Musical Monday #106

Welcome to the 106th 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.

If it were a couple of days ago, the obvious theme for this edition would be the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, but I'd guess by now, practically everyone has heard their share of Woodstock tunes and recollections on the radio and TV. So I went elsewhere, to a relevant, but quite a bit less obvious theme. Extra credit to whomever guesses my reason (or comes up with a better one again!) for using the theme this week.

1) "After all I'm forever in your debt"
2) "And you're afraid to let your eyes meet mine"
3) "But it's wisdom born of pain"
4) "Be back before it melts in the pan"
5) "I can sense your needs, like rain on to the seeds"
6) "Over night scenes, dinner and wine, Saturday girls"
7) "It's not so much your pretty face I see"
8) "You'd be weak as a lamb"
9) "She don't give the boys the eye"
10) "Is throw shadows at you"
11) "This is the only way that we should fly"
12) "Temptation falls in your path, no hesitation why you ask"
13) "Oh shucks, I'm just an average guy"
14) "You didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face"
15) "Yes, don't turn your back on me, baby"
16) "There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in"
17) "I can see me a tall dark stranger, giving you what you hadn't planned"
18) "Crazy laughter in another room"
19) "Pick up the pieces and go home"
20) "Sparkle someone else’s eyes"
21) "I don't want much, the good Lord's earth beneath my feet"
22) "Let’s change the mood from glad to sadness"
23) "Rising from the neon gloom, shining like a crazy moon"
24) "I look in your eyes, just like the rain"
25) "Like a country mornin', all snuggled in dew"
26) "I've been livin' on a dead-end street"
27) "Are you lonely just like me?"
28) "Sitting in a nest of bad men"
29) "When your conscience hits, you knock it back with pills"
30) "Time goes by and you're sharing an apartment"
31) "I know many fine feathered friends"
32) "Rags, the sailor's only daughter, a child of the water"
33) "There was a time when you needed someone to count on"
34) "But if they get a chance they'll end it for sure"
35) "I turn away from the wall, I stumble and fall"
36) "There's a band of gold that shines waiting"
37) "He'd give up all his comfort, sleep out in the rain"
38) "And every time it happens, it just convinces me more"
39) "Hear every thought, see every dream"
40) "With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls"
41) "I ain't gonna act politically correct"
42) "When my soul was in the lost-and-found"
43) "Never runnin' in the streets, leavin' me alone"
44) "She can make the birds sing harmony"
45) "In the government yard in trenchtown"

Good luck and enjoy!

At 8/17/09, 2:22 PM, Blogger Elie said...

Thank you!! (Actually our 24th anniversary, but we'll count one more for good luck!)

It wasn't the reason for the theme though - couldn't expect anyone (else) to know...

 
At 8/17/09, 2:24 PM, Blogger Elie said...

What do you think I am, a math major?

Umm, yes? :-)

It's actually a big mathematical debate whether "1" is a prime...

44) Ain't no woman (like the one I got) - The Four Tops

Soccer Dad, thank you for making me giggle.

Happy anniversary, Elie!

Twenty-four is one of my favorite numbers.

I hold that one is not a prime number.

35) Woman in Love - Barbara Streisand (with Barry Gibb)

Did women get the vote in 1919? That would make this year the 90th anniversary, but I don't know whether it was at this time of year.

 
At 8/17/09, 3:40 PM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

TRN,

I think you're correct about Women's suffrage. (If so, Elie should have included "Jet" and I suppose "Suffragette City" too! :-)

There was time it was submitted to Congress and the time that it passed. (Was it the 19th amendment?) So there were more than one appropriate date.

 
At 8/17/09, 3:53 PM, Anonymous Clayton said...

How about Joe Walsh's "Vote for Me"? :)

 
At 8/17/09, 4:12 PM, Blogger Yitzchak Goodman said...

14. is maybe called "Country Woman" or something like that? It is on Physical Grafitti, I think.

 
At 8/17/09, 4:39 PM, Anonymous Clayton said...

Yitzchak: Is it "Black Country Woman"? They have a song with that title but I don't know what album it's originally from (I only have it in a box set).

16 - Evil Woman - ELO

Yitzchak: Is it "Black Country Woman"?

Yeah, that's it.

 
At 8/18/09, 1:46 AM, Blogger LEL said...

14.Black Country Woman-Led Zeppelin

 
At 8/18/09, 11:11 AM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

I should have realized it from the lyrics, but Elie also has a sometimes pattern (also I included 1 and 2 in MM #99).

2) Woman, Woman - Gary Puckett and the Union Gap.

(If I hadn't gotten it, Gail would have!)

Now I wonder if he included Barbara Mandrell's Woman to Woman?

 
At 8/18/09, 11:16 AM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

Oh and isn't there W-O-M-A-N that was remade by Diana Muldaur? (I forget who did the original, but I bet it's included here. Could it be 4?)

 
At 8/18/09, 2:46 PM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

Ignore that previous, comment, I realized that it's not "W-O-M-A-N", but as Laura noted "I'm a woman." So the only question remains is who sang the original.

 
At 8/18/09, 3:53 PM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

38) When you're in love with a beautiful woman - Dr. Hook (Ray Sawyer) - I believe without his Medicine Show

 
At 8/18/09, 4:59 PM, Anonymous Clayton said...

34 - Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon - the version I have is by Urge Overkill from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, but I'm pretty sure it's a cover.

 
At 8/18/09, 5:10 PM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

Clayton, Neil Diamond sang it, but I'm not sure that he was the original.

I remember someone joking that Roman Polanski sang it.

 
At 8/18/09, 11:50 PM, Blogger Yitzchak Goodman said...

Here's a few bonuses:

A. "You got 16 lovely children/No proud father knocking at your door."

B. "We both been there before, before"

C. "Call to the fish today/
See what he has to say."

Thanks Clayton, but you didn't need to reproduce my *gag* for Michael Bolton. :-)

I guess the title of 37 will have the words Woman and Love in it.

8, I assume would have You or She in it.
