• first line quiz: the 80s

    I've been seeing this quiz pop up in several journals (most notably Carali's) and I thought I'd drum something up along those lines. Here's how it works:


    Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
    Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    I'm narrowing the range in step 1 down to one of my 80s folders in the interest of not getting too obscure and keeping it thematic. Also, if the title appears in whole or in part in the opening line, I skipped it.

    Ready? Here goes...

    1. The silicon chip inside her head gets switched to overload I Don't Like Mondays
    2. Well I woke up this morning I was feeling fine
    3. See her laughing, talking, she's walking to the factory
    4. So windy and cold
