Welcome to GOLQ348! At first glance, this looks like a no-theme quiz, and
it actually should work quite well without using the theme. However, there
is a theme that ties the artists together. For groups, one or more group
members, especially ones who played major roles in these songs, are part of
the theme. The title of the album on which one of the songs in this quiz
made its U.S. album debut serves as a clue to this theme. Also, a word in
the title of the album on which another song appears serves as part of a
clue to the theme, while the artist name of yet another song serves as the
other part of this clue.

You don't know how many times I wish that I had told you
You don't know how many times I wish that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I wish that I could mold you into someone

You told me when my girl was untrue
I loaned you money when the funds weren't too cool
I talked your folks out of making you cut off your hair

I'm crossing you in style
Some day

Well she dances to the bop
She dances to the stroll
She dances to the walk
She can rock and roll

It's right that I should care about you
And try to make you happy when you're blue

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?

If I was to say it to you
Girl we couldn't get much higher

We'll live a life no one has ever known
But I know you're thinking that I'm hardly grown
But oh thank God at last and finally

The one we danced to all night long
It used to bring sweet memories (sweet memories)
Of a tender love that used to be

He's walkin' down
Some street in town
And I know he's lookin' there for me

These arms
These arms want to hold you
Hold you again

Now she's dancing going through the movements
Swaying to and fro
Body moving bringing back a memory
Thoughts of long ago

Remember how it used to was
Before the rovin' eye of love
Why does it do the way it does

Listen to the talk that's goin' 'round the town
Everywhere you go they're spreadin' it around
Sayin' that you've gone and found another one

Because I'm hopin' obviously
That someday the answer will be

Left school with a first class pass
Started work but as second class
School taught one and one is two
But right now that answer just ain't true

But the dawn is breakin'
It's early morn
Taxi's waitin'
He's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry

Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like a Union Jack

Wish I didn't feel like winter
'Cause spring's a better thing I know
I know I'd feel so much better
If I could only let her go

And I wonder
Where she will stay-yay

Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

He's got everything a girl could want
Man, oh, man
What a prize

Sweet perfume
Those little old roses bloom
And I want to walk with you
My whole life through

Just take me inside your arms
And hold me tight
And always be by my side
If I am wrong or right

I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feelin' better
I'll close with love the way you do


Just a loud-mouthed Yankee
I went down to Mexico
I didn't have much time to spend
About a week or so

Now, we don't feel tied down
Although our hearts are bound
I don't have to chase her all over town
My baby she's always around
