Song meme, day 4

Song meme, day 4

Miss J is kicking ass here, folks.

Quick bit of detail; assuming that people keep guessing, I'm going to go to either 100 songs or someone scoring 50 points, whichever comes first. If interest drops off, I'll probably call it off half way.

Bjork, Army of Me, found by corwin77

3) "Flowers growing on a hill, dragonflies and daffodils, learn
from us, very much, look at us but do not touch, Phaedra is my name" 2pts

heh. those old standards fuck me up. it's like Cohen's Hallelujah. Everybody adds their own shit, then I forget who added what.

the correct rasputina title is "if your kisses can't hold the man you love".
the correct swans title is "celebrity lifestyle"
#22 is Apoptygma Berzerk, Love Never Dies.
