Song Lyrics thing
ignore me!
Taking five minutes to keep from going crazy trying to figure out why this thing won't link, i'm posting lyrics for you all to guess at, as chosen by my mp3 player. If the first line contains the name of the song, it's been skipped

1. Almost doing things we used to do/ There's a girl here and she's almost you
2. This is where the party ends/ I can't stand here listening to you
3. sometimes i think this cycle never ends/ we slide from top to bottom then we turn and climb again
4. I am Francisco Vasquez Garcia/I am welcome to Almeria
5. I'm sorry about the sun/How could I know that you would burn?
6. One summer evening drunk to hell/I stood there nearly lifeless
7. She don't wear no pants and she don't wear no tie/Always on the ball, she's always on strike
8. Rows of houses, all bearing down on me/I can feel their blue hands touching me
9. I will light the match this mornin, so I wont be alone/Watch as she lies silent, for soon night will be gone
10. Well the year of the redneck mama/ it was announced by the sight of a comet
11. This is a public service announcement/ With guitar
12. I cant explain glacial motion/Or why los angeles dont drop into the ocean
13.When you're stuck like glue/When you need some goo
14. Listen young people I'm 74/And I plan to live 60 or 70 more
15.Was on one cold winter's night/And the wind blew across the wild moor

2 is TMBG - Racist Friend
8 is Radiohead - Street Spirit

Yeah, not much overlap with you either.

I am shamed by my non-getting of #11.

(Deleted comment)
12. Naked and Famous -- PUSA
13. Vaseline - Elastica
14. Do not go quietly - Morphine

somehow I knew you'd get 13 and 14.

But do you know who the mysterious "Dan Abnormal" that plays on Elastica's album is?

you guys do, so i don't have to.

but i bet it's whatshisname from that other band. b/c that would be the obvious answer.

9. pearl jam - indifference

all the others I knew are taken

Man, that and #2 were all I would have picked out.

On the other hand, if I did this, how many on my f-list would pick out a mix of Manowar and Duke Ellington lyrics? :)

Wait, Duke Ellington had lyrics?

#7 is The Replacements, "Waitress In The Sky". (And I knew #8 and #13, but folks already got those.)

10. Cracker - 100 Flower Power Maximum
