Musical Monday #88

Welcome to the 88th 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. Extra credit this time to the first to identify the reason I chose this theme!

There's just one theme today, though there is somewhat of an order to subsets of songs that fit it in slightly different ways.

1) "The smiles returning to the faces"
2) "A suitcase and trunk"
3) "Can you feel it now that spring has come?"
4) "But you misread my meaning when I met you"
5) "Looking at the barrel of an Armalite"
6) "But don't forget that love's a game"
7) "I cried when she said, 'I don't feel the same way'"
8) "Loneliness is a coat you wear"
9) "And though I lose a friend, in the end you will know"
10) "Too much wine and too much song"
11) "My girl and me, we will stay right by the sea"
12) "Like an old dusty road, I get weary from the load"
13) "When you're on a holiday, you can't find the words to say"
14) "So I'm stuck here watching TV"
15) "Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside"
16) "In my eyes indisposed, in disguise as no one knows"
17) "Everybody's laughing, everybody's happy"
18) "Want you to know, I'm a rainbow too now"
19) "Where is my spirit? I'm nowhere near it"
20) "A gigantic nuclear furnace"
21) "Took the high dive into your brain"
22) "So I can watch you live and breathe your storylines"
23) "Thank you for that smile upon your face"
24) "And I can't sail my yacht, he's taken everything I've got" (no, this isn't by Bernie Madoff)
25) "No more falsehoods or derisions"
26) "Now don't want you back for the weekend"
27) "It's the morning and just we two"
28) "I'm so proud to know that she is mine"
29) "And this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away"
30) "I'd give to you a day just like today"
31) "Everybody's hustlin' just to have a little scene"
32) "Because you came to my rescue"
33) "When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken"
34) "We'll walk barefoot on life's gravel together"
35) "Make me feel fine when I'm feelin' wrongly down"
36) "He was just a hired hand"
37) "Only change will bring you out of the darkness"
38) "Laden with happiness and tears"
39) "Dirty old river, must you keep rolling?"
40) "I can't believe our warlord's dead"
41) "Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me"
42) "She's been looking like a queen in a sailor's dream"

Good luck and enjoy!

10) But not too many women - Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks
30) Sunshine - John Denver
32) You are the Sunshine of my Life - Stevie Wonder
36) Tequila Sunrise - Linda Ronstadt's backup band
38) Sunrise, Sunset - from Fiddler on the Roof.

I know 4 but can't quite figure out the rest of the song. I'm pretty certain it's from the mid 70's. Is it Elton John?

Yes it is. 4) Don't let the sun go down on me - Elton John

As to the theme, I'll leave it as an exercise.

There's a song called Blister in the Sun. I only know a few lines, though, and none of them are listed.

27 - Sunshine Of Your Love - Cream
40 - Indian Sunset - Elton John

I think #9, "I'll Follow the Sun" is by The Beatles and #23, "Sunny" is by Bobby Hebb (unless you want the 70s disco version, which I don't know for sure but am guessing is by Silver Convention).

Regarding 30. John Denver wrote the music for a TV Movie of that name. It was about a young woman dying of cancer. The other hit (also written by Denver) was sung by the lead actor. Who was the lead actor, and what role is he more famous for? (At least among folks who are into cult films.)

This is a great theme, but unfortunately I'm looking out the window at 3 inches of snow...

I haven't spotted it, but I'd imagine Sun King might be on there as well.

Great job, Soccer Dad, Gail, TRN, SJ, Clayton, Laura, ral315, and Yitzchak! Together, you ID'ed 27 out of 42 songs, and TRN was the first to state the theme, which was Sun-related song titles, in honor of the once-in-28-years recital of Bircas Hachamah last week.
