    1 Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' on
    With What's Going On, Gaye meditated on what had happened to the American dream of the past -- as it related to urban decay, environmental woes, military turbulence, police brutality, unemployment, and poverty. These feelings had been bubbling up between 1967 and 1970, during which he felt increasingly caged by Motown's behind-the-times hit machine and restrained from expressing himself seriously through his music. Finally, late in 1970, Gaye decided to record a song that the Four Tops' Obie Benson had brought him, "What's Going On". When Berry Gordy decided not to issue the single, deeming it uncommercial, Gaye refused to record any more material until he relented. Confirmed by its tremendous commercial success in January 1971, he recorded the rest of the album over ten days in March, and Motown released it in late May.

    Yeah, it's useless but kinda fun, so shut up.

    Here are the rules, just in case you don't know it yet:

    "Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, not matter how embarassing.
    Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!"

    Well, some non-english lyrics as well as some underground and obscure bands may appear, but that's the fun. Let's go:

    1. I wish I could eat the salt off of your lost faded lips. Obstacle 1

    2. Leve como leve pluma muito leve leve pousa. Amor

    3. We saw houses falling from the sky...

    4. Nello Specchio Viso D'angelo...

    5. Sie liebt dich, yeah, yeah, yeah. Sie liebt Dich

    6. J'suis l'poinçonneur des Lilas.Le poinçonneur des Lilas

    7. Aside the one in sorrows to release my darkened mind...
