I believe Rhonda (gemini61) beat you to #21, and I know #15 is not Rock Me Amadeus, 'cause that one's been answered already.

But I think I got another one:

Hi Charlie D!

#21 is correct, but I'm afraid that gemini61 has already answered that one.

And "Rock Me Amadeus" is on the quiz, but as #16...not  #15.  I'll allow it, as I know those numbers are very close together.  ;)

Jeff, I'd really appreciate it if you'd leave these things for me, the quizmaker, to take care of.  ???

#19 is actually "You're The First, The Last, My Everything"...but you're close enough that I'll let you have that one.  #30 is correct.

Hi, CF!
I've got one.
The answer of #27 must be "Donna" by Ritchie Valens.

By the way, I have a pretty rare? EP of the original version of "Rock And Roll Heaven" by Climax.
When I found it at a used record store in San Jose, I thought it should be truly attractive and
keep the romantic feeling of "Precious And Few".
But after hearing it, I understood why the record was not sold well..... :\'(

Hi there, tuontuin!  :)

That's interesting about the version of "Rock And Roll Heaven" that you have by Climax.  The only version of that song that I'm familiar with is by The Righteous Brothers.

And you are absolutely right about "Donna".  :)
