Lyrics Game

1) On your current playlist in your favorite music player, hit shuffle and pick the first thirty songs to come up (skipping instrumentals, duh).
2) Write down a line of the song (try to avoid using one that contains the song title).
3) Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs. (NO CHEATING!) - Please don't use Google or the like. That is just no fun.
4) When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it.

The comments are screened to give everyone a chance to guess. This just from the music off my laptop. I skipped all the ones in foreign languages and I limited it to one song per album/soundtrack.


1. Maybe if the music is right, I'll meet you tomorrow sort of late at night, And we'll go dancing, baby, then you'll see

2. Romeo he loved juliet, juliet she felt the same Fever (Avid All Stars)

3. But he knows that as deep as love goes, it will never save a poor man from the cold, so he packs his guitar and sets off wearing a smile.

4. You told me you hate Jehovah Witnesses that knock on your door, but I should tell your opinion is dangerous, as if to paint the truth on a billboard, it's just fine if it's yours, but if it's not, it's just a waste of a paintbrush

5. I can see what you want, but you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun. So maybe I'm not the one. Now your so cute, I like your style

6. Desperate for changing, starving for truth, I'm closer to where I started, chasing after you. Hanging By A Moment (Lifehouse)

7. When you're standing all alone with your dreams in the dark never knowing what is real. Fate (Trans Siberian Orchestra - Beethoven's Last Night)

8. It doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there. Dancing in the Street (Martha Reeves and the Vandellas)

9. With our daughters getting married, and this trouble in the town, your upset, your worn out, go inside, go lie down. Maybe it's indigestion.

10. I don't care, I'm still real, no matter how many records I sell. After the show or after the Grammies, I like to go cool out with the family, Sippin', reminiscing on days when I had a Mustang

11. Easy does it, easy does it, they got something to say no to, And they're turning us into monsters, Turning us into fire, Turning us into monsters

12. All I want is a plain man, all I want is a modest man, a quite man, a gentle man My White Knight (Shirley Jones, Music Man)

13. Give me a kiss before you leave me, and my imagination will feed my hungry heart A Kiss to Build a Dream on (Louis Armstrong)

14. It could be curtains, or dishes, or a double boiler Wells Fargo Wagon (Company, Music Man)

15. Her steering wheel has sexy appeal, her evening gown is stainless steel, Has anybody seen my gal? How I miss all the bliss, of her sweet hydrologic kiss

16. I know I've been a real bad girl, I didn't mean for you to get hurt Sweet Escape (Gwen Stefani)

17. I reeeeeeeally want to know "title lyric here"

18. What is this fighting all about, will someone tear these two apart At the End of the Day (Les Miserables)

19. I'd like to sup with my baby tonight, fill the cup with my baby tonight Too Darn Hot (Ella Fitzgerald)

20. Let me be your shelter, let me be your light All I Ask of You (Phantom of the Opera)

21. The earth was quaking, my mind was aching You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC)

22. Two in love can make it, take my heart and please don't break it L-O-V-E (Nat King Cole)

23. If she wants she will destroy you, but if you lay her down for a kiss, her little heart it could explode. She will always be the only thing, that comes between me and the awful sting

24. And then one day, a magic day, he passed my way Nature Boy (Bobby Darin)

25. I see it in your eyes, the love beneath your tears, I'll be lonely without you, and I'll need your love to see me through

26. I been changin', as you can plainly see, I felt the joy and I learned about the pain, that my mama said, If I should choose to make it part of me, Would surely strike me dead, and now I'm

27. Tell me you see me, show me your laughter, Free Me. Tell me you love me, I'm the one you need, raise your hand

28. There's a little ditty, they're singing in the city Oom-Pah-Pah (Oliver!)

29. After school, walking home, fres dirt under my fingernails, Cars screech to a halt to let me pass, And I cannot remember, What life was like through photographs

30. Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend, somewhere along in the bitterness How to Save a Life (The Fray)
