    Step 1: Open up whatever MP3 program you use and add every song in your collection.
    Step 2: Put it on random.
    Step 2: Post lyrics from the first 50 songs that are played, no matter how embarassing.
    Step 4: Strike/bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
