07:22 am - Songs meme!
Song meme! Generic MP3 player on shuffle, instrumental stuff, things I don't know the words to and most of the more obscure early 80s electropop edited out (I did land on the Urdu version of Fun Boy Three's Our Lips Are Sealed and if I'd been able to spell it, I would have put it in).

1. And many have turned out their porch lights, just so I would think they are not home Yiskah got this one - Ani DiFranco, 32 Flavors.

2. When did you first realise, it's time you took an older lover baby?

3. I tell you somebody's fooling around with my chances on the danger line.

4. I'd like to drop my trousers to the world, I am a man of means
And Leedy got The Smiths - Nowhere Fast

5. I'm taking a ride with my best friend
Silence got this one... Depeche Mode - Never Let Me Down Again

6. it's buzzing like a detuned radio
It's not, not exactly, but alltheleaves got it anyway - Radiohead Karma Police

7. in this matrix it's plain to see, it's either you or me

8. Whenever I'm alone with you, you make me feel like I am home again
Pescana got this one - The Cure - Lovesong. They're really so much better than Friday I'm in Love.

9. I'm not looking for absolution, peace of mind after what I've been through
And Silence spotted the other DM one - Walking In My Shoes.

10. in the schoolyard, in the scrapyard, in the chip shop, in the phonebox

I'm with you - I finally get one that somebody hasn't already gotten! Although I didn't know the one you got.

#8 is The Cure. Um, Love Songs?

#5 sounds familiar but I need to think.

Yeah, I'm the same with #5 - I think I need to google it for the sake of my own curiosity!

8 - Spot on.

5 - I guess this is not quite as obvious to everyone else as it is to me.

Is 6 Karma Police by Radiohead? I think the lyric is "he buzzes like a fridge, he's like a detuned radio" though. Not to be anal about these things or anything. Unless I completely have the wrong song in which case it's not.

No that's right. I was doing the lyrics from memory as I was running late... I like that lyric but not as much as I thought!

Right, 30 minutes later and it's still doing my head in, am going to have to google and immediately kick myself.

Same here. I'm fairly sure it's the Stereophonics, but I cannot remember the song title at all. I'll be kicking myself in a minute.

Warm...
This used to be on Phil's CD alarm clock thingy. The whole time I was writing up my PhD, this is what woke me up.

I don't know what it is but I'm now singing it to the tune of "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

4 is The Smiths - "Nowhere Fast" (I had to sing nearly the entire thing to myself before I remembered what it was actually called)

Yes! I know that's what I have to do. It's also why I left out all the New Order because they never have song titles that are part of the lyrics. Annoying.
