Susan Enan - Bring on the wonder.
I adore that song!

You're right (on both counts). *g*

The Power of Love (which I guess is fairly self-explanatory...) :) Don't know which version you have though - Frankie Goes to Hollywood?

Ha ha Nope, child of the '80s here, so it's the Huey Lewis version. *g*

I just checked my iPod and I've got three different versions... The Pigeon Detectives did a recent cover which is great.

Love your icon, btw.

Ooh, I will have to find that cover. Thanks for the heads-up!

Love your icon, btw.

Thank you; I snagged it from pink_cosmos.

Robert Palmer - I Didn't Mean to Turn You On
(Can't believe I didn't get this first time round...)

*g* You got it, bertie.

48 may be 'Ain't no mountain high enough' by Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrel? Might be another version but still think it's that song.

Yes! You are right, my dear.

I even can't believe I guessed one right.

I just posted this meme in my journal. Couldn't resist it. ;)

Believe it: you did! *g*

I just posted this meme in my journal. Couldn't resist it. ;)

This may be my favorite meme. It's kind of addictive.

18. You Don't Know Me - Michael Buble

35. All I Want - Toad the Wet Sprocket

Love this idea!!

You got the song right for 18, and since it's been covered by many people, it doesn't matter that you picked Michael Buble. The specific version that popped up on my player is by Jann Arden.

Though I adore Toad, your guess for 35 is incorrect.

#32: Gin Blossoms - Hey Jealousy
#44: Alanis Morrissette - Ironic

More sound familiar, but I am the world's worst at lyrics... I sing them wrong all the time! I make up my own words that sound good and I don't bother to look them up and correct myself... pish posh.

You got 'em, Space. :)

I make up my own words that sound good and I don't bother to look them up and correct myself... pish posh.

My husband does this -- with comical results.

my hubby is a lyric freak... always reading liner notes and learning them straight off. He makes fun of me... the best one I can think of now is 'I'm your Venus, I'm your firetruck messiah'... yeah, it can be quite amusing!

*dies laughing* Bananarama!!! Oh, the songs we've listened to over the years. *g*

27: Don't panic - Coldplay (I love this song. It's my favourite Coldplay tune)
38: Man in the mirror - Michael Jackson
41: Walking on sunshine - Katrina and the wave

40. U2. One Love.

Yes, 40 does belong to U2's One. :)

No. 3 is Laugh, I Nearly Died by the Rolling Stones, from Tattoo You. 15 is Eleanor by Low Millions. This was fun, I think I might snag this meme. Great songs!

Ding ding! :D

This was fun, I think I might snag this meme.

Go for it; that's what memes are for.

42 Message in a Bottle - The Police

(I'm sure my brain will turn on and figure out more once I've had my third cup of coffee. lol)

*Claps* You are correct. ;)

(I'm sure my brain will turn on and figure out more once I've had my third cup of coffee. lol)

*hooks you up to a java drip*

Ooooh. Thanks. If only someone would seriously invent one of those. They could make millions. :D

25. "Walk On the Ocean," Toad the Wet Sprocket
40. "One," U2

And 32 is driving me nuts...it's on the tip of my brain...

Yup, you got them both right.

40. One - U2 or Johnny Cash (I adore the Johnny Cash version)
37. Happy Ending - Mika

Someone else fingered U2 - One for 40 first, but you're still right. And yes, 37 is Mika's Happy Ending. :)

What a great idea! I've got another one:

46. Drawn to the Rhythm - Sarah McLachlan

She writes and sings such beautiful, often haunted, stuff; her songs inspire me to more fic than I could ever finish writing, each and every one of them.

Good guess. And yes, Sarah is a marvel.


Black eyed peas - disco club :)

Alanis Morrisete- Ironic
T

Random stranger popping in, but Yay!

19. Guster - Either Way

Yup, you're right. And random strangers are welcome, though it looks like you're a friend of inanna-ishtar's, so there's a degree of connection (or separation, depending on how you look at it). ;)

Your Star by All American Rejects.

Awesome song!!

We have a winner. :)

Alanis Morrisette - Ironic.
I just re-read the list and 'duh'd at myself! I have that album haha.

spacekid77 guessed it first, but yes, 44 is Ironic. :)

Drawn to the Rhythm - Sarah McLachlan

shipperatheart guessed it first, but yes, 46 is Drawn to the Rhythm. :)

42- Sting and the Police, "Message in a Bottle"

:D

siapom guessed it first, but yes, 42 is Message in a Bottle . :D

Hey! I was just listening to the songs you posted as part of your letter 'A' that you got from anadxof, and I heard the beginning of one of the songs and immediately went-oooh! Haven't I heard that first line before? And sure enough, it was in your post here!

23. At The Stars by Better Than Ezra

Love this song! :)
