I saw this on both Whizgidget‘s and Erin‘s blogs. I think I knew one of the songs on Erin’s blog.
So, here are the rules!
Step 1: Put your iPod or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the 1st line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. And it doesn’t have to be perfect if you can’t understand the lyrics word for word.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING
Okay, I’m afraid it’s really eclectic…I will seriously be amazed if anyone can get all these even by cheating…(there is filk in here folks!)
