12:02 pm - The Finest Taste in Music jeeperstseepers Has Ever Encountered
The lyrics meme seems to be making the rounds again (hobviously and glitterlust, good show), and I love music and lyrics and this meme, and it's Friday, so here we go. I went through Pipsqueak, which means all the music is stuff I really love or am into currently (or...a few weeks ago, I haven't loaded up some of my newer acquisitions). I nixed songs whose title was contained in the first line, and I also did not repeat artists. And I didn't use some songs with very few lyrics. And I was arbitrary about some selections. Sue me. No one alive can get all twenty-five, as at least one isn't even Googleable.

All right, music lovers: have at it.

1. Load up on guns, bring your friends, it's fun to lose and to pretend Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit"—cucumbersarnies, glitterlust
2. Straight lines that cut through the scene like you wanted to Ladytron, "Blue Jeans"—modlin
3. Sometimes in the morning, I am petrified and can't move Rilo Kiley, "A Better Son/Daughter"—tiggz, grammargirl, electricmonk
4. I think I'm drowning, asphyxiated / I want to break this spell that you've created Muse, "Time Is Running Out"—tiggz, cucumbersarnies, vonnie_k, glitterlust, jeeperstseepers
5. I'm in Los Angeles today / It smells like an airport runway Death Cab for Cutie, "Why You'd Want to Live Here"—modlin
6. Watching all the insects march along / Seem to know just right where they belong
7. When you're ripe, you'll bleed out of control
8. Dear Mr. and/or Mrs. Sender, we're pleased to inform you that your application's been accepted The Dresden Dolls, "Sex Changes"—porpentine
9. I'm thinking of my soul's sovereignty, and I know everything you hate in me
10. The unsettled mind is at times an ally, leaving the senses to fend for themselves System of a Down, "Thetawaves"—sinca
11. Have faith, have faith in the blue lady
12. No evolution / Sometimes it depresses me / The same old same old / We keep repeating history Garbage, "Sex Is Not the Enemy"—atropos116
13. March on by like stardust in the sky / Brave or blinded I'm not sure which am I
14. Got a green light, got a green light, yeah, but I'm going nowhere Filter, "The Best Things"—littlelesh
15. Oh, you humor me today, calling me out to play Eisley, "Telescope Eyes"—janeanger
16. I am an arms dealer, fitting you with weapons in the form of words Fall Out Boy, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race"—ryca, glitterlust
17. I fancy you but I've been destitute
18. Yours is the only version of my desertion that I could ever subscribe to Interpol, "PDA"—jeeperstseepers
19. Just 'cause you got a broken toe don't mean you can't stand up tall
20. I know a movie star, I've got her plastered her to my wall Guster, "Barrel of a Gun"—wimbledonchampv
21. Whatever makes you tired, the resting always fails
22. I'm so hard for a rich girl, my heels are high, my eyes cast low Stars, "Elevator Love Letter"—vonnie_k, electricmonk
23. Hello little boys, little toys, we're the dreams you're believin' Shiny Toy Guns, "Le Disko"—atropos116, afrocurl
24. I fell in love again / All things go, all things go Sufjan Stevens, "Chicago"—cucumbersarnies, vonnie_k, glitterlust, grammargirl, jeeperstseepers
25. There is a road that meets the road that goes to my house The Decemberists, "July, July!"—grammargirl
Current Music: Snow Patrol - An Olive Grove Facing the Sea

3. Rilo Kiley - A Better Son/Daughter
22. Stars - Elevator Love Letter

Some of the others sound familiar, but I can't name them. Two out of twenty-five ain't bad, right? (Don't answer that.)

Hiiii! Dude, we have the same music taste, so you should be getting a lot more of these.

14 is right. I don't know if you know 2. I doubt most people do.

Ooh, fun! The easy ones are done already, but:

2. Ladytron, "Blue Jeans"

And I need to know what 5 is, because I collect LA songs.

YAY! HAAAAA. Look right above you. That's hilarious. I love "Blue Jeans." I didn't think anyone would get it.

Someone will get 5 eventually, I think. It's a fabulous L.A. song.

I only know one that hasn't already been guessed - 15. "Telescope Eyes," by Eisley.

Wow, that's really hard. I got "Chicago", but that was it. This was educational, because now I realize that I don't actually know the lyrics to any Nirvana songs. I listen to their music all the time, but I can't actually spontaneously produce any of the lyrics.

But come on! You have to know the opening of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," at the very least!

Some Nirvana lyrics are very strange.
