Hiya Rhonda!  Thanks for the nice compliment!  :)

All of your answers are correct, though you left out Smokey's backing band The Miracles on #9.  ;)

Good evening, Karen!

#4 is "Too Hot" by Kool and the Gang.
#8...I think that's "Take Your Time, Do It Right" by the SOS Band. :)

By the way...are you posting an "S" artists lyric quiz anytime soon? ???

Hi there, Jeff!  :)

Your answers are both spot-on!

Oh, and to answer your question...I will be posting the 'S' artists quiz in the next day or two.  I'd had this one and the mixed bag quiz in the works for a while and wanted to get them up.  And besides, it provides a nice little 'departure' from the long alphabetical series... ;)

#10-Do You Know Where you are Going to (Theme from Mahogany)- Diana Ross
#11-They Never Heard of Love-Tracy Ullman (but I don't know if this is R&B-so I'm not too sure if this is right-but the lyrics do match).

Hi Cat!  :)

#10 is correct, but I'm afraid that #11 is not the song/artist I had in mind...

Hi Brat.  That is correct, but I will only be able to give you partial credit since I need the artist as well.  :)

That's another two to your credit, Paul.  :)

For a moment there I thought you were gonna 'clean up'.

I've got this sickening feeling that I know what this is...

Bear with me a couple of minutes while I play the CD (this is not gonna be pretty...!)

MODIFIED AFTER MILD RETCHING...

#13. (Cough...splutter...gasp...) 'Always' - Atlantic Starr
(Strange how a song I've never really cared much for, is always lurking somewhere in the back of my mind...Is it psychological? Do I really (gulp!) like the thing...?!!)

I think #1 was "September" by Earth, Wind, and Fire
The band in #6 was Champaign, but I can't think of the title now.

Hi Indy!

#1 is correct, and you get a half credit for knowing the artist for #6.  :)

Hi Tanya!

That is correct.  Indy already identified the artist, so you will get credit for the song title.  :)
