step 1: put your music player on shuffle.
step 2: post the first line from the first 15 (25 for me!) songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
step 2a: Skip any instrumentals and songs where the first line is or contains the title.
step 2b: Also where the song is in a foreign language which you can't actually understand well enough to transcribe.
step 3: strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.

step 5: if you like the game, post your own.
