Welcome to the 25th anniversary edition of the Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz!
To mark this special occasion, a theme applies to the recordings used for
#01-#25. This should be a very easy quiz, even if you don't figure out the
theme. The tie-breakers are not part of this theme. They had an achievement
similar to the other songs, but not in the same place as them or to each
other. And here's a clue for you all--no more than one of them achieved
this in a setting originated by Billboard.

Year range: 1955-1969 (with potential chart entry in late 1954 or chart
continuation into early 1970) including the tie-breakers.

(If you have seen a prerelease version of GOLQ344, please note that songs
#01 and #06 have been replaced.)

Someone, yes someone to love
Someone to kiss
Someone to hold
At a moment like this

Yeah you got that somethin'
I think you'll understand
When I feel that somethin'

I've made up my mind
To live in memories
Of the lonesome time

My daddy is sleepin'
And mama ain't around

Do the dance sensations
That are sweepin' the nation

He stood 6 foot 6 and weighed two-forty-five

Bells will ring
The-uh-uh sun will shine
Whoh-oh-oh I'll be his
And he'll be mine

Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

We just sit around and dream of those old memories
Ah but one of these days I'm gonna lay down tracks

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time

She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around her she wore

Ah, now I don't hardly know her
But I think I could love her

Jumped out of bed
Turned on the light
I pulled down the shade
Went to the kitchen for a bite

If you wanted the sky
I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe

Oh now I'm gonna find her
For my heart is full of woe
We'll do the things together
We did so long ago

What's the use in tryin'
All you get is pain
When I needed sunshine
I got rain

What would I do
If he came back
And wanted you

I don't want no other love
Baby it's just you I'm thinkin' of

And the Lord said now that I've made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And he made a little tree and I guess you heard
What then well he made a little bird

When I'm ridin' 'round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that

Hide it in a hiding place where no one ever goes
Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes

No love, love don't come easy
But I keep on waiting, anticipating
For that soft voice to talk to me at night
For some tender arms to hold me tight

Me and you
And you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be

Well he went on his way
And then what do you know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowin' it out
A'really knockin''em dead
Playin' rock-n-roll music


A look from your eyes
A touch of your hand
And I seem to fly to some other land
When you are around
My heart always pounds
Just like a brass band

Well, she's not too tall
Complexion is fair
Man she knocks me out
The way she wears her hair
