I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

Okay, the 20 songs meme thingy.

20 tracks pulled into my winamp playlist, and randomized. Grab a chunk of the vocals, post those vocals. I was going to grab translations for non-English lyrics but some of them are, literally, untranslatable, so these are all in native tongue and/or native gibberish.
Besides, there is at least one person on my friends list ABLE TO READ ANY ONE OF THESE TONGUES. It is possible that not all of these are sung, for I have ripped most of my soundtracks.

1. If there was ever a soul to save, it must be mine, it must be mine.
2. Nil blu de pinito de blu, delice de canto lazzu
3. and we all say 'oh well, I never- was there ever--
4. and images that may be real, may be illusion, keep flashing off and on
5. samenu nemuri ni ochite mo obieru koto wa nai kara
6. Andy, it's such a lonely fight. Don't make it any harder than it might be
7. I took you to the ocean and we had some Blue Hawaiis by the beach
8. in a private detective overcoat, wearing dead man's shoes
9. I don't care if you don't want me, 'cos you're mine mine mine
10. I can show a smile- it's not hard to do- I can find the strength to hold on
11. people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
12. Isto i dur i chuiyl i ngelaidh dagrar
13. Cheli venco deho- malio
14. I got my heart but my heart's no good, and you're the only one that's understood
15. like a slap on my ass by a lipstick-kissed elbow glove
16. ride like a demon from Kether to Malkuth
18. For our love is such pain and such pleasure that I'll treasure 'till I die
19. I bend and stretch and ply my trade/ making people all afraid
20. Don't you threaten me, son/ you got a lotta gall!

Now your job is to guess at what these song-lyrics come from.

    I do. However, I think the answer to making this happen is roughly my approach to encouraging it: simply not voicing the racist bullshit that you…
