    Put your media player on shuffle
    Write the first lines of the first 25 songs that play
    See if others can guess them!
    Searching the internet is CHEATING!!!

    1. This is for all you people
    2. You say you are my friend
    3. Quiet, i am sleeping
    4. Can't you see i'm trying
    5. Storm brewing for a long time
    6. Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
    7. I come from here and everywhere
    8. Like most babies smell like butter
    9. Oh, don't fight it
    10. while i'm asleep my spirit crawls out
    11. Fool enough to almost be it
    12. You put your love upon me though i was but poor
    13. I don't wanna be your friend anymore
    14. On september the third two thousand and three
    15. Tender is the night
    16. Here comes ted with his best friend fred
    17. Take your brother down to the sea
    18. found from within, just better without
    19. It's cold outside
    20. I caught a glimpse
    21. I was sucking on a cigarette
    22. I woke up weak today and needing your voice
    23. disarm you with a smile
    24. the sun is up, i'm so happy i could scream
    25. we want to go to the city, we wanna check out the scene
