A little Audience Participation is needed...

I got this from Gwen whose site I love to read.

The Rules:
Step 1: Put your iPod/MP3 player or iTunes on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post it on your blog and let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Update the list with the song title when someone guesses correctly. (I will identify any unguessed songs by Tuesday and put them in italics after the song)
Step 5: Make your guesses by leaving a comment or sending me email. You have to identify both title and artist, and you're not allowed to Google any of these, either.

rule exception: I love covers, so you probably won't guess the artist of some of these, but that's okay.

so, here goes..
1. Remember the weight of the world It's a sound that we used to buy.
2. Well you can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a woman's man, no time to talk.

10. Well I'm driving downtown in my big red cadillac, sipping on iced wine and mixing it with Similac.
