So my friend Andrew posted this game on Facebook recently, and despite my pretty vast mental lyric database I was pretty stuck for the answers. I figure my own collection is maybe a bit easier to recognize, though, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Two things though; the songs below are culled from what I have on my iPod right now (I’m constantly switching albums, so I’m not necessarily the hugest fan of what might be below), and I decided to cut it short at 20 songs. Outside of that, here it is:
- Put your music player on shuffle.
- Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
- Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
- Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
- If you like the game, post your own.

09 “Just yesterday morning, they let me know you were gone. Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you…”
10 “It’s the consequence of privileged information. You can run, you can hide, but light will find a way.”
11 “So when she lays down, it’ll be with me. Lord, she’ll lay down with me.”
12 “I hate to see you cry, lying there in that position.”
13 “Does the shadow live forever? Will this graveyard be the dance floor for these corpses?”
14 “So our open wounds will bleed until our veins run dry, now we have to take this thorn and tear it from our side.”
