Hi, Karen... :)

You got 2 out of 3...

...I'm afraid that #19 is incorrect, as 'Cherry Pie' did not reach #1 on the charts...

Do you think these are too difficult?  ???

I thought that having only two 'key' words would make it a bit more challenging...(and perhaps tougher for people to 'google')...

#11. 'Every Breath You Take' - Police


Good job with that one, Paul!  :)

Some spring right out at you from first glance...and then some take a while to 'form'...

And 'challenging' it is!  :D

#7. 'Endless Love' - Diana Ross & Lionel Richie (got 'em the right way round this time!)
