1. On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty-five songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing).
(i skipped anything i didn't know well enough to identify later.)
2. Write down one (or two) line(s) of the song. Try to avoid lines that include the title.
3. Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.
4. When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it. (Guessing correctly means the name of the song and *an* artist who has recorded that song. Some of the ones on my playlist were covers of other songs, but I'm not expecting you to randomly be able to guess the right version.)

But if that salt has lost its flavor, it ain't got much in its favor

8. Sleater-Kinney - "Combat Rock" - guessed by [ profile] forboston
Dissent's not treason but they talk like it's the same

The sidewalk bends where your house ends like the neighborhood is on its knees

10. Belle & Sebastian - "Simple Things" - guessed by [ profile] yo_y_la_luna
If you want me all you have to do
Is ask a thousand questions

Read the letter you got from the memory girl
But it takes more than this to make sense of the day

Yo sé que en los mil besos

My cat died and I quickly poured myself some gin
Did she die of old age or was it for my sins?

20. Sarah McLachlan - "Hold On" - guessed by [ profile] crocea
I lie awake and pray
that you'll be strong tomorrow

21. Fiona Apple - "Paper Bag" - guessed by [ profile] streaks
I said, "Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified
Come on put a little love here in my void"

Hangin' out with Lars on 6th street he knew I was in trouble I was feeling much like the devil

23. Carole King - "It's Too Late" - guessed by [ profile] seasons
One of us is changing
Or maybe we just stopped trying
