10-19-08: Lyrics Scavenger Hunting

From time to time I'll get a particular line from a song stuck in my head and will realize that I forgot the title of the song. It can be frustrating, but it's also quite intriguing for me. I then play a little game I call "Lyrics Scavenger Hunting."

This particular game has become about 500 times easier to play since the internet became so easy to search. Thanks Google! But it's still interesting. Sometimes I'll restrict myself when I know it's from a song in my iTunes library. If I remember the artist, I'll just take my best guess and listen to various songs until the particular lyric pops up. It's quite exhilarating, actually.

But most of the time, the line will be from a song I heard on the radio, or just a song I haven't heard in a while and it pops into my head (maybe from a commercial on TV or something). Those are really fun, especially if I only remember three or four words. I usually go onto Google and type "lyrics" and add the words I remember. The results can be surprising.
