Musical Monday #167
Welcome to the 167th edition of Musical Monday, with the challenge, as always, to identify the title and artist of each song quote below, as well as the common theme of the entire set of songs.
It's a single theme today, though #24 bends the rules a bit. Could have probably found several more good examples, but after three weeks, I wanted to get this posted today. Feel free, as always, to add bonus lyrics of your own!
