Name That Song, round 8

It wouldn't be NaBloPoMo without Name that Song!

You have no excuse for not knowing these rules:
Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first few lines from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly. Wait a few days before posting the answers to give everyone a chance.
Using a search engine is, as is traditional, punished by public mocking.

Lines are now (over a year later!) closed and answers revealed!

Warning... incoming lyrics... warning... incoming lyrics...

#1 M1 A1 ~ Gorillaz
Hello, hello, is anyone there?
Hello, hello, is anyone there?
Hello, is anyone there?
Hello, is anyone there?

#2 The Piper O' Dundee ~ Caern Folk
The piper came to our town,
To our town, to our town
The piper came to our town
And he played so bonnielie

#3 The One I Love ~ The Rasmus
Guessed by ariskari
Haven't slept in a week
My bed has become my coffin
Cannot breath, cannot speak
My head's like a bomb, still waiting

#4 Aldebaran ~ Enya
Codladh fada, codladh domhain
Éirigh, amharc síos

#5 Tiny Little Fractures ~ Snow Patrol
Is there a place I can go?
Is there a way to get me there?
If I've forgotten what to say
It's because all words are dust.

#6 One Toy Soldier ~ Enya
One toy soldier stands alone
With his drum down by his side
One toy soldier on his own
With his drum to keep the time

#7 Everybody's Changing ~ Keane
You're aching, you're breaking
And I can see the pain in your eyes
Says everybody's changing
And I don't know why

#8 Only Time ~ Enya
Who can say where the road goes?
Where the day flows?
Only time

#9 Best of You ~ Foo Fighters
I've got another confession to make
I'm your fool
Everyone's got their chains to break
Holdin' you

#10 I Will Find You ~ Clannad
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a long, long time

#11 Memories ~ Within Temptation
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.

#12 If I Can't Have You ~ Kubb
I can't have you, and I don't have money
And if I can't have you, I don't want any.
Cause if I don't have you
Tell me what'll do
We've got no love and I've got nothing.

#13 The Low Hum ~ Moby
Here I am alone, this empty room
No sun is living here
I hear the muffled conversation
Of the neighbor, through the wall

#14 The Cave ~ Mumford & Sons
It's empty in the valley of your heart
The sun it rises slowly as you walk
Away from all the fears and all the faults you've left behind

#15 What Ever ~ The Rasmus
Disaster strikes
I try to write
Describe the things I hold inside
This pride of mine still keeps me distant

#16 Circle of Life ~ The Lion King
Guessed by ariskari and omgimsuchadork
From the day we arrived on the planet
and blinking stepped into the sun
theres more to see than can ever be seem
more to do than can ever be done

#17 Be Prepared ~ The Lion King (yes, my music player did give me these two back-to-back. Random number generators can be surprisingly not-random)
Guessed by ariskari and omgimsuchadork
I know that your powers of retention
Are as wet as a warthog's backside
But thick as you are, pay attention
My words are a matter of pride

#18 Newgrange ~ Clannad
There is a place on the east
Mysterious ring, a magical ring of stones
The druids lived here once, they said
Forgotten is the race that no one knows

#19 Race to the City ~ The Cinematics
Progress is so good
You've got to keep it moving
You have to be rich
Or richer than your father

#20 Escape ~ Muse
You would say anything
And you would try anything
To escape your meaningless
And your insignificance
You're uncontrollable
And we are unlovable
And I don't want you to think that I care
I never would, I never could again

#21 When I Needed a Saviour ~ Matt Redman
Looking back on time,
Seeking to remind myself of all Your mercies,
I can testify, on every page of life,
Your grace just keeps unfolding and unfolding.

#22 Wicked Soul ~ Kubb
I don't wanna watch the street on TV
I don't wanna hear about your day
I've got no time to hear, about how much you care
Shut your mouth and come this way

#23 Loose Ends ~ Imogen Heap
Doing everything by heart
Got a real flare with excuses
Meeting someone at the bar
Where loose ends still have your sins

#24 The Only One ~ Evanescence
When they all come crashing down- midflight
You know you're not the only one
When they're so alone they find a back door out of life
You know you're not the only one

#25 Mr. Mistoffeles ~ Cats
Guessed by ariskari
He is quiet and small, he is black
From his ears to the tip of his tail;
He can creep through the tiniest crack,
He can walk on the narrowest rail.
He can pick any card from a pack,
He is equally cunning with dice;
He is always deceiving you into believing
That he's only hunting for mice.

#26 Whiskey is the Life of Man ~ Bellowhead
Whiskey is the life of man
Whiskey from an old tin can
I like whiskey hot and strong
And I'll drink whiskey all day long

#27 Flyin Hi ~ Faithless
In the supermarket
Prospects not the nicest
My wife is about as cold as ice is
When stressed she’s not the wisest
Who is?

#28 The Keys of Canterbury ~ Show of Hands
Madam I will give you the keys of Canterbury
And all the bells in London shall ring to make us merry
If you will be my joy, my sweet and only dear
And walk along with me anywhere

#29 Broken Crown ~ Mumford & Sons
Well touch my mouth and hold my tounge
I'll never be your chosen one
I'll be home safe and tucked away
Well you can't tempt me if I don't see the day

#30 Sleeping Awake ~ P.O.D.
Reveal to me
The mysteries
Can you tell me what it means?
Explain these motions and metaphors
Unlock these secrets in me
Describe the visions
The meaning is missing
Won't anybody listen?
