Welcome to GOLQ 380.  Another great summer.
Everyone having a good time?
Well, maybe not everyone.  This quiz has a theme.
All regular and tie-breaker songs fit the theme.
Like recent themed quizzes, there is a mixture of both well-known and obscure

I wrote a song about her
How wrong could I be
Oh, well, she went and found another
She found another lover
She didn't even bother
To say goodbye to me

"Dear love, I've done you wrong, now I must set you free
No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin
I just couldn't tell you that guy was just a friend"

So you're walking away, so you wanna call it a day
Think of how I'm trying to keep our love
To keep our love from dying, oh, if you should go
Though I hurt you, I still love you baby
And I, I, I let you down
I, I ran around

I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon
I thought you loved me, you said you loved me
We planned together, to dream forever
The dream has ended, for true love died

Oh-oh-oh, how I cried your wedding day
Li-i-ike, like my heart would break
Now-ow you regret, mmm, your wedding day
Now-ow-ow you pay for your sad mistake

Well, every girl I ever loved
Always stepped right on my feet
I thought I had a friend once
But he kicked out my teeth

I wonder why she left me
Why did she leave me
So all alone
So all alone

I tried and I tried (I tried and I tried)
Not to hurt you bad (not to hurt you bad)
I tried so hard (I tried so hard)
Oh not to give in (not to give in)
But I lost my head and I lost my heart
And I lost your love to him

Now it begins, now that you're gone
Needles and pins, twilight till dawn
Watching that clock till you return
Lighting that torch and watching it burn

And no one even cared
Now it's just a memory
It's just a thought
If something's sold then
Something's bought
Poor old Nick, he never sold
He wouldn't leave 'til he was told

Here I am, all by myself
Watching him with someone else
And he doesn't even know I'm here
Wish I could hold back me tears, 'cause

And now we've left Alaska
Because there was no gold mine
(But this time only two of us moves on
Now all we have is each other
And a little memory to cling to)

Saddest thing in the whole wide world
See your baby with another girl

I thought we had a love so strong,
It would take a lifetime to break us apart, oh yeah
I found out today I was wrong,
And my reward was a broken heart, oh

People all around but I don't hear a sound
Just the lonely beating of my heart
No use in holding other hands
For I'd be holding only emptiness

Your mother's here, standing right behind me
She never could resist looking over my shoulder as I write
Your leaving has been very difficult for her
A father they say, worries about his son but
For his daughter, he has dreams

Well, I've been waiting ever since eight
Guess my baby's got another date

You called me on the telephone
And said "Now Suzie dear
You're being mighty silly
In believin' all you hear
You know I love you only
So Suzie save your breath"
But since my name was Cindy Lou

I go to places we used to go
But I know she'll never show
She hurt me so much inside

She used to be my gi-ir-ir-ir-ir-ir-ir-irl
But now there's nothing left to say
She only wanted me for play
I learned my lesson fast
But now I know at last

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your li-i-ips

Well, he's a star now and he's gone for good
Livin' in a mansion in Hollywood
That movie queen, she stole my guy
When I pass the theater I have to cry

You persuaded me to love you,
And I did,
But instead of tenderness, I found heartache instead
Into your arms I fell, so unaware
Of the loneliness that was waiting there

The house that we built was once filled with laughter
But I changed that laughter to tears
And now I live in a world without sunshine
Oh how I wish you were here

I'm so lonesome for you, it's a crime
Going to a movie only makes me sad
Parties make me feel as bad
When I'm not with you


Spoken: "Gee Cathy, I don't want to hurt ya
Oh, I had a lot of fun with you last summer
I know I should have told you, but well I've got a steady girl
She went away for the summer, and well, maybe I was a little lonesome
But you'll find another guy
Look, it was only a summer romance and summer's over now"
Oh, you're so heartless and cruel
But, I'll always love you, like a fool

My friends all tell me,
"She'll be back, she'll be back, she'll be back, wait and see."
Uh-huh, I'll be here waiting till eternity
I cry, yes I cry, while she's not mine
And just think, just think what she said to me
She told me she would always walk the line
It hurts, and I know it shows
