Music meme for funsies

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or similar media player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line or two of lyrics for the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

Good luck, some of these are pretty obscure.
(D-rok, you should pwn this!)


1.  My name is Mary Magdalen
     I come from Palestine
     Please excuse these rags I'm in
     I've fallen on hard times
 
lolacat: Cry, Cry, Cry - The Ballad of Mary Magdalene

2.  Oh Sylvia
     Sylvia Plath
     Soaked in the bathtub
     While I was pushing drugs with my dad

3.  When love is fresh
     Like web we mesh
     Nothing felt better than
     Your flesh against my flesh

4.  We're goin' down the road
     Towards tiny cities made of ashes
     I'm gonna hit on your face
     I'm punch you in your glasses

5. My stupid mouth
    Has got me in trouble
    I've said to much again

6.  Step one you say we need to talk 
     He walks you say sit down it just a talk
     Smiles politely back at you
     You stare politely right on through

7.  Well you've got the perfect disguise and you're looking ok
     From the bottom of the best to the worst well what can I say
     Cause you cocked your head to shoot me down
     And I dont give a damn about you or this town no more

8. One two three four
     tell me that you love me more
     Sleepless, long nights
     That's what my youth was for

9.  Sometimes i get the feeling
     Thant I won't be on this planet 
     For very long

10.  Mis-shapes, mistakes, misfits.
       Raised on a diet of broken biscuits, oh we don't look the same as you,
       we don't do the things you do, but we live around here too, 
       Oh really.

11.  Her name is Yoshimi
       She's a black belt in karate
       Working for the city
       She has to discipline her body
lolacat: The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots

12. The stars above shine down below
       The fever you hold on this night
       Deathly cold

13. Now if you can stand
       I would like to take you by the hand
      And go for a walk
      Past people as they go to work

14. A warning sign
      I missed the good part, then I realized
      I sarted looking and the bubble burst
      I started looking for excuses
lolacat: Coldplay - Warning Sign

15. Your body may be gone
       I'm gonna carry you in
       In my head in my heart in my soul

16. He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down 
      I'm gonna put six feet underground
      He said i'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall
      Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls 
lolacat: Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head


17. Everything that keeps me together is falling
       I've got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over
       My boss just quit the job said going out to find blind spots
       And he'll do it.

18. I wrote song 
      Two hours before we met
      I didn't know your name
      Or what you looked like yet.

19. Light 
       And day
       Is more than you’ll say
       Cause all
       My Feelings
       Are more 
       Than I can let by

20. Every street is dark
       And folding out mysteriously
       Where lies the chance we take to be

21. What you gonna do
      When the walls burn down
      What you gonna do when the black ash
      Flies from your mouth

22. I can't get to sleep
      I think about the implications
      Of diving in too deep
      And possibly the complications

23. If I told you that I was thinking of moving east,
      Would you save a place for me?
      I'll come home cause it's worse that I expected.

24. I gotta move,
      While the streets ahead are sunny
      Fall in love with some honey.
     Oohh mama, I gotta move.

25. I thought I was smart
      I thought I was right 
      I thought it better not to fight
      I thought there was a virtue, in always being cool 
lolacat: The Flaming Lips - Fight Test
