Answers to Lyric Meme

Answers to the random song lyrics meme I had posted awhile back are below. Answers to my LJ meme (the link there's in my original post) are here just in case you were wondering. :)

The ones that are stricken out have been guessed (and the correct guesser named - in this case all were guessed by James). The ones that are in bold were not guessed, and the answers are underneath. Oh, and it's not your imagination that two songs are repeated. That happens on random play sometimes. *g* The strange thing I noticed was that I listed the same line twice! Ah well ..
