Welcome to GOLQ 409!  This month's quiz has no specific theme, but there is one
"tribute song"  among a balanced mix of Top 10 and Top 40 hits, with a few
stumpers thrown in for good measure.   Enjoy!

We danced all night to a rockin' band
And fell in love with the surfer beat

I remember when we used to be in in our teens
Wearing bobby sox and old blue jeans

Four-speed, dual quad positraction

Is she fooling
Is it all a game
Am I the fire
Or just another flame

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach

And I drive the main road
Searching in the sun for another overload

And then you say, "Hello"
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so

Here's the moral and a story from that guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows

You look so good to me
Ooh, ooh, wee

But I could not believe the things they said
Because my heart overruled my head

I sit alone most every night
Watch those trains pull out of sight

A tock a tock a tock a tock a

I will be bold
Brave and swift will I be
And I will be numero uno

Born in the heat of the desert
My mother died giving me life

He takes me where I get my fill
Want you to know I love him so

I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm

Say that you're my sweetheart
My one and only sweetheart
Say that you're my sweetheart, my love

Oh, but here for the moment
I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

At the last light of evening
I held you in my arms
Now when days grow stormy
And lonely for me
I just recall

Can you hear me singing a song
Loving a song, singing a song
Loving a song, laughing a song
Singing a song

Oh-oh when I feel your charm
It's like a four alarm
You make me thrill so much

In your hands my heart is clay
To take and hold as you may
I'm what you make me
You've only to take me
And in your arms I will stay

Run on, little girl
Run on your merry way
But don't forget
Everyone, everyone has his day

There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away

There is someone who really needs you
Here's my heart in my hand


When your prized possessions start to weigh you down
Look in my direction, I'll be 'round

If you don't give me no consolation
I'm gonna take it to the United Nation
I'm gonna see that you be back home
