It’s another CONTEST!

But! You don’t win anything tangible! Just my undying love forever and ever.

You guys, SERIOUSLY. Please help me. I need you to inform me of every single song, phrase, quote or whatever that contains the word “world” in it. It’s for a super top secret project and I would be indebted to you forever.

FOREVER. We are the world, man.

    Welcome to my brain…scary.

    I’ll stop the world & melt with you.
    It’s your world, we’re just livin’ in it.
    Roam around the world.
    Mad world
    World shut your mouth.
    Everybody wants to rule the world.
    It’s a small world after all.
    World keep on turning.
    It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
    …and the world will live as one.
    what’s going on in your world?
    I’m on top of the world looking down on creation.
    rock my world
    joy to the world
    part of your world
    stop the world – i wanna get off
    That I can change the world…I would be the sunlight in your universe.
    a whole new world
    ooh, baby baby it’s a wild world.

    Okay I’m going to stop now. ;)

    And New Order’s “World in Motion” which was England’s official song for the 1990 World Cup. If you’re looking for a super-extra dose of world all over the place.

    Extra added bonus: it always makes me wish I were English and, perhaps even stranger, a soccer fan.

    I think Eminem’s Lose Yourself has the word World in it. Also, a song by the Strokes, but I can’t think of the darn name!! (sorry that I am too lazy to actually do a net search to figure out if I’m right or not!!).
