The Song Meme-ory Game

I saw this over at KB's and I just had to play. Here's the rules:

Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from.
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly and give them credit.

As these songs get guessed, I'll put them up for download. Right click and save as on the song name. Don't cheat and use Google either!

1. Sitting in an armchair with my head between my hands. Wouldn't have to be like this if only you'd understand. The Cranberries - Wanted; guessed by Syd
2. Just try to see in the dark. Just try to make it work. To feel the fear before you're here. The Cure - Close To Me; guessed by Somewhat
3. Two dozen other stupid reasons why we should suffer for this.

12. It lit up the fish like rain and rained them down on me. The Cure - Hot! Hot! Hot!; guessed by KB
