Guess the songs.

A bit of amusement for a friday afternoon. Guess the songs and the respective artists.

  1. Who knew that mrfnord was as enchanted with a waste allocation bot as I was? A point to him for getting Peter Gabriel's "Down to Earth" from this summer's best movie, Wall-E
    Did you think you'd escaped from routine
    By changing the script and the scene
    Despite all you made of it
    You're always afraid of a change

  2. Take me down alleys where the murders are done
    In a vast high-powered rocket to the core of the sun
    Want to read books and the studies of men
    Born on the breeze and die on the wind

  3. datagoddess scores the first point by identifying "Downeaster Alexa" by Billy Joel
    And I go where the ocean is deep
    There are giants out there in the canyons
    And a good captain can't fall asleep

  4. katsie gets a point for identifying "Helicopters" by BNL
    Everybody's laughing while at me they point a finger
    A world that loves its irony must hate the protest singer

  5. zibblsnrt scores the first of his two points by identifying this as Great Big Sea's "England"
    Should we find fortune's favor and be spared from the gale
    We will live off honest labor with hearts as big as sails
    If I should die, don't bury me or leave me to the sea
    Send my bones back to my home where my spirit can be free

  6. Tell me stories, tell me more
    Make me feel guilty for being bored
    Tell me how to pick up things I've dropped
    Please keep talking, never stop

  7. People can change, people can change
    They can turn their back and run
    People can change, people can change
    I'm sorry for all the things I've done

  8. And this is zibblsnrt's second point, identifying "What is Eternal" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
    And I think what I've done or have yet to begin
    The man I've become and the man that I've been
    Now caught in a waltz with the eternal dancer
    I'm courted by death but death isn't the answer... I say

  9. And a point for eiviiaru for identifying "No Rain" by Blind Melon
    All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
    I like watching the puddles gathering
    And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
    And speak my point of view but it's not sane

  10. A point to gridlore, who knew this was Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" and a bonus point for providing the wonderful video. (See the comments.)
    In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
    At the mongrel dogs who teach
    Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
    In the instant that I preach
    My existence led by confusion boats
    Mutiny from stern to bow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I'm younger than that now.

Because you cannot walk with the holy
if you're just a halfway decent man
I don't pretend that I'm a mastermind
with a genius marketing plan
I'm trying to tap into some wisdom
Even a little drop will do
I want to rid my heart of envy
And cleanse my soul of rage
Before I'm through
