Welcome to GOLQ221.  All 27 songs are connected by a theme that shouldn't
be too hard to figure out.  I put this together in a short time, so the
selections no doubt reflect the music with which I am most familiar.  I
consider this to be a relatively easy quiz, even with some genres and time
periods omitted.  However, since this is coming out late, that should make
your work easier.

The timespan for these songs, including the tie-breakers, is from 1957
through 1969.  There is a 1960s emphasis due to my greater familiarity with
this decade.  I had identified some additional 1950s songs for possible
inclusion, but some had been used too recently in other GOLQs for inclusion
on this one, others turned out to have not charted on the Hot 100 (or,
in at least one instance, turned out to be from prior to 1955), and for
others, I couldn't locate proof that lyrics with which I am familiar from
remakes were in these versions.

Have fun, and I hope your summer gets off to a great start!

Rockin' in 2 by 2

Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day

And love comes love shows
I give my heart and no one knows that I do

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing

Why did she have to go?
I don't know, she wouldn't say

Could it be anybody?
Oh, it's gotta be somebody

Then I told you 'bout our kid
Now he's married to Mable

You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie

Well you went off and married
But I love you still

But if I have to walk
I'm going just the same

Give me love and remember what I told you

Girl you get it through your head
That boy is mine

Well on his way
His head in a cloud

Please (hold me)
Squeeze (hold me)

I hope you'll take your time and tell me
When we're alone
Love will come home

I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Everybody kept on playing
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

So I wait and in a while
I will see my true love smile

For the Aintree Iron

I've got everything that you want
Like a heart that's oh so true


All the girls adore him
They think he's pretty cool
If he would look my way
I know just what I'd say
Be mine forever -- forever

Oh baby come on and shake
It's in the bag

I would like you to dance

I tried to please her
She only wasted my time


I send you flowers but you don't care
You never seem to see me standing there

People say I'm lonely
Only you know that's not true
You know I'm waiting for a chance
To prove my love to you
