ANSWERS TO PREVIOUS QUIZ

NMLQOTM #15

Here they are - the 25 songs that make up NMLQOTM #15. Once again, I've challenged you
to identify each song from a lyrical snippet - and as always, I've offered just a little assistance
by ordering the songs alphabetically by the performing artist. Many songs are released by
multiple performers, but only artists that fit the alphabetical rule are considered correct for
scoring purposes. Remember - I'm a stickler for exact titles and artist names.
All songs in this quiz were released between 1956 and 1996. Good luck!

There is a definite theme lurking amidst the songs - keep a sharp eye out. Not only will it help
you identify these tunes, but I also use identification of the theme as the ultimate tiebreaker.
Be sure to mention in your entry if you have found it.

We haven't had anyone new join in for a while - maybe it's time to introduce someone you know
to the quiz. Let me know if there is someone you think might enjoy participating.

If you are new to the NMLQOTM - or even if you've played a while now - it's always helpful to
review the official
rules. Note that precision counts when it comes to scoring the submissions
- be sure to give the exact song title and the exact artist attribution for each song;
dot your "i"s and cross your "t"s! Watch your p's, q's, commas and "the"s!

The submission deadline for this quiz will be Friday, May 20th at 11:59 pm (eastern).

You said things that weren't very nice

Sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then you come and ease the pain

In sixty-five I was seventeen
And running up one-oh-one

Huddled in storms
Some laughing
Some just shapeless forms

Soon to be divorced

Okay
So no one's answering
Well can't you just let it ring a little longer
Longer longer
08>

Well I know (I know)
That I love him so
I'm afraid that he'll never know
Because I (I-I)
I get so timid and shy
Each time that I look him in the eye

No more speed I'm almost there
Gotta keep cool now
Gotta take care

Put it in the back of a red VW microbus
Took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction

Throw out your cares and fly
Wanna go for a ride?

My mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true

And a scimitar by his side
And, every evenin' about midnight
He'd jump on his camel named Clyde and ride

I wake up
I look at your pillow
Hoping that I'll see you there

Nothing seems to fit

That big wheel spins
The hair thins
People forget
Forget they're hiding
