National Vinyl Day: Meme Across the Blogs

August 13 - Wrap up down below.

Update: txrad just informed me it's "National Vinyl Day." That makes this meme all the more relevant.

Found at Soul Food, a.k.a. "fuctincalifornia" dot bloodclot dot com which makes me laugh when I see it.

les rules:
1. put your mp3 player or computer music player on random.
2. post the first four lines from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song (skip repeat artists & instrumentals *duh*).
3. post, and let your friends guess which song and artist the lines come from.
4. NO googling!

(kona asks, who the FUCK came up with the notion of 20 songs? Why not 10? or 5? After the day I've had this just feels like MORE fucking pointless work!)

So we're going to play this one a little differently. One at a time. When someone gets it right, I'll do another one. That way, I'm not wasting a lot of my fucking precious time.

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way

That one is a little tricky. I'll explain after some smart ass thinks they know who that is on my Zen player. Meanwhile, let's kick this up at notch. Clues will be posted at Black Soap.

We have a winner! Fritz! On to the next one...


Programmes of violence,
As entertainment,
Brings the disease into your room.
We know the germ

Good luck with that one!

Minstrel Boy correctly identified #2.
Here's another and I may stop this at #5.

I used to live in a darkened room
Had a face of stone
And a heart of gloom
Lost my hope, I was so far gone

Either this one is hard or everyone lost interest already. HA. I'll give you another clue -- I think she performed at the Republican convention in 04 or something similar. I was pretty disgusted. That should give you a clue about her genre as well.

5:59pm Thursday, Let's get these other two out of the way so I can move on... :-)

I doubt whether anyone would ever guess who this is. I may post the full album cover at Black Soap and still no one will probably guess. We'll see. I can tell you she won a grammy for this album in 1972 for best R&B category. And she was born in Galveston, Texas in 1935.

I've got my scars on my knees
Where I've been praying so long so long so long
I've got scars on my knees
Where I've been praying so long, Lord have mercy, so long.

This next one turned out to be way easy. It won't even need a hint.

[Prelude: (It's a live album) Now I wanna see every fucker in this place shout out... Come on. You can get fuckin' louder than that...]

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?

We saw them on this tour a few years ago in San Antonio at a big arena. Still, it was fun.

Eric at Wildebeast correctly identified this song so this blog gets added to my blogroll. No free konagod t-shirt for Eric since he didn't identify the album title. (Like there are any konagod t-shirts, but there will be someday.)

#3 and #4 are still open for someone to claim victory! And since no one has, I have posted the answers in the comments at Black Soap.
