From impensada. I've done similar things in the past, though.

Step 1: Put your music player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line (I'm doing a variation that includes the entire first stanza, though) from the first 20 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: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
(Comments in parantheses are not part of lyrics, but my own personal comments.)

1. Its like I never had to see it in your eyes or feel it
I could tell when you smile.

2. The working day was long
And the road is grinding on
And your body’s winding down again
The tribal fire’s here
And the circle speaks so near
And the simple truth so very much clearer

"Somewhere Only We Know" Keane

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

4. Polar opposites don't push away
It's the same on the weekends as the rest of the days
And I know I should go but I'll probably stay
And that's all you can do about some things

5. (No one will get this.)
Is my life not all that I thought it would be?
Is it simply ordinary?
Oh, is it far from all my fantasies?

"Energy" The Apples in Stereo

And the world is made of energy
and the world is electricity
and the world is made of energy
and there's a light inside of you
and there's a light inside of me.

7. Let it never be said, the romance is dead
Cos there’s so little else occupying my head
There is nothing I need except the function to breathe
But I’m not really fussed, doesn’t matter to me

8. Hey, calling all imaginary friends!
Today, don't want no one to tell me how it ends
Took breathing for granted
and now i don't know how to breathe
something that you planted
just won't get up and leave

Panda Panda Panda Panda

"Mellow Yellow" by Donovan

I'm just mad about Saffron
Saffron's mad abou me
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just about me

11. (This is so wrong, considering I have a brother named Brian.)
Brian, tender kisses run run run is my wish for you
Brian, tender drops of blood run run run I'm thinking of you
how far does your brother go with you?

12. Fresh, fragile fetus
Feeling funny, feeling faint
Finding fingers, finding feet, finding fun
Fresh, fragile fetus
Feeling foxy, feeling fine
Following footsteps from far, far, far

13. This is a public service announcement . . . with guitar!

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" Nirvana

14. Load up on guns
Bring your friends
Its fun to lose
And to pretend
Shes overboard
Myself assured
I know I know
A dirty word

"Tribute" by Tenacious D

15. This is the greatest and best song in the world . . . tribute

16. You say what you want to Jack
I'm gonna get my baby back
Trouble came, ran away
Now you say she's gone to stay

17. Guessed by xo_prettywords
"O Valencia!" by The Decemberists

You belong to the gang
But you say you can't break away
But I'm here with my hands on my heart

18. You're dead, but the world keeps spinning
Take a spin through the world you've left
It's getting dark a little too early
Are you missing the dearly bereft?

"Be Gentle With Me" Boy Least Likely To

Staring up into the solar system
All the stars are fixed up in the sky
I just want to sparkle for a moment
Before I just fizzle out and die
I'm happy because I'm stupid
Scared of spiders, scared of flying
If I wasn't so happy, I wouldn't be so scared of dying

20. (So embarrassing)
I tried to discover
A little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain
From breaking my heart

Tribute or Tribute Song?

Yep, you got that one right. And #20 is indeed in Scrubs. It's the episode where Dr. Nguyen starts singing it and everyone else has it in their heads.

#13 is not Eminem. Gimme some credit! It's classic rock.
