Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

It's the wood man and his splintering self.
It's the wooden woman and her hollowing out.

Girl I close my eyes
and then I start to cry for you
You´re the reason why
I have to say goodbye to you

Hey ho, away we go, we're on the road to never
Where life's a joy for girls and boys and only will get better

Neil Young w/ Pearl Jam, "Song X"

Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise
The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m.
This letter

"E-Bow the Letter by REM

You showed me how to do
Exactly what you do
How I fell in love with you

If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck
I'd dive to the bottom and never come up
But the ocean's not whiskey and I'm not a duck
I'll just keep on drinkin' and (??) to my luck

I've waited here for you
I throw myself into
And out of the red, out of her head she sang

"Everlong" by Foo Fighters

All I know is the way that I feel
Whenever you're around
You've got a way of lifting me up
Instead of bringing me down

Call me up when you thought of somethin' new for me to do girl
Call me up when you thought of somethin' new for me to do girl
How could your nothings be so sweet?
You left your love letters incomplete

I am a child
I last awhile
You can't conceive of the pleasure in my smile

"I Am a Child" by Neil Young

In my dreams I'm dying all the time
As I wake its kaleidoscopic mind
I never meant to hurt you I never meant to lie
So this is goodbye

"Porcelain" by Moby

Oh, we're sinking like stones,
All that we fought for,
All those places we've gone,
All of us are done for.
We live in a beautiful world.

"Don't Panic" by Coldplay

Falling falling
Gonna drop like a stone
I'm falling through the atmosphere
On a warm afternoon
If lovers discover
That ev'ryone dies
So don't tell me, please hold me
It's a dangerous life

You know that you're a woman,
You gotta be a woman,
I got the feeling of love,
When you're talkin' to me, see right through me,
I've got the feelin' of love

"Woman" by Wolfmother

Every night my dream’s the same.
Same old city with a different name.
Men are coming to take me away.
I don’t know why but I know I can’t stay.

"Keep the Car Running" by Arcade Fire

I don't like you, but I love you
Seems that I'm always thinking of you
Though you treat badly
I love you madly

"You've Really Got a Hold on Me" by Smokey Robinson among others. Does anyone remember the Sesame Street skit where Smokey was singing this to a giant U with big lips who kept grabbing him and his shirt kept coming up??? Oh my God, I found it!

The man in me will do nearly any task,
And as for compensation, there's little he would ask.
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Words like violence
Break the silence
They come crashing in, into my little world
Painful to me, pierce right through me
Don't you understand, oh my little girl

"Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode

I fell through the ice
She won't be coming back again
It never wins to lie
She said you'll never have no rights

I'll be your chauffeur on a midnight drive
It takes a miracle just to survive
Buried animals call your name
You keep on sleeping through the poignant rain

Darlin' don't you go and cut your hair,
Do you think it's gonna make him change?
I'm just a boy with a new haircut
And that's a pretty nice haircut!

"Cut Your Hair" by Pavement

Soothe me baby, soothe me
Soothe me with your kindness
For you know your powerful loving is
Soothing to me

There are kids, lots of kids, who put the law inside a circle
As they jump, I hope that you will up and down, up and down
When did you cave into this role that you were cast in
When did dress-up turn to fashion, throw your gown up and down

You remind me of the babe (what babe?)
The babe with the power! (what power?)
Power of voodoo! (who do?)
You do! (do what?)
Remind me of the babe!!

"Magic Dance" by David Bowie

In the distance
She saw me comin' 'round
I was calling out
I was calling out
Still shakin'
Still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me honey
I was down and you lifted me honey
