Music meme  
Snagged from aeron_lanart
Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
This was actually kinda hard because I have a lot of instrumental music on my playlist at the moment:
1.      Like the beat, beat, beat of the tomtom,  - Night and Day, John Barrowman & Kevin Kline kreutzmariegot the song, aeron_lanart got the artist
2.      Truth be told, the truth be told
3.      Well I’ve tried before to tell her, of the feelings I have for her in my heart - Every little thing she does is magic, John Barrowman- cookie goes to aeron_lanart
4.      Do I attract you, do I repulse you, with my queasy smile
5.      In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey - Loser, Beck – donut awarded to  anniemarefor getting that
6.      What’s the sense in sharing this one and only life - Young Hearts Run Free, Kym Mazelle – well done to  silvercobwebsfor admitting knowing the words!
7.      Another constellation dies, do what you want cos it’s your own skies
8.      Forget your troubles, come on get happy - Get Happy – Judy Garland – strangevisitor7gets a jelly baby for that
9.      Raindrops keep falling on my head - Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head, Manic Street Preachers - correctly identified by kaylashay81
10. Once upon a once in a while, it’s hard to remember to smile
11. I’ll remember forever, when I was but three
12. I turn on the tap and run some water
13.She’s a wonderful lady and she’s mine all mine
14. I tried to discover, a little something to make me sweeter - A Little Respect, Wheatus – silvercobwebsdoes it again
15. Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na - The Simpsons Theme, Green Day - with a little prodding, silvercobwebsgot it. I thought it was obvious ;-)
16. People are puppets, held together with string
17. I want you to want me, I need you to need me - I Want You to Want Me, Letters to Cleo – kaylashay81got there first, with strangevisitor7in close second :)
18. Oh, thinking about all our younger years - Heaven, John Barrowman - aeron_lanartmakes it three for three!
19. Take time for your pleasure and laugh with love
20.I sing myself to sleep

(9) Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head - the one from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?
(17) I want you to want me - Letters to Cleo (hopefully that's the version you have)
But, I don't want to be a pie,: abbeyidontlikegravy on January 29th, 2008 10:16 pm (UTC)
Yep and yep. Although its the Manic Street Preachers version of Raindrops keep falling on my head.
kreutzmarie: Serious Businesskreutzmarie on January 28th, 2008 07:30 pm (UTC)
(1) Night and Day - Ella Fitzgerald and ol' Blue Eyes both have recordings out.
The other Weird Al: JBaeron_lanart on January 28th, 2008 08:18 pm (UTC)
And so does John Barrowman and Kevin Kline. I'm guessing that version for some reason.

Everything But the Girl did it in the 1980s too, which you can hear at last fm if you're interested.

Yup, that version. Although I do have the other two as well. :)

Correct, though aeron_lanart got the singer...

#3 Every Little Thing She Does is Magic.

I'm assuming the JB version from Another Side rather than The Police.

#18 Heaven
I'm assuming JB again *g*

Gee, however did you guess? XD
anniemareanniemare on January 28th, 2008 08:24 pm (UTC)
5. Beck - Loser

A bunch of others on the tip of my brain - GAH!

Bingo! I wasn't sure anyone would get that one, so have a donut :)
I will call her George: Firefly Kaylee Yeah mestrangevisitor7 on January 28th, 2008 08:54 pm (UTC)
#17 - Cheap trick, I want you to want me
#8 - Judy Garland - Get happy - don't remeber which musical she first sang it in.

But, I don't want to be a pie,: qidontlikegravy on January 29th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
Yeppers. :)

Gah! Now I've forgotten which film it is...
Kay: green day -- boobies!silvercobwebs on January 28th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
6 - Young Hearts Run Free -- by Kim someone or other? Arg! It's on the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack!
14 - A Little Respect -- sadly I can't remember the original artist, but I know Wheatus did a cover. *faceplant*

I know 8 and 9, but they've already been guessed. :)
But, I don't want to be a pie,: deathidontlikegravy on January 29th, 2008 10:22 pm (UTC)

It was Kym Mazelle.
I was listening to the Wheatus version so you get full marks for that one. The 80s release (which I think is the original, correct me if I'm wrong) was Erasure.

*drools over icon*
But, I don't want to be a pie,: sinister dexteridontlikegravy on January 29th, 2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
Talking of your icon, it's a clue to 15 ;-)
Kay: billie joe -- well fuck yeahsilvercobwebs on January 30th, 2008 12:10 am (UTC)
Re: PS
Hee, thanks for the icon compliment, but 15 is eeeevil! Do I get a point if I make the obvious guess that's it's a Green Day song then? lol

Re: PS

how about half a point *grin*

I admit, it is evol, but like I said I had a lot of instrumentals on my playlist!

It's very recent and from a movie. If that helps at all. *runs away*
Kay: zoidberg -- squeee!silvercobwebs on January 30th, 2008 12:19 am (UTC)
Re: PS
Instrumental? Movie?
The Simpsons Movie, by any chance? ; D
Either that or Espionage from Austin Powers, but that's much less recent.

Re: PS
It was indeed The Simpsons Theme! *evil cackle* You definitely get points for that :)
