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*

Songs are listed for download in the order their lyrics appear above.  ^^

Oh my, how long did this take you?

Oh yeah, and stealing the meme. Sounds fun.

Uh, well, including having to wait for all the songs and my Winamp going insane, maybe an hour?

Such a dedicate LJ friend.

Mostly I was procrastinating working on one of my papers. <.

Alright, I have to do this again. I should just use it as part of my Creative Writing final if it turns out any good >.>

Haha, there's always that. XDD
