Musical Comedy Monday

The soundtrack meme was a lot of fun, so I decided to rework it a little bit. For a sequel, I decided on a little light romantic comedy, set to clever tunes. The only hang-up is that the clever tunes have to be queued up at random by your computer or iPod.

A refresh of the rules:
  1. Open your music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
  2. Put it on shuffle
  3. Press play
  4. For every question, type the song that's playing
  5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
  6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...
Herewith is one bug's result.

Opening credits – U2, “Love and Peace (or Else)”
Our hero – Duane Eddy, “Forty Miles of Bad Road”
Ms Right – ZZ Top, “Viva Las Vegas” [I guess she's a partier]
The Jerk – The Pillows, “Stalker”
The Bitch – Seatbelts, “Waltz for Zizi”
First meeting – Talking Heads, “Wild Wild Life”
Clueless girl – KC & the Sunshine Band, “Shake Your Booty” [yup - definitely a partier]
Clueless boy – Woody Herman and the Thundering Herds, “Woodchopper’s Ball”
Second meeting – U2, “City of Blinding Lights”
Happiness – Lovin’ Spoonful, “Darlin’ Companion”
The Jerk makes his move – BST, “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” [heheheh]
Quarrel – Wall of Voodoo, “Mexican Radio”
The Bitch piles on – Michael Jackson, “Get on the Floor”
All is lost – Three Dog Night, “Sure as I’m Sitting Here”
Best friends to the rescue – Edgar Winters Group, “Frankenstein”
Loose ends flying together – Squeeze, “Goodbye Girl”
Reconciled – Elvis, “I’m All Shook Up”
Happily ever after – Eric Clapton, “I Believe in Life”
Closing credits – Grateful Dead, “Eyes of the World”

Curious. Some of these would be absolutely perfect if I could switch the order around a little bit - but I can't because that's not how the game is played. So - how does your little romantic comedy sound?
