A lyrics quiz!

It occurs to me that I've really been terribly whiney lately. Sorry 'bout that.

So, in the interests of perking up this journal a bit, a lyrics quiz!

Santa was very nice to me indeed, and brought me an mp3 player (in perfect honesty, I was expecting Santa to bring me a coupon for half the cost, so was both surprised and pleased by the gift) -- a Creative Zen Touch -- and it is now my constant companion. The sound quality is quite good indeed (although I need to get better headphones in order to appreciate it properly), and I am completely enamoured with the ability to carry all my music around with me, so that I can instantly satisfy a craving to hear -- well, any of the wacky eclectic stuff I have loaded on there.

I've got about 90% of my music collection on there now, which seems like a pretty reasonable sample for a quiz, so here goes. Ten random tracks*, instrumental and single-lyric electronica excluded, and no duplicate artists. I'll pick a line or two of lyrics for each of them (lyrics not to include the song title), and you guess the artist and song. I'm going to try screening comments so as to allow everyone a fair chance to guess, and I'll put the answers up in a few days.

*ETA: Due to the extreme difficulty (as in, I doubt I'd be able to identify them) of most of the first ten songs served up by the machine, I've decided to give you twenty songs to guess. 'Cause I'm nice like that. ;)
