Remember, you can go back at any time and add answers.


31) I know just what you're saying so please stop explaining
32) With the lights out, it's less dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us
33) I could put my arms around every boy I see
34) When you coming home, dad? I don't know when, we'll get together then
35) You got me wrapped around your finger
36) Lift your open hand, strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
37) I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is
38) Shake your head to the sound, put your hands on the ground
39) Show me how you want it to be. Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now
40) You gotta rub me the right way if you wanna be with me
41) So let's do it like they do on the Discovery channel
42) I blame you for the moonlit sky and the dream that died with the eagle's flight
43) At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake
44) I'm the one to take you on, don't underestimate me boy, I'll make you sorry you were born
45) Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs

music

32) Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit".
34) Harry Chapin (I think), "Cat's In The Cradle". I think there's a few versions of it about.
41) I've heard the bloody thing tons of times but never heard who it was...
42) Tamsin Archer, "Sleeping Satellite".
45) This one's just on the edge of memory... I'll guess Edwyn Collins, "Never Met A Girl Like You Before" as it almost seems to fit.

Very nice - straight into second place.

And thanks for proving me right. I was saying only last night that you'd do well at this when your shifts worked out. *grin*
