Er...I'm afraid I overlooked one of your answers, Henk...and #5 isn't a Phil Collins song... :-\\

Hi Karen! I just got here as quickly as I could.

Fortunately I know #9: "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin. (For the record, I even heard it on the radio about three hours ago.)

And everytime I hear that line, it sounds to me like "Julio Iglesias saw you" (even though I know that's not right, lol). ;D

Oh, so they were #1s in the U.S. and one other specific country?

I give up... Henk's probably right. I was thinking the UK too, but Henk said it first.
