17) Billy Joel!! Goodnight Saigon, I love that song and I get to see him live in December. Yay!

...That's the only one I know, I have odd tastes in music. I should do this, see how many people guess my weird ones. Happy Thanksgiving by the way, I only vaguely know what it's all about but I hope you enjoy it.

EDIT: I just realized I knew 15 as well, another awesome song, lol but someone else can have it.

It's all my dad's fault that I have all of the Billy Joel I do. I grew up listening to Allentown because my grandfather was born there. And we played Piano Man at his funeral. I think it's safe to say that we love Billy in this family.

And there's nothing wrong with having odd taste in music. I mean, look at my list. I can beat that no one will guess a good portion of these songs. Some are underground music here in the States, one is a pop song from France, and several are emo music from when I was in my late teens. Don't feel bad. And this is only one of the mildly odd lists. :D

15 is an awesome song, but I had never heard of it before my Terry Moore/Strangers in Paradise phase. I think Terry put the song somewhere in the comic, but it escapes me at the moment.

1 - And so it goes by Billy Joel. We sang this in my competition choir my senior year. BEAUTIFUL song!

11 - Without You from My Fair Lady. Which would be... Marney Nixon?

15 - Is this Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles? I thought that was Ahhhhh, look at all the lonely people.

And of course the music junkie would swoop down and get three all at once. Right on every last one, Lori. *grins* I'm not so sure about the opening lyrics on #15. I may have misphrased it. *goes to listen again*

And that's awesome about And So It Goes! I met the song several years back when it was set to a highly-dramatic scene in a comic I was reading and feel head-over-heels for it. It makes me cry every time I listen to it.

16 rings a bell, but I can't remember. How frustrating. <_< Beyonce ft somebody I think...
