"Name that Tune" Contest (version 1.0) FINISHED

UPDATE - Congratulations to Becky and Welcome to Scoops first ever "Name that Tune" contest! I put my I-Tunes on shuffle and wrote the first line(s) of the next 25 songs that came up. Your challenge is to guess what song and artist it's from, but you CAN'T use google, yahoo, etc. Brain power only!

RULES:
In the comments section, write the question number you are answering, the song and the artist. Each correct song title and artist name are worth one point. Only the first person to correctly answer gets the point(s). The person with the most points by Friday, May 23rd at 6:00 p.m. (mst) gets an amazing cd of assorted music from me. (Thanks to Dennis for the idea)

I have a pretty obscure and diverse taste in music, so GOOD LUCK!

1.) The phone rings, it's early, it's 7:00, he says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk. - War at Home (BareNaked Ladies)
2.) Paint a moustache on the Mona Lisa, ride a Harley through the heart of danger. Pick up a pen and fight a war for the right to dream, I was seventeen - Sanctity of Dreams (Live)
3.) I’m sorry about your girl, little center of the universe. Axis turns the world, and you need a jet to get to her. - Ladylike (Storm Large)
4.) There is a tale that the island people tell, and I don't know if it's true, but I love it so well. -Jolly Mon (Jimmy Buffett)
5.) Something's got my fill and it won't get through my head, but there's something missing, there's something missing here. - Mama's Room (Under the Influence)
6.) I saw you standing hand in hand, but now you come to me a solitary man. - The Smile has Left Your Eyes (Asia)
7.) Clouds rumble, earth will shift, walls tumble and hearts will skip. Things changing, everywhere but here. - Released (Glen Phillips)
8.) There's too much sky, not enough blue. There’s too many questions to why I love you. - You are the Ocean (Teitur)
9.) It's a beautiful day, I heard everybody say, the sun shines down for all of us. - We are the Normal (Goo Goo Dolls)
10.) He's just the kind of man you hear about, who leaves his family for an easy out. - Hollow Years (Dream Theater)
11.) I feel it all around, I feel it in my bones. My life is on the line, when I'm away from home. - Just Another Day (Oingo Boingo)
12.) Somewhere else, it's still yesterday. In a little while, it will be right now. Continuum of both time and space, a disruption impossible. - 11:59 (DoubleDrive)
13.) I let the beast in too soon. I dont know how to live without my hand on his throat; I fight him always and still. - Fast as You Can (Fionna Apple)
14.) You and me, we used to be together everyday, together always. I really feel that I'm losing my best friend. I can't believe this could be the end. - Don't Speak (No Doubt)
15.) Would it take a bakers dozen to get my point to you? Would it take a half a pound to roll a joint for you? - No Stopping Us (Jason Mraz)
16.) Imagine if you will, what it means...this worthless life. Tried my best to the scratch the surface, got bloody, broken fingernails. - Signs Say Go (Queensryche)
17.) Laying flat on our backs, choosing our favorite stars. We try shining back from this roof of ours. But after a while you say “it seems pretty far” I think you forgot how bright you are. - Shine (Tracy Bonham)
18.) Seems like just yesterday, you were a part of me. I used to stand so tall, I used to be so strong. Your arms around me tight, Everything, it felt so right. - Behind those Hazel Eyes (Kelly Clarkson) Yes, I have one of her songs in my i-tunes.  :)
19.) Oh yes...I know this tension that you speak of. We're in the palm of a hand making a fist. It'd be best for one of us to speak up, but we prefer to pretend it does not exist. - Forgiven (Relient K)
20.) Well there ain't nothing to this but your daughter, and the life you would not give her break your plans, traipsed across the continent a squatter, for your lies at night to sleep between my hands - Born Losers (Matthew Good)
21.) I don't feel the way I've ever felt. I know. I'm gonna smile and not get worried. I try but it shows. Anyone can make what I have built, and better now. Anyone can find the same white pills. It takes my pain away. - Pain (Jimmy Eat World)
22.) Cinderella's on her bedroom floor. She's got a crush on the guy at the liquor store, cause Mr. Charming don't come home anymore, and she forgets why she came here. - Fairytale (Sara Bareilles)
23.) Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth. Only, I don't know how they got out, dear. Turn me back into the pet that I was when we met. I was happier then with no mind-set. - New Slang (The Shins)
24.) I was on the outside when you said, you said you needed me. I was looking at myself, I was blind, I could not see. - I Will Follow (U2)
25.) He's got a road map of Jupiter, a radar fix on the stars...all along the highway. She's got a liquid-crystal compass, A picture book of the rivers...under the Sahara. - Dreamline (Rush)

Becky pulls into the lead with six points. Very nice work there!

Jill Eubanks said...

Do I get points for something someone else has already guessed. Probably not. No Doubt was the only one I would've got. Although #1 sounds familiar.
