Very, very good guess with #11., Henk...but sadly, not right...

13) Yesterday - Beatles
23) Sister Christian - Night Ranger

All correct, AnnieB...but you were just beaten to the first two...

However, you do have the correct song for #10...

Written By: Paul on 01/31/06 at 1:24 pm


Sorry :(

Since it looks like I picked the wrong Marley tune (could hear his voice, but not connect the lyrics to anything)... I'll go ahead and take another half...

11. "Both Sides Now" was originally Joni Mitchell and became a hit as performed by Judy Collins


'Tis a wonderful song (and with all the correct details...)

...but it's not the right one! Sorry!

In actual fact Karen, I'm gonna give tomario that...

Simply because, it's actually right next door (#18.)...

My guess is tomario must have had a 'slip' on the keyboard...it happens to the best of us!

So, yes tomario...well done!
