Comments & Submittor Name
Nat King Cole L-O-V-E L-O-V-E L is for the way you look at me O is for the only one I see V is very, very extraordinary E is even more than anyone that you adore can - Peter
Natasha Bedingfield Angel Angel A-N-G-E-L, A-N-G-E-L (right at beginning) - Taylor
National Anthems Het Wilhemus Wilem van Nassov (Origial version) Willem van Nazzov (Compemorary version) This song is what is called an acrostic, this name is spelt out by the the intitials of the fifteen stanzas. It is rather neet because the acronomy bears a cositant realtion to pronunciation, the phrase is spelt out how it is pronounced and none of the lines begin with a silent letter. There is also an Angophone version, spelling out William of Nassau, while still none of the lines begin with a siltent letter, the acromomy is clearly based too much based on spelling, the ninth stanza stars with f rather than v despite the fact the the consonant in 'of' (I mean, how it is pronounced, not how it is spellt) is really a 'v' rather than 'f'. - Feurzeug
Neil Diamond Forgotten F-O-R-GO-T-T-E-N Don't wanna be F-O-R-GO-T-T-E-N - Kathy

New Kids On The Block Games DONINIE WAHLBERG Donnie was quite self-absorbed back in the day but we New Kids fans still love the big lug. - Celeste
Nicola Roberts Beat of My Drum Love  - Silvio Tobias
No Doubt Staring problem Staring S-T-A-R-I-N-G, I can't stop staring - Kiran

The Notorious B.I.G. Going Back To Cali big, biggie, notorious Spell my name right, B-I, Double-G, I-E [and then later in the song] It's the N-O, T-O, R-I, O-U-S [and still later] People start to flash 818's, 213's, 313's, B-I-G - Candy Welty
