While it's tempting to save this lot until next years NaBloPoMo, to do so would be epic levels of cheating beyond what talismancer managed this year. Especially as not only is this a meme, but I actually wrote this post back on the 28th. So rather than let all that work go to waste here it is, the ninth round of Name that Song!

Do I really need to tell you the rules:
Step 1: Put your media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first few lines from the first 30 songs with lyrics that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist/composer/work 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 snark.

My music player worries me sometimes...

#1
I paid my last respects this mornin' on an early grave
Already said goodbye, nothin' left to say
A tiny church a tiny town and not a tear was spent
Not how I wanted it, I'm hating all of this

#2
Ave, generosa,
gloriosa et intacta puella
Tu pupilla castitatis,
tu materia sanctitatis,
que Deo placuit

#3
Yo, yo
Forfeit the game, before somebody takes you out of the frame
Put your name to shame, cover up your face
You can't run the race, the pace is too fast, you just won't last

#4
Imtheochaidh soir is siar
A dtáinig ariamh an ghealach is an ghrian

Fol lol the doh, fol the day
Fol the doh, fol the day

#5
Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill
Is Dexter ill today, Mr Kirk, Dexter's in school
I'm afraid he's not, Miss Fishborne
Dexter's truancy problem is way out of hand
The Baltimore County school board have decided to expel
Dexter from the entire public school system
Oh Mr Kirk, I'm as upset as you to learn of Dexter's truancy
But surely, expulsion is not the answer!
I'm afraid expulsion is the only answer
It's the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane

#6
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

#7
It is the passion flowing right on through your veins
Then it's the feeling like you're also glad you came
And it's the moment she'll remember you're alive
It is the air you breathe, the element of fire
It is that flower that you took the time to smell
It is the power that you know you got as well
It is the fear inside that you can overcome
This is the orchestra, the rhythm and the drum

#8
Pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem, dona eis requiem

#9
I don't know how to love him
What to do how to move him
I've been changed yes really changed
In these past few days when I've seen myself
I seem like someone else

#10
Can you hear me
Hear me screamin'
Breaking in the muted skies
This thunder heart
Like bombs beating
Echoing a thousand miles

Mine is yours and yours is mine
There is no divide
In your honor
I would die tonight

#11
Way way back many centuries ago, not long after the Bible began
Jacob lived in the land of Canaan, a fine example of a family man
Jacob, Jacob and sons, depended on farming to earn their keep
Jacob, Jacob and sons, spent all of their days in the fields with sheep

#12
My hopes just fell, and I can't see
The reason why, why there is blood on my sleeve
And all this time, I thought it mine
But it's not, it's yours and

It's not worth it for me, gets harder every time call you
This life you lead, like swimming in a shiny ballroom

#13
This little Babe so few days old is come to rifle Satan's fold;
All hell doth at his presence quake though he himself for cold do shake;
For in this weak unarmed wise the gates of hell he will surprise

#14
No I've changed
I have changed
Just like you
Just like you
For how long
For how long
Must I wait
I know there's something wrong

Your concrete heart isn't beating
And you tried to
Make it come alive

#15
Feels like the weight of the world
Like God in heaven gave me a turn
Don't cling to me, I swear I can't fix you
Still in the dark, can you fix me?

#16
Today the grass is greener than I have ever seen
Today the sky is bluer than it has ever been
And today my heart is beating like I've never felt it beat
And today the flowers are growing from the ground beneath my feet

Today my hope is stronger and the vision's clearer
To walk in love eternal, the path that takes me nearer
And to You the music's playing like it has never done
And to You my feet are dancing underneath the sun

#17
All around my hat I will wear the green willow
All around my hat for a twelve-month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who's far far away

#18
One day, one night, one moment
My dreams could be tomorrow
One step, one fall, one falter
East or west, over earth or by ocean
One way to be my journey
This way could be my Book of Days

#19
I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

#20
Once, once upon a time
Thought that you'd be mine
But then you let your colors shine
I wanted to believe
That you were right for me
Well how could I be so naive
Now we're broken
Forget me not
I'm falling down and I can't stop

#21
Life is a wheel of changes
But changes are life
And someday we will have to say good bye
But our spirit will survive

#22
We never saw her coming until it was too late
Some may call it arrogance some may call it fate
But in my darkest moments I never did foresee
What fell the day Katrina took my love from me

#23
You don't remember my name
I don't really care
Can we play the game your way?
Can I really lose control?

#24
Tá gealach na gconnlach ag éirí sa spéir
'S grian bhuí an Fhómhair ag tomadh sa weir
Tá na beachógaí 'dranndián sa tsean duilliúr donn
Tá Gaoth Barra na g'Coillte, Gaoth Barra na d'Tonn

#25
I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company
I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

#26
Graffiti decorations
Under the sky of dust
A constant wave of tension
On top of broken trust
The lessons that you taught me
I learned were never true

#27
Carry my soul into the night
May the stars guide my way
I glory in the sight
As darkness takes the day
Ferte in noctem animam meam
Illustre stelle viam meam
Aspectu illo glorior
Dumb capit nox diem

#28
I'm cool. I'm lookin after myself
As I would never place wealth before my spirit
I fear it's unhealthy, the devil creep around you so stealthy stealthy
Til ya get bold, rush the gold an before ya time is over
Ya soul is sold, where's it gettin ya?
Competition start swearin ya, goldiggers setting you up

#29
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

An' I
Was rushing round in circles
For a reason to believe
Wipe the slime from off your sleeve
You could follow me for weeks
And I'm not going anywhere

#30
I saw a maiden sitting and sing
She lull'd her child, a little lording
Lullay, lullay, my dear son, my sweeting
Lullay, lullay, my dear son, my own dear dearing

I'll try to post the answers this year!
