Matching Song Game

How about a little bit of fun? A variation on something that has been done in the past. A thread chain where the last word of a song name to the first word of the next (a previous version was to match the first and last letters).

So as an example:
You Oughta Know (Alanis Morissette) -> Know Your Enemy (Green Day)

Homonyms and Homophones are allowed, so whole = hole, where = wear, etc.
Single letters can be expanded to the full word, U = You (or Ewe)
The use of Google or other search engines is allowed.

If anyone posts a one word song name, then we mirror (just to confuse everyone) and the first word has to match the last word of the next (until someone mirrors again)

Example:
Come Closer (Chickenfoot) -> Closer (the Corrs) -> The Closer (VIXX, Googled!)

The Starting point:
I Want It All (Queen)

What happens when there might be an 'A' at the beginning? I'm thinking of 'World without Love' (Peter and Gordon) but I think it might be 'A world without love'

Yes, that version was prefixed by "A", but Google tells me that The Supremes did a version without the "A". So let's go with that.

What if you know the name of a song but not the band or singer ?
CAROL
Feel free to Google it (or similar)

I'm putting the artist name mostly for fun, and such that you can reuse a song if it's done by multiple artists.

Do I Wanna Know? Arctic Monkeys....I think this game is going to be very distracting!:)

Oh dear, I though that was the end of the chain as I only had "Know Your Enemy" and I do think there will be many starting with Enemy.
However, goggle turned up "Know You Now" by Amy Winehouse

Yikes, that would have been an unforced error, sorry. Although it does get the little grey cells working! "Know(ing) me, knowing you....aha!? Although now when I hear this I think of Alan Partidge, not Abba...:)
