Well Karen, I'm sort of embarrassed to admit that the only one leaping out at me is...

#10 "Can't Smile Without You" - Barry Manilow

I s'pose I shouldn't be embarrassed, as I get older I have to concede Bazza is a great songwriter and showman.

Cool quiz Karen :)

3 | Even the Nights Are Better - Air Supply

I recognize #2, but I know two different hits with that exact same lyric, both which saw success in the States, so for a random guess, would the one you seek be "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" by Christopher Cross?

Some tough ones left insfar as they're not instantly 'recognisable'...

#23. 'Tin Man' - America
