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.)

I want your warm, but it will only make
Me colder when it's over

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

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

9.
The sidewalk bends where your house ends like the neighborhood is on its knees

10. Belle & Sebastian - "Simple Things" - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] yo_y_la_luna
If you want me all you have to do

My cat died and I quickly poured myself some gin

Everybody asks me how she's doing, since she went away
I said, I couldn't tell you, I'm ok


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


21. Fiona Apple - "Paper Bag" - guessed by [livejournal.com profile] streaks
