Musical Meme and Contest

I got this from Sherry over at Semicolon a few weeks ago and couldn't resist. How fun is this?

Instructions for me: Access your iPod, Media Player or music storage device of choice, set it to random, and post the opening lyrics to the first 10 songs that come around, then let the friends-list guess the songs and artists (or songwriters, if you will). Offer fabulous prizes if do-able; if not, offer virtual Hershey’s kisses or somethin’.

And the instructions for you: Guess away, and have fun. Just refrain from peeking at the comments until you’ve made your guesses, because otherwise that’s JUST NOT RIGHT. And, uh, if you’ve WRITTEN the song in question, maybe you should bypass it.

Good luck. If anyone gets one right, I might just send you a prize from the Prize Box. Simply post a comment with at least one correct songtitle and you're entered! That's it, so now go tell your friends. And if anyone gets 10 right I'll give you 2 prizes! All you have to do is enter before December 18th, 2007.

A Note to those who undertake this challenge: I have a VERY eclectic taste in music. So good luck! O.o Also, I sometimes omitted little “la la la”s, etc. that came before the lyrics. And PLEASE resist looking them up in Google or similar sites. That just takes the fun out of it.

1. I've been waiting all day for ya babe
So won't cha come and sit and talk to me
And tell me how we're gonna be together always
Hope you know that when it's late at night
I Hold on to my pillow tight…

2. Sometimes I think about you
Wonder if you’re out there somewhere
thinkin' 'bout me
And would you even recognize
The woman that your little girl has grown up to be?

3. I want to know what makes your tock tick
I want to know what makes your clock click
All them gears going round and round inside your head don't make a sound
I want to know what makes your boat row
What makes your engine go, go, go, go, go, go, go

4. Done a lot of things that I'm not so proud of
Took a lot of turns that turned out wrong
That's a worn out song
Day by day, moment by moment taking my chances
Trusting my heart, It wasn't too smart

5. Imagination
Dream a fantastic dream
Use your imagination
See it in your mind
And you can find
In your imagination
Mysteries and Magic
Visions fantastic
Leading to strange and wondrous dreams

6. I took a walk around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
In the sands of time
But I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon

7. You know the words Once Upon A Time
Make you listen
There's a reason
When you dream there's a chance you'll find
A little laughter or happy ever after

8. Sometimes it seems like you’re falling
Falling out of the sky
Sometimes it feels like you’re slipping
And running out of time
And that’s when you’ve gotta throw it all away
All of the things that people say

9. You never looked so good
As you did last night,
Underneath the city lights,
There walking with your friend,
Laughing at the moon.
I swear you looked right trough me.

10. It took too long
It took too long
It took too long for you to call back
And normally I would just forget that
Except for the fact it was my birthday
My stupid birthday

And here’s a few for extra credit, since some of those were pretty hard. :-) Can you get to ten by guessing these? (Though not all these are easy either)

11. It's so strange he doesn't show
me more affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful
never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine
I'm not always on his mind

12. Moon so bright, night so fine
Keep your heart here with mine
Life's a dream we are dreaming
Race the moon, catch the wind
Ride the night to the end
Seize the day, stand up for the light

I only recognise one of these off the top of my head (though a couple sound familiar): number ten is Potential Breakup Song by Aly & AJ. Fun game!

Erin said...

Is 7 'Ever After' by Carrie Underwood?

And I knew #10 was an Aly and AJ song but I simply couldn't think of the title....!

Erin said...

Ugh! No! I just googled it and it's Music In Me from HSM2. :( I *knew* I'd just heard it somewhere....

*so much for that attempt* lol

Alyssa F said...

That's okay. You're still entered! :-)

I wish it was Ever, Ever after by Carrie Underwood. I really need to buy that song.

BTW, I'm surprised you didn't recognize #3

Erin said...

Oh! Thanks!

#3...*googles* Eeek! It's Ryan Shupe! You know, I don't think I've heard that song of theirs...

Alyssa F said...

Really? It's a good one. :-) It's on their Dream Big CD.

Erin said...

I only have their Live CD and then the single 'Dream Big'. I really want that CD though!

Alyssa F said...

It's a good CD. I really want their Live one, but it's really hard to find.

#6 is Kryptonite by Three Doors Down.

#7 is "You are the Music in Me" from HSM2 Actually, the opening (starting with the "Na na na") has been stuck in my mind lately until it was replaced by "Breaking Free".

And that's all I know.

But I think I'll do this. :D

I've been snooping around your blog for a while; I enjoy reading it. :D

Alyssa F said...

Correct! You're entered. :-)
Welcome to the blog!

#1 JoJo - Leave,
#5 Sounds like a Disney song
#6 3 Doors Down - Kryptonite
#7 High School Musical - Music in Me
#9 Faith Hill - Like We Never Loved At All
#10 Aly & AJ - Potenial Break Up song
#11 I only know it's from Aida because my school did the play. Don't remember the title.

Do we get partial credit? Haha. For all the blank ones I'm guessing it's by Disney.

You've done the best so far. Congrats, you're entered!
