Memetic morphology, or: How I wrote a lyrics quiz

You know I said a while back that, though I hadn’t yet done a lyrics quiz, I would? Well, the more observant among you may have noticed it appearing right under your noses, gradually, in the very titles of these posts.

Yes, eight of the posts since I started this have titles that are quotes from popular (or not so popular) songs. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify the posts and the source of the quotes. It should mostly be pretty easy (I think).

As an extra clue, the song in question (if not the quote itself) always has some relevance to the content of the post (now there’s a way to get people to (re-)read my posts).

Go on, give it a try. I bet Swisstone has got the first one already.

This will probably be ongoing, with periodic roundups. And anyone who says, “Martin can’t think up decent titles of his own,” will probably be agreed with.

I noticed this morning that, judging by her titles, Purplerabbits seems to be doing the same sort of thing.
