[music |Guess?]

#1: List the first lyrics of the first fifteen songs that you hear on your music player of choice, throwing out the ones where the title is in the first line, that don't have lyrics, or that are in languages you don’t speak
#2: See who gets it. Particularly difficult (IMO) songs are marked with asterisks.

1) I know you; I know you've seen her
2) Stay with me; my love I hope you'll always be - "Follow You Follow Me" by Genesis, named by hokie
3*) Will you come to play some more? Will you stand alone?
4) I've been a bad, bad girl; I've been careless with a delicate man - "Criminal" by Fiona Apple, named by mkwhite
5) Gee, but it's great to be back home - "Keep the Customer Satisfied" by Simon and Garfunkel, named by dalassa
6) With just one kiss, you could change the world - "Walk or Ride" by the Ditty Bops, named by nightsinger
7) The last train is nearly due; the underground is closing soon "A Poem on the Underground Wall" by Simon and Garfunkel, named by hokie
8*) As a young boy, Michael helped his mother cook - "Big Fish" by Moxy Fruvous, named by hokie
9) I ain't never gonna let you down; all you gotta do is trust me - "Depending On You" by Tom Petty, named by miang
10*) Frost on the door melts away like butter in the noontime sun
11*) I can see by your eyes you must be lying
12) Mother was an incubator; Father was the contents of a test tube in the ice box - "905" by the Who, named by hokie
13) Down in the workshop, all the elves are making toys - "The Night Santa Went Crazy" by Weird Al Yankovic, named by xaandria
14) Once, there was this kid who got into an accident and couldn't come to school - "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm" by Crash Test Dummies, named by nightsinger
15) Here I stand, look around, around, around... - "Now I'm Here" by Queen, named by hokie

I suck at this game. :/

6) The Ditty Bops. Um. Next line is "Might not be much better, but it certainly couldn't hurt." I know I know the song, but the title entirely escapes me. Walk or Ride is the only title of theirs I can think of at the moment.

14) Crash Test Dummies -- I think it's Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm?

You're not <i>too</i> bad

Both are correct. "Walk or Ride" is indeed the title for 6. 14 is actually "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm", but I'll give it to you.

Aww, I knew #4, but mkwhite got it first. So! How about 9) Tom Petty - Depending On You.

And shit, I think that's the only other one I know. :\

Well, 9's right. (FWIW, a track from Gyakuten Meets Orchestra came on while I was doing this, but they don't exactly have lyrics.)

13) The Night Santa Went Crazy by Weird Al. Can't tell if it's the Extra-Gory version.

Extra-Gory version? I know of no such thing. The one I was listening to was just off of his CD...

On the "Amish Paradise" single, there is an Extra-Gory version of "TNSWC." I forget what precisely made it so gory, but I remember two verses being so disturbing that my mom took the CD away. It was great.

Dammit, the three I know are already taken, and I can't come up with 1.

So, no harm, no foul.

FWIW, I wouldn't recognize 1 from the lyrics either. It's a tough one.

15) is "Now I'm Here" by Queen.

8) is "Big Fish" by Moxy Fruvous.

2) is "Follow You Follow Me" by Genesis.

I think I know 7) and 12)...is 7) "A Poem On The Underground Wall" by Simon and Garfunkel and 12) "905" by The Who?

Correct, though dalassa got it first.

I'm amused that of the two S&G songs up there, two people each got one but not the other (and a different one each time), and one person got both.)

#12 could be more Weird Al - I Think I'm A Clone Now?

All the ones I know are taken.

Not a bad guess, but Hokie guessed it correctly above as "905" by the Who.
