I saw this on Heart Songs…since I haven’t done a music meme in awhile I thought I’d give it a try!
Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random [ElfPod on shuffle]
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Here’s the fun part: YOU get to guess what song it is from just the one line; if you’re really good, you’ll know the artist as well! [ahahaha good luck with this one!]
Step 4: Then I get to strike through the line when someone gets it right, linking to that someone, cause I’m nice like that
Step 5: No cheating! And by cheating, I mean no looking them up on Google or any other search engine
