First Lines Meme

Okay, this meme was fun to do. Put on you media player, select "random" or "shuffle" and write down the first line of each song that plays, then post those first lines, without the song name or band. Post your guesses in the comments, and remember that using google is cheating :)

1. If there’s a prize for rotten judgment, I guess I’ve already won that.
2. You don't have to be beautiful to turn me on
3. All the birds have been blue, they don't know what to do
4. All around the country and coast, people always say what do you like most
5. When you're walking down the street and a man tries to steal your business
6. As I sit here surrounded by people and lies, along with my drink at the bar
7. I wrote her off for the tenth time today, practiced all of the things I would say
8. There's a lot of ways of saying what I want to say to you
9. I'm feeling nothing but all alone, just missing someone I don't even know
10. This is the one situation I wanted most to avoid
11. I had no choice but to hear you, you stated your case time and again
12. You know your old man was with me last night
13. Every finger in the room is pointed at me
14. You think you're gonna take her away, with your money and your cocaine
15. Hold on, hold on to yourself, for this is gonna hurt like hell
16. My friend the communist holds meetings in his office
17. As I walk this land of broken dreams, I have visions of many things
18. I can see you were right about this place, I can make a perfect likeness of your body if I trace
19. We've all seen the man at the liquor store begging for your change
20. Coming out of my cage and I'll be doing just fine

That is pretty cool. And as familiar as they all are, the only ones I know for sure are 11- Alanis Morissette and 16- Jewel. Sad I know.

How fun is this?!?!? Okay, I am pretty much music illiterate, but here goes... I'm thinkin' #4 is the infamous Heywood Banks with the toast song, I agree with Brandi that #11 is Alanis and #20 is The Killers (or is it with a "z"?) with Mr. Brightside. Although I can hear some of the other songs in my head, I have no clue as to who sings them or the titles :)
