Song lyrics meme: gacked from speakr2customrs

* Put your music player on random.
* Post the first line from the first 32 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
(Like Speakr, I’ve cheated slightly and edited out obscure album tracks, replacing them with the next song along).
* Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
* Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
* Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Comments will be screened until I can reach the computer to confirm. *grin*

Yep - all present and correct.

And you really should get yourself a music player - for the random shuffle alone if nothing else! :)

I can't believe I'm going to guess this, but I'm thinking 11 is "Respectable" by (I think) Mel & Kim.

Incidentally, 8 is starting to sound like Take On Me by A-Ha.

And 9 is, I think, the Scissor Sisters' I Can't Decide.

Whoops - meant to say regarding the Phantom song: ha! So not the techno version.

[small-voice]it was the punk rock version by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes[/small-voice]

10 - I've been on tenterhooks
Ending in dirty looks,

Is Pump it up - Elvis Costello, possibly with the Attractions, I can't remember.

22. It's not the way you lead me
By the hand into the bedroom

Erasure - I can hear them it in my head, but I don't know what it is called.
