Meme 3 - from my brother

Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 35 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Have people guess what songs they are.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is cheating!

1. Come dance with me/ I -I- I love it
2. Something in the way she moves
3. The Magic 8 says I’m losing/ but I’m trying even harder now to hold on
4. Lily is dancing on the table/ We’ve all been pushed too far
5. Ba ba ba ba Barbara Ann
6. It’s been 7 hours and 15 days/ Since you took your love away
7. Pick the girl up at the train stop where I live/ Take a drive along the beach by the ocean
8. Well I’d live to visit the moon/ On a rocket ship high in the air
9. Once was a magical place/ Over time it was lost/ Price increased the cost
10. In many ways / They’ll miss the good old days
11. Come on baby leave some change behind/ She was a bitch but I don’t care
12. I don’t mind it/ I don’t mind at all/ It’s like you’re the swingset and I’m the kid that falls
13. Boys and girls of every age/ Wouldn’t you like to see something strange
14. Teenage Mary said to Uncle Dave/ I sold my soul must be saved
15. All I can ever be to you/ Is a darkness that we knew/ And this regret I got accustomed to
16. Here we are we’ve come to call/ With pipes and flutes and fiddles and all
17. Heaven bent to take my hand/ And lead me through the fire
18. A man walks down the street he says/ Why am I soft in the middle now?
19. I would like to reach out my hand/ I may see you/ I may tell you to run
20. I got dosed by you/ And closer than most to you and/ What am I supposed to do/ Take it away I never had it anyway
21. Come on come on come on come on now touch me babe/ Can’t you see?
22. Ka-boom/ Get it right now/ Oh let’s burn the factory/ that makes all the wanna-bes
23. Perfect by nature/ Icons of self-indulgence
24. Knew you’d be here tonight/ So I put my best dress on/ Boy I was so right (God, I'm embarrassed)
25. He was a hard-headed man/ He was brutally handsome
26. Miami/South Beach bringing the heat (dear GOD.)
27. The minute you walked in the joint/ I could see you were a man of distinction
28. Walking from the past/ But I don’t think I’ve said my goodbyes
29. Baby can’t you see/ I’m calling (this is a COVER version)
30. Drugs/ They say/ To make us feel so hollow/ We love in vain/ Narcissistic and so shallow
31. And I feel that times a wasted go/ So where you going to tomorrow?
32. You took your coat off/ And stood in the rain/ You’re always crazy like that
33. Dusting off your savior/ Well you were always my favorite
34. Don’t waste your touch/ You won’t feel anything/ Or were you sent to save me?
35. You pretend you’re high/ You pretend you’re bored/ You pretend you’re anything/ Just to be adored
