First, there's still two puzzles left to enter on my journal: there's the code to crack (which so far no-one's replied to!), and the Guess The Movie Meme which will remain open until the weekend.

And now, it is time... for the answers to Name That Song, round 5!

#1: Gollum's Song ~ Howard Shore/Lord of the Rings (guessed by ladyofastolat and elemnar)
Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more

#2: Another Suitcase in Another Hall ~ Andrew Lloyd Webber (guessed by talismancer)
I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble, I anticipate it
But all the same, I hate it - wouldn't you?

#3: Tears in Rain ~ Vangelis/Blade Runner
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion

#4: How to be Dead ~ Snow Patrol/Final Straw
Please don't go crazy, if I tell you the truth
No you don't know what happened
And you never will if
You don't listen to me while I talk to the wall

#5: Heartbeats ~ José González
One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise made
Four hands and then away

#6: Lanercost ~ Steeleye Span
The priests go down to the river to fish for Friday's meal
The King is brooding day and night
Black with hate, cursing fate
To be ill when the foe is in sight

#7: Dhéanainn Súgradh ~ Clannad/An Díolaim
Dheanainn súgradh ris an nigh'n dubh
'N deidh dhomb éirigh as a 'mhadainn
Dheanainn súgradh ris an nigh'n dubh

#8: Almost Every Circumstance (folk, my recording by Maddy Prior & June Tabor) (guessed by ladyofastolat and elemnar)
Seven days are in the week in almost every circumstance
And there's four seasons in the year or so we learned at school

#9: Buachaill ón Éirne ~ Clannad/In a Lifetime
Buachaill ón Éirne mé 's bhréagfainn féin cailín deas óg
Ní iarrfainn bó spré léithe tá mé féin saibhir go leor

#10: Soave sia il vento ~ Mozart
Soave sia il vento
Tranquilla sia l'onda

#11: Got to have your love ~ Liberty X
Every time I close my eyes I can clearly see
The image of your smile shine through my darkest dreams
I never thought that I'd find myself this close, this close
To you my dear, tell me what it means

#12: Just Six Numbers ~ Dead Stuck/Songs for Phillip
Can you stand alone
Be still and listen
Comtemplate your inner

#13: Gloria (my recording by New World Orchestra/Christmas Chillout) (guessed by ladyofastolat)
Glória in excélsis Deo

#14: Still Alive ~ Lisa Miskovsky/Mirror's Edge (not to be confused with Portal)
I have changed
Just like you
Just like you

#15: Miss U Less, See U More ~ Faithless/Forever Faithless (guessed by pewterfish and elemnar)
I love the way you're so deliberate,
How you light your cigarette
Head on one side as you pull, you look almost regal

#16: I Don't Know how to Love Him ~ Andrew Lloyd Webber/Jesus Christ Superstar (guessed by ariskari and elemnar)
I don't know how to love him
What to do how to move him
I've been changed yes really changed

#17: Teeny Weeny Paganini ~ The Holy Trinity School/Playtime
I practise my scales, and I practise my bowing
My strings are all hot, ‘cause my fingers are glowing,
I fiddle all day, and I fiddle all night,
And my fiddlin’s really out of sight!

#18: If I Could Be Where You Are ~ Enya/Amarantine
Where are you this moment
Only in my dreams
You're missing, but you're always
A heartbeat from me

#19: Journey's End ~ Clannad/Macalla
Blue waves are rolling
Visions in my mind
Of a strange voice calling

#20: 4000 Rainy Nights ~ Stratovarius/Destiny
These empty days are filling me with pain
After I left it seems my life is only rain

#21: Can't Stop Now ~ Keane/Hopes and Fears
I noticed tonight that the world has been turning
While I've been stood here, dithering around
Though I know I said I'd wait around 'til u need me
I have to go, I hate to let you down

#22: Rex tremendae ~ Mozart/Requiem (guessed by ladyofastolat)
Rex tremendae majestatis

#23: Low ~ Coldplay/X&Y
You see the world in black and white
No color or light
You think you'll never get it right
But you're wrong, you might

#24: Virginia Moon ~ Foo Fighters/In Your Honor disc 2
Dearest constellation, heaven surrounding you
Stay there, soft and blue

#25: What I Go To School For ~ Busted (guessed by elemnar)
Her voice is echoed in my mind
I count the days 'til she is mine
Can't tell my friends cuz they will laugh;
I love a member of the staff

#26: Santiago ~ Show of Hands (guessed by elemnar)
From the ports of the west we sailed into the sun
South America bound a journey begun
Lights going out in the Barrios half a world away
Oceans to cross and a course to steer all the way

#27: Silent Warrior ~ Enigma/The Cross of Changes
Long ago, for many years
White men came in the name of God
They took their land, they took their lives
A new age has just begun

#28: Absurd ~ Fluke/Risotto
King Kong,
In Cannes, on a date with Spiderman,
Dan Dare's sitting there,
Scared by the killer teddy bears

#29: The Howling ~ Within Temptatin/The Heart of Everything
We've been seeing what you wanted, got us cornered right now
Fallen asleep from our vanity, might cost us our lives
I hear they're getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine

#30: Live and Let Die ~ James Bond Themes (guessed by link007, ariskari, ladyofastolat, talismancer and pewterfish)
When you were young, and your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live

And the scores:
link077 with 1 point,
ariskari with 2 points,
talismancer with 2 points,
pewterfish with 2.5 points (i'll give you half a point for your Blade Runner guess, though I think you typo'd the track number),
ladyofastolat with 5 points,
and elemnar with 7.5 points (half a point for getting the artist on track 18).

Now go and do elemnar's version of this!
