My 16 year old daughter answered this one ... she thought it was Flashdance by Deep Dish ???  She's gone off to school now so I'll have to wait til 4 o'clock.  I suppose I could ring her :D

She's actually semi-right. Flashdance by Deepdish is the cover/sample - the original is off the Flashdance soundtrack! I guess that's why Deepdish called it 'Flashdance'.

Let me try this...from your clues I gather the following:

The artist for #4 has to be Natalie Imbruglia. Lyrics lead me to believe that it could be Wishing I Was There. ???

The artist for #13 is Joe Jackson (don't know what song, though)
The artist for #15 is Oasis (another blank on the song)

Let's hope I got some of them right... :-\\

Modified to remove some really stupid answers( :- Idlewild, but it's by a Dutch band called Here's Johnny. You can't possibly be referring to that, can you...? :-\\

Your're right on the artists...but wrong on the 'Idlewild' as being the song title, although you're one step closer - is that makes sense!!  So nope, not a fan of the Dutch band!!
