Songs For Whoever

December 12th, 2004 (01:14 am)

It's the 25 Lines Meme! 25 random lines from songs, so guess the song title and the artist and leave it in a comment (gacked from gilathief).

1. I've crossed deserts for miles, Swam water for time, Searching places to find, A piece of something to call mine (As guessed by speakr2customrs)

2. You yell, I yell, everybody yells, Got neighbors across the street sayin "Who the hell?!?" Finally recognised by Anonymous and pooka_belle

3. We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully pretty! Oh, you know that I'd do anything for you... (speakr2customrs)

4. In touch with the ground, I'm on the hunt I'm after you, Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found (empressvesica)

5. Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity (empressvesica)

6. When the chips are down I'll be around, With my undying, death-defying Love for you (speakr2customrs)

7. I feel good when things are going wrong, I only listen to the sad sad songs (empressvesica!)

8. Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet, Success has been so easy for you (speakr2customrs)

9. We're all someone's daughter, We're all someone's son,How long can we look at each other, Down the barrel of a gun? (speakr2customrs)

10. I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song, I'm twenty-two now, but I won't be for long (speakr2customrs)

11. To find myself again, My walls are closing in, I've felt this way before, So insecure (speakr2customrs)

12. Party hats, Simple enough clear, Comprehende savvy understand, Do you hear? (speakr2customrs)

13. I'm all out of faith, This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed, Lying naked on the floor (speakr2customrs in the end, but gilathief was close)

14. Gonna start the revolution from my bed, Cos you said the brains I have went to my head (speakr2customrs)

15. At school they taught me how to be, So pure in thought and word and deed (speakr2customrs)

16. This kettle is boiling over, I think I'm a banana tree, Oh dear (Woot! BIG points for annibug)

17. Separate your right from wrongs, Come and sing a different song, The kettle's on so don't be long, Mon cher (speakr2customrs)

18. You think you're a genius, you drive me up the wall, You're a regular original, a know-it-all (Guessed correctly by the talented gilathief)

19. I have a secret to tell, From my electrical well, It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells (mynuet)

20. The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky, It fades to the distance. (speakr2customrs)

21. Have a banana, have a whole bunch, It doesn't matter what you had for lunch (southerndave)

22. And all the world is football-shaped, It's just for me to kick in space (eventually guessed by speakr2customrs)

23. She rocked out to Wham, not a big Limp Bizkit fan, thought she’d get a hand on a member of Duran Duran (speakr2customrs)

24. Look at your watch now, You're still a super hot female (speakr2customrs)

25. Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes, They got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses (The talented empressvesica got this, but then she should! ;) )

No cheating and Googling... ;) Enjoy!


Much frantic editing later : I don't think anyone's got 2, 16 or 22 yet. Congratulations to everyone! You're all a LOT better at this than I thought. Or I'm a lot more mainstream than I thought. Hmmmm...

You do realise that this is only going to make me pick much harder lines next time, right?

I'm so tempted to give you no 13, but it's not quite there.

18, on the other hand is spot on! Congrats!

Thanks Shar, glad to know I am not the only one who doesn't care for that new Gwen Stefani song... of course it is one of those get stuck in your head songs, making it borderline loathsome...
