The Fifteenth Groanin' Jock Lyrical Challenge

Three of last week's mystery tunes were correctly identified, Neepheid and Rob each spotting two of them. Answers to that quiz are now in comments on that post.

Here are this week's lyrics for you to identify - name the artist and song based on the lyrical snippet. No Googling!

1: Burn all the candles out, make a wish but not aloud.

2: We scratch our eternal itch, a 20th Century bitch.

3: And the spectres in the masonry remind us of the things that might have been.

4: You know that I would love to see you in that dress.

5: The camera's here and the microphones and they wanna know.

4 is Maximo Park, "Apply Some Pressure"

2 is Radiohead, "My Iron Lung"

Looks like two for me again this time, can't place the other three.
