Procrastination meme

I should be doing homework, really I should. Instead I meme'd.

1. Put your music player (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc etc etc) on shuffle.
2. For the first twenty-five songs that come up- and no cheating!- post the first line of the song.
3. If the title of the song comes up in the line, you have two options: you may replace the title with blanks or, if that would make it too obvious, you may skip the song. This is the only time you should skip a song! Skipping embarrassing 90s pop songs takes the fun out of it, guys.
4. Let your friends guess the songs.

Addendum to #3 - I also skipped instrumentals, spoken word pieces (audiobooks, etc), and Christmas songs (those would be too easy).

So I release a selection from my pod out to the world to reveal the inner workings of my psyche to you...and procrastination makes me philosophical apparently...or just prone to stand up philosophizing in the words of Mel Brooks...

1. I don't remember quite how I met you, wasn't long ago, I just get a picture of sun in your eyes, the waves in your hair...

2. We walked in the cold air, freezing breath on a windowpane, lying and waiting...

3. -------, -------, breaks open the tomb of a deserted cartoon that I wrote...

4. Passing by you light up my darkened skies, you take only seconds to draw me in...

5. Come ride with me through the veins of history, I'll show you a god who falls asleep on the job...

6. There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy... -Nature Boy, David Bowie version, from apurplepatch

7. You say you want diamonds and ring of gold, you say you want your story to remain untold... -All I Want is You, U2, from earlgreytea68

8. Is this happening? Is this fantasy?

9. I went home with a waitress, the way I always do. How was I to know she was with the Russians too?

10. Bad news if he could choose would he refuse to be the bearer? It seems what he has to do could not be any clearer...

11. I heard you crying loud all the way in the sound to be searching for that someone...

12. Finland, Finland, Finland, that's the country for me! Finland/Fisch Slapping Dance, Spamalot Soundtrack, from fragmentpieces

13. Presenting -------- -------- just as advertised, oh oh oh oh oh coke and pepsi finally found a compromise...

14. You'll never be a better kind if you don't leave the world behind...

15. Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation... -Music of the Night, Phantom of the Opera, from earlgreytea68

16. Oh leave me now show me how as I won't be ashamed...

17. So tired of broken hearts and losing at this game before I start this dance...

18. ---- -- -- while sumer i last with fugeles song...

19. Small ---- ----- snuck off to the city strung out on lasers and slash back blazers...

20. There are many things that I could be proud of if I'd only invented them such as the wheel...

21. Welcome my friends to Paris, here have a flower on me... -Paris Holds the Key, Anastasia Soundtrack, from fragmentpieces

22. It takes the pain away but could not make you stay it's way too broke to fix...

23. Crash and burn all the stars explode tonight how'd you get so desperate how'd you stay alive?

24. We were so drunk last night, we had that stupid fight, you called me a useless selfish prick...

25. The future needs a big kiss winds blow with a twist never seen a moon like this can you see it too?

Have fun! :)

6. is Nature Boy - I'll guess the Bowie version although there are others.

I feel like I know a bunch of the others but I can't put titles and artists to them and the other one I knew for sure has been guessed already.

You got it - and it is the Bowie version from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. I know I have a version by Bobby Darin somewhere, but it's not currently on my computer.

I'll say this as a little hint on some of the songs - a couple on this list may have possibly popped up in fics that I've written in the past...

21. Paris Holds the Key (To Your Heart) - Anastasia Soundtrack
12. Finland/ Fisch Schlapping Song - Spamalot Sountrack

I am impressed that you knew the Anastasia one! I don't know anyone else aside from myself who owns the soundtrack. :)
