Musical Monday #80

Welcome to the 80th edition of Musical Monday, the weekly quiz that Soccer Dad and I alternate hosting. As always, the challenge is to identify the title and artist of each song quote below, as well as the common theme of the entire set of songs.

There's a single theme today, though as usual, there may be some additional connections or similarities between consecutive songs:

1) "Meeting a man from the motor trade"
2) "Indiana's early morning dew"
3) "Tension was running high at my high school"
4) "I started to believe that I was born at seventeen"
5) "And looked into the empty faces of the people of the night"
6) "Watergate does not bother me"
7) "One and one is two, six and two is eight"
8) "Coming out the woodwork, through the open door"
9) "A discouraging word"
10) "Listen close to the guitar man"
11) "Watch the parking meters"
12) "I got elastic bands keepin' my shoes on"
13) "A requiem was never sung, no elegy was read"
14) "I'm in no hurry baby, time can wait"
15) "I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone"
16) "I'll play the game and pretend"
17) "Times have changed and times are strange"
18) "Tryin' to love me baby, love some other man too"
19) "I'll give you jewelry, money too"
20) "Take that look of worry, I'm an ordinary man"
21) "I can feel your heartbeat faster"
22) "I'll show you sweet delight"
23) "Life is old there, older than the trees"
24) "You take a trip to the city lights"
25) "The millions of faces, but still I'm alone"
26) "I could smell the same deep green of summer"
27) "Come down off your throne"
28) "On land or sea or foam"
29) "Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
30) "I've got no time for trivialities"
31) "Where the lovelight gleams"
32) "Am I in my cabin dreaming?"
33) "Traveling where the Westerly winds can fly"
34) "Belief over misery, I've seen the enemy"
35) "And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain"
36) "Take me to your heart, feel me in your bones"
37) "I'll milk those cows, feed the chickens and the horses"
38) "Snow is cold, rain is wet"

Good luck and enjoy!

Is 2 "Back home again in Indiana"?

5) At first I was going to write "Self-control," but it's New York's not my home, by Jim Croce
6) Sweet Home Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I'd guess states, but that was MM #50.

Given 22 (Thanks Clayton) and what Elie wrote, "... there may be some additional connections or similarities between consecutive songs," I think that 21 is:
Take me home tonight, Eddie Money with Ronnie Spector.

Try again on #2 - no other help yet!

Since some of the songs have states in them, might "My old Kentucky home" be included?

17. Mama, I'm Coming Home, Ozzy Osbourne

I'm pretty sure the lyric from #14 has been used before, but I don't know what the song is.

Boy it got quiet around here! Hope you're still working these. Of the remaining unidentified songs, I especially look for someone to get #s 2 and 14.
