May 4th.

Music meme time again thanks to St. Dickeybird (I don't want to work) .. Really though I just want to see if people can stick around long enought to play. Good Luck.

Step 1: Put your iPod /Tunes or MP3 player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) 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.

1/ Bob Dylan"Subterranean Homesick Blues"
Johnny's in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I'm on the pavement
Thinking about the government

2/ Rancid "Time Bomb"
If you wanna make the move then you better come in
it's just the ability to reason that wears so thin

3/ I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But It's home to me and I walk alone

"Sai Sivanesan said... 3 - Green Day / Boulevard Of Broken Dreams"

4/ Breakin’ rocks in the hot sun
I ****** the *** and the law won (twice)

"zerodoll said... #4 is pretty obvious, The Clash, I Fought the Law"

5/ I see trees of green,red roses too.
I see them bloom for me and you.
and I say to myself what a ********* *****.

Paul "D'oh! OK, #5 is Louis Armstrong, Wonderful World." I've got the Ramones version.

6/ Green DayHitchin’ a ride
Hey mister, where you headed? Are you in a hurry?
I need a lift to happy hour Say oh no

7/ The Clash - Four Horsemen
Well they were given the grapes that go ripe in The sun
That loosen the screws at the back of the tongue
But they told no one where they had begun-

8/ The Pogues - "The Irish Rover"
On the Fourth of July, 1806 We set sail from the sweet cove of Cork
We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks For the Grand City Hall in New York

9/ Sam Roberts - "Where have all the good people gone"
Oh, the Milky Way has gone a little sour
The leaves dried and the flower fell away

10/ Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, ********
Speak the rhythm on your own
Speak the rhythm all alone, ********

"Sai Sivanesan said... 10 - ******** = spoonman. (this one drove me insane till I spoke the lines aloud twice)"

11/ There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief

(Almost - "zerodoll said... Ack, #11 is Jimi Hendrix but what song..." ????)Paul says "#11 is All Along The Watchtower"

12/ Harry Nilsson - Coconut
Brother bought a *******, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for the lime

13/ Darling you gotta let me know
Paul again says "#13 is Should I Stay Or Should I Go, by The Clash."

14/ Ted Nugent - "Free for all"
Never before have I turned on you
You look too good to me
Your beady eyes, they could cut me in two
And i just can't let you be

14/ Neil Young - "Southern Man"
******** *** better keep your head
Don't forget what your good book said

15/ David Bowie - Suffragette City
Hey man, ah leave me alone you know
Hey man, well Henry, get off the phone, I gotta

16/ Bedouin SoundClash - Jeb Rand
*** ****, running from bullets of his past
Jumping, from rock to rock, just out of grasp
Orphan boy, coming from ships across the sea
Memory is what you know not what you see

17/ The Pogues - "And the band played Waltzing Matilda"
When I was a young man I carried my pack
And I lived the free life of a rover
From the Murrays green basin to the dusty outback
"Sai Sivanesan said... 17 - tough one, but is this part of the intro to - Monty Python's the Lumberjack song..." Good one but no cigar.

18/ Nirvana - The man who sold the world
We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend

19/ When I’m out walking I strut my stuff yeah I’m so strung out
I’m high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

"zerodoll said... Oh, wait. #19 Violent Femmes, Blister in the Sun"

20/ Iggy Pop & the Stooges - Search and Destroy
I'm a street walking cheetah
with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
