I'm sorry Phil, but that is not the one I had in mind here... :-\\

'Short People' was not a number one hit in the U.S.

As we're talking 70's music here, it'd have to be Don McLean... ;)

These two are correct, Karen... :)

That song is from the 60's, so I'm afraid it's not the right one for this quiz... :-\\

Hi Karen ... I'm afraid I've only spotted this one very very late in the day.

So it's too late for me to have any real impact here .. there can be no denying.  If only I could even get one of these right..  :-6. no denying

Hiya Karen!

#20 "knee-high" - this phrase certainly appears in the old Val Doonican hit "Walk Tall" but somehow I don't think that Val ever made it to the top of the US charts???

Hi again, Phil...

That one would be correct, but I'm afraid Gaylon's beaten you to it... :-\\

Hey there, Graham!  :)

Good effort, but I'm afraid it's not what I was looking for... :-\\

I will say that the song was a big hit in 1975...and that the artist is a native of your country, if that helps!  ;)
