How Does It Hurt to Hear Your Songs on the Radio (Radio, Radiooooooooooo)?

This has no point except for that it's audience interaction and I'm bored and I think I need to post something. Anyway, he's one of my literally classic music lyric guessing games, made of opening lyrics. And since I haven't done one since my "British expansion pack" musical renaissance (which is still raging beautifully) began, at least half of these are by British people I probably didn't know existed a year ago. Just saying. Use Google if ya want, I don't give a fuck. <3

08. "Mission one: I'ma put this on, when he see me in the dress I'ma get me some." Beyoncé, "Get Me Bodied" (James)

09. "The motorway won't take a horse, the wanderer has found a course to follow." Patrick Wolf, "The Libertine" (Wayne)

10. "Do you think everything, everyone is going mental?" Lily Allen, "Everything's Just Wonderful" (Dave)

11. "No wonder I'm scared to look in your eyes, you've turned me away so many times." La Roux, "Cover My Eyes" (Trashlexis)

12. "They didn't have you where I come from, never knew the best was yet to come." Dixie Chicks, "Lullaby" (Wayne)

16. "The problem of leisure, what to do for pleasure." Gang of Four, "Natural's Not in It" (Gehenna27)

17. "Well this stone that I have swallowed isn't going down so well."
