Musical Monday #138

Welcome to the 138th edition of Musical Monday (or is it Tuneful Tuesday this week?), 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.

Since this is already late, no long intro - let's get right to the songs:

1) "Say you're leavin' on the seven thirty train"
2) "Wondering what in the world did I do"
3) "Now, I can see every dream, when I look in your eyes"
4) "I've been lookin' for a trace, lookin' for a heart"
5) "And kisses your ear in the early moonlight"
6) "Can't you feel the weight of my stare?"
7) "I'm laid up here lookin' at my shoes, stuck here with these hotel blues"
8) "I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles"
9) "Take a long ride on my motor bike"
10) "I'll never be imprisoned by a faded memory"
11) "They just keep on puffin' how they multiply"
12) "Millions of people living as foes"
13) "You've been hiding out, I know that's true"
14) "Take my chick and we dance about"
15) "Old dogs and new tricks and habits we ain't kicked"
16) "You say he satifies your mind, tells you all of his dreams"
17) "But I never saw my baby 'till the encore"
18) "You know the one, Doctor 'Everything'll Be Alright'"
19) "I can't get any rest, people say I'm obsessed"
20) "I'm so excited, I'm in too deep"
21) "Come on you raver, you seer of visions"
22) "I fear I'll do some damage one fine day"
23) "I don't want to drink my whiskey like you do"
24) "We know you've got to blame someone, for your own confusion"
25) "I lost my power in this world, and the rumors are flying"
26) "Don't touch me I'm a real live wire"
27) "On a wire between will and what will be"
28) "There's no reason why my being shy should keep us apart"
29) "I can't see the things that make true happiness"
30) "And every day the paper boy brings more"
31) "Making friends with shadows on my wall"
32) "I walked through Bedford Stuy alone"
33) "You laughed and laughed and then you left"

Good luck and enjoy!
