Music to my ears

OK, I'm bored of this now. I told my husband that if no one guesses, that he'll have to swoop in and save my game, but I'm really impressed - he didn't need to, you've all done so well. Thanks to all of you who played, it was very fun - and if you're playing the game on your site sometime soon, please let me know! I've listed the unanswered songs/artists below. Hope no one is kicking themselves after seeing them :)

My foot is throbbing and again I can't think of something to write. After Keris and Kate did this ipod meme, I was going to do it as well, but never got around to posting it. Well here it is, in all its glory. I've given the first lines of the first 25 random songs on my MP3 player and you get to guess the title and artist of the song. Post your answers in the comments and I'll update them as I recieve them. The rules were these, no repeated artists, nothing obscure, foreign or with the title in the first line for me and for you no googling the lyrics. Have fun (and now I'm going to go away and cry because no one will be interested in guessing, even though I think they're all a little too obvious)

1) So I'm a little left of center You Get Me by Michelle Branch, got by A

2) Turn out the light, just say goodnight to yourself Save Yourself by Sensefield, got by A - one of my favourite songs! This one of the songs my husband and I sing to Boy to help him go to sleep

19) Everything is open, nothing is set in stone Driftwood by Travis, got by Polly
