As promised, here are the answers to the Sing, Sing A Song, Sing Out Loud contest. Christopher at CleverFool wins with 17/20 correct responses.

Christopher wins bragging rights!

This was fun...I'll be doing it again, but making it much much more difficult. We're just warming up. And in case you missed it, this is an actual photo of my deaf parents. My father jammin' on the geetar and my pregnant (with me) mother groovin' to his smoove tunes.

1. Madonna, Let It Will Be
Now I can tell you about success, about fame
About the rise and the fall
of all the stars in the sky
Don't it make you smile?

2. Santana w/ Rob Thomas, Smooth
Man its a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone
But you stay so cool

3. Annie Lennox, Love Song For A Vampire
Come into these arms again
and lay your body down.
The rhythm of this trembling heart
is beating like a drum.

4. Sarah McLachlan, Fear
Morning smiles
Like the face of a newborn child
Innocent unknowing winter’s end
Promises of a long lost friend

5. Nine Inch Nails, Man With A Gun
I am a big man (yes I am),
and I have a big gun.
Got me a big old dick and I,
I like to have fun

6. David Bowie, John, I'm Only Dancing
Well, Annie's pretty neat, she always eats her meat
Joe is awful strong, bet your life he's putting us on
Oh lordy, oh lordy, you know I need some loving
I'm moving, touch me

7. Djako, Devil Train
Take with me the cocaine train
Take with me the cocaine train
Take this line.
Take this line.

8. Duran Duran, Dirty Great Monster
There's a dirty great monster in this house
we pretend that it's not there
and there's no escape from it's it's grip
but nobody seems to care

9. Gwen Stefani, Cool
It's hard to remember how it felt before.
Now I found the love of my life.
Passes things get more comfortable.
Everything is going right.

10. Prince, Gett Off
How can I put this in a way so as not to offend or unnerve
There's a rumour goin' all round that you ain't been gettin' served
They say that you ain't you know what
In baby who knows how long

11. The Propellerheads w/ Shirley Bassey, History Repeating
The word is about, there's something evolving,
whatever may come, the world keeps revolving
They say the next big thing is here,
that the revolution's near

12. Christina Aguilera w/ L'il Kim, Can't Hold Us Down
So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak whats on my mind
Guess its easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

13. Lisa Stansfield, We Can't Deny It
We've got it together darlin', we're ready for it
You see I'm smilin'
Hmm we've got the people talkin', they know how we feel
And it's no big deal

14. Gabrielle, Dreams
Move a step closer you know that I want you
I can tell by your eyes that you want me too
Just a question of time I knew we'd be together
And that you'd be mine I want you here forever

15. Sheena Easton, Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)
I've been away from you for far too long
Too much chances make my heart go frantic
I wanna tell you what's been goin' on,
operator give me Trans Atlantic

16. Rent, Without You
Without you,
the ground thaws,
the rain falls,
the grass grows.

17. Radiohead (or Mark Ronson), Just
Can't get the stink off
He's been hanging round for days
Comes like a comet
Suckered you but not your friends

18. Mary J. Blige, Family Affair
Let's get it crunk, we gonna' have fun
Up on in this dancery
We got ya open, now ya floatin'
So you gots to dance for me

19. Cyndi Lauper, She-Bop
Well, I see them every night in tight blue jeans
In the pages of a blue boy magazine
Hey I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up good vibration

20. Boy George, Evil Is So Civilised
Far out across the rooftops
Where the televisions sleep
Behind the perfect picture
Lie fanatical beliefs
