I Can't Hear You 'Cuz I'm Sitting in My Time Machine

I just downloaded a song from Yaz, a song from The Style Council, and two from The Cure. Naturally, I am now bouncing around the kitchen like a...a...a woman bouncing around the kitchen. If anyone can correctly guess the titles, I will do one (winner's choice!) of the following:

1) If my passport arrives as promised, I will post my passport picture which looks—uncanny, I say!—like the mugshot of someone who drank a lot and then was found walking backwards down the freeway at three in the morning. I'm sure you realize the steep psychological price I would be paying should you choose this option.

2) Post a short video of Lea "playing" a Barbie guitar (it was a gift from Lolo; not many options available to me there, folks) and singing that Maroon 5 ballad, the name of which I can no longer remember.

or

3) Send you a handwritten letter from I, the Nesting Ground Mistress. Said letter to include...hold onto your cargo shorts... stickers. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking Stickers, Ver? Really?!, and I'm here to tell you yes, yes dear reader, stickers. Speaking of which, remember A Call to Pens?! Come on, how fun was that? Um, rhetorical.

Pretty slim pickings there in the prize department, I'd have to agree. But is there another small blog out there running a contest I don't know about? I think not. So text, channel, ring up, or otherwise contact your inner competitor, and guess the songs already! I'll keep bouncing around the kitchen...

Okay, Lisa you are 0 for 4! Sadly, I'm not nearly as cool as your Cure and Style Council choices make me out to be...

Ms. bj, you are totally feeling my corniness on 1 of those...

Okay, ahem! Sorry I'm late. Here they are in all their obviousness:

Yaz: "Only You" (Meg says this song is not conducive to bouncing around the kitchen, but I must disagree)

Style Council: "My Ever Changing Moods (omg, I seriously love this song)

The Cure: "Lovesong" and "Just Like Heaven"
