Game #178: Lyrics from A to Z

Identify the 100 songs below. Then, match them into 25 groups of four according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. No song will be used twice.

Note: in cases where artists are significant, I usually go with the original, but in some cases, a definitive cover might take precedence.

I’m not sure if this game is easy or difficult. I’m just hoping it won’t yield any alternate matches.

1. I'm up on him, he up on me,
Don't pay him any attention
'Cause I cried my tears
For three good years,
Ya can't be mad at me.

2. I know I keep you amused
But I feel I'm being used.

3. How long can I exist
Wanting lips I've never kissed?
She gives all her kisses to somebody else.
She thinks I'm just a friend.
Though it hurts, I must pretend.
The only way to keep her, is to keep it to myself.

4. Cap'n Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair.
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, "Daddy, oh, don't you dare!”

5. Night after night, day after day, it went on and on,
Then came that morning he woke up alone.
He spent all night staring down at the lights of LA,
Wondering if he could ever go home.

6. A Salvation Army Band played
And children drunk lemonade
And the morning lasted all day,
All day.

7. Who's tripping down the streets of the city,
Smilin' at everybody she sees?
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment?

8. You're calmer than the seals in the Arctic Ocean.
At least they flap their fins to express emotion.

9. I've seen your picture,
Your name in lights above it.
This is your big debut.
It's like a dream come true.

10. But I think that you're wild
When you flash that fragile smile.

11. I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life.
I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life.
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night.

12. Whenever I'm alone with you,
You make me feel like I am home again.
Whenever I'm alone with you,
You make me feel like I am whole again.

13. The girls we knew
Who thought you were cool?
I never introduced my favorite ones to you.

14. It's easy to deceive,
It's easy to tease,
But hard to get release.

15. I've got no fare to ride a train,
I'm nearly drownin' in the pourin' rain.

16. Just when I thought I'd get outta there with my skin
These five big dudes come strollin in
With one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth.
I was almost to the door when the biggest one
Said, "You tip your hat to this lady, son!"
And when I did, all that hair fell out from underneath.

17. It's not the things you do that tease and hurt me bad,
But it's the way you do the things you do to me.
I'm not the kinda girl who gives up just like that.

18. You´re a genie in disguise,
Full of wonder and surprise.

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

20. Ah, I've just got to have her, have her now.
I've got to get closer, but I don't know how.
She makes me nervous and makes me scared,
But I feel so good if I just say the word.

21. I've been tryin' to write the lyric,
Non-offensive but satiric, too,
And if you put it in the A-slot
It's just got to make a mint for you.

22. I'm not man or machine,
I'm just something in between,
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I'm all love, a dynamo
So push the button and let me go,
Whoa, oh, whoa, whoa.

23. Staring blindly into space,
Getting up to splash my face,
Wanting just to stay awake,
Wondering how much I can take.

24. Have you ever been close to tragedy
Or been close to folks who have?
Have you ever felt a pain so powerful
So heavy you collapse? No?

25. Why do you keep a-coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?

26. Sick at heart and lonely,
Deep in dark despair.
Thinking one thought only:
Where is she? Tell me where.

27. And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around.
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down.

28. Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love through sorrow.
I’ve given you my onliness.
Give your tomorrow.

29. Sunny afternoons that made me feel so warm inside
Have turned as cold and gray as ashes
As I feel the embers die.

30. I hear you crying in the darkness.
Don't ask nobody's help.
Ain't no pockets full of mercy, baby,
'Cause you can only blame yourself

31. I don't want another pretender
To disillusion me one more time,
Whispering words of forever,
Playing with my mind.

32. Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down.
Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free.
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key.

33. Fox the fox,
Rat the rat,
You can ape the ape,
I know about that,

34. Look at our life now,
Tattered and torn.
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears
That we cry until dawn.

35. There's no money falling from the sky,
'Cause a man took my heart and robbed me blind.
Someone stole my brand new Chevrolet
And the rent is due, I got no place to stay.

36. Words are few I have spoken.
I could waste a thousand years.
Wrapped in sorrow, words are token.
Come inside and catch my tears.

37. I never liked the rain before,
It always made me stay inside.
There's one thing that I know for sure,
I got a reason to like it
Since you took me for a rainbow ride.

38. I can make you mine,
Taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day.
Only trouble is,
Gee whiz,
I'm dreamin' my life away.

39. Say, Miss? Right here?
Now why you want to act like that man ain't yours
Just 'cause he's walkin' with you with them raggedy clothes?

40. Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see
I like you the way you are.

41. I've seen you walking down in Chinatown.
I called you but you could not look around.

42. Have you heard about the new dance craze?
Listen to us, I'm sure you'll be amazed.

43. I come 'round, around the hard way,
Bring you comics in bed,
Scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you French toast again.

44. There goes my baby,
There goes my heart,
They're gone forever,
So far apart.

45. I've felt so self-assured,
But suddenly it's all changed.
She's a cloud
That hangs above my world,
And I find myself wand'ring in the rain,
And now I can't go on.

46. Making love with you
Has left me peaceful, warm, and tired.
What more could I ask?
There's nothing left to be desired.

47. Don't let them in, don't let them see,
Be the good girl you always have to be,
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know.
Well, now they know!

48. I'm not that kind of guy who can take a broken heart
So don't ever leave,
I don't want to see us part.
The very thought of losing you means
That everything would go down under.

49. Go on and go free, yeah.
Maybe you're too close to see.
I can feel your body move,
It doesn't mean that much to me.

50. I see them looking,
I make them want me,
I like to tease them,
They want to touch me,
I never let them.

51. Beats and lyrics to make you shake your pants.
Take a chance.
Come on and dance.

52. Lord, we don't need another mountain.
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb.
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.

53. I'll be the sun shining on you.
Hey, Cinderella, step in your shoe!

54. I stay out too late,
Got nothin' in my brain.
That's what people say, mmm hmm,
That's what people say, mmm hmm.

55. Face to face, out in the heat,
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry.
They stack the odds 'till we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive.

56. I can't wait forever,
Even though you want me to,
I can't wait forever
To know if you'll be true.

57. Don't know
Just what I said wrong but, girl, I apologize.
Don't go,
Here's where you belong, so wipe the tears from your eye.

58. Remembering the good times
From a portrait hung on high,
It's filled with so much color
And the laughter we left behind.
I made the choice and you couldn't decide.
I made the choice, I was wrong, you were right.
Deep down inside I apologize.

59. Come doused in mud, soaked in bleach,
As I want you to be.

60. I'll be loungin' on the couch, just chillin' in my snuggie,
Flip to MTV so they can teach me how to Dougie.

61. Something happened to my heart the day that I met you,
Something that I never felt before.
You are always on my mind, no matter what I do
And every day it seems I want you more.

62. As you're leaving, please, would you close the door?
And don't forget what I told you.
Just 'cause you're right that don't mean I'm wrong,
Another shoulder to cry upon.

63. It’s raining, it’s pouring,
My love life is boring me to tears
After all these years.

64. And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding.
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how.

65. My little chick is my heart's desire.
Well, the way we kiss, it puts the school on fire.

66. Well, I can say goodbye in the cold morning light,
But I can't watch love die in the warmth of the night.

67. Living without you,
Living alone,
This empty house seems so cold.
Wanting to hold you,
Wanting you near,
How much I wanted you home.

68. Fading in, fading out,
On the edge of paradise,
Every inch of your skin
Is a Holly Grail I've got to find.
Only you can set my heart on fire, on fire.

69. Her long blonde hair
Hangin' down around her knees.
All the cats who dig striptease
Prayin' for a little breeze.

70. Taller than the tallest tree is,
That's how it's got to feel.
Deeper than the deep blue sea is,
That's how deep it goes if it's real.

71. And there's a feelin', deep down inside me,
I can't explain it and you're wondering why.
You say we've been like strangers,
But I'm not the others you can wrap 'round your fingers.

72. Look all around, there's nothin' but blue skies,
Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies.

73. Take back that sad word goodbye,
Bring back the joy to my life,
Don't leave me here with these tears,
Come and kiss this pain away.

74. Well, then what's to be the reason for becoming man and wife?
Is it love that brings you here or love that gives you life?
For if loving is the answer, then who's the giving for?
Do you believe in something that you've never seen before?

75. Love game intuition, play the cards with spades to start,
And after he's been hooked, I'll play the one that's on his heart.

76. In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty
I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind.

77. If we still have time, we might still get by.
Every time I think about it, I want to cry.
With bombs and the devil, and the kids keep comin',
No way to breathe easy, no time to be young.

78. Stay with me,
My love, I hope you'll always be
Right here by my side if ever I need you.
Oh, my love.

79. I gotta watch you walk in the room, baby,
I gotta watch you walk out,
I like the animal way you move
And when you talk, I just watch your mouth.

80. Can you take good care of Jenny?
Can you take her to school every day?
Can you teach her how to play
All the games that little girls play?

81. Pushing the night
Into the daytime,
Watching the sky's first light
While the city sleeps.

82. Oh my love,
You're so good,
Treating me so cruel.
There you go
With your fancy lies
Leavin' me lookin' like a dumbstruck fool.

83. I love you, there's nothing to hide,
It's better than burning inside.

84. When people lock their doors and hide inside,
Rumor has it it's the end of Paradise.

85. One man in a million may shout a bit,
Now and then there’s one with slight defects,
One, perhaps, whose truthfulness you doubt a bit,
But, by and large, we are a marvelous sex.

86. And even though the moment passed me by,
I still can't turn away,
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way,
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away.

87. I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it. (You can't have it)
Thruppence and sixpence every day
Just to drive to my baby,
Thruppence and sixpence each day.

88. And then your heart won't have to break like mine did
If there's love behind it.

89. They like to get you in a compromising position,
They like to get you there and smile in your face.
They think they're so cute when they got you in that condition.
Well, I think it's a total disgrace.

90. I'll make you happy, baby, just wait and see.
For every kiss you give me, I'll give you three.

91. So slide over here
And give me a moment,
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know,
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind.

92. Won't you sign up your name?
We'd like to feel you're acceptable,
Respectable,
Oh, presentable, a vegetable!

93. People standin',
Standin' in a trance.
Sister out in the backyard
Doin' the outside dance.

94. Now you'll be my girl,
That's what I want.
Just you, sweet girl,
And not a front.

95. Through the door there came familiar laughter.
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

96. I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day.
I know they say, “Let it be,”
But it just don't work out that way.

97. I know you don't like weak women,
You get bored so quick,
And you don't like strong women
'Cause they're hip to your tricks.

98. It makes me just feel like crying
'Cause baby, something beautiful's dyin'.

99. Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions,
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool.

100. So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D.
Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me.

First consolidation …

Identify the 100 songs below. Then, match them into 25 groups of four according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. No song will be used twice.

Note: in cases where artists are significant, I usually go with the original, but in some cases, a definitive cover might take precedence.

I’m not sure if this game is easy or difficult. I’m just hoping it won’t yield any alternate matches.

1. I'm up on him, he up on me,
Don't pay him any attention
'Cause I cried my tears
For three good years,
Ya can't be mad at me.
SINGLE LADIES (PUT A RING ON IT), Beyonce

2. I know I keep you amused
But I feel I'm being used.
MAGGIE MAY, Rod Stewart

3. How long can I exist
Wanting lips I've never kissed?
She gives all her kisses to somebody else.
She thinks I'm just a friend.
Though it hurts, I must pretend.
The only way to keep her, is to keep it to myself.
IT HURTS TO BE IN LOVE, Gene Pitney

4. Cap'n Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair.
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, "Daddy, oh, don't you dare!”
FEVER, Peggy Lee (or Little Willie John)

5. Night after night, day after day, it went on and on,
Then came that morning he woke up alone.
He spent all night staring down at the lights of LA,
Wondering if he could ever go home.
HOLLYWOOD NIGHTS, Bob Seger

6. A Salvation Army Band played
And children drunk lemonade
And the morning lasted all day,
All day.
LIFE IN A NORTHERN TOWN, The Dream Academy

7. Who's tripping down the streets of the city,
Smilin' at everybody she sees?
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment?
WINDY, The Association

8. You're calmer than the seals in the Arctic Ocean.
At least they flap their fins to express emotion.
A FINE ROMANCE, Fred & Ginger

9. I've seen your picture,
Your name in lights above it.

When you flash that fragile smile.
YOU MIGHT THINK, The Cars

11. I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life.
I don't want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life.
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night.

12. Whenever I'm alone with you,
You make me feel like I am home again.
Whenever I'm alone with you,
You make me feel like I am whole again.

13. The girls we knew
Who thought you were cool?
I never introduced my favorite ones to you.

14. It's easy to deceive,
It's easy to tease,
But hard to get release.

15. I've got no fare to ride a train,
I'm nearly drownin' in the pourin' rain.

16. Just when I thought I'd get outta there with my skin
These five big dudes come strollin in
With one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth.
I was almost to the door when the biggest one
Said, "You tip your hat to this lady, son!"
And when I did, all that hair fell out from underneath.
UNEASY RIDER, Charlie Daniels Band

But it's the way you do the things you do to me.
I'm not the kinda girl who gives up just like that.
THE TIDE IS HIGH, Blondie

18. You´re a genie in disguise,
Full of wonder and surprise.
BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW, The Stylistics

19. And if the way I hold you
Can't compare to his caress,
No words of consolation
Will make me miss you less.
MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF, Jerry Butler

20. Ah, I've just got to have her, have her now.
I've got to get closer, but I don't know how.
She makes me nervous and makes me scared,
But I feel so good if I just say the word.
SUSSUDIO, Phil Collins

21. I've been tryin' to write the lyric,
Non-offensive but satiric, too,
And if you put it in the A-slot
It's just got to make a mint for you.

22. I'm not man or machine,
I'm just something in between,
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
I'm all love, a dynamo
So push the button and let me go,
Whoa, oh, whoa, whoa.

Getting up to splash my face,
Wanting just to stay awake,

Have you ever felt a pain so powerful
So heavy you collapse? No?

25. Why do you keep a-coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?
YOU JUST KEEP ME HANGING ON, The Supremes

26. Sick at heart and lonely,
Deep in dark despair.
Thinking one thought only:
Where is she? Tell me where.

27. And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around.
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down.

28. Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love through sorrow.
I’ve given you my onliness.
Give your tomorrow.
IF I WERE A CARPENTER, Bobby Darin

29. Sunny afternoons that made me feel so warm inside
Have turned as cold and gray as ashes
As I feel the embers die.

30. I hear you crying in the darkness.
Don't ask nobody's help.
Ain't no pockets full of mercy, baby,
'Cause you can only blame yourself

31. I don't want another pretender
To disillusion me one more time,
Whispering words of forever,
Playing with my mind.

32. Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down.
Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free.
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key.
ALREADY GONE, Eagles

33. Fox the fox,
Rat the rat,
You can ape the ape,
I know about that,

34. Look at our life now,
Tattered and torn.
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears
That we cry until dawn.

But, by and large, we are a marvelous sex.

Got tossed along the way,
And letters that you never meant to send
Get lost or thrown away.

And sent it special D.

I'm really late to the party here, so I'm stuck with the leftovers. Fortunately, at least one of these songs will come up in a future Fireball's Fantastic 500 post. (Of course, I'm not divulging which one or ones.)

To disillusion me one more time,
Whispering words of forever,

48. I'm not that kind of guy who can take a broken heart

58. Remembering the good times
From a portrait hung on high,
It's filled with so much color
And the laughter we left behind.

I made the choice, I was wrong, you were right.
Deep down inside I apologize.

BEFORE YOU WALK OUT OF MY LIFE, Monica

60. I'll be loungin' on the couch, just chillin' in my snuggie,
Flip to MTV so they can teach me how to Dougie.

THE LAZY SONG, Bruno Mars

62. As you're leaving, please, would you close the door?
And don't forget what I told you.
Just 'cause you're right that don't mean I'm wrong,
Another shoulder to cry upon.

YOUR LOVE, the Outfield

That's what I want.
Just you, sweet girl,
And not a front.

Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

So I guess it's safe to conclude that this song will be used for its title, because while Daryl Hall did write it (which I didn't know until just now), Paul Young was the only one to have a hit with it, and is most associated with the song...

It's weird because I always think of it as a Hall and Oates song and completely forget that Young had the hit.

It's a Philly-centric thing, I guess. I heard them sing the song first.

The title of this game is "Lyrics from A to Z", which seems to imply that there is an alphabetical theme... but we're making only 25 sets of matches, so one of the lesser letters (like X or Z) would have to be missed out if that's where this game was going.

"A to Z" also looks like the abbreviation for Arizona. Like with the letters, not every state would be used in this game if that were the theme.

The juxtaposition of "My Love" and "Your Love" on the list is very interesting, but probably irrelevant to the theme.

Nothing in the song titles jump out at me. I'm stumped.

With Pen In Hand-Vikki Carr. Going with this as the artist, due to the gender of the child in the lyrics. This also was the slightly more successful version nationally, but I am more familiar with the Billy Vera version that was the one our local Top 40 stations played. In that version, it was little Billy who was the child in question, and whether or not the custodial parent would be able to teach him how to do "manly" things.

That's funny, because the only version I"ve ever heard of this song was Bobby Goldsboro's. And in his version, the person is being asked to take good care of Johnny. So I looked it up, and Bobby Goldsboro wrote it. Also, apparently there's a version by someone named Dorothy Moore, and she also sang the "jenny" lyrics. So we'll have to keep her in mind, as well.

Unless there's a nifty word trick to this puzzle, there isn't much to use this song for other than those two words. I've tried to find a way to connect this to Mellow Yellow since there's a Donovan song in the game, but I'm coming up empty...
