Name That Song, round 6 - the answers

Sigh. You post perfectly good snark-bait, and then talismancer goes and decides to take the day off.

Anyway, I did promise the answers to the quiz. Commenting has been disabled and existing comments revealed, so you can all see what everyone guessed. So, without further ado here's the song and artists!

#1 Virginia Moon ~ Foo Fighters/In Your Honor
This was in last year's name that song as well. No-one got it then either :)
Dearest constellation, heaven surrounding you
Stay there, soft and blue
Virginia moon, I'll wait for you tonight

#2 Count Me In ~ Ruby Turner/More Friends
When I'm waiting
Hey I'm waiting
When I'm waiting
Yes I'm waiting

#3 Lacrimosa ~ Mozart/Requiem
Guessed by ladyofastolat (½ point for source)
Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus

#4 Got To Have Your Love ~ Liberty X/Now 53
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.

#5 Can you Believe It ~ Graham KendrickRumours of Angels
Can you believe it?
Oooh - oooh
Can you believe it?

I knew my true love was true?
Oh I of course replied
Something here inside cannot be denied

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

#8 Ave Maria ~ King's College Choir
Guessed by ladyofastolat
Ave maria, gratia plena
Dominus tecum, virgo serena

#9 The First Man You Remember ~ Andrew Lloyd Webber
I want to be the first man you remember
I want to be the last man you forget
I want to be the one you'll always turn to
I want to be the one you won't regret

#10 Swallowed in the Sea ~ Coldplay/X & Y
You cut me down a tree and brought it back to me
And that's what made me see where I was going wrong
You put me on a shelf and kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself, you can only blame me

#11 Nickindia ~ Nerina Pallot/Fires
Here is my story
A little sad of soul, a little weary
Maybe I am that?

Voca me cum benedictis

#13 Long-a-Growing ~ Steeleye Span/Now We Are 6
Guessed by ladyofastolat
As I was walking by yonder church wall,
I saw four-and-twenty young men a-playing at the ball.
I asked for my own true love but they wouldn't let him come,
For they said the boy was young but a-growing.

#14 Any Dream will Do ~ Andrew Lloyd Webber/Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Guessed by ladyofastolat, ariskari, mirrordreams (½ point for album)
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain, what I thought I knew.
Far, far away, someone was weeping,
But the world was sleeping.

#15 Supermassive Black Hole ~ Muse/Black Holes and Revelations
Guessed by safrialailo
Ooh, baby, don't you know I suffer?
Ooh, baby, can you hear me mourn?
You caught me under false pretences
How long before you let me go?

#16 Miniature Disasters ~ KT Tunstall/Eye To The Telescope
Don't wanna be second best,
Don't wanna stand in line,
Don't wanna fall behind.
Don't wanna get caught out,
Don't want to do without.

#17 Sunburn ~ Muse/Showbiz
Come waste your millions here, secretly she says
Another corporate show, a guilty conscience grows

I am in love with you
I am in love with you baby
I am in love with you yeah
Live for the moment

#19 It is You (I Have Loved) ~ Dana Glover/Shrek

There is something that I see
In the way you look at me
There's a smile, there's a truth in your eyes

#20 Remain ~ Kubb/Mother
Here's to the future
Forget about your past
Here's to the man who's life is just a gas
Heres to your sorrow
Oh I dread to think
Here's to the lost to have found anything

#21 A Man's a Man ~ Caern Folk/The Very Best of Scotland
Guessed by ladyofastolat
Is there for honest poverty
That hings his heed and a' that
The coward slave we pass him by
We dare be poor for a' that

#22 The Truth Beneath the Rose ~ Within Temptation/The Heart of Everything
Guessed by ariskari, safrialailo
Give me strength to face the truth, the doubt within my soul
No longer I can justify the bloodshed in his name
Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heaven's door

#23 You Were Right ~ Badly Drawn Boy/Now 53 - Disc 2
And you,
Were right to bide your time and not buy into my misery
Well the good things are never free
Do the colours of the rainbow look the same to everyone?

It's only now when words are said
that break my heart in two,
I wonder at how you endure
all I've said, all I say to you.

Screaming deceiving and bleeding for you

Paint on the front door
Or write in the clouds
