    * Jim Croce is indeed one of the artists that did this song.

    1. This is a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
    Two young lovers with nothin' better to do
    Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
    And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose

    2. Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
    You play the guitar on the MTV
    That ain't workin' that's the way you do it

    3. I work all night, I work all day,
    to pay the bills I have to pay
    Ain't it sad
    And still there never seems to be
    a single penny left for me
    That's too bad
    In my dreams I have a plan
    If I got me a wealthy man
    I wouldn't have to work at all,
    I'd fool around and have a ball

    Take the Money and Run by the Steve Miller Band.

    And I actually knew song 3 but didn't get it by the lyrics. Man...I'm getting killed on points while at work. :(

    :D Well that's the disadvantage to having a job. The advantage is the steady paycheck.

    Here's the chorus, it should make it easy. The triple dots replace lines which are the title of the song or words which are part of the title.

    3. ...
    Must be funny
    In the rich man's world
    ...
    Always sunny
    In the rich man's world
    Aha-ahaaa
    All the things I could do
    If I had a little ...
    It's a rich man's world

    Can I guess it now? I didn't get it from the first verse, but I surely would've gotten it from the chorus. I know I cheated, but I would have gotten it from this.

    Go ahead. By now the people who are interested in trying have had a fair chance to guess it.

    Here's a bonus one if anyone is interested


    Tailored suits, chauffered cars
    Fine hotels and big cigars
    Up for grabs, up for a price
    Where the red hot girls keep on dancing through the night
    The claim is on you
    The sights are on me
    So what do you do
    That's guaranteed
    Hey little girl, you want it all
    The furs, the diamonds, the painting on the wall

    Since the title is repeated, do I get repeating points?
    Money Money Money by Abba.

    Since I'll be at work and will likely miss out on a round or 2, let me try to scam some more extra credit here. This song is currently being featured on Broadway in the show Mamma Mia, a play based on the music of Abba. Interesting concept, no? From what I hear, it's actually doing quite well on Broadway.

    Money Talks by AC/DC.
    I even thought about using the Floyd song as another bonus, but that'd probably be too easy.

    * Spider-Fett for coming up with another song for the theme
    ** kbomb for getting the song title and artists for the Spider-Fett's addition to the category.

    Here's the new set folks, you should recognize all the groups even if you don't recognize the song:

    1. Lying beside you, here in the dark
    Feeling your heartbeat with mine
    Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
    How could our love be so blind
    We sailed on together
    We drifted apart
    And here you are, by my side

    2. All day long I hear my telephone ring
    Friends calling giving their advice
    From the boy I love
    I should break away
    'Cause heartaches he'll bring one day

    3. You want commitment
    Take a look into these eyes
    They burn with a fire,
    Just for you now
    Until the end of time
    I would do anything
    I'd beg, I'd steal, I'd die

    I didn't know any of these. I won't even guess the theme because I had to cheat to even find that. However, I will include another song with the same theme.

    I keep looking for something I can't get
    Broken hearts lie all around me,
    and I don't see an easy way out of this
    Her diary, it sits on the bedside table
    The curtains are closed, the cat's in the cradle
    Who would've thought that a boy like me could come to this.

    Good! That should mean he'll stop harrising the game. Strange that he can't read a sig line and know the difference between a Lady and a Man.

    1. So now I come to you with _._._._ - _._._._
    Nothing to hide, believe what I say
    So here I am, with _._._._ - _._._._
    Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
    _._._._ - _._._._

    2. I lost him once through friends advice
    But it's not gonna happen twice
    'Cause all advice ever's gotten me
    Was many long and sleepless nights

    3. Baby I want you like the roses
    Want the rain
    You know I need you
    Like a poet needs the pain
    I would give anything
    My blood my love my life
    If you were _._ - _._._._._ - _._._._ tonight

    Red, since I'm going to work (and you usually go through a few games while I'm gone), I was going to PM you the title and artist of the song I'd posted, since you seem to give out all the points, anyway. You seem to have PMs and email disabled. Do you know the song, in case anyone guesses?

    Whoops didn't realize you'ld added another song to the original poll. My apologies. Don't recognize it off hand. Do you have time for another verse/chorus before work?

    Here's verse 2:

    Is there any just cause for feeling like this
    On the surface I'm a name on a list
    I try to be discreet, but then blow it again.
    I've lost and found, it's my final mistake.
    She's loving by proxy, no give and all take
    'Cause I've been thrilled to fantasy one too many times.

    Ahhh it's song 4 of the new theme because you didn't know the others. Yes I recognize it. Weren't they a one hit wonder? *tapping while trying to figure out if they had other hits*
