Name that tune!

I saw this fun game over on Mandy's blog and knew I had to play it for you all!

If you like music you will have fun trying to figure out the songs to the lyrics that I am going to post.

First things first....if you want to play on your blog here are the rules:

Step 1: Put your ipod on shuffle.

Step 2: Post the first line or two (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 25 songs that play. **If the first line had the title in it, I blanked it out.**

Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
(I'm not sure I can strike through my words so I will highlight them and write the song as they are picked).

Here goes: (Wow...only three weren't guessed...Good job everyone!)

1. I wake up every evening, with a big smile on my face, And it never feels out of place. (Gives you hell - All American Rejects)

2. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot, With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot.  (Big Yellow Taxi - my version is sung by the Counting Crows - my favorite band)

3. In the day, In the night, Say it right, Say it all (Say It Right - Nelly Furtada...duh, didn't even realize I included the name of the song!!)

4. I guess I just lost my husband, I don't know where he went. (So What - Pink)

5. An old man turned ninety-eight, He won the lottery and died the next day (Ironic - Alanis Morissette)

6. Well I went to bed in Memphis, And I woke up in Hollywood (Steve McQueen - Sheryl Crow)

7.This here is the place I will be staying., There isn't a number. you can call the pay phone. (no one guessed this one and it is probably because no one could ever figure out what he was saying!!  The Sidewinder sleeps tonight - REM)

8. Strumming my pain with his fingers, Singing my life with his words, (Killing Me Softly - my version is by the Fugees)

9. After seven days He was quite tired so God said: "Let there be a day Just for picnics, with wine and bread" (God Shuffled His Feet - Crash Test Dummies)

10. I took my love and I took it down, Climbed a mountain then I turned around (Landslide - my version is by the Dixie Chicks)

11. If you ain't got no money take yo'broke ass home (Glamorous - Fergie)

12. I've been cheated by you since I don't know when, So I made up my mind it must come to an end (Mama Mia - my version is from the movie sountrack)

13. It's gettin' late , I'm making my way over to my favorite place, I gotta get my body moving shake the stress away (no one guessed this one: Don't stop the music - Rhianna)

14. I'm holding on your rope, Got me ten feet off the ground, And I'm hearing what you say (Apologize - Timberland)

15. When i find myself in times of trouble, Mother mary comes to me (Let it be - Beattles)

16. How come you're always such a fussy young man? Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran (Eat It - Weird Al.....gotta have kids to enjoy this CD)

17. Well I shuffled through the city on the Fourth of July, Had a firecracker waiting to blow, Breaking like a robber who was making his way (New York - Ryan Adams)

18. I used to rule the world, Seas would rise when I gave the word, Now in the morning I sleep alone (Viva la Vida - Coldplay)

19. Words like violence, Break the silence, Come crashing in (Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode)

20. Dearly beloved, We are gathered here today, To get through this thing called "life" (Let's Go Crazy - Prince)

21. Beauty queen of only eighteen, She had some trouble with herself, He was always there to help her (She will be loved - Maroon 5)

22. Not a day goes by I don't think about you, You left your mark on me it's permanent a tattoo, Pierce the skin and the blood runs through (no one guessed this one! It is: Right on time - Lucinda Williams)

23. To the left, To the left (Irreplaceable - Beyonce)

24. Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights, Stand the heroes waiting for your cries. So many times you did not bring this on yourself,  (Citizen Solider - 3 Doors Down)

25. Getting born in the state of Mississippi, Poppa was a copper and my momma was a hippie, (Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Last but not least
Happy New Year!
I will post all the answers tomorrow!

I am so out of the loop when it comes to music. The only one I know is #16 - Eat It by Weird Al Yankovic (sp?) I used to love him! I was a big Dr. Demento fan when he was on the radio.

A&T were listening to Weird Al (Eat It!) as though it were something new... :-) I still know the words to "Another One Rides the Bus." Pathetic! I put "Maybe Vader Someday Later" on my kids blog a while back...
That was a fun game!
