Life is pretty hard right now, and so blogging is even harder. So I’m going to take part in an old style blog/livejournal/xanga survey, based on music because it’s been the only thing I’ve been able to absorb for the last four months.

First 20 songs on shuffle, and your favourite line/lyric from the song.

  1. Collide by Howie Day – “Don’t stop here, I lost my place, I’m close behind”
  2. Sweets for my Sweet by The Searchers – “Darling, I would chase that bright star nightly and try to steal it from the sky”

  12. Innuendo by Queen – “Just turn yourself into anything you think you could ever be”
  13. Then I Met You by The Proclaimers – It’s a tie between “Thought the song was sung and I could never sing another” andĀ  “And then one night I went to Morningside and you were waiting”
