Tuesday is the Day for Musical Guessing!

Okay, y'all -- Here's the deal: Last time I did this was a lot of fun,so I decided that this is going to be a weekly thing. Every Tuesday. Maybe after a certain period of time, someone will be declared winner and there will be mondo-fabulous prizes. Maybe it will just be that you'll be king of the hill in this small little corner of the world -- maybe it will be something else. I don't know yet. What I do know is that here are ten random songs (in the order they played) from my playlist, so guess away. If you know it, leave a comment. If there are to theoretically be mondo-fabulous prizes, there should be written proof that you guessed it correctly (also, no google! That's cheating!):

1) Oh how you sparkle, and oh how you shine; That flush on your cheeks is much more than wine
2) Hello again, your words they make me smile as I drift away in my little room upstairs
3) Every time I look at you, I go blind
4) Through the clouds, a nice surprise, to see the twinkle returning to your eyes
5) This is the moment that you know that you told her that you loved her but you don't
6) You're dangerous 'cause you're honest; you're dangerous, you don't know what you want
7) Wonderful you, the dope you are
8) What you gon' do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?
9) Go on and close the curtains, all we need is candlelight, you and me and a bottle of wine -- gonna hold you tonight
10) I have called you children, I have called you son, what is there to answer if I'm the only one?
----------
2) Only Lonely by Hootie & The Blowfish (Laura)
3) I Go Blind by Hootie & The Blowfish (Laura)
4) Sparkle by Rubyhorse (Jeff, you big freak)
5) Tiny Vessels by Death Cab For Cutie (Jenna)
6) Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses by U2 (Stevie)
7) Wonderful You by The Dandy Warhols (Ben)
8) My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas (Stevie)
9) Save Tonight by Eagle Eye Cherry (Jenna)
10) For the Widows in Paradise, blah, blah, longest song title ever (lol) by Sufjan Stevens (Ashley)

the only ones i can get off the top of my head are 6: u2: who's going to ride your wild horses, and, though I'm considering not answering only because the song is so gawd-awful, 8: black eyed peas: my humps

2 and 3 are by hootie and the blowfish yay! only lonely and go blind respectively. i totally had 8 and 9, but apparently i slept too late to get in the game this morning. :) i always felt bad for "the blowfish" because clearly the lead singer is hootie right? but now for the rest of his life people will say "hey it's hootie!" and he'll say "my name is darian. *deadpan with grumpy face*" these are the things you need to think about before naming your band...just keep it in mind.

Just wanted to say that I know number 10! It's Sufjan Stevens, For the Widows in Paradise, blah, blah, longest song title ever.
Also, this is my way of letting you know that I found your blog through the comment you left on mine and I'm reading, although if you don't want me to just let me know and I'll stop. We really do need to catch up, I haven't actually talked to you in YEARS.
