"As Time Goes By..."
Lyrics & Music by Herman Hupfeld (1931)
Dooley Wilson as Sam played it in Casablanca (1942)
You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

"Rock Around the Clock"
Recorded by Bill Haley & The Comets (April 12, 1954)
played in the film The Blackboard Jungle (1955)
Lyrics: Max C. Freedman & Jimmy de Knight (1953 Myers Music)
One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock,
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, rock,
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, rock,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight.

"Somewhere in Time"
Music: Rachmaninoff "Rhapsody" On a Theme from Paganini Opera 43 Piano
from the movie Somewhere in Time
Somewhere in time, we met on timeless hills...
and in the evening midst we kissed, and time stood still

"Good Times" (1965)
The Rolling Stones (Cooke)
C'mon let the good times roll
We're gonna stay here to soothe our soul
It could take all night long

"Good Times, Bad Times" (1964)
The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger & Keith Richards)
There've been good times
There've been bad times
I have my share of hard times, too
But I lost my faith in the world
Honey, when I lost you

"Time Is on My Side" (1964)
The Rolling Stones (Meade)
Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

"Once Upon a Time" (1962)
Charles Strouse (Lyrics: Lee Adams)
from the Stage Musical All American
Once upon a time,
A girl with moonlight in her eyes,
Put her hand in mine,
And said she loved me so...
But that was once upon a time,
Very long ago!

"We're Not Here for a Long Time (We're Here for a Good Time)"
Performed by Huey Lewis and the News
Leave a message for those who call
We're out havin' us a ball
We're not here for a long time
We're here for a good time
