To start us off, heeeeeeere's Johnny's theme song:

Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now, don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time, having a good time

I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go, go, go
There's no stopping me

I'm burning through the skies, yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man of you

Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball, don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time, just give me a call
Don't stop me now ('Cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (Yes, I'm having a good time)
I don't want to stop at all

I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course
I am a satellite, I'm out of control
I am a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, explode

I'm burning through the skies, yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman out of you

Don't stop me, don't stop me, don't stop me
Hey, hey ,hey!
Don't stop me, don't stop me
Ooh, ooh, ooh (I like it)
Don't stop me, have a good time, good time
Don't stop me, don't stop me
Ooh, ooh, alright

I'm burning through the skies, yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm traveling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball, don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time
Just give me a call
Don't stop me now ('Cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (Yes, I'm having a good time)
I don't wanna stop at all

I Won't Change You - Sophie Ellis-Bextor

I used to change my accent, change my stance
My phone number, the way I dance
Some people change lovers like they change their sheets
But I won't change you, honey, you're for keeps

I used to think I had to change the way I am
To feel better, to get a man
But once I stopped trying I fell for you
You fell for me, so I'll stay the same for you

Oh yeah, I know that I'm not perfect, baby
Oh yeah, it's no reason to go crazy
Oh yeah, boy you can always count on me
For better or for worse, I will always put you first

Now that I have found you, you've changed my life
'Cause you're the one who showed me I had everything right
We're never gonna differ 'cause we know it's true
So don't change me and I won't change you

And I won't change
And I won't change you


I used to change my style like I changed my mind
I tried to change a tyre but I'm not that way inclined
Tried to change my figure, my diet too
I'll still change my underwear if that's okay with you

Oh yeah, the world can sometimes make you feel bad
Oh yeah, but don't forget the things you have
Oh yeah, boy you can always count on me
In sickness and in health, baby, always be yourself

Now that I have found you, you've changed my life
'Cause you're the one who showed me I had everything right
We're never gonna differ 'cause we know it's true
So don't change me and I won't change you

And I won't change
And I won't change you


Now that I have found you, you've changed my life
You're the one who showed me I had everything right
We're never gonna differ 'cause we know it's true
So don't change me and I won't change you

Now that I have found you, you've changed my life
'Cause you're the one who showed me I had everything right
We're never gonna differ 'cause we know it's true
So don't change me and I won't change you

And I won't change, and I won't change you
So don't change me and I won't change you

And I won't change
And I won't change you ...
[size=9:184a99ac32][color=darkblue:184a99ac32][i:184a99ac32][b:184a99ac32]I want you to be everything that's you, deep at the center of your being.[/b:184a99ac32][/i:184a99ac32][/color:184a99ac32][/size:184a99ac32]

The Search is Over - Survivor

How can I convince you what you see is real
Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel
I was always reachin', you were just a girl I knew
I took for granted the friend I have in you

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while

Can we last forever, will we fall apart
At times it's so confusing, these questions of the heart
You followed me through changes and patiently you'd wait
Till I came to my senses through some miracle of fate

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while

Now the miles stretch out behind me
Loves that I have lost
Broken hearts lie victims of the game
Then good luck it finally struck
Like lightning from the blue
Every highway leading me back to you

Now at last I hold you, now all is said and done
The search has come full circle
Our destinies are one
So if you ever loved me
Show me that you give a damn
You'll know for certain
The man I really am

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Then I touched your hand, I could hear you whisper
The search is over, love was right before my eyes

What I think of reading about these two. ;)

Almost Paradise Ann Wilson & Mike Reno

I thought that dreams belonged to other men.
Cause each time I got close they'd fall apart again.
I feared my heart would feel in secrecy.
I faced the nights alone

Oh how could I have known
That all my life I only needed you?
Oh...
Almost paradise!
We're knocking on Heaven's door.
Almost paradise!
How could we ask for more?

I swear that I can see forever in your eyes...
Paradise...

It seems like perfect love's so hard to find.
I'd almost given up, you must've read my mind.
And all these dreams I saved for a rainy day,
They're finally coming true.

I'll share them all with you
Cause now we hold the future in our hands...
Oh...

Almost paradise!
We're knocking on Heaven's door.
Almost paradise!
How could we ask for more?

I swear that I can see forever in your eyes...
Paradise...

And in your arms salvation's not so far away
It's getting closer, closer every day!

Almost paradise!
We're knocking on Heaven's door.
Almost paradise!
How could we ask for more?

I swear that I can see forever in your eyes...
Paradise...
Paradise...
Paradise.

Hard as a Rock.

AC/DC.

A rollin' rock, electric shock
It gives a lickin' that doesn't stop
She line 'em up, push you 'round
Smokin' rings going 'round and 'round

Her hot potatoes
Will elevate you
Her bad behavior
Will leave you standing proud
Hard as a rock

(CHORUS)
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock

The lightnin' rod, strike it hot
Gonna hit you like the Rushmore rock
No nicotine, no pipe dreams
So low and dirty, it's darn right mean

Hell elevator
I'll see you later
No I ain't gonna take it
I'm bustin' out
Hard as a rock

(CHORUS repeat)
"Now suppose we talk about this like gentlemen...or I'll knock your block off."

Sympathy For The Devil.

Rolling Stones.


Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and fate

I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moments of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a General's rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
What's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched the glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the Gods they made

I shouted out
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
Well after all
It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game, ooh yeah

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails just call me Lucifer
I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me, have some courtesy
Have some sympathy and some taste
Use all your well learned politics
Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mmm yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, mmm yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, get down
Woo hoo, ah yeah, get on down, oh yeah

Tell me, baby, what's my name?
Tell me, honey, baby guess my name
Tell me, baby, what's my name?
I'll ya one time you're to blame

What's my name?
Tell me, baby, what's my name?
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name?
"Now suppose we talk about this like gentlemen...or I'll knock your block off."

I Knew I Loved You - Savage Garden

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes,
I think I found my best friend
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only the sense of completion
And in your eyes, I see
The missing pieces I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound
More than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I Bruise Easily - Natasha Bedingfield

My skin is like a map
Of where my heart has been
And I cant hide the marks
but its not a negative thing
So I let down my guard
Drop my defences down by my clothes
I'm learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow

I bruise easily
So be gentle when you handle me
Theres a mark you leave
Like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily
Can't scratch the surface
Without moving me underneath
I bruise easily
I bruise easily

I found your fingerprints
On a glass of wine
Do you know you're leaving them
All over this heart of mine too
But if I never take this leap of faith
I'll never know
So im learning to fall
With no safety net to cushion the blow

I bruise easily
So be gentle when you handle me
Theres a mark you leave
Like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily
Can't scratch the surface
Without moving me underneath
I bruise easily
I bruise easily

Anyone who can touch you
Can hurt you or heal you
Anyone who can reach you
Can love you or leave you

So be gentle
so be gentle
so be gentle

I bruise easily
So be gentle when you handle me
Theres a mark you leave
Like a love heart carved on a tree
I bruise easily
Can't scratch the surface
Without moving me underneath
I bruise easily
I bruise easily

I bruise easily
I bruise easily
[size=9:184a99ac32][color=darkblue:184a99ac32][i:184a99ac32][b:184a99ac32]I want you to be everything that's you, deep at the center of your being.[/b:184a99ac32][/i:184a99ac32][/color:184a99ac32][/size:184a99ac32]

Bad Day - Daniel Powter

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
[size=9:184a99ac32][color=darkblue:184a99ac32][i:184a99ac32][b:184a99ac32]I want you to be everything that's you, deep at the center of your being.[/b:184a99ac32][/i:184a99ac32][/color:184a99ac32][/size:184a99ac32]

Superman - Laslo Bane

Out the door just in time
Head down the 405
Gotta meet the new boss by 8 am

The phone rings in the car
The wife is workin' hard
She runnin late tonight again

Well, I know what I?ve been told
You gotta work to feed the soul
But I can?t do this all on my own
No, I know
I?m no superman
I?m no superman

And you've got your love online
You think you're doin' fine
But you?re just plugged into the wall

And that deck of tarot cards
Won?t get you very far
There ain't no hand to break your fall

Well, I know what I've been told
You gotta know just when to fold,
But I can?t do this all on my own
No, I know
I?m no superman
I?m no superman

You?ve crossed the finish line
Won the race but lost your mind
Was it worth it after all?

I need you here with me
Cause love is all we need,
Just take a hold of the hand that breaks the fall

Well, I know what I?ve been told
Gotta break free to break the mold
But I can?t do this all on my own

No, I can?t do this all on my own
No, I know
That I'm no
Superman
I?m no superman
I?m no superman

(Some day we'll be together)
I?m no superman
(Some day)
(Someday we'll be together)
(Someday)
I?m no superman

An oldie but goodie for Steve and Lucy...

The Nearness of You - Nora Jones (Washington/Carmichael)

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you

Breathless - The Corrs

Go on go on
Leave me breathless
Come on

Hey... yeah...

The daylight's fading slowly
The time with you is standing still
I'm waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I feel weak
I cannot lie, from you I cannot hide
And I'm losing the will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it), can't fight it (can't fight it)

So go on, go on, come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me, until I can't deny
This loving feeling (loving feeling)
Make me long for your kiss
Go on (go on), go on (go on)
Yeah...
Come on
Yeah...

And if there's no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I'm happy just to have you
You're all the love I need somehow
It's like a dream
Although I'm not asleep
And I never want to wake up
Don't lose it (don't lose it), don't leave it (don't leave it)

So go on, go on, come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me, until I can't deny
This loving feeling (loving feeling)
Make me long for your kiss
Go on (go on), go on (go on)
Yeah...
Come on

Yeah-ie, yeah, yeah-ie, yeah...

And I can't lie
From you I cannot hide
And I've lost my will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it), can't fight it, (can't fight it)

So go on, (go on) go on, (go on), come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me, until I can't deny
This loving feeling (loving feeling) Make me long for your kiss

Go on, (go on) go on, (go on) come on, leave... me breathless
Go on, (go on) go on, (go on) come on, leave... me breathless
Go on, (go on) go on, (go on) come on, leave... me breathless
Go on... go on!

Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top

Clean shirt, new shoes
and I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' a single thing.
And cufflinks, stick pin,
when I step out I'm gonna do you in.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, top hat,
I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
lookin' sharp and lookin' for love.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
