 Friday afternoon (Friday afternoon) / I took a trip on a train (Took a trip on a train)
30. I guess I'm fortunate / For you to be on my mind

I'm doing an extra one for every lyric that *was* or contained the song title, because that's just lame.

31. The water is wide
32. Some folks like to get away
33. Open mine eyes that I may see / Glimpses of truth thou hast for me
34. Mademoiselles!
35. Paradise / is exactly like
36. Got a call from an old friend
37. When we wore a heart of stone / we wandered to the sea
38. In a forest pitch dark / Glowed the tiniest spark

I predict the hardest/most obscure ones are 5, 6, 12, 13, 16, 24, 29, 30, 33. If I had to guess, 12, 16, 30, and 33 will be unguessed longest. But perhaps my readers will surprise me!

answers thus far lurk beneath )
