Welcome to GOLQ426!  There is one major theme that covers every song, including
the tie-breakers.  The theme is something that the artists have in common.
Some of the songs have things in common with at least one other song, and in
some cases, that's why I chose them, but they are incidental to the main

'Cause they'll be rockin' on "Bandstand"
In Philadelphia, P-A
Deep in the heart of Texas
And 'round the Frisco Bay

The way you do the thing you do
The way you kiss me too
The way you do the things you do
The way you kiss me too
My heart's delight
That's what you are

And if the way I hold you
Can't compare to his caress
No words of consolation
Will make me miss you less

It's useless to say
So I'll just live my life
In dreams of yesterday

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I've been this way since 1956

Watch me now!
(Work! Work!) Aw work it out, baby
(Work! Work!) Well you drivin' me crazy
(Work! Work!) Just a little bit of soul now

You broke my heart
When you said we'll part

We only talked for a minute or two
And it felt like I knew him my whole life through
I don't know if you could call it love
But he's everything I've been dreaming of

When you hear the beat
You want to pat your feet
And you gotta move
'Cause it's really such a groove

I pick up the rice in a church where the weddings have been

'Cause we
We got the right foundation
And with love and determination

My dear
I need you
To call my own
And never do wrong
To hold in mine
Your little hand

Now when you're near me, ooo-wee!
My head goes around and around
And when you kiss me, oh yeah!
My love comes tumblin' down
You send me!

I got a girl named Sue
She knows just what to do
She rocked to the east
She rocked to the west
But she's the gal that I love best

It's not love that I'm runnin' from
It's the heartbreak I know will come
'Cause I know you're no good for me
But you've become a part of me

Though you do me wrong now
My love is strong now

'Cause I love you so dearly
Please say you'll be mine

If you need a little huggin'
Call on me
That's all you got to do now
And if you want some kissin'
Call on me, baby

Now I hear this sound everywhere I go
On records, TV, and radio
And now it's spreadin' out over the land
I still can't seem to understand

I will bring you a flower from the floor of the sea [Yeah!]
To wear in your hair
[Thank you]
I'll do anything and every little thing to make you happy, boy
To show you that I care

Your love give me such a thrill
But your love don't pay my bills

What you need
Baby I've got it
What you've got
I'm just-a crazy about it
If you're lookin' for a love
That you'll never get tired of

Well she used to run around
With every man in town
She spent all my money
Tryin' to play her high class game

The moon is shinin' bright
If I could just walk with you
Everything will be all right

So keep it up
Quench my desire
And I'll be at your side
Forever more


You and Latin rhythm burst my thermostat
I go flying down to Rio just like that
Though the language could be wrong
I shout, "Encore!"

Now people came from miles around
And just to hear my little guitar sound
Now some of 'em said I had what it takes
If I'd keep on practice I'd be famous one day
