Musical Monday 21
Welcome to the 21st edition of Musical Monday, the weekly quiz that Soccer Dad and I alternate hosting. Or usually alternate - as I mentioned last week, we're swapping turns this and next week, so I'm here today, and Soccer Dad will cover #22 on 11/26 as well as #23 the following week.
For each numbered song quote below, identify the title and artist, as well as the common theme of the set of songs. Breaks between groups of songs are meaningful. As a bit of a hint (or an extra something to guess): one of last week's songs appears on today's quiz as well, though with a different quote of course. But that particular song is significant for a reason beyond the theme of either quiz.
With that, here goes:
1) "I'm a loser, what a joker"
2) "What is it we dream about? What brings on a sigh?"
3) "If you don't like it, you can't send it back"
4) "Obie said he was making sure"
5) "Drop a dime in the box, play a song about New Orleans"
6) "Not too particular, not too precise"
7) "Thirty-six hours rolling in pain"
8) "If only you were here, you'd wash away my tears"
9) "Maid Marian on her tiptoe feet"
10) "We were at a party, his ear lobe fell in the dip"
11) "They can't play baseball, they don't wear sweaters"
12) "Always no sometimes think it's me"
13) "I should have quit you baby, such a long time ago"
14) "The wind in the willow played love's sweet melody"
15) "Take it for what it's worth, throw the rest into the sun"
16) "He was pushing on through the shortening miles that ran down to the depot"
17) "I said 'Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take?' "
18) "I open that door so slowly, take a peek up north and south"
19) "It’s a long way down to the place where we started from"
20) "When it becomes too much you'll shout aloud"
21) "Go to see her with her hair hung down, ain't no finer girl in town"
22) "Can you catch it on your tonsils?"
23) "Dead kings, many things I can't define"
24) "Without no seams nor needlework"
25) "A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night"
26) "People passin' by just look at my baby"
27) "Lady of the house wondering where its gonna' stop"
28) "Now I'm falling from her skies"
Enjoy and good luck!
