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.
