Trivia Tuesday: Name That Tune

Happy Tuesday everyone! Listed below are lyrics from 10 songs. Your challenge is to name the songs and the artists.

1. He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich.

2. I got some money in my pocket, about ready to burn. I don't remember where I got it, I gotta get it to you.

3. In the midnight hour, she cried more more more.

4. Did you make it to the Milky Way?
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated? (I originally thought this line was "Van Halen is overrated.")

5. Why follow me to higher ground?
Lost as you swear I am
Don't throw away your basic needs
Ambiance and vanity.

6. You love me, you hate me, I tried to take the loss
You're cryin' me a river but I got to get across

7. Who's that gigolo on the street
With his hands in his pockets and his crocodile feet

8. Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill
you got social security, but that don't pay your bills

9. The city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien.

10. 1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3p
Everybody loves (oh) Countin'
(hint - I analyzed this song last month)

As always, please do not use the internet to search for answers and leave your answers in the comments section below. Good luck!

Although Neena went 10 for 10 (I'll give her credit for Tonight, Tonight, Tonight by Genesis and 3 by Britney), the Frank Zappa song from Hand of Godard made me laugh. Of course, Zappa really did write a song titled Don't Eat the Yellow Snow. Who knew? (Not me.)

Neena - You need to join us for trivia sometime. You are the Ken Jennings of Trivia Tuesday!
