And now, in the category 70's Pop, name that song...

Young and beautiful
But someday your looks will be gone
When the others turn you off
Who'll be turning you on?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I was at the stadium
There were twenty thousand girls called their names out to me
Marie and ruth but to tell you the truth
I didn't hear them I didn't see
I let my eyes rise to the big tower clock
And I heard those bells chimin' in my heart
Going ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong.
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
Counting the time, then you came to my room
And you whispered to me and we took the big plunge
And oh. you were so good, oh, you were so fine
And I gotta tell the world that I make her mine make her mine
Make her mine make her mine make her mine make her mine



Nobody is going to even guess at it, so,

Ride in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim
You know, those were different times
Oh, all the poets, they studied rules of verse
And those ladies, they rolled their eyes



Same thing:

This is “Sweet Jane”, by The Velvet Underground/Lou Reed, also covered by Mott the Hoople and The Cowboy Junkies, among others.

Love Will Keep Us Together by Captain & Tennille.



Winner! Winner! Sweet Talking Chicken Dinner!!

Written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield, "Love Will Keep Us Together" first appeared on Sedaka's 1973 studio album The Tra-La Days Are Over which did not have a US release. The Captain & Tennille version was released in 1975 and ended up spending 4 on top of the Billboard charts. Love really did keep Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille together, at least until they divorced in 2014 after 39 years.

And now, in the category, Euro Disco, name that song...

You can dance, you can jive
Having the time of your life
Ooh, see that girl, watch that scene
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Old man down
Way down, down, down by the docks of the city
Blind and dirty
Asked me for a dime, a dime for a cup of coffee
I got no dime but I got some time to hear his story
My name is August West, and I love my Pearly Baker best more than my wine
More than my wine
More than my maker, though he's no friend of mine
Everyone said
I'd come to no good, I knew I would Pearly, believe them
Half of my life
I spent doin' time for some other fucker's crime
The other half found me stumbling 'round drunk on Burgundy wine
But I'll get back on my feet again someday
The good Lord willin'
If He says I may
I know that the life I'm livin's no good
I'll get a new start, live the life I should
I'll get up and fly away,
I'll get up and fly away, fly away
Pearly's been true
True to me, true to my dyin' day he said
I said to him
I said to him, "I'm sure she's been"
I said to him, "I'm sure she's been true to you"
I got up and wandered
Wandered downtown, nowhere to go but just hang around
I've got a girl
Named Bonnie Lee, I know that girl's been true to me
I know she's been, I'm sure she's been true to me

And now, in the category Broadway Classics, name that song...

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say
Yeeow! A-yip-i-o-e-ay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.
