Here is the second installment of the "What's on My MP-3 Player?" game. This time, all songs begin with the letter B or C. Here are your clues:

- All songs are in alphabetical order
- the first 14 begin with B; the last 5 begin with C
- in general, these are songs from popular artists (although many are NOT number one hits)
- the time frame ranges from the 60s to the 90s (with a few exceptions)
- the name of the song will not appear in the lyrics given

Good luck!

These are probably the easy ones, but by the time I got to the previous thread, all the ones I recognized had been taken, so I'm taking advantage of being early here.11) "Remember how you made me crazy? Remember how I made you scream?"Boys of Summer (Don Henley)
18) "All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek"Come Dancing (The Kinks)

Enginerd made me realize that #12 is Hole's Boys On The Radio.

Also, I thought the correct to #17 was "and I swear that I don't have a gun," not "when."
