Put iTunes on shuffle, take the first line from the first 20 songs and use them to make a poem. Use the first line of the 21st song as the title.



The Queen of Night

I got sunshine on a cloudy day
She said I know what it's like to be dead
After school, walking home, fresh dirt under my fingernails
Memories consume like opening the wound
Ooh, what a little moonlight can do
The reception's gotten fuzzy
Oh, lately it's so quiet in this place
I've wandered around with nothing but time on my hands
What's this? What's this?
The camera doesn't lie, this is what we've done
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
Late night-- the house is empty still
If anything it should have been a better thing
I woke up today to find myself in the other place
I walk a lonely road
Chewin' on a piece of grass, walkin' along the road
Poison like the air we breathe
Someday you'll say my name and I won't answer
Walk home with me for I have news for you
All that you touch and all that you see

Dude, you changed the order of the songs, I didn't know you could do that. Mine are in the order they came up.

Wait, The Mountain Goats wrote a song about Dilaudid? I must have this. A song that is both John Green-tastic and Spencer Reid-tastic, so jokes.

Dude, clearly I fail.

OMG HOW HAVE YOU NOT HEARD "DILAUDID," it's the first Mountain Goats Song I ever heard, way way before I found out John Green loved them!

that worked really well! and technically, it doesn't say you have to have them in order....it just says you have to use the first lines from the first 20 songs to make a poem...

That... makes an oddly good Supernatural-ish poem.
