Hi Luke!  :)

All others are correct!

Hi there karen...I got here as soon as I could. I've been rather busy taking down Christmas decorations today that I haven't had time to be on the computer. But I think I can salvage one:

#14, "Endless Love" by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross.

The other unanswered ones, I am stumped on.

Hi John!  :)

They're all 70's and 80's songs here, Jeff, so I hope one or two more pop out at you!

Well I don't know a great deal of 70s pop songs, and most of the 80s stuff I know of is in the "new wave" category...but I do know some soft-pop songs that came out during that time. Perhaps I'll think of one or more. But I wanted to claim that one before someone else beat me to it.

We still have more Christmas decorations to put away, though!

Yes, Jeff...putting away Christmas decorations is a big job indeed!

I hope you can come up with more on this quiz...there are a couple more 80's tunes in the mix!  :)

Aloha Karen!

I think #27 is "Torn Between Two Lovers" by Mary MacDonald.

It was on the radio a couple of months ago, I remember thinking then that the lyrics were a bit "adult" as my middle daughter (aged 9) was listening at the same time as me!

Aloha Graham!  :)

That is definitely the song (though you're slightly off with the artist's last name...it should be MacGregor instead of MacDonald, but close enough!)...

I've always liked the song, but as you said it's very adult...

23. "Sometimes I fly like an eagle"
(HINT: The artist who did this song had numerous U.S. hits in the 1970's.  Sadly, he died in a plane crash about 9 years ago.)


I can't place the song, but you're talking about John Denver.
