(Warning: time-wasting internet music meme!)
My friend Steve Pick uploaded up his version of this game on his Facebook page this morning. I got one out of 25 and wondered what eccentric collection of tunes would appear if I did the same thing. With over 21,000 tracks to choose from, I figured it would be interesting. So here they are – good luck!
Here’s the rules I followed:
Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the 1st 25 songs no matter how embarrassing
Step 3: Strike through once someone guesses both the artist and the track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing, looking up the lyrics is CHEATING.
Step 5: If you like the game post your own
Post your guesses in the comments section below – I’ll update as often as I can.

(FYI, no way I would get a lot of these without the answers – I just put the list together and can’t remember some of them!)
