the first two contain lyrics tha later became 80's new wave titles, but I'm not sure about the Benatar

1. Golden Earring, "Twilight Zone" -> "Destination Unknown"

2. David Bowie, "Ashes to Ashes" -> "Major Tom"

3. Pat Benatar, "Love Is a Battlefield" -> "?"

I'd never made the "Twilight Zone" - "Destination Unknown" connection, but that's a great observation.  Unfortunately, it's not what I was looking for.  :)

is it something specific to the lyrics or not?

Not the lyrics per se, but the approach to singing them.

And none of them have been in Cliff Clavin's kitchen, either.  But your answer, while true, is not what I was going for.  Something a little more uncommon.  :)

Would it help if I said ABBA's "Knowing Me, Knowing You" would fit as well?

The answer was:

Songs where a section is sung with a spoken echo.

"It's 2am (It's 2am)"

"I've never done good things (I've never done good things) ..."

"We are young (we are young) / Heartache to heartache (Heartache to heartache) ..."

That's a good one, Joe.  I never had a chance to dig up the songs & listen to them all.

OK, here's a new one, since I'm insomniacal tonight:

1. Earth, Wind & Fire, "Shining Star"

2. Jefferson Airplane, "Crown of Creation"

3. Ray, Goodman & Brown, "Special Lady"

But let's make it more fun: If you know it, rather than posting the answer, post another song that would fit the set.

I'm guessing songs with brief a cappella segments; I'm too lazy to think of three more.
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Close enough; I was going for "Songs That End With A Capella Segments."
