Hi Doc! You've done a great job! 8)

Here's what I think:

#8: Double barrel by Dave & Ansil Collins

#10: Dreams by Fleetwood Mac

#19: Chicago by Graham Nash (odd that it should be a non-American coming up with that one!)

And just to make sure everybody understands: Doc hasn't filled be in on the answers. I can assure you, I know as little as everyone else.

Hi Doc

In reference to your other current quiz, is #2 Don't Lose My Number by Phil Collins?

Ooh, also just spotted #13 which must be "Careless Whisper" by George Michael.

That has already been tried, but it isn't right.

The only option left for this one is Crazy on you by Heart. ???

You got the last two right, Indy. I had a hunch that #9 would be tricky.
But #7, Vacation? Come on, man. C or D, you know better. But just what IS a vacation?

Right title but wrong song, loki. Who else had a song named "Carrie" (but no Anne)?

If I do know any better on #7, I could tell you. Right now I'm drawing a complete blank, except for starting with C or D. :-\\
But I believe 24 is "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?- by Rod Stewart.

Just noticed the limit's actually five, so I'll have another go:

#7: Couple days off - Huey Lewis & the News

Add that to my score and it should be five in total (I notice it still says three atm... ;))

Titlewise, you're very close. But NJ is actually the artist on another clue. I'll revise #6 to avoid more confusion. Keep trying!

Hey, where is everyone? 4 days and not a single Cryptiquiz is touched?
All right, I'm setting a deadline of Wednesday Midnight. So if anyone can nail the last four, at least you can tie FD for the top score. I don't know what we'll do for a tiebreaker, though. Think hard, now!
