dull day, on with the music memes

There's a nice ipodomancy variant doing the rounds where you replace all the track titles with cryptic-crossword style clues, and people have to guess what's what. There's a couple of easy ones in here, but many are willfully obscure ... blame the ipod, I told you it was a sadist:

Ta very much
spiritual passion
flat wooden squares within the law
seeing things (the things you see)
killing the ringing things
a tasty chocolate snack bar
that one about an unnecessarily large vehicle
three options either way
it'll be soon, maybe tomorrow
initial peck causes most injury
first sort of grease
millennial mirrorball dance
too high up
murder that stripey british mammal
EDIT: Scroll down the comments to see the answers.

More music: percyprune wanted to know what 7 tracks I'm digging at the moment. Inflation -- last time I did this it was 5ongs!

hustler groove - apollo 440
where is the what if the what is the why - moloko
drunk country - midfield general
any second now (voices) - depeche mode
good day - the dresden dolls
farewell angelina - joan baez
sunday morning - strawberry switchblade

Hmm, looking at that, that's a graduated tint, from growl to lilt. Maybe I should have made it an octave.

... and while I was checking that I got the right title for Any second now (I've been listening to it over and over on vinyl -- pleasant but uninformative) I found a stupid web quiz that tells you what Depeche Mode album you are:

Take the quiz: "Which Depeche Mode album are you?"

You are truly an amazing specimen. You're one of the greatest albums of all time according to RollingStone. Every song on you is perfection, and while there are those who say to you, "look, make up your mind: either you want to dance or you want to sulk, you can't have it both ways!" you resolutely ignore them in your determination to do both.

I feel cleansed now.
