25 Songs - Contest

It's time for a music meme and contest. I love all the music memes that go around the web. I think they are a fun peek at what people listen to, even the embarrassing or silly songs. I haven't had a contest around here for a while, so I will make this into a contest.

The first person to get all of these right will win a $10 gift certificate for iTunes. If nobody gets all of them, then I'll pick the first person to get the most correct.

This is truly random, I had the entirety of my music choices on shuffle. Some of these are gimmes, some are more obscure. I also skipped any instrumental pieces, you know, so I could avoid trying to spell out the rhythm of the notes.

I will leave the contest open until 12:01 PDT tomorrow night Sunday night April 24th (to give me a chance to get more entries and actually check the answers), so there won't be any crossing out of the lyrics until after that. To enter, leave your guesses in the comments with a way to contact you, e-mail or blog. Have fun!

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both the artist/movie/musical/whatever and song title correctly (there are a couple on here that I will be lenient about artist).
Step 4: No cheating. No google, yahoo, asking a friend, etc.
Step 5: If you like the game, post your own list!

1. Love makes me treat you the way that I do
2. She's leavin' and folks are feeling so low
3. Everybody needs a little time away
4. I guess I thought you'd be here forever
5. Know, don't you wanna know, don't you wanna know
6. Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
7. At last my love has come along
8. Well I was walking down a rutted road
9. Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you
10. I hear you say your heart is aching
11. Pack up all my cares and woes
12. When you feel the sunlight fade into the cold night
13. It's not the pale moon that excites me
14. You say you want a revolution
15. I know a girl who was schooled in Manhattan
16. Sometimes it's hard to be a woman
17. When the sun is high in the afternoon sky
18. Oh baby, do you know what that's worth
19. I know you don't love me no more
20. So many people gonna say that they want you
21. Sexy Sadie, what have you done?
22. I got chills, they're multiplying
23. Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging
24. He's a real nowhere man

I am not very good at these but here is the few I figured out.

14. Revolution- the Beatles
21. Sexy Sadie- the Beatles
22. Your the one that I want- John Travolta and Olivia Newton John
24. Nowhere Man- the Beatles
What the heck - I suspect I have some of the same albums on our iPods. As I'm sure you know many of these have multiple renditions, but I'm naming the versions I have

1. Gee baby ain't I good to you - Ella Fitzgerald and Louie Armstrong
3. Hold me now - Chigago?
6. Stormy Weather - Lena Horne
7. At Last - Beyonce
9. Mona Lisa - Nat King Cole
13. The nearness of you - Ella Fitzgerald and Louie Armstrong
14. Revolution #9 - Beatles
16. Stand by your Man - Tammy Wynette
18. Heaven on Earth - Belinda Carlisle
22. Better shape up - Grease Soundtrack
24. Nowhere man - Beatles

That's the best I got without googling. I'm sure there's a few I know but can't place
