Song Lyric Game!

If all has gone according to plan, today I am in Pennsylvania. So here is a scheduled blog for you guys!

Well, this seems like a good time to put together a song lyric game, though I did do that fairly recently, but they make for an easy scheduled blog. The best part is, since I'm on the road, I don't know how often I'll be checking email, so your comments may not get displayed right away. That way nobody can cheat by reading everyone else's answers. :-) Though I suppose you could all still Google the answers. But whatever. I don't think anyone's been cheating anyway.

Answers will be posted next Monday.

1. Ain't no way for me to love you if you won't let me.

2. I'm not surprised, not everything lasts, I've broken my heart so many times I stopped keeping track.
(Cover version)

Well, uh, good luck with these. A lot of them are... really weird and obscure. And not in a cool hipster way. In a "why do you even have this song?" way.
