Hungry Children Will Tell Him About His Service and Good Food

A slight change from now on in Lost in Google Translation, the game that scrambles song lyrics using Google Translate: it seems that Google`s getting better at this, and even though I garble lyrics through seven languages, certain key phrases pop up unchanged, and thus are giveaways. So from now on, on occassion if a phrase appears directly as in the title, or more or less directly so, I'll scratch it out. You'll be able to see that I've done this, because I'll replace the text in question with Xxxxxxx.

This week's and next week's both have themes: they are both taken from two different VH1 countdowns - which means there's a stylistic or era similarity between them.
#1 It was morning. The sun is up to the last. Last night was shaking quite large. After teaching my cat scratch my skin, otherwise the error? Hungry children will tell him about his service and good food. Add to a new place. I went here when I can: If you want to make me the storm here: If you want to make the storm.
#2 Ah, yes, teachers, and stop screaming Sir, you do not see? I do not want to be stupid in this area. You may be hell, but I'm fine after school teacher should be notified. I lost my house all the education But I'm not good enough then. Of course the bad bad bad I'm xxxxxxxxxx Bad, Bad, I feel I'm xxxxxxxxxx
#3 All the coast of Lake Geneva in Montreux to record our phone. We do not have much time Frank Zappa and his mother better than the madman with a gun in the water, earth, fire, smoke, xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx.
Actually I'm full of crap. Number two wasn't on the VH1 list. But it could have been. Lots of x's, eh? Check the white space below for answers.

#1 "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions.

It's early morning. The sun comes out. Last night was shaking and pretty loud. My cat is purring and scratches my skin, so what is wrong with another sin? The bitch is hungry. She needs to tell, so give her inches and feed her well. More days to come, new places to go. I've got to leave: it's time for a show. Here I am: rock you like a hurricane. Here I am: rock you like a hurricane.

#2 "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen.
http://www.ascap.com/ace/search.cfm?requesttimeout=300&mode=results&searchstr=380257212&search_in=i&search_type=exact&search_det=t,s,w,p,b,v&results_pp=30&start=1

Oh yes, teacher, stop that screaming. Teacher, don't you see? I don't want to be an uptown fool. Maybe I should go to hell, but I am doing well. Teacher needs to see me after school. I think of all the education that I've missed, but then my homework was never quite like this. Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad. I'm hot for teacher. I've got it bad, so bad. I'm hot for teacher.

#3 "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple.
http://www.ascap.com/ace/search.cfm?requesttimeout=300&mode=results&searchstr=490306826&search_in=i&search_type=exact&search_det=t,s,w,p,b,v&results_pp=30&start=1

We all came out to Montreux on the Lake Geneva shoreline to make records with a mobile. We didn't have much time. Frank Zappa and the Mothers were at the best place around, but some stupid with a flare gun burned the place to the ground. Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky. Smoke on the water.
