I see the lyrics meme is doing the rounds again, so I'm jumping straight in cos these are always fun:

Step 1: Put your iTunes on equivalent or random.
Step 2: Post the first(-ish) line from the first 40 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.

Not sure about 19. That's close to the actual title but I don't think Click Five have ever sung it.

Well done on the others! :)

Yep, all right! :)

15. Sweet's final song from the Buffy musical. I'm not sure if it has a title (it's only five lines long), but that's what it is.
Nov. 19th, 2010 08:06 pm (UTC)
Yes! I have it on my iTunes as being called Sweet's Song (Reprise).

I'm pleased that someone got it. I thought it was funny that two people were able to get one of the songs from Once More With Feeling but not the other one!

First one is Dar Williams, right? *sings*..Cool as I am?

I'm pretty sure I should recognize more of these. D:
Nov. 21st, 2010 10:45 pm (UTC)
Yep. :)
Nov. 21st, 2010 03:44 am (UTC)
AHH. I can't believe I missed #27. I should have gotten 29 too.

33 is little lion man by Mumford and sons?
Nov. 25th, 2010 07:31 pm (UTC)
Indeed it is.

I expected you to get one of the others as well...
Nov. 28th, 2010 02:07 pm (UTC)
27 is "Suicide is Painless", the M*A*S*H theme. 14 seems familiar but i can't place it. And where's the Leonard Cohen??
Nov. 28th, 2010 10:51 pm (UTC)
Right on 27. :)

Apparently my iTunes wanted to avoid Leonard Cohen, despite having 85 tracks of his to choose from!
