Music quiz thing

Old meme here, nabbed from nerdowl

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line or so from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. Caveat: I'm not going to include a.) spoken word, or b.) anything where the title is in the first line, as that would make it just a wee bit too easy c.) in at least one instance, I've omitted one where I just couldn't decipher the first line...
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

Apologies for those who don't share entirely my musical taste - rather unusually for these "set mp3 player on shuffle mode" things there are a rather high number of songs by my favourite group. *ahem*

Also, apologies for the "tribute to the IT Crowd" deliberate typo on question 50, but it was kind of irresistible!

Anyway - have fun guessing!
