Song intros meme

Since everyone else is doing it, it would be rude not to...

1. Open up your music player. Hit shuffle.
2. Record the first few lines line or two of the first thirty twenty songs that come up that do not give away the name of the song. Skip instrumentals (and I have also skipped spoken word tracks), but don't skip the embarrassing ones.
3. Make hapless LJ denizens guess the song names and artists. Google is cheating. For musical songs, the name of the musical is acceptable in place of the artist.
4. Least hapless LJ denizen wins admiration. That's right, just like a lobbyist in budget season, the points don't matter.



1. Beautiful ladies in danger, all around the world
2. Gonna tell you a story, about a woman I know, when it comes to lovin', oh she steals the show
3. Sundown, all around, walking in the summer sand
4. Well the Moon sank as the wind blew, The street lights slowly died
5. My love is like the rock - nothing moves it away from you, and I can't feel the shock, you won't break it up no matter what you do
6. I like things that are neat and ordered, I like reports with their cover pages all bordered
7. Moon shining down through the palms, shadows moving on the sand, someone whispering the twenty-third psalm
8. Well she wants to be a singer in the band, maybe I'll give the girl a hand and a microphone
9. How come you're always such a fussy young man? Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no raisin bran
10. Harry got up, dressed all in black, went down to the station and he never came back. They found his clothing scattered somewhere down the track, and he won't be down on Wall Street any more now.
11. Took my love and I took it down, climbed a mountain and I turned around
12. Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind, people think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time
13. Oh darling why do you talk so fast? Another evening just went past and I...
14. Her eyes are black, her skin so white, she moves so easily into the night, you feel the power, she takes yours away, with your heart and soul you'll give her anything she says
15. I met this girl, she looked like Axel Rose, got drunk and took her home and we slept in our clothes, and in the morning, put my feet on the floor, and I thought 'Being awake never felt like this before'
16. Shall I tell you about my life? They say I'm a...
17. She looks like she don't care, smooth as silk, cool as air, ooh it makes you wanna cry
18. I bought some rock star ashes, from the back of Rolling Stone, I guess you wouldn't mind it, they couldn't sell a soul
19. Once I had myself a good woman, but I just didn't treat her right, I was always leavin', livin' apart a life
20. Twas the first test of the Ashes series, 1993, Australia had only managed 289 and we...felt all was going to plan, that first innings at Old Trafford, then Merv Hughes and his handlebar moustach dismissed poor Athers

20, think it might be by the Duckworth-Lewis Method or whatever they're called, erm, "Ball of the Century"?

Right band, and you're thinking along the right lines, but the song is actually called 'Jiggery Pokery'.

I'm used to getting none on most of these, as my musical tastes are esoteric and miss out a lot. But that, I knew instantly.

And thanks; I think I found you through andrewducker, or possibly bart_calendar, and found your linkposts interesting enough to want to read all of 'em as they come out.

Number 2 is "Whole Lotta Rosie" by AC/DC or possibly the cover version by Hayseed Dixie.
