Oh noes, lyrics meme!

You know how this one goes: Put iTunes on random, pick the first N songs that show up, paste in some lyrics, guess away! I'll strike 'em out when they've been guessed correctly.

Only I had to skip a lot, because about 80% of my Macbook music inventory is instrumental good-to-program-to music. And I avoided the first lines of lyrics if they gave the game away. Some of these are obscure; some are dead easy.

Still unguessed: a song by the most famousest band ever, one by their rough contemporaries, another 80s item, and two really obscure 70s prog items.
