Kind of a song name game

I've had this idea for quite a long time now but could never start a new thread I know it's just one of the post-number-boosting tricks but still imo it can be fun I've seen it somewhere here already so I don't want to copy that thing competely; besides, I guess you all are too big music fans and it would be too easy for you just to try and find a song title starting with a certain letter . Maybe it would be a bit harder if the task was to find a song title with certain word (not necessarily the last word of the previous title). Naturally, it means that song titles consisting of one word can't be mentioned, while songs with long titles are more than welcome

Like for example:

I say: "Quit playing games (with my heart)" by Backstreet Boys (yeah, come on, feel free to laugh at my examples :rollani:p)
You can name any song title containing any of these words.
I choose 'my' and say: "My prerogative" by Britney Spears

(... hope all vomiturition has been successfully suppressed by now and I can continue )

then, I honestly doubt anybody else ever sang about prerogative so the next person can use the word 'my' again

well, hope you get the basic idea (it's not too difficult, is it?) and we can get it started. Not sure if it actually will work but I guess it's worth trying

and some more things:
- the only language of this game is English (saying it just in case, it must be clear enough)
- avoid mentioning songs that have already been mentioned by somebody else. We know music better than that, don't we?

and I also suggest that if nobody can find a song with given words for a certain period of time (let it be 48h), anybody else is free to suggest a new song.

so, the opening song is

"First Day Of My Life" by The Rasmus
imo, a very easy one to start with

damn that's difficult (dont want to use either the or than...) guess we should introduce one more rule, like it's allowed to use 'tough' instead of 'tougher' and 'sing' instead of 'sings' etc. will it be ok?
