Another music meme

This one's making the rounds on facebook and the blogosphere.

Put your music library on shuffle.
Post the first lines of the first 25 16 songs that come up.
The game: Guess which songs the first lines are from!
If you're googling, then you're cheating!

(I skipped songs where the title is in the first line).

1. I feel depressed, I feel so bad..
2. Sometimes I feel so lonely
3. I'm really close tonight .
4. Long ago, life was clean
5. All your dreams are made
6. I used to say dumb things
7. If I said I'd lost my way
8. I see your money on the floor
9. I've waited too long to have you
10. Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
11. Said the straight man to the late man
12. And in the element of light
13. Do you remember chalk hearts melting on a playground wall
14. Went to college, studied art
15. Sometimes I wonder if you're really living
16. The Sunday morning gospel goes good with the soul

I'm terrible at this because I pay so little attention to lyrics. Anyway: 2 is probably several songs... 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 14 seem familiar but I can't place them. 8 is "Gardening at Night" by R.E.M. of course. Is 9 "Game of Pricks" by GBV? 11 is "I Talk to the Trees" by King Crimson (my misspent youth paying off here...). 12 is "Airscape" by that Hitchcock fella and his Egyptian Orchestra. The rest don't suggest much to me. I will probably know 70-80% of the titles when you list them, even if I don't recognize the lines...

#8 is "Gardening at Night"
#9 is "Game of Pricks"
#11 is "I Talk to the WIND"
#12 is "Airscape"

Now we just need three more people to guess four songs each.

#2 is not by Primal Scream

Is #2 "Be My Wife" by David Bowie?

#2 is not by David Bowie, and it's also not "Pale Blue Eyes".

The first line in "PBE" is "Sometimes I feel so happy"
