Gordon Lightfoot Sang a song About a boat That sank in the lake At the break Of the morning, A Cat named Stevens Found a faith He could believe in And Joan Baez I never listened To too much jazz, But hippie songs Could be heard In our pad Eddie Rabbitt sang About how much He loved a rainy night, Abba, Devo, Benatar Were there day John Lennon died, Mr. Springsteen said He had a hungry heart Grover Washington Was happy on the day He topped the charts These are the songs
[Chorus] These are my heart songs They never feel wrong And when I wake For goodness sake These are the songs I keep singin'
Quiet Riot got me started With the bangin' on my head Iron Maiden, Judas Priest And Slayer Taught me how to shred I gotta admit though Sometimes I would listen To the radio Debbie Gibson Tell me that you think We're all alone Michael Jackson's In the mirror I've gotta have faith If I wanna see clear Never gonna give you up Wish me love Or wishing well It takes two to make A thing go right If the Fresh Prince Starts a fight Don't you worry For too long 'Cause you know These are the songs
Back in 1991 I wasn't havin' any fun Till my roommate said "Come on and put A brand new record on" Had a baby on it He was naked on it Then I heard the chords That broke the chains I had upon me Got together with my bros In some rehearsal studios Then we played Our first rock show And watched the fan base Start to grow Signed the deal that gave The dough to make A record of our own The song come On the radio Now people go This is the song
[Repeat x4] These are the songs I keep singing

"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
