NOTE: Songs #22-#24 have been reordered.


Hello and welcome to oldies lovers world-wide.  I hope everyone is able
to stay safe and cope with our ever-challenging environment.

This quiz is presented in a hybrid format.  That is, some of the lyrics
are textual and a few are in the form of audio snippets.

There is the usual smattering of obscurities but songs 1 through 25 have
a theme.  It will be easily spotted and may be of some benefit
in identifying the songs.  Be aware however, that I may have taken
"artistic license" in a case or two of theme usage.  The tie-breakers are
not included in the theme.

You may download either the individual mp3 files or a 2.9 MB ZIP file
containing all seven audio 7 sound clips at:

Have fun everybody.

And tell me when the beach umbrellas
Are no longer on the sand
When leaves fall on the tennis court
We'll still be hand in hand

What to do
Oh, I'm left here just crying
Over you, oh, I'm so blue
What can I do now
That you're gone

Will you remember
When summer has flown
Another world, a world
That is yours alone

Newborn whippoorwills
Were calling from the hills
Summer was coming in but fast
Lots of daffodils were
Showing off their skills

You kissed me, oh, so tenderly
And I knew this was love
And I as held you, oh, so close
I knew no one could ever
Take your place

Look around you, there's a rainbow
In that watermelon sky
And the twinkling of a million fireflies
Let your heart keep taking pictures
That we'll share as years go by

Hey, take a look at all those other cars
They're parked here just like ours
To count the stars above
It seems we're not alone
I guess I should have known
Romance runs high
The last two weeks in July

If I could hear no music
If there could be no roses
No summer nights to make
Me dream as I do

Listen to the music of the carousel
The ting-aling-alingle of the ice cream bell
The splishing and the splashing and a moonlight swim
The roarin' of the waves when you're surfin'

Well no more studying his-tory
And no more reading geo-graphy
And no more dull geo-metry

She kissed me yesterday
hello the silver linin'
Got spring and summer
runnin' through me

Golden sunshine
And we're glad
My little love and I
Now that summertime is nigh

I'll keep you warm in the winter
Give you cool, cool kisses in the summertime
Walk by your side in the autumn
And in the spring bells will chime

Does your memory stray
To a bright summer day
When I kissed you
And called you sweetheart

All summer long we spent dancin' in the sand
And the jukebox kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Come and see how well despair
is seasoned by the stifling air,
See your ghetto in the good old sizzling summertime

I tried so hard
All summer through
Not to think too much of you
But the more I try
The more I find
I just can't leave the past behind

Let's Twist again,
Like we did last summer, baby
And she say


He played night and day like a demon
And prayed for that one lucky day
When the lush
Royal flush of his dreamin'
Is just a game away

When it comes to lovin' she's a natural master
And each time she's near, well my heart beats faster
Deep down inside I know the best is yet to come
whoa, whoa, whoa
Gonna pick her up about a quarter to seven
I know we're gonna take a little trip to heaven
