You couldn't call it unexpected - Here is the second great lyric challenge. Please be patient! I will add more as I get the chance.
Again, most (not all) of these are from famous artists, but not all are from singles. I've limited the list to pop / rock / soul / rap lyrics, but I think you'll find quite a variety. I'll add more soon.
Note: Only one quote will be used per artist.
I'm thrilled to take suggestions; just be careful and try to follow my 'one quote per artist' rule, and try to submit quotes by either famous or critically respected artists. A quote from an Ace of Base B-side or an As Divine Grace bootleg will probably remained unguessed forever (heck, I have Jimi Hendrix and Prince quotes still unguessed on my other list!). If you have any doubts, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to clear it. If you clear a lyric through me, I promise not to guess at it. ;) Also, please note the length of the average quote; half a verse is not appropriate!
One last note: I have very limited internet access on the weekend, so please don't give up hope if you post a guess on Saturday. I'll answer by early Monday at the latest.
