01)
I should've stopped to think - I should've made the time
I could've had that drink - I could've talked a while
I would've done it right - I would've moved us on
But I didn't - now it's all too late

02) My Sweet Prince, Placebo - guessed by laura_isaac
Never thought I’d get any higher
Never thought you’d fuck with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you’d go break the chain


03) Girl Afraid, The Smiths - guessed by grapefruitzzz
But she doesn't even LIKE me!
And I know because she said so.


04) People Are Strange, The Doors/Echo & The Bunnymen - guessed by laura_isaac
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange


05) A Pain That I'm Used To, Depeche Mode - guessed by bogwitch
I don't need to believe all the dreams you conceive
You just need to achieve something that rings true


06) Dancing Queen, ABBA - guessed by deadflowerss
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music’s high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You’re in the mood for dance
And when you get the chance...


07)
and I say your uncle was a crooked French Canadian
and he was gut-shot running gin
and how his guts were all suspended in his fingers
and how he held 'em
how he held 'em, held 'em in

08)
The crowd, they all hailed you and chanted your name
But they never knew like we knew me and you were the same
And now you're all over, your song is so tame
You fed me, you bred me, I'll remember your name

09) Handbags & Gladrags, Rod Stewart/Stereophonics - guessed by laura_isaac
They told me you missed school today
So I suggest you just throw them all away


10) Sign o' the Times, Prince - guessed by bogwitch
Sister killed her baby cuz she couldn't afford 2 feed it
And we're sending people 2 the moon
In September my cousin tried reefer 4 the very first time
Now he's doing horse; it's June


11) Police On My Back, The Clash - guessed by caegey
I've been running Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday running
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Saturday Sunday


12) Happy Hour, The Housemartins - guessed by grapefruitzzz
And then we ask all the questions
And you take all your clothes off
And go back to the kitchen sink


13)
'Cause I built you a home in my heart,
with rotten wood, it decayed from the start.

14) Desire, U2 - guessed by itsabigrock
Like a preacher stealing hearts at a travelling show
for love of money money money
money money money money money
money money money


15) Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, Soft Cell - guessed by frimfram
What about me? well
I'll find someone
That's not going cheap in the sales
A nice little housewife
Who'll give me a steady life
And won't keep going off the rails


16) Is She Really Going Out With Him?, Joe Jackson - guessed by chantal87
Here comes Jeanie with her new boyfriend
They say that looks don't count for much
And so there goes your proof


17) Stretch Out And Wait, The Smiths - guessed by grapefruitzzz
So ignore all the codes of the day
Let your juvenile impulses sway
This way and that way and this way and that way
God, how sex implores you
To let yourself lose yourself


18) Tracks Of My Tears - guessed by deadflowerss
Ooh yeah since you put me down
My smile is my makeup
I wear since my breakup with you


19)
I'm watching as the gulls all settle down
Upon the empty vessels
The faded whites of their wedding gowns
The songs of hopeless selflessness

20)
What they say,
does it make you feel ashamed?
Isn't everyone the same?
Does it matter that it wasn't your idea?

21)
Ed il mio bacio scioglierà.
Il silenzio che ti fa mio!

Il nome suo nessun saprà!
E noi dovrem, ahimè, morir!

22) Eyes Without A Face, Billy Idol - guessed by chantal87
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers


23) Golden Brown, The Stranglers - guessed by bogwitch
Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown


24) Last Dance, Donna Summer - guessed by chantal87
Oh I need you, by me,
Beside me, to guide me,
To hold me, to scold me,
'cause when I'm bad
I'm so, so bad


25)
Te parece confundida
Su pasión está escondida
Nunca sabes lo que va a decir
Cuando empieza a sonreír

26) Here, Vast - guessed by itsabigrock and bogwitch*
Where do I put the books?
There's so many I could read
But they all are filled with lies
Where do I put the lies?
There's so many I could say
But it seems they're in the books


*credit given jointly as itsabigrock interpreted having to check the liner notes to remind herself of the song title as breaking the NO LOOKING IT UP!-rule, and suggested I give it to the next person who got it right...but then bogwitch confessed she got it from itsabigrock's clue.

27)
P-p-p-pneumothorax is a word that is long
They're just trying to put some punk back into punctured lung

28)
I was a big ol' bear once (x4)
And I walked away from California
And I walked away from everything that's known
And I walked away from everything I lived for
Only to find that everything had grown

29)
You look down on me
Don't you look down on me now
You don't know me at all
A slap in the face
In the face for you now
Just might do now

30) Boys Keep Swinging, David Bowie - guessed by grapefruitzzz
When you're a boy
You can buy a home of your own
When you're a boy
Learn to drive and everything


31)
You put me on a shelf
And kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself
You can only blame me

32) Mack the Knife, Frank Sinatra - guessed by frimfram
From a tug boat by the river
There's a cement bag just dropping on down
The cement's there just for the weight, dear
Five will get you ten old Mack is back in town


33) Hounds Of Love, Kate Bush - guessed by bogwitch
Take my shoes off,
And throw them in the lake,
And I'll be two steps on the water.


34) Killer Queen, Queen/Travis - guessed by laura_isaac
Drop of a hat she's as willing, as playful as a pussycat
Then momentarily out of action, temporarily out of gas
to absolutely drive you wild, wild..
She's all out to get you...


35) Tom's Diner, Suzanne Vega - guessed by itsabigrock
I open up the paper
There's a story of an actor
Who had died while he was drinking
It was no one I had heard of

All correct - although if truth be told, the version of no. 4 on my player is the original, by The Doors; but there are a couple of songs here that were covered by more than one artist and I reckon as long as you mention one, it's all good.

I'll give you #18, Tracks Of My Tears, as it's one of those songs that got covered by a multitude of artists. My version is by Big Country; the original is Smokey Robinson's.

6. Dancing Queen - ABBA
16. Is she really going out with him - Jackson Browne
22. Eyes without a face - Billy Idol
24. last Dance - Donna Summer

I think we have the same play list.:-)

Not quite, because I have never ever heard anything by Jackson Brown...so he's done a cover of Is She Really Going Out With Him, then? Bet it's not as good as the a cappella live version by it's original artist that I have on my player! ;-)

I'll give it you anyway, though.

15 is 'Say Hello, Wave Goodbye' by Soft Cell.
32 is 'Mack the Knife' - let's say the Sinatra version.

What, was everyone else too embarrassed to guess those? ;)

3. "Back To The Old House"- The Smiths.

Sadly, no. It is The Smiths, but not that song. You're right on the other two, though.
