Guess the songs!

I ran errands on foot today! And on the way home, I was reminded of an old LJ meme.

I will give you two (or more!) consecutive lines from each song I listened to, in order. You guess the songs in comments.

(There was one instrumental. Here it is, if you're curious. Warning: awesome bagpipes.)

These were all on random, no playlist. There are a few that I'll be very surprised if you know 'em. There are a few that are blindingly obvious. The only deliberate choice was the first song.

EDIT to put unguessed songs on top.


3. "On a psychedelic space machine, galactic sugar high/like a caffeinated satellite, gone way past 99"

6. "We're the patron saints of rented cars and last goodbyes in airport bars/and in the morning, like ghosts, we slip away"

7. "Pretty whitewashed lies/endless alibis/and reasons that need cleaning every night"

20. "And one of these dreams/you forgive me"

21. "Will you rescue me from my motor lodge room/open the curtains to let in the moon?"
