Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly in the comments.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own

I ended up with some that really didn't work well, including several instrumentals and foreign languages that I can't even begin to parse, so I included some bonus tracks at the end.

1. Let us be lovers, we’ll marry our fortunes together.
2. I saw it written and I saw it say ----- is on its way.
3. I was hell-bent on destroying my powers of concentration, while you were living like a saint.
4. Now that you’ve set everybody free, whatcha gonna do about me?
5. ----Where did you go?
6. *this one is in Hindi (I think), and I am not even going to try to get the first line down*
7. Mmmm bop! No, you're ---- (Ow!)
8. *an instrumental…this one is pretty well known and involves a Hardanger fiddle, but I think I’m going to skip it, too*
9. I believe, if you wanted to leave you would seek relief.
10. Who’s to say what’s impossible, but they forgot…
11. --- singing in the dead of night, take these broken wings and learn to fly.
12. Take away the hurt, take away the pain, come on home and live with me again.
13. On --- one autumn day, I met her first and knew.
14. You think you’ll find some mountains in western Colorado.
15. *another instrumental. moody French piano music from some movie ^.~*
16. Bear me up on --- let me hear the choir sing.
17. Dance with me my old friend, once before we go.
18. Seems like it was yesterday that I saw your face.
19. I’ve been a ---for seventeen long years, I’ve spent all my money on whiskey and beers.
20. --- is long and boring, no one can lift the damn thing.
21. --- qui tolis pecata mundi.
22. When you say Wisconsin, ---!
23. One, two, three, counting out the signs we see.
24. --- and you were a lady, would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby?
25. You better watch out, you better beware.

And a few extras to make up for the instrumentals and such.
! Let’s get together and ---!
@Hah! Another one in Hindi.
# --- Jesu pie, quod sum causa tua viae, ne me perdas illa die.
$ ---rock ---. (That is the only lyric. Ever.)
%Funny how this begins, holding court over a bottle of gin.
^This bed is on fire with passionate love.

Not doing too well on this!

2: This is driving me crazy. I . . . dammit. Gah. I remember that line, mostly because it's kind of nonsensical, but what the hell is it from? I can almost hear it.

8: I had somebody explain what a Hardanger was to me by way of The Two Towers, but I assume this isn't related to that movie's soundtrack. Or is it?

11: The Beatles, "Blackbird."

20: The Magnetic Fields, "The Book of Love."

21: Somebody's "Agnus Dei." I'm going to guess Mozart requiem?

^: James, "Laid."

8: Somebody give the boy a prize. It is, in fact, from the Two Towers soundtrack.

#2 will haunt you till you get it. :)

It will! I vividly remember that there's bad rock-singer diction involved, so that you have to sit there puzzling out what s/he's ("he's," I think) singing for a while. Blast.

You are right about that. I actually had to look up the lyric instead of just writing it down, because I wasn't sure what I was hearing.

"—pink-uh moon izon issway, 'sa pinkmoon."

(I hold Nick Drake's singing in high regard, I ought to say.)
