cogitation = "Resurrection Shuffle"?

Gaz gets his masturbation right (er, can I rephrase that?) and urth is onto something with "B of C" -- one of the remaining 7 is in there.

Determination?
Let's get right to it.

DING DING DING! It's my obligation to say there's no humiliation in your answer.  2 down, 6 to go.

There's also "masturbation" in Green Day's "Longview."

Frink points!  But was "Longview" a Top 40 single or just a popular album track? (my '90s chart knowledge is not what it should be)

It was one of those gappers that would have charted if it had been a commercial single.

Haven't done one of these in a while...  8 words, find them in a song lyric.  6 of the songs I'm thinking of were Top 40 hits, one is a cultish obscurity for chart geeks and one was an early single that didn't chart for a rock pioneer.

botheration
determination (Ball of Confusion)
cogitation
masturbation (Give Peace a Chance)
salutations
preservation
investigation
accusations


last chance on the above -- I'll post answers if no one bites today.

You did a good job of stumping us on these, Mike!  I know I'll kick myself on a few of them ...

accusations = Police, "Don't Stand So Close to Me"

And it's not frink-point-worthy, but "preservation" appears in a deep Jefferson Starship album cut from 1984's Nuclear Furniture: "Showdown," with a Grace line about "self-preservation, the original greed."

Right on the Police -- and you're knocking on the door of "preservation" with that hyphenated word....

OK kids, time for the big reveal:

botheration - "Too Much Monkey Business", Chuck Berry (early single that amazingly never charted Pop).

determination - "Ball of Confusion", Tempts (yay urth!)

cogitation - "Nikki Hoeky", PJ Proby, a beloved-by-chart-geeks regional hit from '67; I was wrong, it actually did get to #23.

masturbation - "Give Peace a Chance", Plastic Ono Lennon (yay gaz!)

salutations - "Life is a Rock", Reunion ("friends and Romans, salutations/Brenda and the Tabulations")

preservation - "Young Hearts Run Free", Candi Staton ("self-preservation is what's really goin' on today")

investigation - "Me & Julio", Paul Simon

accusations - "Don't stand So Close...", Police (yay gaz again!)

Oh damn, I should've got that; I've used that quote before.
