Put your music player on shuffle. Write down the first line of the first twenty songs. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title. Where my player chose songs by an artists already selected I skipped on through those to get a wider selection.

Behold my poem of nonsense:

Survive tonight, I may be going down

Don't you love her madly?
This thing called love
You tell me you're leaving, I can't believe it's true

I get high on a buzz
The dream's dying mother
I'm an alligator

I find it in the atlas, flipping over old news
Monty, this seems strange to me.

Some of us are reaching for stardust
There's dirt in the machine, yeah where there's oxygen there's rust
Humidity is rising, barometer's getting low

You don't have a clue what it is like to be next to you
I've got a little black book with my poems in
still in a gondolier

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
I can't stand by and see you destroyed

Good golly said Little Miss Molly
I know I've been saying there's something I have to prove

Steady girl on your feet, you and your wandering
The city is a jungle, you'd better take care, never walk alone after midnight.

It's Raining Men! I hope that was the original and not Geri Halliwell (apologies in advance if it was the latter).

Apparently no one in R.E.M. even knew anything about Montgomery Clift, which is somewhat disappointing.

It was the original :D Geri Halliwell sucks mooseballs...

Though I feel I must apologise for not knowing anything about Montgomery Clift either. Though to be fair, I didn't write a song about him/it/her?

Good good. :)

Me neither! Except that he slept with a lot of people of both sexes and got addicted to painkillers and alcohol after being injured in a car crash. (I think he may have killed himself too.) So, all the salacious stuff basically. He doesn't seem to have made his way into the classic actor pantheon for some reason. Michael always professes to have these random cavernous gaps in pop culture knowledge some of which are more believable than others but he gets away with that one.

Monty was pretty cute ( though.

I had downloaded it because it was the audition track for the panto I'm in :D

And wow. He was. I feel sufficiently filled in on the salaciousness. What other gaps in the pop culture knowledge of Michael Stipe are less believable?

Haha, awesome! And you're in the panto? What role are you playing?

Sorry, I love collecting random facts about people. Its why I'm so good at pub quizzes. (Except for the sports rounds, obviously.)

Less believable is not hearing any Beatles songs or song titles until you're about 28 or something. Although maybe I was just brainwashed by my father.

I am in the panto, I am girl in disguise as a bloke, working as a bailiff trying to get money off Cinderella's father Baron Hardup.

Random facts are indeed the way to win. That is slightly unbelievable.. though I didn't listen to ANY modern music until I was 16 ish.
