I noticed I haven't been posting much here recently so I am going to do what I always do in times like this: my iTunes meme. I hear you groaning. Seriously, is it that bad?

As a refresher, what is do is play iTunes and take the lyrics of the first 10 shuffled songs. Most of them will be from the start unless they are really well-known. In that case, you'll see (...) to know it's later in the song. I do have a wide range so it could be from the Big Band era or standards, oldies, showtunes and maybe some contemporary. Oh and some new age stuff too (though hopefully not too obscure).

Shall we get started? )
