1. Put your playlist on shuffle.

2. Post the first lines to the first 25 songs to come up (along with these instructions).

3. Have people guess the songs and artists in comments to the post. (will accept Musical titles in place of the Artist where approprate)

4. Post the answers to the ones people guessed correctly. A couple of days later, post the first two lines of the ones no one got and get people to guess again.

5. Repeat, adding the next line to the unguessed songs each time, until they're all guessed/you've posted the whole song/you've gotten bored/no-one's going to get the damn thing if you don't tell them.

Note: some songs were repeats of albums, much less artists. And some were instumental, while others I just couldn't figure out the words. Those were culled out.
