The Theme Meme

So.. I realized I hadn't posted in a dog's year, and that I probably should do that, but I don't really have much content-worthiness to post. So I figured I'd post *something*, but I haven't seen any memes that really grabbed me lately (well, and that worked out well enough for me to post in my own LJ, although takhisis had one of the "grab the nearest book" ones earlier today. But my nearest book let me down).

Aaanywho, I decided instead to sorta revive one of the older memes that I've used I think twice before and that I really liked, but this time with a bit of a twist: I'm going to do the lyrics meme, which before you listed lyrics from a song and the readers would try to name the songs. But this time, I'm going to instead give lyrics from *theme* and other similar songs from Back In My Youth (damn whippersnappers), and you get to name the show/movie/whatever they're from. Sound fun? There's another theme running throughout these as well, that you might pick up on. Anyhow, put your responses in the comments, and as they're correctly guessed I'll edit them in, along with who guessed 'em first. Actually, I decided I'll just italicize the ones that are guessed and put who guessed them, but not put the answers until a later posting, so that people can still play along before they read the comments.

And yes, yes, some of these are really cheesy and fairly embarrassing, but hey, it should be fun! ... and embarrassing.

Notes:

Okay, #2 is really brief, I realize, but giving more would totally give it away... and this is one of those things where if you know it, believe me, you'll know it.

The blank in #5 is from the name of the series, so I just kinda... skipped over it.
Because dude.

And as sorta mentioned, some of them aren't exactly theme songs, but they're songs from... whatever that stuck in my head for whatever reason. Damnit, I'm the one adapting the meme, so I get to set the rules as I see fit!

Wow, that was quick! And not the one I thought would be nabbed first, but one of my own favorites. ^^ Gotta love Bright Eyes...

Oh, and I re-thought how I'm gonna do this... as mentioned above, I put that one in italics to mark it as guessed, and put your name by it, but didn't mention the movie just yet. I'll do that later on.

Wow, that was quick!

Normally I never see this kind of post until I get home from work, when everything has already been answered.

But I'm having a hard time concentrating at work today.

Gotta love Bright Eyes...

I still have the Art Garfunkel Fate for Breakfast tape somewhere.
I sang along to that song a lot.

(tries to concentrate again)

#2 is transformers, of course.

I feel like I should know more of these, they're *right there* in my brain.

Well, you were beaten to the punch on two of them, but that's still pretty impressive. Apparently we had similar tastes, scarily enough. ;) I gave you credit on #9, although you didn't name where it was from.

Heh. Now that I recognize it, it was from Transformers the Animated Movie ;)

I guess that's all I got, though.

Right! Also later than others, but hey, you still knew 'em. ;) (And I was slow about getting on and editing them in, sorry.)
