If It Were A Quiz, It Would Have Bit You

Ya know what I think we all need to celebrate an extra hour of life today?

A lyrics quiz.

You folks remember these? :)

If not, or if you are a new reader (doubtful, but, hey, I can hope, right?), I'll give you a lyric, and you supply the song title and the artist who sang it. If there are multiple versions of the song, I highly encourage petty fighting and arguments about which is the superior one.

These are mostly pretty easy, I think, but might be fun.

Tonight's the night well make history, honey, you and I
And I'll take any risk to tie back the hands of time
And stay with you here tonight
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up and let us in
Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
I've asked myself
How much do you
commit yourself?
All alone I have cried
silent tears full of pride
in a world made of steel,
made of stone.
She said I'm sorry baby
I'm leaving you tonight
I found someone new
he's waiting in the car outside
Stop playing with my heart
Finish what you start
When you make my love come down
I still recall
A sad cafe
How it hurt so bad to see her cry
I didn't want to say good-bye
we were both too tired to sleep.
So we took turns a staring out the window at the darkness
'til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.
At school they taught me how to be
So pure in thought and word and deed
They didn't quite succeed

I had forgotten how much fun these were to create :)
