Thanks to the respondents on the song lyrics, including Stuart Johnson by email. Herewith, the answers, along with who got them right, and... the winner ;)
I only just noticed there are two number 8s too! Ha!

1. Do you have another opinion? - The Pixies, Mr Grieves ([ profile] bizza, Stu by email)
2. ...She said that you gave it to her/ That night that you planned to go clear/ Did you ever go clear? - Leonard Cohen, Famous Blue Raincoat ([ profile] kineticfactory, [ profile] bizza)
3. Listening to you reminds me of a motor's endless drone, and how the deaf are so damn lucky - Jim O'Rourke, Memory Lame (tsk, tsk)
4. The boy said "Dad they're going to take me to task/ but I'll be back by Christmas" - Elvis Costello, Shipbuilding {covered famously by Robert Wyatt, and lots of others of course} ([ profile] ninebelow)
5. ...We danced the hora/ till we vomited blood... - A Silver Mt Zion, Movie (Never Made) ([ profile] kineticfactory)
6. "Tu t'appelles comment?" - "Melody" - "Melody comment?" - Serge Gainsbourg, Melody or Cargo Culte ([ profile] kineticfactory (guessed but close enough), Stu by email)
7. So hard to believe that he only 19 - Hrvatski, vatstep dsp (aka Kid 606, catstep/my kitten/catnap (vatstep dsp remix by Hrvatski) (tsk, nobody knew this either)
8.1 Without a universal law there is no gravity/ without gravity there is no atmosphere/ without an atmosphere there is no chance at life/ and with no chance at life... I don't exist - 13 & God, Soft Atlas (surprised nobody knew this)
8.2 With their nine inch nails and little fascists panties tucked inside the heart of every nice girl - Tori Amos, Precious Things ([ profile] bizza)
9. We got a lot to talk about/ We got a lot to try out - The Clouds, Renee's Problems {where are all the Clouds fans? *sigh*)
10. Betty came by on her way/ said she has a word to say/ about things today/ and fallen leaves - Nick Drake, River Man ([ profile] bizza had the right artist but wrong song, well done though)
11. Born of the river/ Born of its ever-changing, never-changing murky water - Nick Cave, Saint Huck (Stu by email)
12. Oh yeah. The world's turned upside down/ Jimmy Finn is out - Talk Talk, The Rainbow (a hard one, but some people should know this)
13. ...and it's the same the whole world 'round. The hurt I see helps to compound, that... - XTC, Dear God (obviously I made this excerpt too difficult! tsk, tsk)

So there you go. [ profile] kineticfactory got 3, one of which was a good guess. [ profile] bizza got 4, one of which was slightly wrong... So I declare [ profile] bizza the winner! What would you like to have won, Tim? ;)

I don't think I've ever heard 13 & God...I'm pissed I didn't get the XTC! The Clouds song - I don't think I know it? Is it on an EP?

I knew I had the Nick Drake song wrong! I wasn't sure of the song, but I kind of heard big orchestral swells behind Nick singing those lyrics, and guessed.

Prize! Hmm. Make me a mix-CD?

Yeah, 13 & God = Themselves (Dose One etc, of Anticon) and the Notwist, teaming up for an alt.hip-hop/indietronic supergeekfest. All good.
Haha re XTC ;)

The Clouds song is from their first EP, usually known as the "Cloud Factory" EP. Clearly you do need a mix CD from me!

So all I need is an address... I thought I had your email but it seems I don't. I still think I do somewhere, but can you give me a hint or something? Or better, you can email me if you know my email address (a couple are guessable from my websites - the raven one at either my band or my personal domain, or the Utility Fog one at FBi...)
