From montrealais:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 2.5: Eliminate songs that use their titles AS first lines
Step 3: Star the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game, post your own.
Step 6: After a week, any songs left, I will add the next line.

Honestly, I don't know half the songs in this list, but since I just rip whatever CD I have sitting in front of me, here's a peek into the randomness that is me:

  1. Beautiful girl, lovely dress, high school smiles, oh yes - "Gone Daddy Gone," Gnarls Barkley
  2. In a world we call our home, there's lots of room to roam - "Rhythym Section Want Ad," They Might Be Giants
  3. Bottle of white, bottle of red, perhaps a bottle of rose instead - "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant," Billy Joel
  4. Watch them run, watch them fall, watch them try to catch a ball - "Special Olympics," Stephen Lynch
  5. The traveller is always leaving town, he never has the time to turn around
  6. In the quiet silence that comes out I turned off the lightswitch
  7. This is where the party ends I can't stand here listening to you - "Your Racist Friend," They Might Be Giants
  8. Will you pass on over, will you all pass over, will you pass on over and join the lord
  9. Something grabbed ahold of my hand, I didn't know what had my hand - "Fingertips," They Might Be Giants
  10. What did you do America, they're after you America
  11. You're the love of my life, but it cuts like a knife, and I feel like I'm being mislead
  12. I've travelled many a mile and haven't found a home
  13. My eyes with your vision, my choice is always your decision
  14. Everybody's got a million questions, everybody wants to know the score
  15. Frosty the supervisor lives by himself - "Hearing Aid," They Might Be Giants
  16. Oh I come from a land from a faraway place, where the caravan camels roam - "Arabian Nights," from the "Aladdin" soundtrack
  17. Everything you say is lost out in the cold, a distant memory of the times I've been alone
  18. At first I was afraid, I was petrified - "I Will Survive," Gloria Gaynor (from the "Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" soundtrack)
  19. If I had a hammer I'd build a house for two, and if I had a sailing ship I'd take a trip with you
  20. As soon as I have saved a little nest egg I hope to ask you, dear, will you be mine
Bonus couple more:

  1. When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights and curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
  2. I've got twelve nominations, a half dozen oscars, nine cars and three ex-wives to show
  3. You've got the cool water when the fever runs high
  4. While in these days of quiet desperation, as I wander through the world in which I live
  5. I never cared much for moonlit skies, I never wink back at fireflies
  6. Who's that waddling down the street, it's just me 'cause I love to eat - "Grapefruit Diet," Weird Al Yankovic
  7. I'm dreaming tonight of a place I love even more than I usually do - "I'll Be Home For Christmas," Johnny Mathis
I find it odd that certain artists, who I really don't listen to all that often, showed up more than once. Weird.
