The iPod Shuffle

I don't have an iPod, but DH's phone does function as an MP3 player, and we loaded it with music we both love, so I'll use that. Originally seen on Valerie's blog quite a while back, but I was reminded of it today by Belinda posting some results to hers. Not much else to talk about right now, so may as well play. I'll leave this up until Friday, Nov 14, then give the answers.

The problem with a few of mine is that the title of the song is the first line! I'm going to try to work around that somehow, so I may bend the rules just a touch.

And if you have time, you should watch the emoticon at the bottom all the way through. It takes about 20 seconds or so, but I think it's pretty funny.

Step 1: Put your iPod or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the 1st line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. And it doesn't have to be perfect if you can't understand the lyrics word for word.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1. Just when I believed I couldn't ever want for more Heather got it.
2. Saturday night I was downtown, working for the FBI [cover version, but will accept original artist] Matt got it (via Cyndi, his wife)
