Yikes, either we listen to a ton of different music, or I just suck at recognizing lyrics. I know there has to be some Elton John in there somewhere... but I think you know his music better than I do. *g*

Anyway, here's my guesses...

17. Peron's Latest Flame from Evita
25. Space Dog by Tori Amos
55. Horses by Tori Amos
57. Greek Song by Rufus Wainwright
60. Bird on a Wire by Leonard Cohen (though I know it by Johnny Cash's cover)
66. Zombie by The Crannberries
99. Happy Phantom by Tori Amos

Y'know I tried not to duplicate the numbers.

Ah, well, it just makes things more challenging.

25. "Space Dog", Tori Amos (and I think it's "way to go", isn't it? ^^)

Nope. It's definitely "show us all what you don't know". At least that's the studio version.

Deportees, written by Woodie Guthrie. You got it.

87. John Barleycorn, Steeleye Span

I have the Traffic Version. I think the song's traditional.

90. Ragtime Cowboy Joe Chipmunks version!

48. I am wondering if this is from a really old Dolly Parton song I have that I can't remember the name of, where her father died in a car wreck with his secretary?

Carroll County Accident. I have the Porter Wagoner version, but it wouldn't surprise me if Dolly sang/wrote it.

The others are spot-on. Whee!

And we still do. I figure your holidays were the equal of mine, insanity wise.

Plus, I of course meant BURNED CDs. Was not trying to trick you into giving over actual elements of your collection. :)
