*Smacks head* As soon as you listed the songs, I could come up with nearly all of the lyrics for a bunch of the ones I missed. Like that Monkees one. And the red hot chili peppers song, and a few others. Like I said about needing the music. Music clips are easier than snippits of the lyrics. It was fun anyway!

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
