Back to the lyrics this week...name the band and the song:

line, or will you catch him on
the rebound?
3. Watching every motion in this
foolish lover's game

4. You make the sun shine
brighter than Doris Day
5. Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dream, red,
gold and green
6. They threw an American flag in our face
7. When I'm dancing close to her, I can smell the chemicals
8. She told me to come but I was already there
9. Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
10. It belongs to them, let’s give it back 
11. Everything you do is quite angelicate 
12. Rolling like thunder under the covers
13. I don't know what you expect staring into the TV set

I thought 5. was Culture Club, Karma Cameleon (sp?)

10. is that band from Australia and that song is about giving the land back to the natives, but I can't for the life of me remember what the name.

15. was a Molly Ringwald movie, Pretty in Pink. The band is OMD, song If You Leave

That's all I can get.

When everyone posts the titles and artists, I can start singing the songs. I just can't do it in reverse.

Mad props to everyone else who is good at this for easing my brain that knows it should know these lyrics!
