Lyrics meme

Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
Step 3: Strike-out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

(I admit that I cheated. I had to skip through at least 50 songs that were instrumental or in another language. I also skipped repeat artists, otherwise all the songs would be by only two or three different bands. I also adjusted the first lines to what I would need to hear to recognize it.

Some are easy, some no one will probably get. If I get attempts at guessing ten songs, I'll post the list again with the song name and artist info.)

1) The day has come to an end, the sun is over my head

2) Pushing through the market square "Five Years" by David Bowie (Jacob)

3) I want to, I want to be someone else or I'll explode

4) I work all night, I work all day

5) It was only one hour ago. It was all so different then

6) Oh, I was moved by your screen dream. Celluloid pictures living

7) Stoplight, lock the door. Don't look back.

8) Tension, tension. Tension is all that I know

9) She's addicted to nicotine patches

10) After all these implements and text designed by intellects

11) Stick me with pins. Peel away my skin

12) Come on in, sweetie-pie. Have an apple, have some lye

13) Little salamander, where did you go?

14) Let's take the time to find out what's inside, away from all this wind and rain

15) She's got a smile that it seems to me

16) All around me are familiar faces

17) Man, it’s a hot one

18) Another head hangs lowly, child is slowly taken.

19) You won't admit you love me. And so, how am I ever to know?

20) I was five and he was six. We rode on horses made of sticks

21) As soon as you're born, they make you feel small

22) Gummed up, brain dead and can't decide

23) Reaching over, life to life, feeling sugared skin

24) The stranger sang a theme, from someone else's dream

25) Killing in the name of...

26) When you feel all alone and the world has turned its back on you

27) Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk

28) Just two guys and we're having a good time

29) There isn't any water

30) Don't tell your man what he don't do right

Is #4 the Lumberjack song by ... Monty Python?

Nope, not even close. But it actually is a good guess.

Darn. This is really hard. That was the only one I had any idea about whatsoever. Where'd you get this music??

I do tend to like rather obscure artists. There are several songs that I don't expect anyone to get (8, 11, 14, 23, 28) (I'll give you a hint, though: 28 is a really funny music video made by three guys. You've seen it.)

22 is a theme song from an anime movie.

14 is a song from an old horror/puzzle PC game that came out in the '90s.

4 and 38 are disco.

3, 5, 6, 16, 20, and 27 are songs from movies.

Well, I did recognize #28, and I do remember the video, but that doesn't mean I know what the name of the group or the song is. Ah well.
