Answers to my iPod lyric meme, with yay!songfiles!

I think I have everyone. If you guessed right and I left you out, tell me and I'll fix it. I have trouble with lists, so it could happen.

If you guessed right (even if you didn't guess first) I'll write something drabble-ish for you if it's a fandom/book/film/yaddayadda that I actually know.

My usuals are Harry Potter, due South and its various giant pseudopods offshoots (yes, even that one. Um.), Slings & Arrows (which I insist has to be mentioned all by itself *g*), Dark Tower, etc. I can probably do others, within reason. If it's a drabble, I'll do crossovers, any pairings, gen, whatever.

Or, if you're not into such things, I'll send you a songfile I think you'd like. Or both, because I'm a fileshare slut.

1. How come I gotta die to get a chance to talk to you face to face?
