Lyrics quiz

It has been a while since I posted one of these.

Below are 10 lyrics from songs. For each one, if you know the artist and song title, post them in your comment.

  1. Now he never leaves the house looking less than presidential as he studies all the bridges for their suicide potential
  2. There were lots of beautiful new technologies, beautiful lies; I was impressed by it...
  3. We said that we were fine, but the truth never rhymes
  4. And don't try to enchant me with your manner of dress, 'cause a monkey in silk is a monkey no less.
  5. I want to do my PhD on Sonic Youth
  6. I can hypnotise a pancake, I can levitate the Pope
  7. She spoke in dialect I could not understand
  8. I bought a ticket to hell when I met up with you
  9. Everything's horrid in Hell dear, wishing to hell you were here
  10. You're not that clumsy and the stairs aren't so high
