My selections for the iPod Shuffle Game

(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.

1 Once I had myself a good woman but I just didn’t treat her right

2 Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat

3 Reality, it burns – the way we’re living is worse

4 When I get high, I get high on speed

5 I know where you’re goin’, ’cause I see where you’ve been

6 Times are tough for English babies

7 The stars will be fading soon

8 Games, I never used to play

9 Guess your old enough to know kids out on the east coast

10 Tell me one more time the reason why you must leave

11 I’m coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine

12 I tried to reach you but I could not find the time

13 If I’d known how I’d feel know, I never would have spent the night

14 Close the door, put out the light.

15 Tough is as she does won’t you slump on over and stir my shuffle down

16 I still don’t know what I was waiting for

17 She said, darling I’m in love with your mind

18 Snowy nights and Christmas lights, icy windowpanes

19 Hey, this life is never fair

20 Have mercy baby on a poor girl like me

21 Anyone caught speaking Esperanto is thought crazy or headed for jail

22 I took a record of pretty music

23 You know if you break my heart i’ll go, but i’ll be back again

24 Hold on to your hat, hold on to your heart

25 Smeared black ink, your palms are sweaty

(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!)
