15. Wisconsin (Gordon Lightfoot, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, which will be in my head all night now...)

21. Hmm.  I'll gamble it's a misheard lyric for Huey Lewis' Heart of Rock and Roll?  (The heart of rock and roll is still beatin' -- in Cleveland! Detroit!)  Or in whatever city they're playing live.

26. L.A. (Sammy Hagar, I Can't Drive 55)

The George Strait or Willie Nelson songs. I know country music as much as I know about great female midget Luxembourg comedians from the 1890s.  :D
