Friday Quiz

I've had bit of fun with quizzes in the past few weeks and I spotted this one on Facebook and couldn't resist.

It's a music quiz based on 25 randomly-shuffled tracks in my iTunes library. I'll give you the first line of the song, you guess the artist and title. Don't use Google (or any other search engine of your choice) as it takes away from the fun of it a bit. Obviously, if you actually know me then you might have a slightly better chance of knowing some of the music that I listen to, but it is a pretty eclectic mix so you should be able to get some of them.

I'll put the answers up as folks guess them.
