Doin' the iPod shuffle!

Don't get too excited, it's just a meme. But I saw it on Valerie's blog and thought it looked cool, so here you have it.
Step 1: Put your iPod or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the 1st line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. And it doesn't have to be perfect if you can't understand the lyrics word for word.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

  3. He's got a roadmap of Jupiter, radar fix on the stars all along the highway - Rush, "Dreamline" (Gonna give DH credit since he could name the album)

  30. Midnight, gettin' uptight, where are you? You said you'd meet me now it's quarter to two. - Joan Jett, "I Hate Myself for Loving You" (Polimex)

This is only a subset of the iPod - I have a lot of classical and choral stuff on my iPod so I've restricted it to my car playlist (which is rather eclectic as it is). I also skipped over a few where the title was in the first line (for example "You ain't nothing but a hound dog").

Anyway, have fun.
