random songs meme - name it and claim it @ 10:06 am

Tags: ,

Here's lines from ten songs spat up by my wee iPod shuffle; they turned out a bit less random than expected. Identify them for no prize.

1. You're coming to me with that soulful look on your face,
Coming looking like you've never ever done one wrong thing.

2. I wear Mata Hari's dress
the ring of Marie Antoinette
The fairest Helen wore this corset
to a gala Trojan fête

3. And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
ajax

4. Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
ajax

5. Wine and women is all I crave
A big legged woman is
gonna carry me to my grave

6. O vunque il guardo io giro,
Le tue vaghe sembianze
Amore in me dipinge:
Il mio pensier si finge
Le più liete speranze;
E nel desio che così
M'empie il petto
Cerco te, chiamo te, spero e sospiro.

7. Oh, he wears long hair and his feet are bare,
They say he's mad as a grizzly bear,
His cares are none and he fears no one,

8. When we are marching in the mud and cold
And when my pack seems more than I can hold
My love for you renews my might
I'm warm again, my pack is light
gotham_bound

9. Recollect me darling raise me to your lips
Two undernourished egos four rotating hips
Hold on to me tightly I'm a sliding scale
Can't endure then you can't inhale
postgoodism

10. He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise.
He had a pickup truck, and the devil's eyes.
postgoodism

Crap, wrong title for #1. Stupid supergroups with their weird song titles.

Agreed. Not a catchy title, that one.

Sadly, no. It is considerably older.

It's oddly familiar, and will probably come to me at 4 am!

#8 is "Lili Marlene" Unless Marlene Dietrich changed it for her own ends. Which she may have.

Really good guess, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were somehow related. Half a no-prize for you.
