Musical Monday #124

Welcome to the 124th, special Night Edition (nice way to say I ran real late today!) 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 set of songs this week, representing a single theme. I fancy that several of the songs will be relatively easy to find, but the overall theme may be a bit trickier than usual. Or maybe not, with such savvy players! Let's see:

1) "See you later; can I have them please?"
2) "Send me down a love to share"
3) "Cause you make the darkness seem so far"
4) "Wonders how you manage to feed the rest"
5) "We want to multiply; are you gonna do it?"
6) "There was three young ladies in the school gym locker"
7) "Dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel"
8) "Slander my name all over the place"
9) "And if that piece of mind won't stay"
10) "Always away from home, never bothering to phone"
11) "The autumn winds blow chilly and cold"
12) "Something's wrong, shut the light, heavy thoughts tonight"
13) "The Duchess of Kircaldy always smiling"
14) "And we sang dirges in the dark"
15) "Take a ride on a West Coast kick"
16) "Perhaps I'll come to a great success"
17) "Tell me if she laughs or cries"
18) "And they follow the races and pay out the gains"
19) "Advice is cheap, you can take it from me"
20) "Blue eyes cry; two hearts say goodbye"
21) "Asked the fellow for fifteen cents"
22) "Baby sneezes, Mommy pleases, Daddy breezes in"
23) "Why do we give up our hearts to the past?"
24) "We were spinning into darkness; the earth was on fire"
25) "You're old enough some people say, to read the signs and walk away"
26) "Well all we need is a simple song, for people that wanna' dance"

Good luck and enjoy!

9. Possibly "Mockingbird" by James Taylor

Is 2 Cupid by Sam Cooke; the Spinners.

Is the theme nursery rhymes?

(Mockingbird itself is a nursery rhyme made into a popular song. American Pie has "Jack be nimble, jack be quick." Walk this way has Hey diddle diddle.

I guess that "Get Ready" would be in there someplace.)

Did the Jackson Five do a very similar follow-up to "ABC" but with more nursery rhymes?

11. April Come She Will" Simon and Garfunkel

5 - Some Like it Hot - The Power Station
25 - It's Raining Again - Supertramp (children's voices sing "It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring" at the end)

Too obscure to be bonuses, but deserving of mention:

"Fairlane Rock" by Hayden Thompson
("One, two, buckle my shoe")

"All Mama's Children" by Carl Perkins
("There was an old woman who lived in a shoe")

7 - Cross-Eyed Mary - Jethro Tull

IIRC, it has "rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief" somewhere in the lyrics.

1.Cats in the Cradle-Harry Chapin
4.Lady Madonna-The Beatles
5.Some Like it Hot-
6.Walk This Way-Aerosmith

I'm probably wrong about "Get Ready." I was confusing fairy tales (fee fi fo fum) and children's stories (Tweedle dee and Tweedle Dum) with nursery rhymes.

 
At 1/5/10, 12:55 PM, Blogger Yitzchak Goodman said...

Here is a bonus:

"Like Jack Horner/In the corner
Don't go nowhere/What do I care"

 
At 1/5/10, 1:00 PM, Blogger Yitzchak Goodman said...

Speaking of Jethro Tull, there is a line in a Tull song that goes:

As I did walk down Hampstead Fair
I came across Mother Goose/so I turned her loose

Maybe that song is in there somewhere?

The bonus is "Ain't Misbehavin," sung by various artists.

Great so far, all! I should have figured that as soon as I mentioned that I thought theme was "hard", someone would get it immediately. Not only that, but I missed a few good songs for this theme, as per examples above!

Anyway, keep going folks. And FYI, the answers to MM #120 and #122 are up.

Right. It is worth mentioning that Fats Waller wrote and recorded it

#2 is not "Cupid". It's a song from the late 50s that spent several weeks at #1.

Nicely solved, Soccer Dad! A creative theme, Elie, and not so simple a list to compile!

21 sounds like a variation of a line from the Miss Mary Mac clapping rhyme.
