Name That Lyric!

Everybody's doin' it! I copied the instructional text from nicodemusrat.

Put your MP3 player or whatever on shuffle and list a lyric from the first 25 songs that come up (without cheating) and invite people to guess the song. Googling is cheating.

First comment to correctly name a song takes honors for that one.
