You know I love my iPod. You know I love memes. You know I love quizzes that compel you to comment. How could I resist an iPod-shuffle-meme-lyric-quiz? Thanks to Alison for this one!

The Rules:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (I got to 35 before the baby woke up)
Step 3: Bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.

And, after seeing what the iPod coughed up, I am adding Step 6: Do not mock my taste in music!

  1. Baby we can talk all night But that ain’t getting us nowhere: Meatloaf – Two out of three ain’t bad
  2. My friend assures me, “It’s all or nothing.”
  3. Love makes me treat you The way that I do: Billie Holliday – Baby Ain’t I Good to You

  4. Come out Virginia, don’t let me wait: Billy Joel – Only the Good Die Young
  5. Summer has come and passed The innocent can never last: Green Day – Wake me up when September Ends
  6. Throw away the radio suitcase That keeps you awake: Our Lady Peace – Clumsy

  13. I can see her lyin back in her satin dress: Gordon Lightfoot – Sundown
  14. The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground: Beautiful Day – U2
  15. How do you document real life When real life is getting more Like fiction each day: Rent soundtrack
  16. I’m trying to tell you something about my life, Maybe give you insight between black and white: INdigo Girls – Closer to Fine
  17. Take me out tonight, Where there’s music and there’s people: The Smiths – There is a light that never goes out
  18. Stayed awake all night toss and turnin’, Now my blood shot eyes are burnin’
  19. Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go: Ramones – I wanna be sedated
  20. Standing in the dock at Southampton, Trying to get to Holland or France: Beatles – Ballad of John and Yoko
  21. Everyone who sees you thinks you should be smiling: TPOH – Hard to Laugh
  22. When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school,
    It’s a wonder I can think at all: Paul Simon – Kodachrome

  24. At home drawing pictures of mountain tops with him on top: Pearl Jam – Jeremy

Oooh, I’m the first! Yeah.

6. – Green Day: Wake Me When September Ends
10. – Rod Stewart: Maggie May
19. – The Ramones: I Want to be Sedated
27 – Cyndi Lauper: True Colours (I know there are a bunch of remakes, but I figure you are a girl of the 80s, it’s got to be the original)

A bunch of them seem so familiar, but I just can’t seem to figure them out. Much easier than the movie one. I didn’t get any of those!

Actually, step #6 is “Tell Dani we have a lot of the same taste in music.”

Of the ones not claimed yet:
16. Closer to Fine — Indigo Girls
20. Not sure of song name . . . — John Lennon
22. You may be right — Billy Joel

33. Sounds like Bruuuuuce though I can’t be sure.

My captcha is “collegians ex” which is appropriate because most of my music is stuff I got in college . . .

Is it cheating if I look in my own iTunes for the name when I recognize the song?

20. The Ballad of John and Yoko — The Beatles

14 trixie April 24, 2008 at 7:51 am

You have “Total Eclipse of the Heart” on your ipod?
I like you more every day 🙂

15 Mad Hatter April 24, 2008 at 8:32 am

Late to the party. I’ll take #34. Sir Duke. Stevie Wonder.

Now I think you need to add a few more chicks to your i-pod. Might I recommend Liz Phair, Amy Winehouse, Feist and Jann Arden?

16 Susan April 24, 2008 at 8:33 am

I wish I had gotten here sooner, because I know a bunch of the ones already guessed.

#34. Sir Duke–Stevie Wonder

17 DaniGirl April 24, 2008 at 8:54 am

Mad, how funny that you noticed the testosterone tendency in my playlists. Hmmm, the iPod didn’t cough up any Jann Arden (one of my fave songs evah is Good Mother) or Sarah McLachlan or Holly Cole, of which I have lots. And you’re right, I’ve been meaning since the Junos to add some Feist. But that would taint my anti-millennial music bias, no?

18 Lynn April 24, 2008 at 9:04 am

17 — The Smiths — There Is a Light That Never Goes Out ??? Maybe?

19 Alyssa April 25, 2008 at 8:01 am

3. Diana Krall; Gee Baby ain’t I good to you


3. Nat King Cole; Gee Baby ain’t I good to yo

20 DaniGirl April 25, 2008 at 8:55 am

Close enough, Alyssa. I have a Billie Holiday version, but I’m sure it’s been covered hundreds of times!

21 Sara November 20, 2008 at 2:38 am

2. Anna Begins – Counting Crows
