Good morning, Karen!

#5 is Roy Orbison, with "You Got It."
#8 is Oasis, with "Champagne Supernova."

And that's all that I can figure out now. I know #7, but it appears that somebody beat me to it. :-[

Tough quiz CF!  My only contribution is:

13. Stay The Night by The Late Cars Bassist Benjamin Orr-1986


That is correct, Mark.  I always preferred Benjamin Orr's voice to Ric Ocasek's.  He is sadly missed.  :(

Your answer is correct, and I couldn't agree with you more about them being underrated.  I love those guys!

BTW, take another look at #17.  I'm pretty sure you know this song, as I've seen you list in in some of the games threads.  :)

OK, way to drive me insane!  :D  I figured it was OMD, but I couldn't figure out which song it was.  At last, I think I've got it...

17.  (Forever) Live and Die - OMD

I can go on with life now!  Once again, great job on the quiz!  ;D

#20. 'Breaking - aka There's No Stopping Us' - Ollie & Jerry
