    Step 1: Open up whatever MP3 program you use and add every song in your collection.
    Step 2: Put it on random.
    Step 2: Post lyrics from the first 50 songs that are played, no matter how embarassing.
    Step 4: Strike/bold out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    we were searching for a fire
    and we settled for a spark
    sparks glow like stars in the dark
    of course they do just like you

    oh a trance is a spell
    with a thrill wrapped up inside it
    and try as you might to fight it
    love will get you in the end
    Lullaby + Exile

    in my life, why do i give valuable time
    to people who don't care if i live or die
    Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

    betty said she prayed today
    for the sky to blow away
    or maybe stay; she wasn't sure
    River Man

    come back alive
    when stars collide
    you can feel the universe
    behind your eyes

    if i'm so far from your heart, why do i feel it beat?

    Following in Scotty’s footsteps, a mix of my own I threw together for someone (who shall remain unnamed). It’s a little old now, but I still return to it from time to time. I find it cathartic.

    I am prone to excess in when I do something like this. So yes, it is long, dramatic and at times a little obscure. I know what I was trying to convey, which when using someone else’s words is never perfect, but I was highly satisfied with the results. Lyrics are always important to me and with this mix I tried to match both music and words to my theme. What that theme is, and who it’s about I will leave to you, but I will tell you it is a story in 3 acts, so have at it. (I did post snippets of lyrics to give some sense of what is going on).

    If I could upload the mix for all to share I would but the Law gets in the way.

    what are you?
    (you can read this song in its entirety a few posts down.)

    These Days
    I had a lover,
    I don't think I'll risk another
