Having just joined MOG I thought I’d try out their random first line lyrics game. If anyone guesses more than a couple of the 21 below I’ll be more than amazed (I’m not sure I know them and they’re on my itunes!)

Here were my instructions:

Step 1: Put your music player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 21 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song(Not strictly true… who knew I had so many instrumentals!)
Step 3: Post and let everyone guess what SONG AND ARTIST the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly
(No lyric hunting! That’s cheating!)
Step 5: After doing the 1st 21, listen to one more random song and post it as your title.

The 22nd belongs to Antony and The Johnson’s torch song take on ‘Crazy In Love‘.

Antony and the Johnsons – Crazy In Love‘ (MP3)

Can anyone guess any of the 21 songs with their first lines below???? (Thanks to Mimi and Stoplight Sleep for the original posts).  I might post the tracks if they’re picked out:

Tell her to work at Tesco’s
Mam, Mam, I want some milk – Mr R.L. Burnside Criminal In(side) Me
Hanging down from my window
First man to die, for the flag we now hold high
The war zone. Who you fighting for?
Just a small town girl – ‘Don’t stop believing’ – Journey (Christopher overcomes spamkiller to guess correctly)
All that she said was true
without a word of warning the blues walked in this morning
Now the sky has started falling
Im easy just a couple of words that you got to say
Rasta man train is coming now
Everything must change, nothing stays the same
This song is dedicated to minnisota drivers
Revolution in their minds – the children start to march
Why oh Why Johnny Make You Bad So
I thought I could trust you, in the lies I try
Well the king will the take the queen
Drunken waiting for you, will you have a drink with me
what gives this mess some graceUnless It’s Kicks by Okkervil River (At last someone got one, Iain)
The snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing
If theres a heart inside your eye
