Sort of like that musical meme thing  
Except I can't put all my music on random with Winamp, since it's not all on one computer. So I'm going to randomly select a bunch of lines from 40 songs from about 12 mix CD's. A greater number of songs means more chances to be right or wrong! (Answers will be revealed on December 20, or earlier if people get all of them right)

Songs not guessed are in red, and the last time I checked, there were 11 of them.



1. I've got a 12-sided die / I've got a Dungeon Master's guide (Sylune The Sigher)
2. Survival of the fittest, Max, and we've got the fucking guns!(Gnfnrf)
3. You didn't cover my face / I didn't merit a communal grave
4. Nothing's ventured, nothing's gained / So I must seize the day (Sylune The Sigher)
5. Everybody knows / That the world is full of stupid people (Calypsomatic - Full Credit / Sylune - Partial Credit)
6. Might I say, it seems so fitting / In its way, he was a carpenter by trade / At least that's what I'm told
7. And I won't leave / And I can't hide / I cannot be (Sylune The Sigher)
8. You would take me to the beach / You would take me to a place inside that is so hard to reach
9. You're lucky to even know me / You're lucky to be alive (Robodyke)
10. You gave me nothing / Now it's all I've got (Sylune The Sigher)
11. I've set my sights on you (And no one else will do) (Drowdancer)
12. But either way / I wanna kill you / I wanna blow you / Away (Sylune The Sigher)
13. You're waiting for someone to put you together / You're waiting for someone to push you away (Sylune The Sigher / Avatar of Chaos)
14. Boy's fifteen but he's sixteen gauge
15. Explain to the courtroom what went through your mind / And we'll ask the jury what verdict they find (Sylune The Sigher)
16. Mire en el tomate (Look at the tomato) (Maerchen)
17. It's a cold, sad fact of reality / And now my anger is starting to grow
18. Neon shines through smoky eyes, tonight / It's 2 AM I'm drunk again (Sylune The Sigher)
19. How many times do I have to try to tell you that I'm sorry for the things I've done (Sylune The Sigher)
20. Words keep are always getting in my way / Any way I love you (Drowdancer)
21. I got bitches in my living room getting it on / And they ain't leavin til six in the morn (Utility Geek)
22. For the queen he was no wheeler-dealer / Though she'd heard the things he'd done (Neosis)
23. Trumpets sound when I push the program / And set my sight on a serpent man
24. It's make believe / All that you see
25. There's no point in living / If you can't feel alive (Utility Geek)
26. Remember / What the dormouse said (Cleo)
27. If I'm not back again this time tomorrow / Carry on, carry on (Avatar of Chaos)
28. If not for me then you'd be dead / I picked you up, put you back on solid ground (Seiryu)
29. One's on a pole / Shove the other in a bag (Utility Geek)
30. Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy / She'll beat you if she's able (Drowdancer)
31. I'm a devious degenerate defender of the devil / Shut down all the trash compactors on the detention level
32. Keep smiling through / Just like you always do (Maerchen)
33. I want to be a new original creation / A cross between a moose a monkey and a fig (This one is pretty obscure)
34. When I am King/ You will be first against the wall (Drowdancer)
35. In a better way impart / All the love that's in your heart / For it's possible she may retort in kind (This one is also pretty obscure)
36. You make me make me make me make me hungry again (Cleo)
37. It's Friday night and she's all alone / He's a million miles away (Avatar of Chaos)
38. Tell me why / My car is in the front yard (Avatar of Chaos)
39. Some day flowers will grow there / But first you've got to go there (Robodyke -Full Credit / Avatar of Chaos - partial credit)
40. Oh your reputation's so golden / You're never lonely, and you're never home

You're absolutely right on all the band names - as for song names, 4 is "Standing" and 5 is . . . well, I'm sure somebody else will come up with that one.

39? Yeah . . . I should fix that . . .

What does it say that most of the ones unguessed are the ones that I think are the most fucking obvious?

Well, most of the unguessed ones did come from CD's you gave me . . .
