Tumblr Music Meme

This was cool. I posted it on my Tumblr and figured I would share it here, too:

Put your music player on shuffle. 

The first lines of twenty songs = a poem; the first line of the twenty-first song is the title.


Tall and tan and young and lovely,
When the outside temperature rises,
You must be my lucky star,
I am the biggest hypocrite.

There's a shadow just behind me,
This is the clock up on the wall,
Come on girls - Do you believe in love?
Here we are hanging on strains of greed and blues.

Everybody comes to Hollywood,
I was walking down the street,
Come with me, my love,
My baby makes me proud.

Well it's not working anymore,
They told him Don't you ever come around here,
Something has changed within me,
Well, since my baby left me.

When you're alone and life is making you lonely,
Well, we're movin' on up,
You walked in to the party,
Hello darkness my old friend.

  1. ha. there are some pretty ironic lines here and it came ou actually really nice...

  2. That was awesome and no less plausible as any crappy pop song out there. Just put it to music and sing away and you got U2s next big hit.

  3. Hi! Caffeinated Joe...
    All I can say is...uber(ly) cool.
    Thanks, for sharing!
    DeeDee ;-D
    [Postscript: You know that I'am going to try it too!}

  4. I caught some sweet ass TOOL in there Joe, good work my friend =D

  5. Oh what fun! I'll have to try this out sometime. And I should have known you'd be a coffee expert...."Caffeinated Joe"! Happy Friday the 13h! :o)

  6. ha, didn't this come out well!

  7. Okay, that was a lot of fun. I am going to have to kill some time today and give that a try. Thanks for sharing.


  8. I remember this on MySpace - it was one of those things everyone did and would post :) Before my blogging days.
