4 is Pink Floyd, 11 is Jewel, 15 Eagles, 16 Indigo Girls and 18 is NIN.
I believe #1
is A Little Fall of Rain from Les Miserables. At least, it's that theme. I also believe #18
is Closer by NIN. I also got #3
, which have already been identified above.
And I don't know what song #20
is, but when I see it, Take Me Home Tonight by Eddie Money pops into my head. I think it's just the rhyme scheme. Either way, it's damned annoying.
haha, you got that stuck in your head too?
well, let's see, most of them already got covered...
i knew 3, 4, 9 (cranberries, dreams), 11, 12 (pearl jam, jeremy, though tricky since it's hard to understand that part), 15, and 18.
And after reading taeli
's comment again, #11
is, I believe, You Were Meant For Me by Jewel. I should have gotten that song on the first time through, but I didn't. :P
is from the Les Miserables finale, as Valjean is dying (I love the Eponine/Fantine duet!).
I don't know any of the other still unknown songs.
According to my copy of Les Mis, you are correct, sir! The last song is called Finale. I didn't google for it, but I did rely on the lyrics sheet of my copy of the recording. Alternatively, I could have just listened to the mp3s. I just didn't think that was kosher, but I guess the rules only specifically prohibit online searches.
Are you insinuating that I used some technique other than pure memory to obtain the answer? Lies!
No, I'm insinuating that *I* used some technique other than pure memory to obtain the answer. I would never slander you, oh great slayer of the crystalline Jesus.
is from 2112 by Rush at the end of the dream movement
Just think of what my life I'd lead
In a world like I have seen.
I don't think I can carry on
Carry on this cold and empty life...
Or something like that, it has been many years since I have heard it.
Oh, and 4 is Hey You off of The Wall since the song hasn't yet been mentioned.
what, you're too good to give me credit for pearl jam? :-b
is Roxette, either "Dangerous" "A Little Bit Dangerous," don't remember for sure.
I played the Les Mis pit two years ago . . . dammit, is #1
either "Finale" or "Epilogue"? I'm leaning towards the latter, but it's just part of a long damn string of wrapping-up melodies that lead into "Do You Hear the People Sing," which I know everyone already knows anyway.
