(19) - Do I get extra geek points for the fact that it's also covered by Common Rotation on "The Big Fear"? *snuggles Adam Busch*

7. My joy would be complete dear, if you were only here...

But, still, I keep your hand as a precious souvenir.
The night you died I cut it off; I really don't know why,
For now, each time I kiss it I get bloodstains on my tie.
I'm sorry now I killed you, for our love was something fine--
Until they come and get me, I shall hold your hand in mine!

(!) That's Tom Lehrer, "I Hold Your Hand In Mine." *love*

#3 is from the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack.

It's Meg singing to Christine, she's just returned from her first trip to the Phantom's lair.

"Where in the world have you been hiding? Really you were perfect
I only wish I knew your secret
Who is this new tutor?"

But I have no idea what the name of the song is. Hee.
