First lines

I went to the cinema with a couple of friends last night. We saw Mamma Mia! and liked it. In our younger years, we all hated ABBA with a passion, they were so uncool; but now we can't resist tapping out the beat and singing along to all the songs that we mysteriously know all the lyrics to...

And speaking of lyrics, because it's a Sunday and I really haven't got anything else to write about, here's my version of the First Line-meme!

Step 1: Put your mp3-player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly. (Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!)
