Hi Phylo!  :)

You are correct on both.

I think you're right about "Time For Me To Fly" being late-70's.  For some reason I'd always thought it was from like '80 or '81... :-[

Hi Jeff!

Yes, you've identified the right artist!

I knew that would be pretty obvious from the clues I put down.

Let's face it...how many other celebs have been caught in that position...?!

Anyway...he was singing 'A Different Corner' (#6.)

The artist to #2. must be Boz Scaggs, but what he's singing I don't know (I lost track of him after 1980...)

At least I know 1, got here kinda late.  ::)

4. Eddie Mahoney, "Endless Nights"

I'll try to get back to you on the others.

That's correct, Paul!  :)

Yep, that'd be the artist!

I believe this was his last Top 40 hit...real good song, if you ask me.  Maybe somebody else will know the name of it...
