20 Song Lyrics Meme and Math Geekery  
I don't own an iPod and likely never will, but here are lyrics from my Windows Media Player after shuffling. :D

1. I'd like to think that I was just myself again.

2. He's not vicious or malicious. - mangosong Dee-lite "Groove Is in the Heart"

3. Oh please give me the sign I'm waiting for.

4. I've been forcing myself not to forget, just to feel worse. - ciceronianus Electronic "Getting Away With It"

5. You can almost hear time slipping away.

6. It's awful quiet here since love fell asleep. - wordplay Indigo Girls "Least Complicated"

7. This is how it has to be - no more us and no more we.

8. The wonder of it all was you, and underneath it all, it all wasn't true.

9. I ain't got nobody I feel I gotta live for, nobody to live for.

10. When dreams don't become the people, people become the dreams.

11. If you could only see the love that you're wasting.

12. When your pride is on the floor, I'll make you beg for more. - jiggery_pokery Shakespear's Sister "Stay"

13. We can try and talk it over, if you say you'll help me out.

14. Did you care? Was I right?

15. If there was a Grand Canyon, she could fill it up with the lies he's told her. - littletort Jamie O'Neal "There Is No Arizona"

16. Sometimes it's the broken heart that decides. - ciceronianus Erasure "Sometimes"

17. If you hear this song again, don't make it a requiem.

18. There's nothing that I wouldn't do, this isn't how I planned it.

19. Took the hourglass, left the sand, now you've got time on your hands.

20. You know my heart is in your hands, so give it up or make a stand. - ciceronianus Jude Cole "Tell the Truth"

ETA: Did anyone else watch the new show Numb3rs tonight? Talk about a total high for math geeks. I would be really curious as to how accurate the calculations they're coming up with are - of course, they don't show the calculations for long enough for anyone to write them down, so I doubt anyone could proof them. Not to mention the whole lack of data to test them out thing. But it was an interesting show - we'll just have to see if it continues to grab my attention, especially considering I am nowhere near a math genius.
I feel: geekygeeky

Somehow I am not surprised that you knew this one, but don't ask me why. <3

Showing my complete lack of understanding of music, I can stay safely, that I don't recognize any of these. Go me!
Vicki: Cleavage is good.hermorrine on January 24th, 2005 04:23 am (UTC)
At least part of it is due to your age, and the rest could have to do with your taste in music. I don't think it's anything to do with understanding music, really.
Vanvan on January 24th, 2005 05:19 am (UTC)
Age-schmage. I just don't know any music that was popular past about '75. :D
Vicki: Natalie largehermorrine on January 24th, 2005 06:51 am (UTC)
Well I don't know much music before that time, so I suppose we're even. :D

#12 is Staaaaaaaaaaaaay by Shakespear(e)'s Sister.
Vicki: Oooooooh!hermorrine on January 24th, 2005 04:24 am (UTC)
I'm impressed, Mr. Pokery. I doubt many people know this group OR song.
That's what she said.: !!!altricial on January 24th, 2005 05:53 am (UTC)
Really?? :O I thought that song was pretty famous! It is one of my fave songs ever.
Vicki: Me by Anna <333hermorrine on January 24th, 2005 06:45 am (UTC)
It wasn't terribly famous in the US - I'm glad it was moreso elsewhere in the world. They're one of my fave groups.
That's what she said.altricial on January 24th, 2005 06:54 am (UTC)
I haven't heard any of their other songs..recs please? :D
Vicki: Rachael GRINhermorrine on January 24th, 2005 07:11 am (UTC)
Seriously, their entire first CD is excellent. "Stay" is from their second CD which is also very good but I like the first better. They're more pissed off on the first one. :))
Here's a link to their first CD, Sacred Heart: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000261DB/ref=pd_sbs_m_2/002-3191385-9265666?v=glance&s=music&n=507846
And to the second one, Hormonally Yours, so named because they were both pregnant at the time they wrote and recorded it :)) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000001FH3/qid=1106550429/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/002-3191385-9265666?v=glance&s=music&n=507846
That's what she said.altricial on January 24th, 2005 07:58 am (UTC)
Awesome :O I shall dl :D Thanks >:D

It was #1 in the UK for eight weeks (22nd Feb to 18th Apr 1992) so anyone British of a certain age would be hard-pressed to have missed it :-)
Vickihermorrine on January 24th, 2005 05:18 pm (UTC)
I continue to forget that some music was popular elsewhere even if I was one of the few people listening to it in this country. ;)

And I hope that you had to look those dates up - if you remembered them I will be a bit frightened.

6 - Indigo Girls "Least Complicated"
Vicki: Heeeeeeeeeee!hermorrine on January 24th, 2005 04:25 am (UTC)
Again, not at all surprised that you knew this one. :D
ciceronianus on January 24th, 2005 04:39 am (UTC)
4. Getting away with it - Pet Shop Boys.
16. Sometimes - Erasure.
20. Tell the truth - Jude Cole.
Vicki: Fiona by Sophiehermorrine on January 24th, 2005 06:47 am (UTC)
You got the group wrong on 4, but I'll give it to you anyway. :D Otherwise, excellent job!
ciceronianus on January 24th, 2005 07:08 am (UTC)
Ah, really? Blast. But hurrah for the other two :)
Vicki: Catherine - CSIhermorrine on January 24th, 2005 08:17 pm (UTC)
Well Neil Tennant was part of Electronic, so he did sing on the song. It was like some weird project with the lead singer from New Order and Neil and I don't remember who else, but I love that song. :)
Davestormwynd on January 24th, 2005 12:22 pm (UTC)
I completely forgot to tape Numb3rs, but it's gotten decent reviews -- OK, so I'm talking about Entertainment Weekly, but still.
Vickihermorrine on January 24th, 2005 05:16 pm (UTC)
I thought it was good - you'll have to catch it soon so you can tell me if their math is in any way legit. ;)
Davestormwynd on January 25th, 2005 12:49 pm (UTC)
Will do. One of my colleagues says he taped it, so I should be able to watch the premiere some time soon.
