A Musical Meme

Because this meme gives you some idea of my taste in music, and because it takes time to do (an hour), I'm going to say this counts as an entry.

Music Meme (stolen (this time around) from crazedturkey)

I've done this before and many of you saw it. So, a change! I give you the first line of the SECOND VERSE of 20 songs (as chosen by Media Player) and you have to guess what they are. Comments will be screened so as smart-arses don't spoil the fun.

To make it a little more relevant (and to ensure I know the words!), I will limit the songs to those that are given "5 Stars" on Media Player.



Remember, I've added the extra challenge because what we're looking at here is the first line of VERSE 2 of the song. Extra points if you can tell me the next line.

Feel free to debate my concept of a verse.

1. You see my peep-show booth is handy...

2. We watch the shows, we watch the stars...

3. Come dowsed in mud...

4. I hit the highways...

5. When I sally forth to seek my prey...

6. I took her to a supermarket...

7. She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me...

8. You pull the tides up around me...

9. Sometimes I feel I've got to run away...

10. Hot, cold, I've been told that you're kind of amazing...

11. Who said that every wish would be heard and answered...

12. There's only so much I can take...

13. Blind romance, there'll be no half measures given half a chance...

14. In a single moment you might be perfect...

15. I was in your arms, thinking I belonged there...

16. It's gonna be winter...

17. You're essentially an employee...

18. Walkin' and always talkin'...

19. Out of body and out of mind...

20. I wish that I was like Tori Spelling...

6 - Common People by Pulp (or William Shatner!)
11 - Rainbow Connection (is that what it's called?) My version is Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, but wasn't it done by the Muppets?

2. Radio Ga-Ga by Queen. Next line: "on video for hours and hours/we hardly need to use our ears/our music changes through the years..."
3. Come As You Are by Nirvana. Next line: "soaked in bleach, as I want you to be."
5. The Pirate King Song from the Pirates of Penzance. Next line: "I help myself in a royal way."
9. That'd be (DAH DAH) Tainted Love, oooo, (DAH DAH) Tained Love by (DAH DAH) Soft Cell, though I'd guess yours is the Living End version. Next line: "I've got to (all together...DAH DAH) get away..."
13. Persuasion by Tim Finn or Stellar* (both versions are good). Next line: "...but we never learn, trusting in the fire while the cruel flame burns."
14. Lovesong by Amiel. Next line: "...and sit in a window of my life."
16. Here Comes September by Waikiki. Next line: "and I guess you'll never know, 'cos in California it doesn't snow."
18. Mascara by Killing Heidi. Next line: "Never listening, you just kick back." (I think)
20. Supermodel by Jill Sobule. Next line: "With a car like hers and a dad like hers."

Do I get a prize?

Aiiiieeee! 11. is The Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog!! That's so cool! and it continues "When wished on the morning star" :)

And 14. is "Love song" by Amiel...I think it keeps going "and sit in a window of my life" but I have a strong feeling that I'm making that up...
