Lyrics-o-rama

Before I got drafted onto the virus remediation team this afternoon, I had a chance to put together one of those random song lyrics things. Unfortunately, I didn't think to remove the non-musical mp3s from my queue before I started, so there are some "lyrics" below that are not lyrics at all. But you should still try to identify them if you can.

  1. There's a name that plays in my head like a song all day long; she's with me every day - The Bens, "Just Pretend" (hcwoodward)
  2. And here is the man pushing paper past her, thinks up ways to make the day go faster - Fountains of Wayne, "Sick Day" (Greg S.)
  3. Money can be exchanged for goods and services - The Simpsons, "Boy Scouts 'N the Hood" (tomthedog)
  4. I'm here to say there's a rainbow just around every corner
  5. We wake each morning with the sun to live our dreams away - Mike Oldfield, "The Time Has Come" (pidgehuss)
  6. I want you go out and bring me Lazarus; bring him dead or alive
  7. When you walked out on me, in walked old misery - Brian Setzer Orchestra, "Since I Don't Have You" (Greg S.)
  8. We thank you, God, for wondrous light
  9. Something as hard as a prayer on your back can wait a long time for an answer - Patty Griffin, "Mother of God" (hcwoodward)
  10. But not a real green dress, that's cruel - Barenaked Ladies, "If I Had a Million Dollars" (queenofdenile)
  11. I used to be cruel to my woman - Gomez, "Getting Better" (nongenius)
  12. She saw the future, she heard voices from inside - Ben Folds, "Zak and Sara" (sodanyc)
  13. Every now and then I feel so insecure - The Beatles, "Help!" (jennlynnster)
  14. As far as I can see there's no reason for goodbye
  15. There's another season that crawls by like years - The New Pornographers, "From Blown Speakers" (pidgehuss)
  16. You don't think that mentioning these few superficial failings is going to do you any good, do you? - You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown soundtrack, "The Doctor Is In (demo version)" (pidgehuss)
  17. Why can't you let it go? - Marti Noxon, "The Parking Ticket" (jennlynnster)
  18. Some say I'm robbing the cradle, but I say she's robbing the grave!
  19. Don't ever, ever say or think that again!
  20. It's better, my sweet, that we hover like bees, 'cause there's no sure footing
