It seems these days that to get played on the radio, a record has to be either all or part spoken word. It wasn't that way before the '90s. The following are spoken word quotes from songs that hit the charts before the age of rap. The songs are mostly sung...but these little spoken parts sometimes provided a memorable hook for the song. Can you remember in which songs they occurred?
1."You know, someone said the world's a stage and each must play a part"
2. "Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn!"
3. "Once upon a time, not so long ago"
4. "Okay, so you're heartbroken, sittin' around mopin', cryin', you say you're even thinkin' about dyin? Well, before you do anything rash, dig this"
5. "Just look over your shoulders, honey! Ooh!"
6. "Indians scattered on dawn's highway, bleeding, ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind"
7. "Awww, move over, Rover, and let Jimi take over!"
8. "All abooooooooooooard!"
9. "Gunter glieben glauchen globen"
10. "But...but...but...I'm afraid of water!"
11. "Are you ready, Steve? Uh huh. Andy? Yeah. Mick? O.K. All right fellas, let's go!"
12. "Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!"
13. "What we're gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time"
14. "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life"
15. "Bob Mayo on the keyboards, Bob Mayo"
16. "Ahh, get down, mama, I got to have me a woman, heh heh heh heh heeeeh"
17."You know, I'm no different from anybody else. Start and end each night. It gets real lonely when you're by yourself."
Bonus: "Meanwhile, I'm still thinking" (two answers, you give me both)
Super Duper Bonus: "Whooh!"
