Both are correct, although the proper title for #19 is simply "Pink Houses".

You're probably right about the release date, Mark.  I compiled my list mainly from Billboard's Hot 100 for that year.

# 4  sounds a lot like "Let Me Be There" by Olivia Newton-John, form the early days when she sung country  :P

Ah! The clue to #8. has registered something in my grey matter...

In actual fact, I'm sure it's one of those songs you kindly 'donated' to me, Karen...

Let me just find the thing and have another listen...
