You can tell I’ve royally fucked up some important aspect(s) of my life when I resort to coming down off my high horse and posting something like this to cheer me up.

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 20 songs that play
Step 3: Post and let everyone guess what song the lines come from

1) “Would you sing me now to sleep?”
2) “I’ve forgotten what I’m running for / Maybe I’m running in place”
3) “But I keep on waiting, anticipating / For that soft voice to talk to me at night / For some tender arms to hold me tight”
4) “Here’s a fella in bluejeans / Dancin’ with a older Queen / Who’s dolled up in-a diamond rings…”
5) “A relationship may save you or enslave you / Count on both to happen”
6) “There’s something about this beat that gets me tranquilized / And when I play it at my shows I feel sanctified”
7) “Someday we’ll trust him and learn how to see him / Someday he’ll call us and we will come running”
8) “And so my soul is shared by two / The worst of me the best of you”
9) “I’d send God’s grace tonight / Could it be found?”
10) “If I find my own way how much will I find?”
11) “Why not phone up Robin Hood / And ask him for some wealth distribution”
12) “And you stood at the door with your hands on my waist / And you kissed me like you meant it / And I knew that you meant it”
13) “And all I find are souvenirs from better times / Before the gleam of your taillights fading east / To find yourself a better life”
14) “You wanna come with me ’cause I got Tony Hawk at the studio. Oh, you don’t like videos? How ’bout trips through the city, yo? Did I mention that I’m down with Arsenio?”
15) “I just want you to notice / I just want you to feel the same”
16) “I was always brave and kind of righteous, now I find I’m wavering”
17) “I wanna wake up with the rain falling on a tin roof / while [you’re] safe [here] in [my] arms”
18) “It’s been seven days / My brain’s such a hazy maze / It’s like before we had these rings / I don’t like to think such things”
19) “I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images / And when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned”
20) “When we wander into valleys far from home / when shadows hover over our souls / find us in your mercy…”
