[Revolutionary Puzzle] Duel Chorus

Duel Chorus

Just like the white-winged dove,
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth.
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way
Only words can help me find you.
There were copper-bottom tympani in horse platoons, thundering, thundering, all along the way,
Hard as a rock from when she touched me.
You just slip out the back, Jack; make a new plan, Stan; you don't need to be coy, Roy, just listen to me,
So I cross my heart and I hope to die.
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors:
Your eyes are the size of the moon,
So we kicked them in the balls and then they cried,
On our way back home.

UTENA: I don't really listen to a lot of music...
ANTHY: There are twelve lyrics here and twelve spaces, Miss Utena.  Perhaps we're to use one letter from each lyric?
UTENA: But how do we figure out which letter?  Thinking about it makes my brain hurt.
ANTHY: Miss Utena, counting makes your brain hurt.
UTENA: Well, maybe so, but still!  Why do some of these lines sound familiar, anyway?

Re: [Revolutionary Puzzle] Duel Chorus

I sort of hesitated with responding to this because I thought that it was the final puzzle, but I'm going to take a crack at this.
Taking "lyrics" in mind, I decided to look up the songs connected to the phrases. I got:
1. Edge of Seventeen ( Stevie Nicks )
2. Thirty-Three ( The Smashing Pumpkins )
3. Four Strong Winds ( Neil Young )
4. Three Hits ( Indigo Girls )
5. Seventy-Six Trombones ( from The Music Man )
6. Shawty is a Ten ( The Dream )
7. Fifty Ways to Leave your Lover ( Paul Simon )
8. Fifteen ( Taylor Swift )
9. Nine in the Afternoon ( Panic! At the Disco )
10. The Glorious Epic of Three Men Who are Awesome ( The Axis of Awesome )
11. The Two of Us ( The Beatles )
There's a definite pattern here, namely the numbers. So if you count the number featured in the song title, I figured, you would get a letter.

Just like the white-winged dove,
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth.

On our way back home.

or...
Wallace Shawn.
Hopefully this is close to the answer.
