was reading through some journals and came across a quick and dirty lyrics game in chikkiboo's journal involving first lines to songs from a couple of days ago. I thought it'd be fun to do here today, since I'm bored. Here's the first lines to 50 songs. No comment screening, no points, just something fun to play on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Give your answers before reading the comments, Google'n 'n shit is cheat'n, yo.

33) Jeremiah was a bullfrog
34) I saw her today at the reception
35) Something in the way you love me won't let me be

While I could only pick a few of the songs, I have two friends on my list whe would of a certainty breeze it through. Both phonographgirl and xionin are legend for remembering lyrics. I have battled the first one, Corrie, many a time in chat with a random line from a song and except for the odd
british or most Australian lyrics, find it almost impossible to stump her. Mind you, she floored me one time when I caught her out with what I thought would have been an easy one, Ike and Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits.
