I have spent many an hour wasting company time guessing other people's lyrics quizzes... now it's time to give back to the community. Enjoy..

#7 "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls
#14 "Baby Can I Hold You" by Tracy Chapman
#17 "Frank Sinatra" by Cake
#21 something involving food items, by Sarah MacLachlan

Outstanding selections, man. Kudos. *Finally* someone rocks Cake.

Right, right, right, and... sort of right! And yes, Cake rocks. Thanks!

The actual title of the Sarah McLachlan track is Ice Cream.

#27 is "Red House" by Jimi Hendrix.
#22 is "King of the Road" by Roger Miller.
#19 is "Kodachrome" by Paul Simon.

That's a nice old "all-over-the-place" spread.

Thanks..! Those are all right.

#8 - "Be My Yoko Ono" by Barenaked Ladies
#9 - "Kate" by Ben Folds Five
#12 - This sounds really familiar...
#15 - This also sounds familiar, but I have an odd feeling like I've actually seen this posted on a different lyric quiz...

Right about BNL and BFF... and as for #15, it's from a song I used to love in the early nineties (when I was like - 13!) and that was (for some reason) my favourite lyric.. I havent seen it on another quiz...

1. Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys
3. L.A. Woman - The Doors
4. Don't Ask Me Why - Billy Joel
16. I Call Your Name - The Beatles
23. Stone Cold Crazy - Queen
