I was going to make a meaningful update, but then [ profile] coreopsis and [ profile] instrumentality posted this meme and I remembered that months ago I had carefully shuffled my music and written it up but never posted it. So, here it is, the first lines iPod meme:

First Line Meme

Instructions (which have been different for every person I've seen post it, which is as it should be): Put your iPod on shuffle. Take the first 20 songs. Post only the first lines of the lyrics of those songs and see if anyone can guess what songs the lyrics belong to. No Googling allowed!

You will also note that there are 22 songs listed. I did this because #3 and and #9 turned out to be really kind of unfair, so I left them in as super-bonus lyrics. Also, despite the fact that there are over 5,000 tracks on my iPod, this is a shockingly accurate microcosm of my musical tastes. Go figure.

1. There's nought but care on every hand
2. Innocent, and in a sense I am
*3. Buachaill on eireann me's bheas faoi fein cailin deas og
4. In my dream, I'm suddenly in the army
5. Today I feel like Dorothy Parker
6. In a night just like this, in a place far away, he met with a girl in the spring
7. The sunrise above them, as they make their way
8. It's not enough, it's not enough
*9. Seal go rabhas im' mhaighdean shéimh
10. Will this be moon love?
11. I sent my crack divisions through the early morning mists
12. I hear something saying
13. First time I saw you, you were Mr. Natural
14. The guests are stood in silence
15. By the storm-torn shoreline a woman is standing
16. So high above the world tonight
17. When the great collector found her, she was just a girl
18. Every single night, the same arrangement, I go out and fight the fight
19. In the corner of my eye
20. You told the man in the Broadway hotel
21. Ten years ago, on a cold dark night "The Long Black Veil," this version recorded by Mick Jagger and The Chieftains, from the entirely awesome eponymous album The Long Black Veil. Guessed by [ profile] malnpudl.
22. I'm ready, I'm ready for the laughing gas
