Welcome to This Heart of Mine

I'm getting this from my friend Erynn's Facebook note that she posted. I know it's unoriginal, but it's been a long day and I'm not sure I feel like writing anything too involved. I mean, I lectured on the importance of voting yesterday. Hopefully you went out and made an informed decision today. So now, just sit back, relax, and let the electoral process do its thing. Meanwhile, get interactive with tonight's post.

Step 1: Put your music player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line (or so, some are hard) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what SONG AND ARTIST the lines come from.
Step 4: Italicize the songs when someone guesses correctly (No lyric hunting! That is cheating!)
Step 5: After doing the 1st 20, listen to one more random song and post it as your title.

1. Down on my knees again tonight, I'm hopin' this prayer will turn out right
2. I'm the piano player down at Eddie's bar
3. How can you see into my eyes like open doors
4. If I could I would tell you why, the first time I saw her I could touch the sky
5. Try to see it my way, only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
6. Saying good-bye, going away. Seems like good-bye's such a hard thing to say
7. 2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm till awake
8. Livin' in my own world, didn't understand that anything can happen when you take a chance
9. All the old paintings on the tombs they do the sand dance don't you know

14. My love must be a kind of blind love
15. She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
16. Hello darkness, my old friend
17. Somewhere there's speaking it's already coming in
18. Manic Mondays singin' you to sleep, you could use some time to breathe wake up please
19. When the night has come and the land is dark

  3. Nice! Some good songs, except for maybe HSM.
    Your title song is Shaun Groves, "Welcome Home."

    I feel like I know a couple of the others, but they won't come to me.

    For the record, I knew six of the ones that have already been guessed.

  4. wait, when nicole wrote HSM as #8 she couldn't be referring to high school musical ... could she?

    oh dear.

    j "really?" h

  5. can't believe no one has guessed #14...it's a pretty well known song

    "I Only Have Eyes For You" by The Flamingos....or Frank Sinatra....or about a billion other people who have remade it.

    oh yeah, and #5 is "We Can Work It Out" by The Beatles.

    R 2tha H...or something else clever

    and btw, i've been calling your blog carp dime longer than you have!

  6. Yeah, I know you have. That's why I figured it would be a smooth transition...
