Musical Monday #120

Welcome to the 120th 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 just a single theme today, though I will say that the last three songs belong to a different genre than the rest.

1) "I never said I was a victim of circumstance"
2) "All these places had their moments"
3) "This is for the ones who stood their ground"
4) "I'm breakin' loose, it ain't no use"
5) "Do you wanna be somebody else?"
6) "I'm changing, arranging"
7) "And if I do, I know the way there"
8) "Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn"
9) "The shadows of misty yesteryears"
10) "Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial"
11) "Exhibition is your habit, emotion second hand"
12) "And I was born with a jealous mind"
13) "You can sell your soul, but don’t you sell it too cheap"
14) "Pop me down jack me up shoot me out flyin' down the highway"
15) "I have something I know won't desert me, I'm not alone anymore"
16) "Made the bus in seconds flat"
17) "You'll come back and you'll look around you"
18) "Who am I without you by my side?"
19) "Heard about Pittsburgh, PA"
20) "They paid heavenly bills"
21) "So don't be surprised to see me, back in that bright part of town"
22) "You stare politely right on through"
23) "The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs"
24) "Two doors remain before your others and your own"
25) "Oh, how nature loves her little surprises!"
26) "Please don't talk about sweet love"
27) "You boiled me over, now you're cold as ice"
28) "I have a limo, ride in the back"
29) "This is a tricky situation, I've only got myself to blame"
30) "So you bought the best selling novel, knowing that you couldn't miss"
31) "Each breath that we breathe, with love we must weave"
32) "Sometimes you turn your head to the wind"
33) "Take a look at the Lawman, beating up the wrong guy"
34) "Here come Johnny with the power and the glory"
35) "Never again to be all alone"
36) "How could so much love be inside of you?"
37) "Where were you when I was burned and broken?"
38) "But all are agreed as they join the stampede"
39) "When you're feeling in the dumps, don't be silly chumps!"
40) "Here's to whatever comes"

Good luck and enjoy!

1) My life - Billy Joel
16) Day in the life - The Beatles
36) You are the sunshine of my life - Stevie Wonder

I guess these are "Life" songs, appropriate to a birthday!

2) In My Life, John Lennon
16) Day in the Life, The Beatles

32 - Life is a Highway - Tom Cochrane

 
At 12/8/09, 12:55 PM, Blogger Yitzchak Goodman said...

The ultimate life title might be Willie Dixon's "I live the life I love and I love the life I live." It could be that I once heard Mose Allison sing this live.

I'm wondering if Steve Winwood's "Back in the High Life" is in here, but I can't remember enough to ID it.

40 - to life, lchayim fiddler on the roof

 
At 12/8/09, 5:22 PM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

Clayton - Could it be #8?

I thought of The Glamorous Life by Sheila E, which I don't think is here and Isn't Life Strange, by the Moody Blues, which I also doubt is included.

 
At 12/8/09, 5:38 PM, Blogger Elie said...

Great so far, all!! A few responses to earlier comments:

Is there a Guess Who song called "Hang on to your life"?

Yes, and it's here!

I'm wondering if Steve Winwood's "Back in the High Life" is in here

Yes again.

The Glamorous Life by Sheila E, which I don't think is here and Isn't Life Strange, by the Moody Blues

No on the first, yes on the second.

 
At 12/8/09, 5:47 PM, Blogger Elie said...

Oh, and #8 is not "Back in the High Life Again". It's actually a song from the current half-decade, if that helps.

25 - A Life of Illusion - Joe Walsh

 
At 12/9/09, 11:36 AM, Blogger Soccer Dad said...

I'm going to take another stab at "Back in the High Life again" - 21.

 
At 12/9/09, 1:53 PM, Anonymous Clayton said...

Likewise, I'll guess that "Isn't Life Strange" is #31.

Oh, and I think that 26 is by Elisa Bridges or something like that ...

 
At 12/11/09, 12:03 PM, Blogger Elie said...

Alicia Bridges actually, but speling dusnt cownt here anyway!
:-)

Wanted to note that I finally got around to posting the solutions to MMs 114, 116, and 118, so check those out if you're interested. Will hold off on this one for a bit, but meanwhile here are a few hints on some of the remaining ones:

3 and 4: I could have used these in MM #114. And 8-9 would have almost made that theme as well.

5: Really modern song, I only know it via my kids.

22: Also modern, but one I know on my own.

 
At 1/5/10, 8:37 PM, Blogger Elie said...
