Update to past entry pending. It looks like everyone's doing opening Lyrics... this isn't just shuffle from my private library but it's a smattering of various friends' playlists on Spotify.
Title omitted when it appears. -- Song goes Italicized once Guessed.

1. I'm livin' in that 21st Century, Doin' somethin' mean to it.
2. Love, love, is a verb, love is a doing word, fearless on my breath.
3. Guess this means you're sorry, you're standing at my door

4. Just shoot for the stars, if it feels right.
5. Can I get a ... do you want more? Cookin' raw with the Brooklyn boy
6. One, two, three, four, uno, dos, tres, quatro.
7. Reach out and touch me! Your own ...

8. I got shivers when you touch my face.
9. We got tom-toms over here bigger than a monster!
10. Baby, do you understand now? Sometimes I feel a little mad.
11. Here's a little somethin' 'bout a n*gga like me, never shoulda' been let out the penitentiary.
12. ... an evening star shines down on you.
13. You oughta know, tonight is the night to let it go.
14. Rows and flows of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air.
15. Seven o'clock in the morning and the rays from the sun wakes me.

Okay, (14) is "Clouds". I don't know who it's by, but it's probably, like, Carole King or Joni Mitchell or someone like that.

Well done. Listening to the Cash version now, offhand it doesn't work anywhere near as well as the Hurt cover.

2 is Teardrop by Massive Attack. 14 is Both Sides Now, which has several versions, but I expect it's either Joni Mitchell or Judy Collins.

Yes to both However the version of "Both Sides Now" I have is by a much lesser known artist -- her name is Hayley Westenra.... I wholeheartedly recommend her stuff.

6 is Calle Ocho by a couple different people- I heard it last by Pitbull.

9 is Massive Attack (not the band) by Nicki Minaj.

...Of course I get the DC songs.

Number five is Numb/Encore. Thank you for the lyric - I recognized it by rhythm... and always wondered what the actual words said were.

Not like the lyric makes a ton of sense, but yes, one of the best uses of Linkin park ever.
