A Song in My Heart (It Should've Stayed There): The Song Title Game

Here’s a little game I’ve been playing with my brain. I got the idea from this page of Between Failures where some of the characters play the same game using movie titles.

Link as many song titles together as possible, matching the last word of the song title with the first word of the next song title.
  1. You need song title and you must identify an artist.
  2. Songs must be songs that you know and/or part of your personal music collection. No Googling all songs that end with “love” and all songs that begin with “love.” You’re on the honor system. (If challenged or unsure of a title or artist, you may look it up, but it has to be a song you thought of on your own.)
  3. You may link a singular word with a plural, compound word, or longer word that contains the word in question. For example:
    a.   “Dust in the Wind” to “Winds of Change”
    b.   “Love the One You’re With” to “Within You Without You.”
    c.   Technically, “Blue Bayou” to “Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher” would be legal, but come on. Really?
    On the other hand, I just went from “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” to “Funeral for a Friend,” so, whatever.
  4. More than one word is okay too, e.g., “Play the Game” to “The Game of Love.”
  5. Variations or covers of the same song do not count as separate songs.
  6. Different songs with the same title are legal; however, you may not list them consecutively (e.g., “Crazy,” “Crazy,” and “Crazy” by Patsy Cline, Seal, and Aerosmith doesn’t give you three in a row).
Here's the list I've come up with so far:
