Fallen Off the Bandwagon.

Hey, remember that meme? The one everyone did? The that involved shuffling your mp3 files and selecting your favorite lyric from the next twenty-five songs? The one I didn't do because I don't have an collection of mp3 files?

Well, I've decided to do it now, since my CD carrying case is packed with travelin' CDs. These are all CDs I know rather well, so I decided to pick my favorite single line from each. Guess at what song they're from, marvel at their poetry, boggle at their inaptness, I don't care. I just want to be one of the cool kids.
  1. And in my mind you always will be sitting on the sofa unaware of how you put your genius on a plane, left it holding bags out in the rain, the ghostly homeless children of your brain.
  2. And the song said "Let's be happy." I was happy. It never made me happy before.
  3. Could you put a name to someone else's sigh? Could you put a face to someone else's eyes?
  4. Crash! Crash! Can hear them bash: bedposts, plaster.
  5. Everyone thinks that they know what they want, but sometime your drug chooses you.
  6. Everything sticks until it goes away.
  7. Giselle is the cross and the nails and the crown and the thieves.
  8. He looks around, around; he sees angels in the architecture, spinning in infinity.
  9. He sounds like he's missing something or someone that he knows he can't have now. And if he isn't, I certainly am.
  10. Horatio, I am dead :(
  11. I don't care, I only have one life to live; I wanna take you in my arms so I can give.
  12. I'll show you a place high on a desert plain.
  13. I'll be ugly, so you don't have to be.
  14. I'm an indisguisable shade of twilight.
  15. In my mind's eye, I am love's pauper and I am going nowhere. But, I know there's a little piece of heaven - a piece of heaven somewhere.
  16. It feels like love, not some rigged up holiday where I believe in somebody who can bring me down again.
  17. No se me vuelvo loco si ya no te vuelvo a ver!
  18. Now when you are knee-deep in Aeneid's footnotes and your eyes are closing, I will take your hex out of context and we will stop this posing.
  19. Pick up those dancing shoes, kick off those wedding blues, these are the ways you can choose.
  20. Then I walk down to buy her flowers and sell some gifts that I got.
  21. There's a heart in the sky! There just is, don't ask why!
  22. We are all in some way or another going to Reseda. Someday. To die.
  23. We could live in the mountains, or we could live on the plains, or in a place far too beautiful, too beautiful to name.
  24. You could either be successful or be us.
  25. Your clever cuts into me; as long as you're next to me, I can't feel both feet on the ground.
SunNYTX: 21.

I only know 6, 12, 20, 22.

22 is one of the best songs EVER.

I know 6 and 8, but many others sound familiar.

8 & 22, both of which are listed above so I won't reveal either.

You make my brain hurt, Table. :)

6, 8, 11, 12, 19, 22. And I have to agree with [ profile] thedan on this one...22 is off one of the best CDs of all time. It must needs be owned, along with 8.

Like so many others, 8 and 12. 10 is from Hamlet, so either you have a radio-play on CD, or somebody's quoting it in their lyrics. I'm gonna guess Melanie Doane, cause I know she did that type of thing on her first album which I haven't got and apparently nobody on the web has lyrics for, but it's entirely a guess.

6, 8, 9, 12, 22 (don't have the album, I just know the song).

Since I'm the only one who got it so far

I just want to say that 9 is a wonderful, underrated album.

I'm certain of 9, 13, 18, and 20. I think I know 1 and 17, but I don't have my cds at work to double check.
