Lyrical Guessing Game

Thanks Howard for this bit o’ fun! I’m going to put the first few lines of the next 25 songs that play in my iTunes. Without resorting to an Internet search engine, can you guess the song and the artist? As people get them right, I’ll mark them out, add the title and artist, and give credit to whomever got it. Try to resisting cheating now. Ready? Here we go!

  1. Okay, Hayes says I have to stop at 5, so I’ll take #25: “Tits On The Radio” – Scissor Sisters. I’ll be back to pick over the left overs like a musical vulture later. 🙂

  2. Dan: I figured since that is your sister’s song, you’d get that one 🙂

    Anthony: Close on Billy Joel, but since you got it in your IM, I will give it to you 🙂 Honestly, the things I must do for you people! 😉
