All the cool kids are doing it. I put the music library on shuffle play, and after taking out the stuff that didn't fit (instrumentals, This American Life episodes, etc.) here are the first lines of the top 20 entries. A couple are gimmes, most are obscure.

1. My sex change operation got botched
2. So farewell to god's own country
3. If it were love I would give that love every second I had
4. Cry baby cry, cry cry to heaven
5. Now once upon a time an old man told me a fable
6. What's the buzz, tell me what's happening
7. Big fat fuck from North Carolina state
8. This is control, this is control
9. Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
10. This could be heaven
11. Some people like to relax in casinos
12. Sometimes I get to feeling I was back in the old days
13. Evening folks. Whatcha got? Doctor home? No he's not.
14. Christmas bells are ringing

15. Birds flying high, you know how I feel
16. You know if you break my heart I'll go
17. Fire Island, it's a funky weekend
18. Isn't it nice, sugar and spice
19. It's automatic when I talk with old friends
20. Don't go changing to try and please me

Yes, I really do own number 9. And number 11 cracks me up.
