Hi Indy!  :)

Okay....#2 and #26 are correct.  You have the right artists but wrong song title for #10, and #8 is incorrect...

Subject: Re: A New Hidden Theme Quiz

Written By: Tanya1976 on 12/18/04 at 5:12 pm

#1 Loverboy - Billy Ocean
#10 Yes, I'm Ready - Barbara Mason
#13 Rush, Rush - Paula Abdul (unfortunately I do know that song!)

Is the theme unrequited love?

Greetings, Tanya!  :)

Your answers are all correct, but I've already accepted the artists that IndyGent gave for #10 (you did have the song, so you'll get credit for that).

As for the theme... no, I'm afraid it's not 'unrequited love'.  Keep guessing!  ;)

I'll take a guess at the theme.

Do all of the song titles contain names of other bands?

Steam was the band that had the hit "Na Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)".
