As ever, I apologise for how ridiculous my musical tastes are. (But seriously, if you're Discworld fans, try to listen to Steeleye's Wintersmith! It's good!)

1) We've been driving around
The Mesopotamians, TMBG

2) [title], in London he did dwell
There Was a Wealthy Merchant, Trad./Steeleye Span. Identified as Trad by [livejournal.com profile] pedanther
(Actually, one of those ones where it seems like they've stitched about three similar traditional songs together; I've gone on about this before.)

2) Mary is on her own again
More Fool I, Dougie Maclean

3) If someone sneaks into your home to try to sneak your stuff away
Stab a Burglar, Mitch Benn

4)There's no-one here who feels no pain
Little Chalk Blue, Roger Glover

5) Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
Rainbow Connection, Kermit the Frog. Got by [livejournal.com profile] pedanther

6) Be my queen of the winter world
Crown of Ice, Steeleye Span

7) One of these days, baby, one of these days, I'm gonna close that sliding door
Right Now Baby, Mitch Benn

8) Can anyone explain? I shared your truth today
Year of the Flood, Runrig

9) We're striking them down in the name of the Lord
God is On Everyone's Side, Mitch Benn

10) Na, na-na, nana-nana
Hey Jude/The Mason's Apron, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, based loosely on the Beatles song and the traditional reel, vocals by the audience from the sound of it.
(Yeah, okay, maybe this one needs unpacking. Obviously, the Beatles' "Hey Jude" doesn't start with the nananas, but the Chilli Pipers version is mostly an instrumental, except when the nananas come in near the end. This is arguably a cheat, but I really wanted to include a Chilli Pipers track, and I didn't know one of the two I have with an actual vocalist would come up later.)

11) There were eighty-seven Advil in the bottle, now there's thirty left
Til My Head Falls Off, TMBG

12) Gonna tell everybody all around the world
Cover Girl, The Band With Rocks In

13) You made me older than my years
We Shall Wear Midnight, Steeleye Span

14) Out on the Chalk she watched her flock, steady and true
Granny Aching, Steeleye Span. Band identified by [livejournal.com profile] pedanther

15) All the homes of the globe are the television in your eyes
Edge of the World, Runrig. Got by [livejournal.com profile] speakr2customrs

16) There is nothing like the feeling of early morning sunshine
One Morning in Bar Harbor, originally by Eric Bogle, my version by Ranald Smith & Iain MacGillivray
(Actually, I may well also have the original in there somewhere, but the one that came up was Ranald and Iain)

17) I'd rather be a [redacted] than a king, I'll tell you the reason why
The Begger, possibly Trad?/Steeleye Span

18) Oh, I'm sure that the way you're laughing
Sandy Bell's Broadsheet, Dougie Maclean

19) The radio is playing tracks from his new CD
Sometimes You Just Can't Move For Elton John, Mitch Benn

21) Newsround, Newsnight, iPlayer website
I'm Proud of the BBC, Mitch Benn. Got by [livejournal.com profile] pedanther and [livejournal.com profile] sabremeister

22) I was standing all alone against the world outside
Love Will Keep Us Alive, originally by the Eagles, my version by the Red Hot Chilli Pipers with vocals by Laura Dougan

23) Well, she dressed in the dark and she whispered "Amen"
From Galway to Graceland, originally by Richard Thompson, my version by Ranald Smith & Iain MacGillivray

24) [redacted] 'drasd tha mi
Sona, Runrig. Band identified by [livejournal.com profile] speakr2customrs

25) I'm just passing time before the Ball

10) Na, na-na, nana-nana
Hey Jude/The Mason's Apron, Red Hot Chilli Pipers

Hey Jude did occur to me as a possibility, but I decided, as best I can recall now, that that would have been "Na, na-na, nanana-na".

I hadn't, although I think I might have heard some of them...
