1. The Postal Service, This Place Is A Prison - recognised by skylar_muc
What does it take?
How long must I wait?
2. The Levellers, This Garden
The other day I saw a fox
He was running for his life
His eyes were wide but his mind was shut
To the redcoat's bugle calls
But when he got home his path was blocked
By some 'sportman's' clever guise
And if this is how far your culture's got
Then I deny it
3. Re-flex, The Politics Of Dancing
We got the message
I heard it on the airwaves
Are now dj's
4. Frank Sinatra, New York, New York - scatterheart got there first
And find I'm a number one, top of the list, king of the hill
A number one
5. Depeche Mode, Suffer Well - bogwitch got there first
I said take me back, I've changed my mind
Now I believe
6. Talk Talk, Such A Shame - scatterheart got there first
Maybe I don't know
if I should change
a feeling that we share.
7. The Dandy Warhols, Everyone Is Totally Insane
Hear me out, I must have changed
Some time and all at once
'Cause it seems
That nothing stays the same as certainly as me
And nothing stays the same but me
8. Talking Heads, This Must Be The Place (naive melody)
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead
9. Snow Patrol, Set The Fire To The Third Bar - recognised by skylar_muc

As drunken men find flaws in science

12. Eric Clapton, Malted Milk
My doorknob keeps on turning, there must be spooks around my bed.

I always loved you from the start
But I could not figure out

But like the dog that howls in the night
You fill my broken heart with fright
When I touch you the whole world sighs
When you touch me the whole world cries
16. Japan, Gentlemen Take Polaroids
And if you said you love me how could I mind?
Is there another side to everything you do?
17. The Stone Roses, Made Of Stone
Your pink fat lips let go a scream
You fry and melt; I love the scene
18. Thelma Houston, Don't Leave Me This Way - scatterheart got there first
Now come on down and do what you gotta do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now can't you see it's burning out of control
So come on satisfy the need in me
19. Keane, Sunshine
And only some dumb idiot
Would let you go
But if I'm one thing
Then that's the one thing

I'm a man, can't you see what I am?
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you?
21. Marillion, Kayleigh - speakr2customrs got there first
Do you remember dawn escapes from moon-washed college halls?
Do you remember the cherry blossom in the market square?
Do you remember I thought it was confetti in our hair?

Ploughmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth
23. John Lennon, How Do You Sleep? - magic_wanderer got there first
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do

24. Bent, As You Fall
So is this how (is this how)
You were found?
Like a star fallen
To the ground?
25. The Cranberries, Electric Blue
If you should go, you should know I love you
If you should go, you should know I'm here
26. The Monkees, I'm A Believer - speakr2customrs got there first

How can you ignore my faith in everything
When I know what faith is and what it's worth?
31. The Rolling Stones, Undercover Of The Night - speakr2customrs got there first
And sent to camps back in the jungle
And people whisper, people double-talk
And once proud fathers act so humble
32. Björk, Hidden Place
I'm so close to tears
and so close to simply calling you up

I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go
34. The Cure, Let's Go To Bed - bogwitch got there first

You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
