NY Times Puzzle - Thursday, May 17,2012

Theme: Songs whose titles are spelled out in the lyrics

The clues for the three 7-letter song titles are provided with the clues to other answers. The titles are spelled out in the next line of un-numbered squares.

20A. Response to a polite refusal/(next line) It’s spelled out in a Tammy Wynette hit.
Answer to 20A. I insist Song title: Divorce

31A. What a walk in the ballpark will get you/(next line) It’s spelled out in an Aretha Franklin hit.
Answer to 31A. One base Song title: Respect

42A. Young partner/(next line) It’s spelled out in a Travis Tritt hit.
Answer to 42A. Ernst Song title: Trouble

I’m familiar with the Aretha Franklin song.

However, I don’t follow Country & Western music, so I’d never heard of either of the other two songs. Now, via YouTube, I have.
