Ganked from asa101:

step 1: listen to all your songs on random
step 2: post the first line from the first 20 songs
step 3: let everyone you know guess and post what song and artist the lines come from.
step 4: cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly
step 5: looking them up on google is cheating

Had to skip a bit 'cos there's a fair bit of instrumental stuff on my player, and some things in Tuvan and such...

Jimmy's gone to Flanders, his fiddle lies upon the bed
Going in through the side door, no need to worry now the coast is clear
Bo Diddley bought his baby a diamond ring tafkad
A farmer there lived in the north country, a hey ho bonny o
I've seen you in the day, a strong young man
What's the spring-breathing jasmine and rose?
Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with the top in the heavens
Our schooner and our sloop in Ferryland they did lie keshwyn
You give it to me, you got to let it go
I went home with a waitress, the way I always do ambug666
Forty-seven deadbeats livin' in a backstreet ambug666
Give me give me all your lovin', give me all your kissin' and huggin'
They smile like nothing happened, they look out on the sea
Tread softly when you leave, a journey safe to you
Oh, come and take me away
And through the wire I hear your voice keshwyn
Oh, I wonder, yes I wonder
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday ambug666
Step right up, step right up, everyone's a winner ambug666
Aw, here it is three o'clock in the morning

Interesting mix- some easy ones, some not so easy.

The easy ones:

I went home with a waitress, the way I always do -- Lawyers, Guns, & Money, Warren Zevon
Forty-seven deadbeats livin' in a backstreet -- Wild Wild West, Escape Club
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday -- Piano Man, B. Joel.
Step right up, step right up, everyone's a winner - Step Right Up, Tom Waits

I'm carefully not looking at anybody else's comments before I post... :) The way we always did this one, you picked the lyric to post, not necessarily the first one, as (for obvious reasons) it sometimes give the song title away. But here I go.

Our schooner and our sloop in Ferryland they did lie
Great Big Sea, Ferryland Sealer

Forty-seven deadbeats livin' in a backstreet
?, Wild, Wild West (never knew the artist, not looking it up 'cause that's cheating :)

And through the wire I hear your voice
Peter Gabriel, And Through The Wire

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
Billy Joel, Piano Man

Bo Diddley bought his baby a diamond ring - Bo Diddley's a Gunslinger, Warren Zevon

or, more accurately, that may be the first line of that song, but it's not the title or artist of the song I was listening to.

Nah, it's not the first line. I missed that part. (And it's slightly different, once I looked it up.)

Gimme all your lovin all your huggin kissin too, ZZ Top, Title is the same as the lyrics, Eliminator is the Album and the tour kicked ass!!!

No, not that, though I can see why you'd pick it... that's the chorus of the ZZ Top song, not the first line...

I know that last one and it will drive me crazy until I get it.

Bo Diddley bought his baby a diamond ring</> - Bo Diddley - Bo Diddley
