On a bandwagon

Been busy, too busy to blog, but here is a quiz for you. Name the songs from the first lines. No googling.

The original idea was to use I-tunes, put it on shuffle, and then take the first line of each of the first few songs (excluding those whose first line is the title) but I only realised that half way through. So, yes I cheated, but that doesn’t mean you can!

As featured on many good weblogs. Including Will‘s.
