I think I may have a cold. I don't *want* a cold, but it reinforces my plan to spend the whole weekend resting and puttering around my house.

Used to be I couldn't do the randomize-your-music-player memes, because I had a stack of CDs that weren't on a music player, but now I have my own personal jukebox, so I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] micheinnz:

Put your music player on random.
Post the first line from the first 32 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

(I'm also leaving out the ones that have the song title as the first line -- too easy.)

I took 'first line' to mean first coherent clause, unless there wasn't one. :-) And I may have gotten some wrong. )

Congrats to [livejournal.com profile] bafleyanne for winning the lyrics-guessing contest! [livejournal.com profile] bafleyanne, if you'll send me your snailmail address, I will send you a suitably tacky prize package.

The answers are behind the cut )

The 5,000-question survey asked "What is your favorite song lyric?"

I don't have one favorite, but below are 20 of my faves. Can you guess the artist and song for each one without looking it up? Comments are screened until they're all guessed, and I'll mark the guessed ones until they're all guessed, too. The person who gets the most gets a tacky prize from me. Some should be very very easy, and few will be obscure at all to most of my friendslist, I'm guessing.

Edits: Still need 6, 10, 11, 16, 18, 20. (Some folks have guessed parts of these, but no one's gotten song/artist combined.)

Guessed so far: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19; also, yes, being anonymous is fine.

I always wanted a jukebox, growing up. It's perfect for my way of listening to things -- I want lots of songs that I like, but not always by the same artists. I hate commercials, and I don't really want to be switching 45s all day to get a mix.

Oh my gosh, do I love my new computer (my first new computer ever). I have ALL my CDs on the media player, with 100 gigs to spare, and I now have the long-awaited jukebox. I feel like the last kid on the block to have shufflable music, but here I am, all happy and shit.

Just for fun, I'm gonna list my Pandora songs for the night. It's on a kind of a hippy groove tonight, which isn't my usual favorite music, but it's working fine for me at the moment.

"Witchy Woman", Eagles (marked it "like it")
"He's A Good Face, But He's Down And Out", Dean Ford & The Gaylords (listened, but didn't mark "like" or "don't like")
"Afternoon Tea", the Kinks (listened)
"Only You Know and I Know", Dave Mason (listened)
"You Can Make Me Free", Billy Joel (wow, one of his I hadn't heard or don't remember. weird. listened, didn't mark -- kinda Queen-ish)
"Out Here On My Own", Irene Cara (marked "like it" -- it was a favorite when I was young, and it's total nostalgia)
"Theme", Shooting Star (listened)
"How", John Lennon (marked "like it")
"Cross Over To Me", Catie Curtis (the first one tonight that was already marked "like it")
"New Beginning", Tracy Chapman (already marked "like it")

And now I need to concentrate on some work stuff, so I'm turning it off.

I really like Boys Like Girls. Thanks for the pointer. Right now, "Hero/Heroine" is playing. I like it.

[livejournal.com profile] stonebender had a brilliant idea. I've been fussing because I can often not remember the name of some artist/song that I liked on Pandora, and I was using the "favorites" page to list the songs I like best, but I've deleted those and now I'm using it as a place to keep track of the stuff I want to get acquainted with. It's way cool. Now I can print it out next time I go to the music store and get stuff I've been enjoying on Pandora. My love is a genius.
