Oh noes! Music lyric meme redux

You know this meme! Guess the song from the lyric fragments. This is an exercise in cultural overlap more than anything else. This time I used my main iTunes library and got pickier about which songs from the Party Mix I used. Some of these should be easy for everybody.

1. Aw, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet

2. What is love made of?
Nobody knows.
What are you afraid of?
Everybody knows...
It's love. It's love.

3. It's fun to eulogize
The people you despise
As long as you don't let 'em in your school

4. Mon amour
What's a boy in love
Supposed to do

5. Heifer whines could be human cries
Closer comes the screaming knife
This beautiful creature must die
This beautiful creature must die

6. But when the phone inside her rib cage rings it's not for me

7. You're never alone,
You're never disconnected!
You're home with your own:
When company's expected,
You're well protected!

8. Now howard the duck and mr stress both stayed
Trapped in a world that they never made
But not me baby

9. Quando paramucho mi amore de felice carathon

10. Bow down before the one you serve.
Youre going to get what you deserve.

11. I can hear you. I can hear you. I can hear you.
Can you hear me?

12. Capital punishment, she's last year's model
They call her natasha when she looks like elsie

13. Now is not this ridiculous, and is not this preposterous?
A thorough-paced absurdity - explain it if you can.

14. Orlando Cepeda is at bat with the bases jammed
Orlando Cepeda with a Wham! Bam!
He hit a grand slam

15. Now, you see these girls with these fine diamonds, fine furs and fine clothes
Well, they're looking for a husband and you're listening to a man who knows
They ain't foolin', and if you fool around with them
You're gonna get yourself in a schoolin'

16. I had no reason to be over-optimistic,
But somehow when you smiled
I could brave bad weather

17. I'm not going to get too sentimental
Like those other sticky valentines

18. When the band began to play
The stars were shining bright.
Now the milkman's on his way.
It's too late to say good night.

19. In ancient rome there was a poem
About a dog who found two bones
He picked at one
He licked the other
He went in circles
He dropped dead

20. Should I tell him, gaunt and rusting, with the willow tree above,
This - abandoned on manoeuvres - is the object of your love?

The alternative is working on my outline for NaNoWriMo, and lord knows I couldn't do that. I have another week of quality procrastination to get in.
