Filler, I know, but hey at least I'm posting the answers in a reasonable amount of time!

Anyway, it's time for the answers to round 10 of Name That Song! There were no comments on LiveJournal (which I was half-expecting), but I cross-posted the same quiz to Facebook and got some surprising results there. Turns out a few songs I thought were originals are actually covers!

#1 Linkin Park - Pts.Of.Athrty (Reanimation remix)
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

#2 U2 - Desire
Lover I'm off the streets
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire
Desire

#3 Enya - Orinoco Flow
Let me sail, let me sail
Let the Orinoco Flow
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli

#4 Mozart - Lacrimosa
Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus

#5 Mumford & Sons - Lovers' Eyes
Love was kind for a time
But now just aches and it makes me blind
This mirror holds my eyes too bright
But I can't see the others other in my life

#6 Clannad - Skellig
Like mighty ships that sail the Atlantic foam
The Skellig Isles parade the Kerry Coast
It's a strange place with the needle's eye
Where shipwrecks lie

#7 The Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen In Love (cover by Pete Yorn, from the Shrek 2 soundtrack)
You spurn my natural emotions
You make me feel like dirt
And I'm hurt
And if I start a commotion
I run the risk of losing you
And that's worse

#8 The Lion King - Circle of Life
From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

#9 Cass Fox - Touch Me
Touch me in the mornin
And last thing at night
Keep my body warm baby, you know it feels right
Take it a little higher
I'm takin it too
Tell me what your feelin
I'll feel it with you

#10 Enya - Caribbean Blue
So the world goes round and round
With all you ever knew
They say the sky high above
Is Caribbean blue

#11 Nelly Furtado - Picture Perfect
Picture perfect a life that you saw in a magazine
Or maybe a traveling book
Wanted to get on that plane and fly away
cause you are a rock star deep down inside

#12 Thievery Corporation - Until the Morning
I keep on fear, keep on loathing
Nothing brings it on I keep on falling
Decide what it is I can not find

#13 Keane - This is the Last Time
This is the last time
That I will say these words
I remember the first time
The first of many lies

#14 Mumford & Sons - Broken Crown
Touch my mouth
And hold my tongue
I'll never be your chosen one
I'll be home, safely tucked away
You can't tempt me if I don't see the day

#15 The Proclaimers - I'm on My Way (from the Shrek 1 soundtrack)
I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
I'm on my way to what I want from this world
And years from now you'll make it to the next world
And everything that you receive up yonder
Is what you gave to me the day I wandered

#16 The Mother Fungus - I Wish I'd Never
This was really obscure - it's from the Songs for Phillip charity CD.
And knowing you has been a joke
The coffee bars and restaurants
Horse-drawn carts and beating hearts
Romantics: they make me want to choke

#17 Gorillaz - Last Living Souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls

#18 Frank Sinatra - Under My Skin (cover by Abraxas)
I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart that you're almost a part of me
And I've got you under my skin

#19 Nightwish - Bless the Child
I was born amidst the purple waterfalls
I was weak, yet not unblessed
Dead to the world
Alive for the journey

#20 Nightwish - Turn Loose the Mermaids
A kite above a graveyard grey
At the end of the line far far away
A child holding on to the magic of birth and awe

#21 It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold

#22 30 Seconds to Mars - Fallen
Yeah, I've been to Jupiter
And I've fallen through the air
I used to live out on the moon
But now I'm back here down on Earth

#23 John Lennon - Imagine (cover by Eva Cassidy)
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

#24 Joni - I Guess That's How it Goes
I guess that's how it goes
Broken dreams, ripped out seams
So hard to turn away
And face the day

#25 Coldplay - Trouble
Oh no I see
A spider web it's tangled up with me
And I lost my head
And thought of all the stupid things I said

#26 Clannad - Fadó
Anois i dtús an fhómhair
Is mé smaointiú siar
Ar an laethe aerach'i bhfad ó shoin
'S mé a' súgradh le mo mhian
Bhí áilneacht aoibhinn ar a h-aghaidh
Is sólás in a croí
Ba sin fadó a bhuachaill
Ba sin fadó, fadó

#27 Andrew Lloyd Webber - Jacob & Sons/Joseph's Coat (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat)
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

#28 Eels - My Beloved Monster (from the Shrek 1 soundtrack)
My beloved monster and me
We go everywhere together
Wearing a raincoat that has four sleeves
Gets us through all kinds of weather

#29 Sonic Adventure 2 - Believe in Myself
When all alone in my chair
I just go about wishing
Wanna be strong, really wanna be trusted
When all alone in my bed
I just go about yearning
Wanna be cool, I also wanna be like him

#30 Bellowhead - Little Sally Racket
Little Sally Racket
Haul her away!
She pawned my best jacket
Haul her away!
And she lost the ticket
Haul her away!

Let's see... there were a lot of mainstream songs in there, but my music player also threw up a few more random entries. Songs for Phillip is incredibly obscure (I'm not sure if it was ever sold outside of Horsham), and I wouldn't have thought many people will know the Sonic Adventure 2 soundtrack. And of course there's an Irish entry from Clannad in there to mix things up.

The high score over on Facebook was 10 tracks right (artist or album or title) - did anyone here do better?

Er. Four.

So I'm fairly near the "knows nothing" end of the spectrum.
