Here's a heck of a meme . . .

Step 1: Put your playlist on random.
Step 2: Pick your favourite lines from the first 25 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let people guess what song the lines come from.
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

This should be really easy for anybody who knows me.

#1 -- There are no lines, it's an instrumental. GOOD LUCK GUESSING THIS ONE! MWAHAHAHA!

#2 -- "A chance to find the phoenix for the flame." A View To A Kill, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

#3 -- "Shooting movies and the TV set." Hallucinating Elvis, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#4 -- "And there will be time for a thousand vows, a thousand promises we forgot to be realized." My Antarctica, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#5 -- "And your telephone's been ringing while you're dancing in the rain." Wild Boys, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

[This is just too fucking easy for you people, isn't it? I'm playing it fair, and that's what the playlist keeps coming up with.]

#6 -- "I sold the Renoir and the TV set, don't wanna be around when this gets out." The Reflex, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

[ps--I'm cheating by hitting the skip button once I've gotten a line in on some of these.]

#7 -- "These tiny lives mean everything."

#8 -- "And in a park the size of Wembley, we sat and waited for the stars to come."

#9 -- "So now you're on the sandlane every day, dancing with the bulls in any old way, running like a fox to keep up with me." My Own Way, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

#10 -- "I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio, still I can't escape the ghost of you." Ordinary World, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

#11 -- "All lightning bright and thunder loud, little girl dreams, safe and sound."

#12 -- "And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again." Girls On Film, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

#13 -- "Is there anybody out there trying to get through . . . my eyes so cloudy I can't see you." Planet Earth, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

[It's on RANDOM! I SWEAR to you, it's on RANDOM!]

#14 -- "Zero down to zero, come catch me as best you can."

#15 -- "So tell me here, beside the sterile sea, where is your nation now?" Edge of America, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#16 -- "I get worried sometimes that the image will shatter." Be My Icon, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#17 -- "I bought the dream, but I don't sleep no more."

#18 -- "I tried to sleep last night, but I caught you dreaming about days we used to wander away." Anyone Out There, Duran Duran, guessed by musictwig.

#19 -- "Something cuts and scars inside tonight."

#20 -- "I just wanna wrap myself in you, baby, we can tell the world we're fooling around." UMF, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#21 -- "There's a dream that strings the road with broken glass for us to hold." Is There Something I Should Know, Duran Duran, guessed by azewewish.

#22 -- "I hope the words reach the proper lips."

#23 -- "All the fear in the world, naked and shy."

#24 -- "Every hope I hold lies in my arms."

Re: Hee hee, I'm first!
You big cheater! You did all the easy ones! ;)

I'd be truly amazed if anybody managed to guess the instrumentals, but they did come up on the playlist, so, hey.

*dies laughing*

Is everything you own Duran? Just curious.

Off the top of my head of the unguessed ones (and I knew all of the guessed ones too *g*):

1 -- Throb (educated guess)
3 -- Hallucinating Elvis
4 -- My Antarctica
15 -- Edge of America
16 -- Be My Icon
20 -- UMF
21 -- Is There Something I Should Know?
25 -- Fragment (another educated guess)

Next time...do an all INXS one. *grins*

Dec. 15th, 2004 07:10 pm (UTC)
And I'm going to guess that the ones I don't know are either from the new album or they're Sylvian or Tender Idols. Just because, yes, I do know you. *g*

Ooooh, you're good. Yep, that's my playlist. I'll be adding INXS to the list eventually, but I have to dig up the CDs and plug them in first.

I need exact guesses before I cross things off.

#15 -- Edge of America, Duran Duran
#16 -- Be My Icon, Duran Duran
#20 -- UMF, Duran Duran
#21 -- Is There Something I Should Know, Duran Duran

#1 and #25 -- songs by Warren?
Dec. 16th, 2004 08:26 am (UTC)
Brenda beat ya to it.

I'm not crossing off the instrumentals until I get an exact title and artist. And I'm not even going to tell you if you're warm or cold when you guess.

GAH. He has so many...

Warren Cuccurullo: Ordinary World
Warren Cuccurullo: Suddenly Spring
Warren Cuccurullo: Tardinha
Warren Cuccurullo: Delicious
Dec. 16th, 2004 02:21 pm (UTC)
I've never heard Delicious. Darn. Is that a new one, or just one I don't have yet?

Okay, here's ONE hint--I don't have any solo Warren in my playlist.
Dec. 17th, 2004 05:29 am (UTC)
It's been up on the site for about a year - it's the demo of "N'Liten Up" (the song).

If it's not Warren or Duran, I have no clue... :)
