Ten Lyrics

So, I haven't done this in a while. Here's the opening lyric from ten songs chosen at random from what my somewhat-random playlist chose for me today:

  1. You tell me that you've never been this way before/You tell me things I know that I've heard somewhere
  2. I saw you coming/I called your name/You couldn't hear me/You walked on by
  3. You ain't been blue; no, no, no./You ain't been blue, till you've had that [title of song]
  4. [title of song] and let's get together tonight/I got some money in my jeans and I'm really gonna spend it right
  5. I'm the one/The one with the coded knock/The phone rings twice so you call back
  6. Outnumbered a million to one/All of the dicks in this dick town/[title of song]
  7. The sun just slipped its note below my door/And I can't hide beneath my sheets/I've read the words before so now I know/The time has come again for me
  8. Workin' up a fever in a one horse town/Was a jockey by the name of Joe/He didn't have a lot of what you might call luck/But he had a lot of [title of song]
  9. I didn't want to know you/I didn't mean to be your friend/But now it seems/I'd run through burnin' fire/Just to see your face again
  10. [title of song], guests were parking/And my wedding was about to start/[title of song], monkeys clapping/Then I got up on table and I said

I took out the instrumentals, of course. Who wants to play? Looks like a tough one to me.

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,


Snagging the easy one: #3 is Mood Indigo

#8 is Get Up and Go by the Rutles (and now it is stuck in my head)

Oddly enough, this one was the easiest title to guess and the most obscure performing group. This was the RevRay trio, who we saw in that B&B in Driffield.

Welp, #2 was not what I thought it might have been, so I'm out.

OK, time for hints: Here are the performers of the remaining songs: Eddie Cochran, Devo, Eddie From Ohio, Norah Jones, Annie Lennox, The Monkees and They Might Be Giants. Ring any bells?
