1980s music lyric quote quiz!

This is not a race to see who answers first. As long as you don't peek at other people's answers, you can still answer the stuff that other people already answered.

I will post a complete list of answers in a few days.

1) "It's incredible. You bring out the animal, in me."

2) "You mean you forgot cranberries too?"

3) "When I close my eyes, all the time slips by. Cause I can see him, oh so clearly, in my mind."

4) "We walked the loneliest mile. We smiled without any style. We kiss altogether wrong. No intention."

5) "You look at me as if you're in a daze. It's like the feeling at the end of the page, when you realize, you don't know what you just read."

6) "Looking out a dirty old window. Down below the cars in the city go rushing by. I sit here alone and I wonder why."

7) "Now I wind up staring at an empty glass. Uh uh uh, uh uh uh, uh uh. Cause its so easy to say that you'll forget your past. Uh uh uh, uh uh uh, uh uh."

8) "For the price of a dime, I can always turn to you."

9) "The king called up his jet fighters. He said you better earn your pay."

10) "Litte things remind me of you. Cheap cologne and that damn song too."

11) "Could I ever love someone like the one I see in you? I remember the good times baby now, and the bad times too. These last few weeks of holding on, the days are dull the nights are long."

12) "The tunnel of love might amuse you, and Noah's Ark might confuse you."

13) "Well I've had all I can take. I can't take it no more. I'm gonna, pack my bags and fly, my way, or no way at all."

14) "He goes to college. Gathers knowledge. What that boy knows."

15) "Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past. You must fight just to keep them alive."

16) "I'm just the average guy. I fool around, a little on the side."

17) "You've been around all night, and that's a little long. You think you've got the right, but I think you've got it wrong."

18) "Funny, you know it makes you mad. Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done? Maybe, I know it makes you sad. But when they're handing out the heartaches you know you've got to have you some."

19) "Tumble out of bed, and I stumble to the kitchen, pour myself a cup of ambition, and yawn and stretch and try to come to life."

20) "I got a kid I'm 33."

Please post your answers! Thanks!

When I said it wasn't a race, I meant that people can answer even after other people already answered. But I didn't mean that people should avoid answering.

Those are both correct!

9 to 5 in on my CD "Billboard Top Hits 1981." Plus I heard it on the radio a whole bunch that year, too.

Technically, it was Richard and Linda Thompson.

I was going to say that I'd be very impressed if anyone got that one, but then I saw it was you.
