Lyrics Game</i></font>

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 40 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly. Remove from the list when guessed.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is cheating, and really, an awful lot of work. Also Santa will know and give you coal for Xmas.

Yup, it was the Johnny Cash version. And you're right on 23.

#36 is obvious, but the question is which cover? The cover I have happens to be Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" (which yeah, that doomsday voice and those lyrics... mmm...), but I remember seeing at least one more out there recently and I am totally failing on remembering who did it.
curgoth
Dec. 6th, 2008 02:43 pm (UTC)
Johnny Cash.

I haven't run into another cover recently, unless you count Lore's Nine Inch Noels.

Wow, other than the Johnny Cash cover of NIN I got nothin'. Truly sad.

Don't feel bad - this is my music, and I wouldn't get more than 50% here. I had to trust the internet for the lyrics to a couple because I've *never* been able to make them out clearly.

I believe #30 is "Tomb Mau Mau" by the Vampire Beach Babes.

Apart from that, I don't recognize any of the others except ones that have already been guessed.
curgoth
Dec. 6th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC)
Yup
olletho
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:58 pm (UTC)
yeah this is difficult.

I'm thinking maybe some of these deserved two lines.
:P

29 is putting me in mind of The Cure but I'm not sure.
curgoth
Dec. 6th, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
Some of them I did bring along a bit more than the first line to try to make it easier.


And The Cure is probably the right way to be thinking for 29.

Number 14 is Everyone says "Hi" by David Bowie

and I want to say number 35 is Neubauten, just because it sounds German, but really I have no other basis for that guess.
curgoth
Dec. 6th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
Correct on 14, and you're right on the band for 35.

WAIT! Also 13. Astronaut - Amanda Palmer...now you have to get the Amanda Palmer one off of mine.

10. The Cure - Not sure of the song, but I think the album it's from is Wish.

29. Love and Rockets - Ball of Confusion
curgoth
Dec. 8th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
10 - yes on both counts
29 - Nope. Though I wonder if if I have the L+R track and if it also starts with the same line. olletho seemed to think it was the Cure, and she wasn't wrong...

Ach, missed a few I knew.

16. Receiving you, the games we ever knew now

-David Bowie? Maybe?

I probably should know some of the others, but they may be lyrics I can't comprehend...
curgoth
Dec. 9th, 2008 03:19 am (UTC)
Hmm. There are a few you might get if you paid close attention to the CDs I burned you, way back when.

16., though, is not Bowie.
