...ok, I got nothing. We're about forever months late and life has been cheeky and let's see what we have here and maybe 2015 will be better. Sorry everyone...

1. Fun with lyrics! Name the song and the artist:
Like a song of love that clings to me,
How the thought of you does things to me.
Never before
Has someone been more...

It was almost as bad as 'Kingdom of the Spiders', which only 'wins' because of, well, spiders. *shudders*" - [livejournal.com profile] germankitty

Correct Answer: "Unstoppable"

"This crap movie had no hope of ending well. Either the good guys fail horrifically or it's boring as the runaway train just slowly comes to a stop. There was literally no other choices for the writer than to end it poorly." - [livejournal.com profile] mark_laura
