That mp3 player meme

Via [personal profile] oursin and [personal profile] owlfish...

To be honest, I'm hopeless at recognising lyrics out of context and I don't think I'd get most of these myself. At a guess, I think I'd only reliably recognise about three -- and they're on my iPod! But some of them are classics and might be familiar. I have cheated slightly in skipping most of the Welsh songs that came up, but I've left one, just to tease you.



Edited to add: I have now updated the list to show all the correct guesses, mostly, it has to be said, from the LJ side. :)

But thanks to everyone for playing.




Instructions

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines of the first 20 songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals, but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration.
