For me, this meme, enduring entertainment. The rules: I put all my music on shuffle, write out the first lines of the first 20 songs that play. You guess them. If the actual title is in the first line, I replace it with "blah blah blah"... NB, the number of blahs does not necessarily correlate to the number of words replaced. Yeah, sorry for song 3 (she says while snickering).

Of course, "first line," I wavered back and forth on whether that was first rhyming couplet or not. So maybe I'll flesh some of these out if they're not obvious. (ETA: added some on many songs)

1. My baby don't care for shows, my baby don't care for clothes
2. Blah blah blah, so why should it be, you and I should get along so awfully
3. Well blah blah blah, no blah blah blah, you can stand me up at the gates of hell
4. It was early morning yesterday, I was up before the dawn
5. Laa laa laaa (Blah blah blah) Well high school, seemed like such a blur; I didn't have much interest in sports or school elections
6. I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
7. This looks familiar, vaguely familiar
8. I look at all the lonely people
9. When are you gonna come down, when are you going to learn
10. Here we stand, blah blah blah hearts broken in two, two, two
11. So close, no matter how far
12. Blah blah blah, love can level ranks and therefore, though his lordship's station's mighty
13. I was born in a Dublin street where the loyal drums did beat
14. Every night I'm lying in bed, holding you close in my dreams
15. High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
16. Crack that whip!
17. It was down in old Joe's bar room, on the corner by the square
18. Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day
19. Blah blah blah, sing my song, be it right, be it wrong
20. I lived in a place called Okfuskee, and I had a little girl in a holler tree

ETA: IDed songs get struckthrough. Well done [personal profile] serene and [personal profile] elf!

Oh, and I have the same couplet discussion with myself every time I do this. May do it again soon.

7. Gonzo's song from The Muppet Movie; unsure of exact title. (Going to Go Back There Someday?)
8. Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles (maybe? I think of it as starting with "aaah," not "I," but that could just be American ears.)
10. Worlds Apart - Journey
18. Box of Rain - Grateful Dead (I *know* this one, and I'm gonna kick myself if I've misremembered which song opens with those words.)

And apparently, I should track down the rest of your music list, 'cos I love all four of those intensely.
