quizzical: 70's

It's been a while since I've done a music quiz here and since this one appeared in my inbox today. I'll post it here and we can all answer together.

Topic: the 70's. This is good for some of you errr..older people who complain when I do too much 80's stuff. No artist appears twice. I do have a link to the answers, but I'm not looking. Please copy and paste the lyric/number when answering so we don't have to scroll up all the time. Also, try to take a look at which ones have been answered.

[Update: I screwed it up, but it's all better now]

16. Could It Be I'm Falling In Love - The Spinners
101. Artist is The Hughs Corporation
181. New York, New York. Frankie!
205. Everybody Plays The Fool (Sometimes)

Looks like your readers have gotten most of these. Filling in a few gaps that no one has gotten yet...

14. "My motto's always been 'When it's right, it's right', why wait until the middle of a cold, dark night?" - A lot got that it was "Afternoon Delight," but no one got the band: the Starland Vocal Band.
79. "I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night." - "Couldn't Get It Right" - Climax Blues Band
93. "Well, I heard Mr. Young sing about us (should be "her"). Well, I heard ol' Neil put her down." - A lot of people got that this was "Sweet Home Alabama," but no one bothered to identify the artist, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
120. "Those kicks were fast as lightning. In fact, it was a little bit frightening." - Almost everyone got that this was "Kung Fu Fighting," but nobody remembered Carl Douglas.
128. "Darling, if you want me to love, love only you, then love only me." - Someone got Seals & Croft. The song is "Get Closer."
136. "I wonder how you're feeling. There's ringing in my ears." - Someone got the artist, Peter Frampton. The song is "Show Me the Way."
140. "I must've been through about a million girls. I love 'em and I leave 'em alone." - Some got the song, "Fooled Around and Fell in Love." The artist is Elvin Bishop.
143. "We're coming to your town, we'll help you party down." - A couple got that this was "We're an American Band," but the band is not the Guess Who or Brownsville Station. It's Grand Funk Railroad.
170. "�.runnin' wild and lookin' pretty." - I probably wouldn't have gotten this one, but someone identified the song, "Hot Child in the City." The artist is another one-hit wonder, Nick Gilder.
178. "�grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves." - This is the Coke commercial song, "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing." I don't know who the hell did it though.
186. "Oh, they say, she died one winter - when there came a killing frost." - Some got "Wildfire," none got Michael Martin Murphy.
190. "You are the sun, I am the moon, you are the words, I am the tune." - Neil Diamond, "Play Me"
195. "And one thin dime won't even shine your shoes." - "On Broadway" - George Benson

Thanks for a fun time and thanks for reminding me how old I am.
