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 3: Bold out 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!

Note: these are not actually the first 20.  I skipped over some instrumentals (Canon in D is hard to put lyrics to) and a bunch of songs that I don’t think anybody I know has ever heard of.  These are mostly pretty well known (and very Canada centric, no great surprise).

1.  Underneath the bridge/the top has sprung a leak/and the animals I’ve trapped/have all become my pets

2.  Sometimes I feel I’m going under/you don’t feel nothing at all

3.  Disarm you with a smile/and cut you like you want me to/cut that little child/inside of me and such a part of you

4.  I guess you have to have a problem if you want to invent a contraption/first you cause a train wreck then they put me in traction

5.  Watch the band/through a bunch of dancers/quickly follow the unknown

6.  Flat on my face/I see what it takes/to cut through the bullsh*t/to cut to the chase

7.  Please could you stop the noise I’m trying to get some rest/from all the unborn chicken voices in my head

8.  Receiving department/3 a.m./staff cuts have sucked up the overage/directives are posted/no call-backs, complaints/everywhere is calm

9.  What I like about you/you hold me tight/tell me I’m the only one/wanna come over tonight? – What I Like About You – The Romantics

10.  The hours go shorter as the days go by/we never get to stop and open our eyes – Lovers In A Dangerous Time – BNL

11.  Get yourself together/let the love pour in/buy yourself a hop and pour yourself  a drink

12.  You’re gonna clean up your looks/with all the lies in the books/to make a citizen out of you

13.  Am I loud and clear/or am I breaking up/Am I still your charm/or am I just bad luck

14.  Everyone’s got their breaking point/with me it’s spiders/with you it’s me

15.  My reflection dirty mirror/is no connection to myself

16.  Save some face/you know you’ve only got one/change your ways/while you’re young

17.  Rows of houses/all bearing down on me/I can feel their blue hands/touching me

18.  Let the river run wild and free/the river of your love for me – Overflow – The Zoe Group

19.  ’twas a long and dark December/from the rooftops I remember there was snow/white snow

20.  Time is never time at all/you can never ever leave/without leaving a piece of you
