Guess the song

I stole this from someone's blog. I forget whose it was so I can't give 'em credit or steer anyone over to try and guess his songs (I only answered one cuz I didn't think it'd be fair to answer the other 10 I knew considering I was a first time visitor. So yeah, if you happen to find my page...I knew the Cult, New Order, Aztec Camera and several others). I remember I got to his page via James' and that he was from Chicago.

So now my secret is out. At 3, 4 and 5 am, when I'm suffering from a severe bout of insomnia, I blog hop. I go to one or more of the blogs I read regularly and click all the links. It's usually an interesting journey because you never know where you'll end up. This morning I ended up stealing this great idea from some random guy who I don't know but could possibly have stood next to at any number of concerts in Chicago.

Anyway, here's now this works...

Put your iPod on shuffle and post the first line of lyrics from the first 25 songs that come up. Readers then try to guess the song. As each one is correctly guessed, I'll edit this post with the title and artist.

NO CHEATING BY USING GOOGLE!!!!

If anyone gets any of these, you'll be my new best friend cuz I'll know you have awesome taste in music. My guess is that 2, 7, 8, 13, 16, 19 and 21 will be the easiest and the first ones answered. Good luck!

Most aren't newer songs and most aren't songs that were "hit" singles for any of these bands, at least the bands that actually have had what one would consider a hit single.
