    Theme: Songs inspired by books.

    1) All She Wants to Do Is Dance (Don Henley) Danny Kortchmar was inspired by The Great Gatsby and The Ugly American.
    2) Crown of Creation (Jefferson Airplane) based on and even used some lyrics from the Chrysalis, also known as Re-birth, by John Wyndham.
    3) Return To Pooh Corner (Kenny Loggins) based on The House At Pooh Corner, by A A Milne.
    4)7 Chinese Brothers - R.E.M.(One, who has the ability to hold an ocean in his mouth (hence the line in the song "Seven Chinese brothers swallowing the ocean)
    5) The Ghost Of Tom Joad (Bruce Springsteen), based on The Grapes Of Wrath by John Steinbeck.

    BTW, we did a theme in late March, books in title or lyrics. Six book titles on that list. We may want to consider disqualifying them. Post 4935.

    Only 1 item (1984) overlaps...so far.

    How does that fit the theme?

    Same question for your changed post.

    Seriously, same question for your changed changed post.

    The theme is not means of transport, the theme is specifically commuting.
