There are songs still unguessed on the latest round of the lyrics game!

Give it a try:

2) Everybody wants respect / Just a little bit Closer to Free by the Bodeans, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] marakara

3) Or maybe she's in the Bahamas / Where the Caribbean sea is blue

4) they all said "she's just another groupie slut" / and I said I thought you were anything but Sugar High, title guessed by [personal profile] cass404, but still looking for the artist.

5) I want to be great but greatness is giving / Giving leaves me empty / Oh great emptiness Simple by the Judybats, guessed by [personal profile] cesare

8) You could be my flamingo

14) I wanna know what it's like to be awkward and innocent, not belligerent

15) So, kiss me my sweet / and so let us part
