Music Meme #2

I want to do these every few weeks or so, I think. Both because it's an easy way to get content up here and because I think it's fun.

*Oh, and if you look at this list and you see you know, like, fifteen of them, try and only answer a handful. Fun for everyone!

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the 1st 25 songs no matter how embarrassing
Step 3: Strike through once someone guesses both the artist and the track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing, looking up the lyrics is CHEATING.
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.
