Lyrics challenge for old people... No Googling! Just be old, and then it's easy!
1. That ain't why I stayed
2. I mean that most sincerely
3. Just like before the accident
4. So I had to self destruct
5. It's too late to stop now
6. I could talk all night
7. I really meant I was sorry
8. All I see turns to brown
9. What's the matter with you, boy?
10. Fall, mountains
( I will not be available to moderate for the next few hours, but don't worry - these are all super obvious and I know you can do it )

Dangit, I cannot extract #4 from my mental database.
posted by initapplette 05 November | 17:55
(I think I know them all. Yes, I'm THAT OLD but I didn't want to be a jerk and answer all of them in one go. #4 is Disco Inferno by the Trammps. Dammit now that song is stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Burn baby burn.)

Full points, essexjan and jamaro.

1: Join me in LA, Warren Zevon
7: Cold Shot, Stevie Ray Vaughan
10: If 6 was 9, Jimi Hendrix

The problem is that I'm old enough to know these but too old to remember them. Almost all of the sound familiar but I couldn't pull out the names without googling.

What octothorpe said. All of those are tantalisingly familiar, but I'll be buggered if I can place them.

Actually, the line is simply "too late to stop now." (at which point the song abruptly stops.)
Apparently there's a recently released old live album titled thusly.

And don't quote any liner notes at me, those are proven to be unauthorized.
I've recently made quite a little study of "Into the Mystic"
That song is an quite intricately constructed little Faberge egg.
