Welcome to GOLQ373!  There are two related themes.  All songs, including the
tie-breakers, are part of at least one of the themes.  The recordings qualify
for the themes via artist name, song title, lyrics, or multiple ones of these.
Some of these are likely to be stumpers, but the themes should help to identify
them.  For one of the tie-breakers, I am familiar with two GOLQ-era
alphabetically-fitting versions of this song (with regard to the other tie-
breaker).  Only one of these two artists has a name that fits one of the
themes, but because it is sometimes hard enough to come up with one artist for
a tie-breaker song you think you know, I will count any alphabetically-fitting
artist as correct.

She's so pretty
She's so fine
She's so sweet
Just my kind

Just because we're, we're seventeen
Tell them all it, please tell them isn't fair
To take away my only dream

Play a guitar that hung to his knees
Then he rolled on the floor like a Pekingese
He almost shook himself in half
And the gals lined up for his autograph

The one with the waggily, waggily tail

If you're happy where you are
Then you need not look too far
If you've found your place at last
Then you need not use the looking glass

Now I've just turned twenty-three
And if you want to get a message to me
All you gotta do

And if I could fly
You wouldn't find me hangin' around
Watching the birds go by

Sings the sweetest love song (you ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)

And every time I go, she gonna miss-a me more and more
She's gonna have a tear in her eye, the time's gonna pass so slow
That's the kind of life for me
A-there's one thing I wanna be

Hey, hey
I'd be long gone

A little white rabbit crossed the road
Rockin' and a-rollin' like a crazy toad
Rhythm said, "Blues, I'll match you ace
while running that rabbit all over the place"

You're so thrilling
And I'm so willing to care for you

Run, run
The hounds are on your trail
Jump up, jump up

Come on, come on, come on, pretty baby
Come on, come on, shake it like you're crazy

Well I thought it was love (thought it was love)
'Cause my heart went a-rockin' and a-reelin'
Felt a tingle in my feet

All the friends playin' music
And they ain't uptight
If one of the kids will

On all the posters that I read
It says the Army builds men
So tearing me down to build me over again

It's spreadin' from the east to the west
My baby can do it best
Earth-shakin', back-breakin' lookin' cool
Oh I like the way you move

Cryin' all the time
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit

There goes a ring-tailed Tom
Struttin' 'round the town
And if you've got your heat turned up
You'd better turn your damper down

People what you think of that (people what you think of that)
That's where I'm at
That's where I'm at

Ask my mama for fifteen cents
See the elephant jump the fence
He jumped so high he touched the sky
Never got back 'til the fourth of July

He meets them (me-owww)
And loves them (me-owww)
And leaves them (me-owww)
Like that cats-anova does

How can people be so heartless
You know I'm hung up on you

If you don't stop I'm gonna put you down
Yes, put you down
I don't want to do it
But I'll have to
Put you down


You can talk to me
You can talk to me
You can talk to me
If you're lonely you can talk to me

I see a rainbow all black
Must be a sign that you ain't comin' back
Wake in the night callin' your name
I see your face on my window pane
