Name those tunes

I haven't done one of these in a while, so what the heck. These are lyrics from twenty of the last 23 songs I listened to:

  1. A strawberry-flavored composition is all that it takes
  2. Mother, I'm begging you please, to rid me of madness and cure this disease
  3. Loving spirits will live forever
  4. You'll soon forget that there's any other place
  5. Feels like I'm losing time at a breakneck pace
  6. What's so wrong thinking life is a song and reaching for a star?
  7. A witness and a bible
  8. What you see you might not get
  9. Stop! Your daddy’s been reprieved!
  10. With a map of the end times, I can follow a straight line
  11. I was thinking of a padded cell
  12. I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore
  13. Things have been dark for too long
  14. Lift your other leg up, fall on your ass
  15. She’s seen all the classics
  16. If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made
  17. I'll have a burger and a root beer
  18. Crawl into the wave
  19. What about that brand new ring?
  20. Uru Achim B'lev Somayach

I eliminated two songs for being too obscure ("Heart of Caroline" by Country Current and "Wake Up" by Arcade Fire) and one for being (mostly) an instrumental ("Onda" by Los Lonely Boys). Extra points if you can correctly guess the performers of nos. 6 and 20, both of which have been recorded by dozens of artists. (As has no. 12, but it's the version you probably think it is.)
