My admiration ever deepens. Like a well dug 'ole. Credit is being given where it's due!

PS: I expect your l'il bro to get at least one, or someone will have to have a strong word in his shell-like...

I'm probably entirely wrong, but is number 3 Spoonman by Soundgarden?

Edit: flippin eck, I recognise 4 as well but I can't think. Is it an Alanis Morisette? Sounds like something from my youth...

Spoonman indeed, but the Morrisoid? Pah! (sort of, but not really, close)

Ooh, 4 is Tori Amos. Possibly Crucify, or China?

Well, I knew it was female and angsty... :D

I'm bloody annoyed too cos I was thinking Tori Amos as well. Haven't listened to the scary Alanis for years.

Edit: Tear In Your Hand? (I so haven't just been sitting here madly singing every Tori Amos song I can remember).
