And now, in the category "Funk Rock", name that song...

There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down


But I'm ready, yes, I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating to the sound of the beat oh yeah

-----------------------------------

Quote: Mosca

Okay, nobody knows:

Now down on Rampart street at Willy's Den
He wasn't selling but a little gin
One cat wanted a bottle of wine
He hit that cat for a dollar and a dime


?

Here are some more lyrics:

Down in New Orleans where everything's fine all them cats is drinkin' that wine
Drinkin' that mess to heartís delight when they get drunk start fightin' all night....


Now I've got a nickel if you got a dime let's get together and get a little wine
Some buys a gallon some buys a quart
When you buy blackberry you're doin' things smart....


It's a long shot, but the nickle and dime lyric reminds me of "Take a Whiff On Me" by Woody Guthrie.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

The window isn't open and the fan is broke
And my face is turning blue
I haven't been in a crowd like this
Since I went to see The Who
I shoulda got off a couple miles ago but I couldn't get to the door
There isn't any room for me to breathe and now we're gonna pick up more, look out!

Ding! Ding! Another one names the song!!

Not surprisingly, this song was written by bass player John Deacon. The idea was to make a Queen song that people could dance to since dance clubs and disco were big at the time. None of the band members thought it would do as well as it did.

In an odd side note, the song is often used for CPR training since the bass line thumps along at 110 beats per minute and chest compressions should be given in the 100-120 range. So, you might strangely find yourself saving someone's life while chanting "another one bites the dust".


-------------------------

And now, in the category "Weird Rock", name that song...

She's well-acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicolored mirrors
On his hobnail boots
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I was on a boat today and heard this song play. Havenít been following this thread so sorry if my posting is against thread etiquette.

Iím not sorry
Or if this song was posted already.
Sorry, not sorry.


Everybody wants a thrill.
Paying anything to roll the dice just one more time.

I don't think anyone ever answered this one.

Don't Stop Believing by Journey



Correct! Well played. Love that song.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Ding! Ding! Correct!!

Due to its weirdness or perhaps the fact that it's a fun song, all four Beatles declared this to be their favorite track on the White Album.


-----------------------------
And now, celebrating the dawn of the 2020's, in the category "1920's #1s", name that song...

A smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room
A little nest that's nestled where the roses bloom
Just Molly and me
And baby makes three
We're happy in...

My Blue Heaven

The only way I know this is, I remember Loretta Swit singing it on an episode of M*A*S*H
