Maybe I'm missing the problem, but why not do it like this?

In[1]:= Needs["PlotLegends`"]

In[2]:= a = ListPlot[Table[{x, Sin[x]}, {x, 1, 5}], Mesh -> All,

Joined -> True, PlotStyle -> {Red}]; (* example list 1 *)

In[3]:= b = ListPlot[Table[{x, x^Sin[x]}, {x, 1, 5}], Mesh -> All,

Joined -> True, PlotStyle -> {Blue}]; (* example list 2 *)

In[4]:= l = {{Graphics[{Red, Thick, Line[{{0.05, .7}, {0.25, .7}}]}],

"Sin[x]"}, {Graphics[{Blue, Thick,

Line[{{0.05, .7}, {0.25, .7}}]}], "x^Sin[x]"}}; (* example legend *)

In[5]:= ShowLegend[

Show[a, b, PlotRange -> All], {legndB, LegendPosition -> {.2, .3},

LegendSize -> {.62, .3}}] (* show them all together *)

Normally, I would do this in a single line rather than five, but I've

broken it apart here for the sake of readability.

Hope that helps.
