How I feel about it all: artisticmusical
Soundtrack: Charlie Dore - Pilot of the Airwaves
I'm not sure how to do this meme. 20 entries? 25? I dunno. The premise, I think, is to take songs off of my playlist, quote random lyrics from them, and let people guess. So I'll do it, with 25, since I have such a large, um. Playlist. *waggles voluminous MP3 collection* I could do more. And. I encourage songdog and patchfires to do this meme. Also starflowers and nmalfoy. If you get it right, I'll credit you. *g* First one in gets the rubber chicken.

Oh, and I'm only crediting people who guess the title AND artist (original or a cover).

Here goes, randomly, from my playlist, which is almost every song on this computer.

8. It’s a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken...perhaps they’re better left unsung. The Grateful Dead - "Ripple" nmalfoy

9. ...how could I not let anybody know how sweet it is to call your name

10. Let's haul ass before the baby gets burned Bonnie Raitt - "Papa Come Quick (Jody and Chico) "misscora

11. That's an age-old story; everybody knows that's a warn-out song

12. See the children of the earth who wake to find the table bare. See the gentry in the country riding off to take the air. Gordon Lightfoot - "Don Quixote" nmalfoy

13. Clearing webs from the hovel; a blistered hand on a handle of a shovel Indigo Girls - "Hammer and a Nail" heinous_bitca, with credit to falconcat for an almostalmost.

15. We shall survive, let us take ourselves along where we fight our parents out in the streets to find who's right and who's wrong Elton John - "Bennie and the Jets" misscora

16. It's your world, now, I can't refuse, I never had so much to lose Garth Brooks' cover of Billy Joel's "Shameless". nmalfoy

You're the one who's supposed to know her way around...

I'm gonna answer all these tomorrow, and credit you for a lot. I just. I can't believe you GOT this one. This was THE obscure song.

I adore Glen Campbell, the poor man. So incredibly talented.

ANd..."Mellow" is also Elton.

Re: You're the one who's supposed to know her way around...

What can I say? there's too much music out there and not enough money or storage space for all the CDs I want!

People have done well on mine but no one's gotten the 50's stuff. I see I'm going to have to educate all of you.
