Musical Monday #36

Welcome to the 36th edition of Musical Monday, the weekly quiz that Soccer Dad and I alternate hosting. Or to be exact, this week's MM is one of our periodic collaborations, so credit due to SD for co-creation of the following.

As always, identify songs' artists and titles, as well as the common theme, topic, or characteristic that applies to the entire set of songs.

1) "Golden living dreams of visions"
2) "Time doesn't wait for me, it keeps on rollin'"
3) "You're a bluebird on a telegraph line"
4) "Now I'm fallin' from her skies"
5) "At night he becomes a bartender"
6) "But your hand's wet with sweat, and your head needs a rest"
7) "Oh, don't ask why!"
8) "It’s driving me mad, it’s driving me mad"
9) "With the butler and the maid and the servants three"
10)"I pound on the windows like a bee inside a jar"
11)"The boats were waiting at the Battery"
12)"Feeding pigeons on a limb"
13)"You give back your ring to me, and I will set you free"
14)"It's something in my eyes, you know it happens every time"
15)"Tell her to make me a cambric shirt"
16)"Some say he farmed his best in younger years"
17)"Shadows on the hills sketch the trees and the daffodils"
18)"From the early, early mornin' 'til the early, early nights"
19)"I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie"
20)"I know between the two of us, her heart we can steal" (Note: Looking for a specific version of this song)
21)"Them boys in their high heels"
22)"Cook county sheriff Richard Ogleby asked King to call off the march"
23)"Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?"
24)"Am I in my cabin dreaming, or are you really scheming?"

Good luck and enjoy!

I couldn't figure out how "Good Golly Miss Molly" fit the theme. Now that somebody supplied the answer, I understand.

Speaking of, I've realized that I got that title slightly wrong, and it's bugging me. It should actually be "Devil With A Blue Dress On / Good Golly Miss Molly"...

Great job, Lel, Clayton, SS, and Yitzchak, and thanks again to co-creator Soccer Dad! The topic was close to the one suggested by LEL, but to be exact, it was songs with multiple titles. Thus, some of these (e.g., #s 1-3) are more properly multi-song medleys than subtitled single songs, but in all cases, these songs are listed on their respective albums as one track with two titles. Conversely, we did not include examples like Queen's "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions", since they are shown on the album as separate tracks with separate lengths, even though DJs invariably tend to play them together.

The complete list of answers:
1) “Golden living dreams of visions”
- Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, The 5th Dimension
2) "Time doesn't wait for me, it keeps on rollin' "
- Foreplay/Long Time, Boston
3) "You're a bluebird on a telegraph line"
- Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding, Elton John
4) " Now I'm fallin' from her skies"

- Movin Out / Anthony's Song, Billy Joel
6) "But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest"
- Fooling Yourself / The Angry Young Man, Styx
7) "Oh, don't ask why"
- Alabama Song / Whisky Bar, Doors
8) "It’s driving me mad, it’s driving me mad"
- I Want You / She's So Heavy, The Beatles
9) " With the butler and the maid and the servants three"
- Living Loving Maid / She's Just a Woman, Led Zeppelin
10) "I pound on the windows like a bee inside a jar"
