Shufflin' Things Up

(and not the Curly Shuffle, woob woob woob).

Here's a little game:
  • Put your music player on shuffle.
  • Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
  • Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly. (Just post a comment, and I will let that serve as the record.)
  • Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
  • If you like the game, post your own
Okay, either mine doesn't have shuffle or else I haven't figured out where shuffle is, BUT.... here goes:

  1. Every time I move I lose, when I look I'm in
  2. (spoken intro) "Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do MY thang....."
  3. If I said what's on my mind, you'd turn and walk away
  4. Yeah, it's been a long long time, you're such a sight
  5. You turn me on, you lift me up like the sweetest cup I share with you
  6. If you can just get your mind together, then come on across to me
  7. (2nd line) Light in your head and dead on your feet
  8. I'm feeling so tired, can't understand it, just had a fortnight's sleep
  9. (opening verse) Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts of men who need more than they get
  10. You know she likes to take me dancing on the outskirts of town
  11. Now I like taking off, don't like burning out
  12. (verse) It burned like a ball on fire, when the rebel took a little child bride
  13. We get it almost every night, when that moon is big and bright
  14. Everybody go on and dance if you want to, music makes your body move, well all right
  15. Talking about stealing the show, no one would know
  16. I've seen the bright lights of Memphis and the Commodore Hotel
  17. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
  18. I hear songs on the radio, they might be fast or they might be slow
  19. Though I've tried before to tell her of the feelings I have for her in my heart
  20. Pariah dogs and wandering madmen, barking at strangers and speaking in tongues
  21. Long time no see, short time for you & me
  22. What kind of trouble did I get into (gotcha moving, gotcha moving)
  23. Heartbreaker, soul shaker, I've been told about you
  24. I had myself a tall one waiting at the bar
  25. This silver bird takes me 'cross the sky
  26. Feel when I dance with you, we move like the sea
  27. You've got me so confused, and there's words I could use
  28. (1st v) Nobody's right till somebody's wrong, nobody's weak till somebody's strong
  29. Cheat the odds that made you, brave to try to gamble at times
  30. I can feel no sense of measure, no illusion as we take
Have fun!

Okay, I'm not all that swooft at guessing songs by their first lines, but I'll take a stab:

2. (spoken intro) "Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do MY thang....."

Said like only Mr. Celebrity Hot Tub Party can. The Hardest Working Jailbird in Show Business.

"Get Up (I Feel Like Being a Blogging Machine)"

6. If you can just get your mind together, then come on across to me

Obviously I'm not all that "experienced" at this game.

Move over, Rover, and let anyone else take over.

16. I've seen the bright lights of Memphis and the Commodore Hotel

"Dixie Chicken" by Little Feat.

17. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

War? Or the last eight years?

(Springsteen or Starr?)

21. Long time no see, short time for you & me

Memories of my first Summer with a driver's license. "Gemini Dream" by the Moodies.

25. This silver bird takes me 'cross the sky

Good songs. Great songs. Horrible album covers. (Gerry Rafferty - "Home and Dry")

Give me a nice F-minus. Bolivar, your witness......
