I think I got the wrong country song, it keeps playing over and over in my head, I just have to get to the chorus to figure out what the heck it is.  ;D

18.  I'll still be loving you? - Restless Heart (I always get Little Texas and Restless Heart mixed up in my head - since I loved them both)

Hi there Karen... I know I missed this one; that's mostly because I was so busy studying at the time you posted it (actually I was trying to finish a lab project). But I think I can take a stab at one of them...

#5. I think I can tell from your clue that the band is probably Hall & Oates. But I can't place the song. :-\\
If I'm right, will I get half credit?

So they're Canadian then... that should help narrow it down.

There are many bands from the 1980s that are Canadian...but I don't know specifically where they all hail from! Good luck to whoever can figure this out. ;)


I would try, but my mind is warped right now from studying...so I'll leave the last item for someone who does know the band and/or song.
