Problem is, I don't listen to playlists -- I just pick an album and tell the thing to play. So I'll just mix this with the "put all your songs on random" one from a while back.
step one: queue up every mp3 you have (yes, even the embarrasing ones) and tell your player to play them at random.
step two: post a line of lyrics from each of the first twenty (that have lyrics) it plays (try to avoid posting the song title as part of the line).
step three: strikeout the lines as people correctly guess them (without using google).
step five: Profit!
