    $\begingroup$ Ah yes, the popular hit "Balloon Shoes". $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Dec 9 '16 at 20:42
  • $\begingroup$ @IanMacDonald, Definitely a classic. Let's not forget that great ballad "Bubble Toes" either... $\endgroup$ – John Dec 9 '16 at 22:56
  • $\begingroup$ @IanMacDonald TBH "balloon shoes" is the closest anyone has been so far $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Dec 10 '16 at 3:48
  • $\begingroup$ @RichardRoe hope you don't mind the edit; imgur and pinterest are both blocked on my network so all I could see was a lot of blank space. $\endgroup$ – user812786 Dec 13 '16 at 17:05

    $\begingroup$ Sorry, wasn't checking. Yeah, such long sandwiches are sometimes known as 'heroes' or 'submarines' in the U.S. I think. I'm not actually from there so cannot confirm how common this is. $\endgroup$ – Xenocacia Dec 9 '16 at 8:15

    $\begingroup$ The first three are correct. I walk the line is the correct answer for four. Five is not correct. The last one is a bit of a stretch. I might start adding hints tomorrow. $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Dec 9 '16 at 8:24

    $\begingroup$ #5 - These Boots are Made for Walking? or Goody Two Shoes. I tend to think it is the Nancy Sinatra song, since it is more in the time frame of the other four songs.... $\endgroup$ – APrough Dec 9 '16 at 13:08

What about...

1. Sweet home Alabama
2. Yellow submarine
3. Blowin' in the wind
4. I walk the line
5. Walk on water

What I think the last picture (5) is:

Jesus shoes, shoes invented to walk on water.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, #5 is not it $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Dec 9 '16 at 16:00
