TT#28: Song Snippets-- Can you guess?

Thirteen Things frommomhuebert

Today's list is thirteen snippets from (mostly) old songs that sometimes run through my head at odd moments. Can you guess what songs they're from, and who sang them?

It might help you to know that I graduated from high school in 1980.

Then again, it might not. Tomorrow I'll post as much as I know of the answers.

1. "ninety-nine dreams I have had"

2. "money, money, money"

3. "please, mister, please"

4. "aye, calypso"

5. "don't be a hero"

6. "too young for love they told her"

7. "how long do you wanna be loved?"

8. "you can check out any time you like"

9. "took two shots, got no ducks"

10. "songs that make the young girls cry"

11. "you don't ever laugh like you used to"

12. "baby why don't we go"

13. "you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'"

I recognize "Hotel California." The song always reminds me of a story my best friend's mother tells about how they stayed at the real Hotel California and what a run down creepy place it was. Happy TT.

These are total guesses:

2. "Money, Money, Money" by ABBA
3. "Please, Mr. Please" by Olivia Newton-John
4. "Calypso" by John Denver
5. "Billy, Don't Be A Hero" by Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods

Well, since I read the next post first, I know the answers to these, but how did I miss this TT? and only 2 comments? I am horrible with remembering song names, and generally haven't a clue who the artist is. I am sorry some of them are stuck in your head. I get that sometimes and just wish there was an OFF switch!
