Put media player on random. List the first line of the first 25 songs that come up. Make your friends guess what the song and artist are without the aid of google/Yahoo/etc. Edit and give credit when someone guesses correctly.

Note:

I don't know the artists for some of them! (always a problem when you listen to the radio more than anything else - they don't tell you who you just heard often enough)
#3 - Papa Don't Preach, madonna
#7 - Your Eyes? by... was that Phil collins? I don't know
#18 China Girl, David Bowie
#20 Baker Street, no idea
#22 Y'know, nowthat I think about it, I'm not entirely sure what the name of this one is. first thought was Go Ask Alice, but I think it's actually White Rabbit...
#24 Goldfinger, that lady who did most of the bond music :)
5th-Apr-2008 09:10 pm (UTC)

6th-Apr-2008 06:49 am (UTC)
Yep

Glad to see I'm not the only Lifehouse fan lefft in creation.
6th-Apr-2008 12:11 pm (UTC)
there is a reason that I like Lifehouse. I don't listen to them much anymore due to emotional reasons.
6th-Apr-2008 06:07 am (UTC)
Well...

#11 Hungry Like the Wolf - Duran Duran

I know you expected me to get this.

#16 You Spin me Round - Dead or Alive

#22 White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane (wasn't it?)

I recognize some of the others, but don't know the titles and artists exactly. I recognize that Bowie song but someone else already had it. Really... my issue is that nowadays radio stations don't bother to tell you what they're playing by title and artist. I used to be able to identify a song title and artist within three or four notes.
6th-Apr-2008 06:50 am (UTC)
Yep
Yep
And Yep.

If it helps, I had to google half of this stuff since I have trouble making out lyrics anymore.

25: "Creep" by Stone Temple Pilots
6th-Apr-2008 01:44 pm (UTC)
Yep.

Also known as the John Kruk song;)
6th-Apr-2008 07:39 pm (UTC)
#23 Atmosphere - Joy Division
