Name That Tune - IPod shuffle style

While I was checking out the facebook this evening, an addiction for which there appears to be no cure, I discovered a friend of mine had created a quiz involving his iPod library. Following his lead, I put my ipod on shuffle and I've quoted the first line of each song. All I need is the song title and the show in which it appears. Some are easy, but I'm not going to lie, some are rather obscure, so knock yourselves out!

1. "With my wings resolutely spread, Mrs. Burnside"
2. "The sun sits low diffusing its usual glow"
3. "Child, I know the fear you’re feeling"
4. "To this we’ve come that men withhold the world from men"
5. "I went down to the tennis courts, lookin’ good in pleated shorts"
6. "Now as the sweet imbecilities tumble so lavishly onto her lap"
7. "Why can’t you be like a woman ought to be?"
8. "You called me back with a silent plea"
9. "Daddy always thought that he married beneath him"
10."You smug little men with your smug little schemes"
11. "Let's start looking alive, when we arrive it's gonna be great!"
12. "Thank the Lord Mimi Paragon’s on board!"
13. "The day we meet the way you lean against the wind"
14. "Mademoiselle, I have followed you everywhere"
15. "Hail! Hail! Hail! Hail! Hail to the man who (hail!) without whom (hail!)"
16. "When you see the shape the world is in"
17. "My life is simply great, my silverware is gold"
18. "When the sun flew in my window and crept in bed with me"
19. "Do you see that cloud up there with the number nine?"
20. "You dear attractive dewy-eyed idealist"
21. "The best kind of clothes for a protest pose is this ensemble of pantyhose"
22. "Talk to flowers right here?"
23. "Take me back where I belong"
24. "Before you half remember what her smile was like"
25. "Things may not come through the way you plan"
26. "I will never understand what I did to deserve you"
27. "I married many men –a ton of them"
28. "Staring my life in the face haunted by what could have been"
29. "That old April yearning once more is returning"
30. "I’ll bet your friends are all celebrities. That’s wonderful."
31. "I often have these miserable instincts"
32. "My days are brighter than morning air"
33. "To me this emporium is sex in memoriam"
34. "The newspapers call you the goddess of sex"
35. "Glad to see you folks. Sure is homey here."
36. "When I was young my heart was weaving in and out of romance"
37. "I remember Claude. His face was gaunt, his skin was pale"
38. "Who’s the girl who had the men all eating from her hand?"
39. "I remember the way our sainted mother would sit and croon us her lullaby"
40. "Who'd believe that we two would end up as lovers?"


"Wine francaise straight from Burgundy"
"A friend of mine was hurtin' bad, I bought that friend a beer"
