the new cool kids' survey

Why the hell not? Everybody's doing it… PS: I skipped a bunch of songs that were instrumentals or in other languages and unintelligible.

Step 1: Open up whatever MP3 program you use and add every song in your collection.
Step 2: Put it on random.
Step 3: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
Step 4: Post and let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 5: Bold the songs that someone guesses correctly.
Step 6: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1. I'm down on the water. I don't know so I don't bother
2. It's jazzy hip-hop hanging in my head heavy
3. She keeps her Moet et Chandon in her pretty cabinet (Killer Queen)
4. I've been bitten by the bug and I am coming down with oh (Fever)
5. Once in the backyard she was once like me (A Good Man Is Hard to Find)
6. At the dark end of the street that is where we always meet (The Dark End Of The Street)
7. I know a girl who thinks of ghosts (She Don't Use Jelly)
8. I'll ride your diamond ride it rough
9. I waited patiently for the Lord ("40")
10. Check it out. Check it out girl. Check it out. Bass
11. What mood is that you wear this time?
12. Please, give me a second grace (Fly)
13. I will never let you down (Dragonfly)
14. Everybody's here. Your puke stinks like me
15. Yes and no are just distinguished by distinction
16. So wide you can't get around it. So low you can't get under it
17. Sittin' here by myself waitin' a long time
18. It starts when you wake up
19. I wish you wouldn't say that (I Wish You Wouldn't Say That)
20. I am gross and perverted. I'm obsessed and deranged (I'm the Slime)

    I am sick and deranged. I have existed for years, though very little has changed. 20 is I'm the Slime by Frank Zappa. And that's a great song.

    Could #19, by any chance, be I Wish You Wouldn't Say That?

    Bizarrely enough, I listened to #6 about one second before I stumbled upon this journal... Obviously, it's The Dark End of the Street from the soundtrack to The Commitments.

    A year and a half after I post this thing, you leave an answer, and it takes me another year and a half to notice that answer. The internets are crazy.
