Lilith Fair-ish...and then some

Grabbed this from cnbgirl who grabbed it from Videoke Queen and, taking the existence of one of these song's lyrics on the web as a sign that I should proceed, sure. Yesterday's vacation leave was too uneventful to blog anyway.

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play!
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play!
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from!
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly!

I listen to everything by the bulk so it should be easy. And the title should be enough clue.

1. We skipped the light fandango/turned cartwheels 'cross the floor/I was feeling kinda seasick/but the crowd called out for more. Annie Lennox, "A Whiter Shade of Pale"

2. Never knew it could be so wrong/Why'd it take me so long just to find/The friend that was there all along. Boyzone, "Picture of You"

3. When the bridge is between us/We'll have nothing to fear/We will run through the sunlight/And you'll meet me halfway. Kevyn Lettau, "Bridges"

4. The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,/Turned around backwards so the windshield shows/Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse/Still, it’s so much clearer/I forgot my shirt at the water’s edge/The moon is low tonight. REM, "Nightswimming"

5. Of course I feel betrayed, but that's the way it goes, everyone knows./Trying to make you love me again, crying at your door just to hold you once more.

6. You don't even have to try, it comes easy for you/The way you move is so appealing/it could make me cry. Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians, "Good Times"

7. For your kindness I'm in debt to you/For your selflessness, my admiration/For everything you've done, you know I'm bound, I'm bound to thank you for it. Natalie Merchant, "Kind and Generous"

8. End of the day remember the ways/We were so close to the edge/Wonder how we've made it through and then/End of the day remember the way/Step so close to the edge/Remember it was me and you. Lighthouse Family, "High"

9. This is not some bible like "On the Road"/It's just a song about coming home. Everything But The Girl, "One Place"

10. I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain/I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again. Dido, "Thank You"

11. I sat on a mountainside with peace of mind/I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear/Walked for days with no one near/And I return as chained and bound to you. Sophie B Hawkins, "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover"

12. Let's go down to the water's edge/And we can cast away those doubts/Some things are better left unsaid/But they still turn me inside out. Annie Lennox, "Why"

13. You tell me I can go this far, but no more/Try to show me heaven and then slam the door/You offer shelter at a price much too dear/And your kind of love's the kind that soon disappears. Everything But The Girl, "Each and Everyone"

14. Not for the first time I looked back on all those years/Not for the last time names will ring in my ears/When there was just a gang of us storming the town by train and bus. Everything But The Girl, "Old Friends"

15. These days you might feel a shaft of light make it’s way across your face./And when you do you’ll know how it was meant to be./See the signs and know their meaning./It’s true, you’ll know how it was meant to be./Hear the signs and know they’re speaking to you. 10,000 Maniacs, "These Are Days"


16. I have a dream of an inky blue sea./You could give up your job and go there with me./I know we'd miss the football and the dancing--there's always something. Everything But The Girl, "Talk To Me Like The Sea"

17. I know your window and I know it's late/I know your stairs and your doorway/I walk down your street and past your gate/I stand by the light at the four-way. Everything But The Girl, "Downtown Train"

18. Lança menina, lança todo esse perfume/Desbaratina, não dá pra ficar imune/Ao teu amor que tem cheiro de coisa maluca. Rita Lee, "Lança Perfume"

19. Hey Jack, now for the tricky part,/when you were the brightest star who were the shadows? 10,000 Maniacs, "Hey Jack Kerouac"

20. If lust and hate is the candy/If blood and love taste so sweet/Then we give 'em what they want. 10,000 Maniacs, "Candy Everybody Wants"

21. Do I wanna hear that you forgive me?/Do I wanna hear you're no good without me?/Am I big enough to hear that you never even even think about me?/Why should you ever think about me? Everything But The Girl, "The Heart Remains A Child"

22. We crossed the line/Who pushed who over?/It doesn´t matter to you/It matters to me. U2, "So Cruel"

23. To touch is to heal/To hurt is to steal/If you want to kiss the sky/Better learn how to kneel/On your knees, boy! U2, "Mysterious Ways"

24. Tell her she can kiss my ass/And laugh and say that you were only kidding/That way she'll know that it's really me. REM, "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite"

25. Tin roof! Rusted. The B-52's, "Love Shack"
