So I wanted to make a music post, but I couldn't really pick which songs and didn't just want to have a list of links because that's boring.  So I'm repeating a meme!

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

If You Could Read My Mind, Love

Well I'm on my way to the city lights,
I remember setting out just to see what I could see,
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell,
You get up every morning.

I pulled into Nazareth, I was feeling about half-past dead;
It has been raining for so long
I got everything I need - almost

Get you motor running:
There is a town in north Ontario

Something's at the edge of your mind, you don't know what it is
Could have been all right, could have been here tonight

I know it's out of fashion:
Life's like a road that you travel on -
Can you see the light?
Four men in a rock'n'roll band

I got stones in my passway
Two hundred miles from my home
What goes up must come down

One fine morning, girl, I'll wake up:
American woman, stay away from me.

This lyric poem meme thingy is themed, though.  All the lyrics are from Canadian songs!  Because we have produced some very awesome music.  *nodnod*
