I Knew The Consequences

I liked MusicLikeDirt’s recent 21 song guessing game (Though I couldn’t guess a single one) so I decided to do my own.  Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Put your music player on random.
Step 2: Record the first line from the first 21 songs that play (Unless it’s an instrumental.  If so, skip on one).
Step 3: Name the post after the first line of the 22nd song you get.
Step 4: Post it and let everyone try and guess the songs (No Googling the lyrics… that wouldn’t be cricket!)

It can be fiendishly difficult but if you don’t get at least three straight of the bat from my list then there’s clearly something wrong (Christ, one of the first lines of one of the songs is the bloody title!).  Good luck:

Oh well I woke up tonight
When I was small and Christmas trees were tall
As the morning turned my way
You’re an idiot
I want a love that’s right
Oh my pen ran out the room
Hello Mr big-shot
Underground the heat is rising
You asked me to give up the hand of the girl I love
Since I met you this house has started to decay
Brazil, where hearts are entertained in June
On her way to work one morning
For you I was a flame
Sir you approve the proceedings
Yer now me and my baby walkin’ down the street
Once there was me, there was you
Fell in love with a girl
(The White Stripes – Fell In Love With A Girl)
Rag and bone, rag and bone, rag and bone, rag and bone
(The White Stripes – Rag & Bone)
When I see you my knees go weak
The last night on Maudlin Street
Well it took me a woman late last night

P.S. The22nd song was ‘Rocks & Penalties’ by Ohio Indie-Punk kids ShiSho.  Here it is:
