Playing along – UPDATED with answers

[update - So just two were guessed, by some guy I don"t think I know. So to close out this silly thing, you"ll find the answers below. And shame on you all for not getting The Clash stuff ...]

OK, so over at That Yellow Bastard, he”s pushing a new lyric game. Here”s the rules and my list (of 10, not 30. Sue me).

1) On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first thirty songs on the list.

2) Write down one line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line.

3) Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs. (NO CHEATING!)

4) When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it. (Title AND artist have to be correctly guessed.)

[editor"s note: I took three liberties with the random playlist rules. I skipped past any song that was a cover, I limited artists to no more than two appearances (there is a certain act that occupies about 40% of my playlist) and I had to skip past an instrumental or two].
