Quiz Description

Okay, I made an attempt at doing a "Top 40 Songs From Lyrics" quiz, with a special mystery theme. (Not actually mysterious.) Upon finishing, I realized that the mystery theme might not have resulted in an enjoyable game, and shelved it. But I don't think there's any way to fix it, and it's possible some people will enjoy this rather... alien... attempt, so I'm going to give it a try. But no hard feelings on my part if it's not your thing. Anyway, given a quote from a song that has broken the Top 40, name the song. Sounds straightforward, right?
