No. 7 is Matchbox 20 - something like 'Push'.

No. 17 is...Alanis Morisette? I have no idea what the song is called, though.

Aug. 23rd, 2007 07:32 am (UTC)
Yep, Push.

Damn! I should have got Nos. 6 and 11. I feel obliged to point out that you've nominated me as getting Rainbow Connection even though I didn't! Damn, because I should have. Having said that, now that you've given the first line you've jogged my memory and I know that No. 1 is Sugar Cane by Missy Higgins, No. 7 is Push by Matchbox 20, and I think no. 12 is a Corrs song. Cookie?

A cookie for getting Sugar Cane and Push but no cookie for the Corrs song, though it is one.
