Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Webcheating is frowned upon.

Language warning for number 11

1 - [Title Redacted], coming home in dribs and drabs
Life is numbers, with doggy tags
Filled with holes and coming back
So come on up the sky

2 - [Title Redacted], Winter trees
The beauty of, dead industry
The stuff we have saved, so fatally
Comes crashing down, around me

3 - Guess I'm stuck in a dream
Surrounded by coloured leaves on the ground
As I stare at the trees
I see one fall down on my hand

4 - Standing at the bus stop with my shopping
In my hands when I'm overhearing elder
Ladies as the rumors start to fly you can
Hear them in the school yard, in the scrap yard
In the chip shop, in the phone box, in the pool hall at
The shoe stall every corner turned around

Is A Thousand Trees by the Stereophonics, as guessed by [personal profile] lilacsigil.

5 - What's up with my heart when it skips a beat? (skips a beat)
Can't feel no pavement right under my feet (under my feet)

6 - Lady take a ride on a Zeke 64, Jerry wants to be a rockette
That's a popular misconception, says we haven't seen anything yet

7 - Drinking water to stay thin
Or is it to purify
I love you all the same
is You Stole The Sun From My Heart by the Manic Street Preachers, as guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale.

8 - Happiness
More or less
It's just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh, my, my
Coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just where I am

(I would like to apologise for this artist's typography)
I am apologising for Richard Ashcroft's typography because it is Lucky Man by the Verve. Guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale

9 - He's got a brand new car
Looks like a jaguar
It's got leather seats
It's got a CD player
is Buck Rogers by Feeder, as guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale

10 - I can feel the earth begin to move
I hear my needle hit the groove
And spiral through another day
I hear my song begin to say
is She Bangs The Drum by Stone Roses, guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale and [personal profile] lilacsigil.

11 - [Spoken]You can buy her, you can buy her
This one's here, this one's here, this one's here and this one's here
Ev'rything's for sale[/spoken]

For sale? dumb cunt's same dumb questions
Oh virgins? listen, all virgins are liars honey
And I don't know what I'm scared of or what I even enjoy
Dulling, get money, but nothing turns out like you want it to

12 - I've never been here before
Didn't know where to go
Never met you before

13 - I see double up ahead
Where the riverboat swayed beneath the sun
Is where the river runs red
Like a King who stalks the wings and shoots a dove
And frees an eagle instead
It's more or less the same as the things that you said

(Which could be tricky because this one that everyone knows by the guitar part.)

Which apparently wasn't that trick since [personal profile] pyroyale guessed it in one. It is The Riverboat Song by Ocean Colour Scene.

14 -

[Can You Hear Us [Title redacted] x 8]

Life is a cigarette, you smoke to the end,
But if you rocket the middle bit,
Then you burn all your friends,
The wider your eyes, the bigger the lies, yes it's true,

15 - The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
"So if I can shoot rabbits then I can shoot fascists."
Is If You Tolerate This (Then Your Children Will Be Next) by the Manic Street Preachers guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale and [personal profile] lilacsigil

16 - [Title redacted]
Sister and a brother
Changing the way that you feel
Pleased to meet you
Hope I never see you
I'll be at ease watchin' you sleep watchin' you smile

(This is another where the music is more memorable than the words.)

Is One To Another by the Charlatans, as guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale.

17 - Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
is, of course, Everything Must Go by Manic Street Preachers, guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale.

18 - [title redacted] her arms, waits there for the nails
I forgive you boy, I will prevail
Too much to take, some cross to bear
I'm hiding in the trees with a picnic, she's over there

19 - I never said never ever
You took the words right out of my mouth
Is the sea your sunshine have we been told?
The sea is you lifeline
You're [title redacted]

(Another where the music is more memorable than the words.)

20 - I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me
I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me

Is indeed Moving on Up by Primal Scream, which I always file under "Moving On Up Now". Guessed by [personal profile] pyroyale.

(Anyone who may have spotted that I was a 90s kid is right.)
