Oh, man!  So many of these are ringing bells all over the place, but I can't quite catch hold of them.  Anyway, here are my answers (or guesses, as the case may be):

#15 Georgia On My Mind, Ray Charles

#20 Lightening Strikes, Lou Christy

#28 Danny's Song, Anne Murray

#30 Codachrome, Paul Simon

#31 Downtown, Petula Clark

And I think I have the hidden theme: all the artists' last names can also be first names?

#33 Sorry, Brenda Lee

Way to go, Hereauntsis!  You got the songs and you got the theme!  8)

BTW, the proper title for #33 is "I'm Sorry".  :)
