The twist this time is that all of these are on my Kieran playlist. (Poor Kieran. I did get to write today, and it was his scene, but he didn't even get the best lines; those went to Ryan and Donna.)

In case you are new to the internet: I put iTunes (within this playlist) on random, I quote a line or two from the first 20 songs that come up, you guess 'em. Except I'm only doing ten because I'm tired.

1. "We each retreat to the corner that's defined by you" - "The Boxer" by Carbon Leaf, blergeatkitty

2. "Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need" - "Holding out for a Hero", jenk

3. "Hey, my love, you came to me like wine comes to this mouth, grown tired of water all the time" "Two-Step" by Dave Matthews Band, idonotlikepeas

4. "I give in to sin because you have to make this life livable" - "Strangelove" by Depeche Mode, bikergeek

5. "The moon's too bright, the chain's too tight, the beast won't go to sleep" - "I'm Your Man" by Leonard Cohen, thesilentpoet

6. "The angels leave on horseback but the devils are all mine" - "This Town" by Oysterband, siliconshaman

7. "For every reason not to be here I can think of two" - "Only When I Lose Myself" by Depeche Mode, idonotlikepeas

8. "Please don't ask me why I'm here; something deeper brought me than a need to remember" - "Beloved" by VNV Nation, enderfem

9. "Love, you mustn't tire at the dying of the day" - "We Shall Come Home" by Oysterband, kuangning

10. "I just want to see you when you're all alone/I just want to catch you if I can/I just want to be there when the morning light explodes" - "Love You Til the End" by the Pogues, rivertumbled


Some of these are dead easy y'all. I'll be disappointed if you don't get #4 right off. ;)

EDIT: Bonus song that I'll be shocked if you get:

11. "I will be the song for you; I will be your servant child." - "The Meeting" by Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, approximated by mer_moon and guessed first in its entirety by sweetmmeblue

ALSO EDIT: I'll keep adding lines to #10 until someone gets it.

Yep! The version that popped up was by Frou Frou, but I have Tyler's and Jennifer Saunders' versions on there too.

I don't know #4, but 5's "I'm Your Man", originally by Leonard Cohen. Love that song.

Me too. :)

#1 is "The Boxer" by Carbon Leaf. (And I'm appropriately using my default icon for that.)

#9 is We Shall Come Home, by Oysterband -- and you introduced me to it, yea so long ago. ;)
26th-Feb-2011 01:16 am (UTC)
Yay!
26th-Feb-2011 01:23 am (UTC)
#8 "Beloved" VNV
26th-Feb-2011 01:30 am (UTC)
Yep!
26th-Feb-2011 01:24 am (UTC)
4. "Strangelove" by Depeche Mode.
26th-Feb-2011 01:30 am (UTC)
Yep!
26th-Feb-2011 01:50 am (UTC) - 11! Ooo! I know! I think!!!
The Meeting! By. Amanda something? Anderson something? Anderson Howe? Someone was talking this song up as a wedding song the other day ... if it is the right one.
26th-Feb-2011 01:03 pm (UTC) - Re: 11! Ooo! I know! I think!!!
Yep!
26th-Feb-2011 02:08 am (UTC) - 11
Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe - The Meeting. We have that album.
26th-Feb-2011 01:03 pm (UTC) - Re: 11
And you're the first to get it in its entirety!
26th-Feb-2011 02:16 am (UTC) - I know song #11!
The Meeting, by Anderson Wakeman Bruford Howe! I love that album and I love that song. (no, I didn't look at other comments first.)
26th-Feb-2011 01:03 pm (UTC) - Re: I know song #11!
Yep! But as you've seen, not first, alas...
26th-Feb-2011 02:40 am (UTC)
I cheated, because it interests me. #6 seems to be This Town by Oysterband, I like the lyrics, finding the audio is more difficult.

And the bonus one I'd heard, but still had to cheat on because I couldn't remember where. That seems to be The meeting by yes.

Of course, I could be totally wrong on those.
26th-Feb-2011 01:04 pm (UTC)
Those are the songs (partially; the latter's not Yes), but credit is offered only when Google is not used!

Based on the songs here that I know and like, now I want to find the others and listen to them!
26th-Feb-2011 01:04 pm (UTC)
I still have to find a way to make and post soundtracks.

Ooh! Oooooh! [WAVES A HAND FRANTICALLY]

No. 11: John Anderson/ABWH: Ummm... Something near the start of side two> Dammit, can I remember the track names? Um... [CHEATS AND CHECKS THE CD] "The Meeting"! (track length: 4:21). OK, so it's side 1, track 5. But I was near enough, right? Right? [HOPEFUL LOOK]   ={:o}

"As I will be The One for you, in the meeting of your love..."

...With Rick Wakeman doing the actual musical bit, as only Gentle Giant Rick can. =:o}
26th-Feb-2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
#6 is This Town by the Oysterband. I think...
26th-Feb-2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
Yep!
