Welcome to GOLQ393, which is an audio GOLQ.  Six of the 27 songs are part of a
minor theme, and the other 21 are part of the major theme.  The songs in the
major theme qualify via the song.  The songs in the minor theme qualify by
something heard in the audio snippets for each, which will become obvious once
they are encountered.  Several of the songs in the major theme were relatively
low-charting, and some, more than the usual amount for one of my quizzes, are
by easy listening artists rather than rock & roll or r&b artists.  But despite
the relatively poor chart positions of some of them, almost all have achieved
lasting fame as a result of being heard in outlets other than Top 40 or r&b
radio and 45 rpm records.  Once you figure out the major theme, it may help to
identify other songs that are part of it.

You may download either the individual mp3 files or an 9.3 MB ZIP file
containing all 27 sound clips at:
