The first four songs share a depressing word in the title. The word may be in singular or plural form. The next four share a much better word. One point for each title and one point for each artist.

1. Yes, it’s been quite a summer
Rent-a-cars and west-bound trains
And now you’re off on vacation
Somethin’ you tried to explain

2. [title], can’t trust that day
[title], sometimes it just turns out that way

3. What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothing is really wrong
Feeling like I don’t belong
Walking around, some kind of lonely clown

4. I got nothing but love for you
So tell me what you really wanna do
First you love me then you get on down the line
But I don’t mind

5. A man playing guitar
Singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)

6. It’s hard on a fella when he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I’m gonna have to blow this town

7. Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"

8. Big Jim’s been drinkin’ whiskey
And playing poker on a losin’ night
And pretty soon Big Jim starts a thinkin’
Somebody’s been cheatin’ and lyin’

Since Monday is my Thursday and Saturday is my Tuesday, I'm not sure I agree with your assessment of the key words in this game, but it is ironic timing on the first night of my 9 day vacation!

If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I’m gonna have to blow this town
ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT -- SAM COOKE, CAT STEVENS, ETC.

7. Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"
SATURDAY NIGHT'S ALL RIGHT FOR FIGHTING -- ELTON JOHN

8. Big Jim’s been drinkin’ whiskey
And playing poker on a losin’ night
And pretty soon Big Jim starts a thinkin’
Somebody’s been cheatin’ and lyin’
