This is a question Mix Tapes

Everyone's made a mix tape (or CD, USB stick, or whatever kids do these days). Mostly to get in someone else's pants, but we're sure there are other, lesser, reasons too.

So, who did you make it for and why?
And... what was on it?

Mix Tape
Ok, to make this question slightly more interesting, and because I'm amazingly bored, I'm setting a game of First Lines.

Here are some first lines to songs that were definately on a mix tape that I didn't just make up. Guess them. Don't use the internet or you're gay. First person to get each one right wins the prize of being The Best.

1). Out of bed at 8am, out my head by half past ten...
2). In this dirty old part of the city, where the sun refused to shine...
3). All you trekkies and tv addicts, don't mean to dis don't mean to break static...
4). You spurn my natural emotions, you make me feel like dirt...
5). My friend and me, looking through her red box of memories...
6). I'm just mad about saffron, saffron's mad about me...
7). Under blue moon i saw you, so soon you'll take me...
8). We've come a long, long way together...
9). I had visions I was in them I was looking into the mirror...
10). I'm not content to be with you in the day time...
11). Oh we were born within an hour of each other...
12). I can feel the earth begin to move, I hear my needle hit the groove...
13). Look who's crawling up my wall, black and hairy very small...
14). Rising up, back on the street, did my time took my chances...
15). Teenage dreams so hard to beat...
16). Some might say that sunshine follows thunder...
17). Libraries gave us power, then work came and made us free...
18). It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up....
19). He's a 20th century boy, with his hands on the rails...
20). Billy Ray was a preacher's son, and when his daddy would visit he'd come along....

WARNING: taste in music may go down as well as up, past songs are not an indication of future enjoyability.

Now I'll check the rest.

also @ irv, yeah it's one of mine as well, it describes so well bad drunken nights out and I always find myself singing it on the way home. It does make me feel slightly guilty about being an occasional drunken fool though...

"I'll eat it in the taxi queue,
Stand in someone elses spew,
Wish I had lipstick on my shirt,
Instead of piss-stains on my shoe.."

Yup, that about sums up a Friday night in the UK. Quality organ solo in the middle too.

2) Animals- We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

.I'm not saying you're a bit late
but to compare this to a RL situation... this is like you shutting some kind of hinged wooden swinging object that blocks the way into a kind of rural warehouse after the object being stored in said warehouse which happens to be a large beast of burden has already fucked off.

Listened to the Morning Glory album a million times as a teenager knew it would come in handy one day!
