major slackage, song meme  
I is slacker hey what's up

I was either going to do this or the voice post meme today, but I decided to do this. In between classes of our waste-of-time half day (seriously, none of my teachers were even at school - they were either in Thailand on the theater trip, Beijing on the MUN trip, or...in school for the smartboard training, yep - why is it that we're an American school yet we have no Thanksgiving break?) and while slacking at home today, typed up this sucker.

25 parts of 25 songs, all of English origin/no translations. How many can you guys guess? And I know that my musical tastes are eclectic, but most of these should be guessable. :D

1. LA lights never shined quite as bright as in the movies
still wanna go?
‘cause something here in the way that we’re constantly moving
reminds you of home
Anna Nalick, Catalyst - anaraelia

2. something is scratching its way out
something you wanna forget about
no one expects you to get out
all on your own with no one around

3. as a rapturous voice escapes I will tremble a prayer
and I’ll beg for forgiveness
your sins into me, oh my beautiful one

4. ‘cause I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
and desire and love and empty things
just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
The Goo Goo Dolls, Better Days - anaraelia

5. it’s not a silly little moment
it’s the storm before the calm
this is the deep and dying breath
of this love that we’ve been working on

6. sleep has left me alone
to carry the weight of unraveling where we went wrong
it’s all I can do to hang on
to keep me from falling into old familiar shoes
Sarah McLachlan, Stupid - biases

7. the piano keys are black and white
but they sound like a million colors in your mind

I could tell you to go to war
or I could march for peace and fighting no more
but how do I know which is right?
and I hope he does when he sends you to fight

8. feels like you’re making a mess
you’re hell on wheels in a black dress
you drove me to the fire
and left me there to burn
Matchbox Twenty, Disease - hazy_undercover

9. said I’m gonna buy a gun and start a war
if you can tell me something worth fighting for
oh I’m gonna buy this is place is what I said
blame it upon a rush of blood to the head
Coldplay, A Rush Of Blood To The Head - biases

10. look at us we’re beautiful
all the people push and pull
but they’ll never get inside
we’ve got too much to hide

11. a couple of the sounds that I really like
are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I’m a juvenile product of the working class
whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

12. I wanted freedom, bound and restricted
I tried to give you up but I’m addicted
now that you know I’m trapped, sense of elation
you’d never dream of breaking this fixation
Muse, Time Is Running Out - biases

13. and if you turned around to see me
and I was gone
should’ve looked outside your window
‘cause the sun was coming up
Michelle Branch, Tuesday Morning - that_september

14. gotta change, rearrange
something’s bending to break
it’s only a matter of when

15. all around me are familiar faces
worn out places, worn out faces
bright and early for the daily races
going nowhere, going nowhere
Gary Jules, Mad World - anaraelia

16. forgive me if now I wear the face of worry
this time alone
could never cause any doubt
but I’ve been cold too long

17. well she wants to live her life
and she thinks about her life
pulls her hair back as she screams
I don’t really wanna live this life
Train, Meet Virginia - anaraelia

18. the anesthetic never set in and I’m wondering where
the apathy and urgency is that I thought I phoned in
it’s not so pleasant, it’s not so conventional
it sure as hell ain’t normal but we deal, we deal

just sit back, sit back, just sit back and relax
just sit back, sit back, just sit back and relapse again
Panic! At The Disco, Camisado - biases

19. with the lights out, it’s less dangerous
here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
here we are now, entertain us
Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit - biases (not an emo rocker! :P)

20. or maybe you’ve been through this before
but it’s my first time so please ignore
the next few lines ‘cause they’re directed at you
Jack Johnson, Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - hazy_undercover

21. I close my eyes and I keep seeing things
rainbow waterfalls, sunny liquid dreams
confusion creeps inside me raining down
gotta get to you, but I don’t know how

22. give me room to lay the law and let me go
I gotta make a play to make my lover stay
so what would an angel say
the devil wants to know
Fiona Apple, Criminal - kaiialyne

23. and I’m here to remind you
of the mess you left when you went away
it’s not fair to deny me
of the cross I bear that you gave to me
you oughta know
Alanis Morissette, You Oughta Know - biases

24. out of the aisle and into the highway
past the places where you might have turned
you never did notice, but you still hide away
anger of angels who won’t return
Vertical Horizon, Everything You Want - biases

25. every finger in the room
is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces
then I get afraid of what that could bring
Tori Amos, Crucify - anaraelia

But erm I swear I will finish the lims entry and the history IA. I sort of have to finish the IA by tomorrow...early afternoon. S-so. It will be done. Yes. I AM DETERMINED.

... D: ;;;;;

EDIT: annnnnnnnd Dex sweeps many of the musical guessings! :D Music memes are fun - I'll have a round deux sometime in the future, too. I have too many songs that I want to use anyway. XD
our hopes and expectations: workingworking, supposedly
black holes and revelations: various songs in this meme. :D
( let's conspire to ignite )
bek: inuyasha ooh!biases on November 23rd, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)
#4 is Goo Goo Dolls, but I can't remember which. >_>


#9 Coldplay, A Rush Of Blood To the Head

#12 Muse, Time is Running Out


#19 Smells Like Teen Spirit oh you emo punk rocker you. :P

#23 Alanis Morisette, You Oughta Know

#24 Vertical Horizon, Everything You Want

Not sure about the others, but I'm impressed, usually I have no idea with these memes. I just sing along to songs without taking much notice of the lyrics. ;_;

Re: #4 - well, at least you're halfway there? XD

Hahahaha, if Rika heard you saying emo punk rocker...she'd be sad. She's already berating the boys in her band for wanting to play Fall Out Boy. XDDD

I LOVE CAMISADO TOO. And you knew I'd have a Sarah song. No meme would be complete without one.

7/25, not bad at all! You rock. :D
Hatora Rhiannoninanaraelia on November 23rd, 2007 07:52 pm (UTC)
#1 is Catalyst by Anna Nalick (I did go through the entire CD to find the right song, though)

#4 is Better Days by the Goo Goo Dolls (but I wouldn't have gotten it if someone else hadn't already said Goo Goo Dolls--I knew I recognized it but it was driving me crazy)

#15 is Mad World by Gary Jules

#17 is Meet Virginia by one of those male groups that I get confused

#25 is Crucify by Tori Amos

And if we're counting total that I know I would have got #23 for sure and maybe #9 and #24 but they've already been guessed.

Re: 17, close enough. And yes to all the rest. :D

Yeah, it's sort of a first-come first-serve thing. Any of the lists where I do know 7 of the songs, 6 of them have already been named. Fun stuff.

And btw, who do I email to get my 9th grade transcript sent out to colleges? I think I emailed... Chris Hicks? I know it's the Thanksgiving weekend so I probably won't get a reply until next week, buuuut yeah. 8D
Hatora Rhiannoninanaraelia on November 24th, 2007 04:30 pm (UTC)
It won't be Chris Hicks, it will be be whoever's filling in for Judi Erwin until we get a permanent replacement, but Chris Hicks will know who that is and I don't. I mean, I know what she looks like, but I couldn't come up with her name to save my life.
a regular decorated emergency.: ToS - Rainedarkenedsakura on November 25th, 2007 05:57 am (UTC)
If I don't get a reply early next week, I'm pretty sure that I'll be desperately coming to you for some assistance. 8D Man, I still remember the escapade of getting my transcript to make sure I could graduate, let alone for college apps now.
Alejandra (was here): sam&deanthat_september on November 24th, 2007 01:15 am (UTC)
1 is "Catalyst" by Anna Nalick (woo! love that song!) and 4 is "Better Days" by Goo Goo Dolls. Haha, the other ones I knew have already been guessed. :D Yay for memes and wasting time!

(Sorry for the repost--I totally spaced typing in the title for the Goo Goo Dolls song the first time around.)
a regular decorated emergency.: Sam - microphonesdarkenedsakura on November 24th, 2007 01:19 am (UTC)
Alas, if you checked the last comment, you just got beat to those songs. D: Hahaha, I think that half of my songs must be incredibly guessable, and the other half...incredibly obscure or something?

But I know you know most of these so yeah, maybe it's just the musical tastes. Still, I think there's definitely...hm, one or two more on the list that you'd know, so rack your brain. :D
Alejandra (was here): my boysthat_september on November 24th, 2007 01:43 am (UTC)
Hahaha, 13 is "Tuesday Morning" by Michelle Branch!

As for the rest...eh, still not sure. xD
a regular decorated emergency.: Alias - Sydneydarkenedsakura on November 24th, 2007 01:46 am (UTC)
Bingo, there's one of them. :D

And WHERE ARE YOU I don't see you on MSN. D:
Raerae00 on November 24th, 2007 08:27 pm (UTC)
Must be.

After all, I know maybe two, and they've already been guessed. XD

And for that matter I think one of those is from me spamming you with random music. 8D
a regular decorated emergency.: Bleach - Rukiadarkenedsakura on November 25th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC)
Better luck next time? XD

Hmmm, looking at the list...nope, you didn't send me any of them. I didn't put the Lene Marlin song in this batch, nor any Five For Fighting. But I'll gladly accept more stuff from you? XDDD
Raerae00 on November 25th, 2007 10:43 am (UTC)
Not the previous batch; did I not send "Mad World" to you?
a regular decorated emergency.: Inaradarkenedsakura on November 25th, 2007 10:57 am (UTC)
Nope. I downloaded that ever since I saw the CSI ep that used it.
Raerae00 on November 25th, 2007 09:57 pm (UTC)
There was one? Huh. I got it from a friend, myself, which was why I figured I had passed it along to you.

So where is this alleged second set?
a regular decorated emergency.: Haine - smirkdarkenedsakura on November 26th, 2007 09:41 am (UTC)
Yeah, there was one. Season...I think it was six. If not, then five. Something like that.

You know how busy I am. Maybe right before/after finals. 8D
Raerae00 on November 26th, 2007 10:14 pm (UTC)
Like I'd know? 8D

Awwww. Well, good luck on those. Try not to let the music running through your head distract you. >)

#8 - Disease by Matchbox 20

#20 - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing by Jack Johnson

I ended up singing a bunch of lines before I arrived at the titles. Haha. Fun meme! Still, no clue with the other ones. xD
a regular decorated emergency.: Veronica - :)darkenedsakura on November 26th, 2007 09:48 am (UTC)
Yep, you got them! I knew you'd get 20, if I remember your layout correctly. XD

Hahaha, I did that with the other ones I saw too. "I know the song...I just...who sings it? D: " Now you should put it up too. :D :D
hazyhazy_undercover on December 9th, 2007 03:30 pm (UTC)
Yep, you're right, #20 is my LJ title! Loved that song! :)

I think I will post it too on my next entry, perhaps. Now I just have to make a list of songs and lyrics to put up. :D
kaiialyne on December 4th, 2007 03:38 am (UTC)
#22 . . .Criminal by Fiona Apple.
a regular decorated emergency.: Kathryn - phonedarkenedsakura on December 4th, 2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
Haha, of course.

And does this mean that you'll be less of a lurker on lj now, or not really?
