Musical Meme

Got this one from literary_equine.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first lines from the first 15 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING

added note - I skipped everything that was music only, or that I couldn't transcribe (mostly because of their being in Japanese). Some of these are going to be pretty easy, but I left 'em in anyway.

1. Mandatum novum do vobis
2. Yes. Here I wait. Come approach me, why do you hesitate? Do you sense the strength beneath my armor plate, or can you feel my deathless hate and the hunger that no mortal thing can sate, nor abate."
3. Do you beleve in the Signs of the Zodiac? Haven't you found that the systems for Planning always fail?
4. I thank you good sir for the safe return of my daughter, princess Halishaia.
5. Young ones dreamed in their cosmic scheme, Challenger would help the race From its berth on the edge of earth Into space.
6. What do you do with a Drunken Alien?
7. If you mourn for Dickie I tell you right now there was an old man and he had an old cow.
8. In the time of the rising mountains, in the age when life was new, the trees were rulers of life on earth and the world as a forest grew.
9. Merovinge is small and so far away. Easier to run than to fight.
10. Kyrie fons bonitatis
11. Aye, aye yi yi – do you think that Conan is silly? Yes!
12. Everything I ever wanted waited far cross time and space, I'm a hero, I'm a champion of a wild and noble race.
13. Over hill, over dale past the bubbling stream. I run run run till the day is done, run to catch my dream.
14. This emergency assembly of Mad Scientists United is hereby called to order or as near as we can get.
15. Now some folks like the tweety birds, and others like their dogs. Some folks keep a parakeet, and others just keep hogs.

Well, I don't know any of 'em (all though I know a few to the tune of Cielito Lindo...) maybe I should...

You might be able to spot which three have the first line as title, even though it's a fair bet you aren't familiar with them. Most of the rest are filk (heck, one of the first-line title songs is filk) which is most of what I have on this computer other than instrumentals (Yolanda Kondonassis's harp album, Scintillation is a wonderful thing and well worth the aquisition if you can find it - I bought my copy via the site of a local music radio station after I'd heard some cuts played thereon.) And some Rasputina, which group rather counts as a genre all their own. :)

Someday, I am going to write a music meme predicated on the daring revelation that there are, in fact, musical works which don't happen to be "songs." If I were to do so, would you consider participating to see if it can be propagated some?

Sure. The only problem with doing it with this one was that I couldn't figure out what to substitute in print for lyrics.

I'll think of something. Honor is at stake! (Not a reference to Harrington, in this instance.)
