Yeah, it’s another one of those guess the lyrics memes. What can I say? I like this game. :D
I have too much weird stuff in my complete library, so I used a playlist of about 90 favorites instead. Um…if a lot of these sound weird and unfamiliar, it’s probably because you don’t listen to much Tori Amos. ;)
Step 1: Put your iTunes on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, not matter how embarrassing. (I won't cheat; you can't cheat)*
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
*I did skip songs for the following reasons:
1) The song has no words.
2) The song title is in the first line.
3) Someone else on my flist who has done this meme already had that song.
4) I couldn’t figure out what the first line of the song says.
1. In my platforms I hit the floor, fell face down
2. He said, “Follow me,” oh oh
3. I am the only one to blame for this
4. Tuna, rubber, a little blubber in my igloo
5. Lord, we call in the night, “What would your servant do?”
6. A Bouvier ‘til her wedding day, shots rang out, the police came
7. Water, water everywhere, and I complain about my thirst
8. Pray God you can cope
9. Excuse me, but can I be you for a while?
10. It makes sense that it should happen this way
11. Just like the white-winged dove sings the song
12. The Bible says life passes like a shadow, and I know
13. On my way up north, up on the Ventura
14. Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens
15. Under a blackened sky, far beyond the glaring street lights
16. You took your coat off, stood in the rain
17. Let me show you what I’m made of
18. Now here you go again, you say you want your freedom
19. Wait a minute baby, stay with me a while
20. You have led me to the sadness, I have carried this pain
21. Saw you dancing out the ocean
22. It’s a muggy night in Houston, and all the intersections are like full serve stations
23. Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
24. Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide
25. Morning smiles like the face of a newborn child
26. When it rains or it shines on this pillow of mine, I will lift up my head to the sky
27. Don’t say morning’s come, don’t say it’s up to me
28. Way to go, Mr. Microphone, show us all what you don’t know
29. Take my sorrow and my sin, I will run into your arms again
30. Lay down your sweet and weary head
So far, I’ve spent my summer break being really lazy. Yesterday I spent almost the entire day watching an anime series called Full Moon, which is 50-something episodes long, I think. It’s got quite an interesting plot device that really drew me in. I think it would actually make a good live action movie, if the story were streamlined a bit. Basically, it’s about this 12-year-old girl with throat cancer, who always dreamed of becoming a famous singer. She gets a visit from two shinagami (death spirits, kind of like Andrew in Touched by an Angel, who escort the souls of the dead into the afterlife). She’s not supposed to be able to see them, but for some reason, she can, and she finds out from them that she’s supposed to have only one year left to live. Hearing this news, she’s determined to make her dream come true, and she decides to go to this audition at a record studio, even though she’s not old enough (sixteen), and because of her cancer her voice, although pretty, is not very strong. One of the two shinagami feels compassion for her, and uses his power to temporarily transform her into a healthy sixteen year old, even though his partner warns him that messing with her fate will get him into trouble. He doesn’t really expect her to pass the audition, but—oops!—of course, she does, and he and his partner end up getting sucked in to helping her lead a double life as a sick little girl and a famous teen idol singer called Full Moon. As the story progresses, she learns some interesting things about the past—about her deceased parents, her grandmother (her legal guardian, who hates music), her doctor (an old friend of her father’s who was also a musician in his youth), a childhood friend that she fell in love with but hasn’t heard from in years, and, most significantly, the shinagami who changed her into Full Moon, who was once a human before his tragic death. It’s just a nice blend of teen dreams-come-true fluff, other-worldly mystery, and romance, and I think it would make an appealing film. I can dream, right? Hmm...I think I'll go look for some Full Moon icons now.
