Yes and yes, but I can't really give you a point for it.

Ooh, bugger. It's by a band beginning with The, I think.

This will irritate me all night, you realise.

Feb. 6th, 2007 11:29 am (UTC)
Ooh! I was wrong on 1! Sorry. It's actually Bring Me to Life! I wasn't thinking when I replied yes.

Also, it's Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House.

4. Under Pressure - David Bowie and Queen
5. Four Seasons in One Day - Crowded House
7. Come As You Are - Nirvana
8. Dreams? - Its a Cranberries song, I know that. But I can't remember if that's the title or not
17. Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House
23. Don't Speak - No Doubt?
25. Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet

24 is so bloody familiar and I can sort of hear the the tune in my head. It's the one where the line that follows is like "5 days since you...somethingsomething...angry?" or something like that?

Oh well, don't you love it when the titles of the songs are mentioned in the first lyric? :P It's the only way I can really feel confident playing this kind of game.
the_kaytinator
Feb. 6th, 2007 11:27 am (UTC)
