Weekly Puzzles #6 - Music Edition (Part 2) - Song Titles

RULES


There are three puzzles, each sets of seven clues. On the first day, I'll release one clue for each puzzle. The three puzzles range from easy to hard and you have to find the thing that connects the clues. If you think that you know the answer, put it in the comments and I'll tell you if you're right. If you want to figure the puzzles out yourself, don't open the comments. This is for fun. Clues will be added around 5:00 PM UTC/12:00 PM EST/9:00 AM Pacific daily. You can guess once after each clue is added and all guesses after that will be ignored.
