Bring on the wall answers!

#1 Insomnia ~ Faithless
Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
Creaky noises make my skin creep,
I need to get some sleep,
I can't get no sleep...

#2 Echelon ~ 30 Seconds to Mars/30 Seconds to Mars
Look at the red, red changes in the sky
Look at the separation in the borderline
But don't look at everything here inside
And be afraid, afraid to speak your mind

#3 Lacrimosa ~ Mozart/Requiem
Guessed by allegramente
Lacrimosa dies illa,
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus

#4 Place for my Head ~ Linkin Park/Hybrid Theory
Guessed by ariskari
I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night,
Shining with the light from the sun
But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming,
The moon's gonna owe it one

#5 The Galway Farmer ~ Show of Hands
I worked my days on a Galway Farm
In the sun and rain and wind and storm
But once a year I'll chance my arm
And cross the sea to England

#6 Two Sisters ~ Clannad/An Díolaim
There were two sisters side by side
Sing I-dum, sing I-day
There were two sisters side by side
The boys are born for me
The eldest for young Johnny cried
I'll be true unto my love if he'll be true to me

#7 Memories ~ Within Temptation/The Silent Force
In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind
There's no other way
I prayed to the gods let him stay
The memories ease the pain inside,
Now I know why

#8 Parce Mihi Domine ~ Jan Garbarek & the Hilliar Ensemble/Officium
Parce mihi domine, nihil enim sunt dies mei
Quid est homo, quia magnificas eum

#9 Thistle & Weeds ~ Mumford & Sons/Sigh No More
Spare me your judgements and spare me your dreams
'Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams
I sit alone in this winter clarity which clouds my mind

#10 Hoist the Colours ~ Hans Zimmer/Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Guessed by ariskari
The king and his men
Stole the queen from her bed
And bound her in her bones
The seas be ours
And by the powers
Where we will we'll roam

#11 The Heart of Everything ~ Within Temptation/The Heart of Everything
For the pain and the sorrow caused by my mistakes
Won't repent to a mortal whom is all to blame
Now I know I won't make it
There will be a time we'll get back our freedom
They can't break what's inside
I'll face it cause it's the heart of everything

#12 Atom Bomb ~ Fluke/Risotto
Baby's got an atom bomb,
A mother fuckin' atom bomb,
Twenty two mega tonne,
I ain't ever seen so much fun

#13 Dies Irae ~ Karl Jenkins/Requiem
Guessed by allegramente
Dies irae! Dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla
Teste David cum Sibylla!

#14 Thomas the Rhymer ~ Steeleye Span/Now We Are Six
Guessed by allegramente
True Thomas sat on Huntley bank
And he beheld a lady gay
A lady that was brisk and bold
Come riding o'er the ferny brae

#15 Coming up for Air ~ Siobhan Donaghy/Ghosts
Is this a question of time
Is this a question of space
I've been out of my mind
I'm coming up for air
To work it out

#16 White Fool ~ Clannad/Sirius
White fool, come to a new land
There's a dark moon on the sand
Then nothing was ever the same again
This land is in their hands

#17 I Love You… I'll Kill You ~ Enigma/The Cross of Changes
I see love, I can see passion
I feel danger, I feel obsession
Don't play games with the ones who love you

#18 All Good People ~ Nerina Pallot/Fires
Hey was there something that you wanted to say?
I don't know what to do when you look that way
Cigarettes and tequila at six
And the sun going down on our life as it is

#19 I Have a Wish ~ Steeleye Span/A Rare Collection
I have a wish, just a silly old wish
I have a dream, just a silly old dream

#20 Like the Wind ~ Steeleye Span/A Rare Collection
Like the wind, hovering high
Like the clouds drifting by
We can fly
We can fly

#21 Fairy Tales ~ Joni/Voices
She read her fairy tales
And brought the words to life
Found a friend she'd waited for

#22 Country Life ~ Show of Hands
Working in the rain cutting down wood
Didn't do my little brother much good
Lost two fingers in a chainsaw bite
All he does now is drink and fight
Sells a bit of grass hots up cars
Talks of travel never gets far
Loves his kids left his wife
An everyday story of country life

#23 Hakuna Matata ~ Walt Disney/The Lion King
Guessed by omgimsuchadork and ariskari
Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

#24 Space Dementia ~ Muse/Hullabaloo Soundtrack disc 2
H-eight is the one for me
It gives me all I need
And helps me co-exist with the chill

#25 Gravity of Love ~ Enigma
Turn around and smell what you don't see
Close your eyes… it is so clear
Here's the mirror, behind there is a screen
On both ways you can get in

#26 Papercut ~ Linkin Park/Hybrid Theory
Guessed by ariskari
Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head

#27 One More Time ~ Daft Punk/Musique, Vol.1 1933-2005
One more time
I gonna celebrate
Oh yeah, all right
Don't stop the dancing

#28 Theme from Harry's Game ~ Clannad
Guessed by allegramente (half point for artist)
Imtheochaidh soir is siar
A dtáinig ariamh an ghealach is an ghrian

#29 Treasure ~ Iona/Beyond These Shores
Consider the flowers of the field in their beauty
More lovely that even the clothes of a king
Consider the birds of the air
Flying high, flying free
You are precious to me

#30 The Grid ~ TRON: Legacy/Daft Punk
The grid
A digital frontier
I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer

So out of the 30 songs, a sum total of 8 were successfully guessed by 3 readers. Huh, I thought it would actually be easier this time. Anyway, the results are in, and the medals have been awarded:

The bronze goes to omgimsuchadork with 1 points. allegramente has managed the silver medal with 3.5 points (you only get half a point for #28, since you only guessed the artist). But the gold medal goes to ariskari with a grand total of 4 points! Congratulations!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, rounds out the month of daily updates for NaBloPoMo! Congratulations to omgimsuchadork for also managing to post every day, special congratulations to allegramente for achieving the required 30 posts in just over half the time, and a honourable mention for talismancer who's likely provided more actual content in his 23 days of posting than I've managed in the entire month.

Oooooh, bronze! :D

I haven't won yet! Something awful could happen to me in the next five hours that prevents me from posting. Knock on wood, I'll get around to it. :D But thank you, and congratulations to you too!

Victory is mine!

Although I really should have got Heart of Everything as well. Memories I don't know all that well, but if I'd bothered to look at Heart of Everything beyond the first two or so lines I'd have probably been able to guess.
