Hi Karen...Merry Christmas!!

I got here as quickly as I could. Fortunately there's one still available that I know.

Number 7... is "Everybody Plays The Fool" by The Main Ingredient. (It was also covered in the early 90's by Aaron Neville, but you're probably looking for the original artist, so that's why I listed the Main Ingredient.) :)

I have no clue on the other remaining ones, so I'll just have to go....and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!!

Hi, Jeff...and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!  :)

Your answer is correct (and it was indeed The Main Ingredient which I was looking for here)...but I'm quite sure there are others in here that you should know (from the 80's)... :D

Hi Karen...two near the top this time!

#1. 'After the Love Has Gone' - Earth, Wind & Fire
#6. 'Cherish' - Madonna

I thought I could clear the quiz up, but #22. still eludes me!  :-\\

(Which is why I didn't answer it within my first set of answers!)

You know, after looking at it again I realized that I had one word incorrect in the lyric...

...but I've fixed that now, and hopefully this last one won't elude you anymore!  :D

The song was a huge hit here in the U.S. (and I'd gather in the U.K. as well, as the singer is English)... :)

Oh, I know some of them (from the 80's), but the ones I know all too well have already been answered!

Now that there's one left, I have absolutely no clue on it. :-\\
