Name That Tune -( Answers)

This list of song titles is the answer to a quiz appearing at Verbicidal Tendencies. You may want to click on that link to view and try the quiz.

These song titles are listed in the order of their appearance in "Name That Tune." How many did you find? Most of the songs are from my era, the 1960s, with a few from the 70s. The artists provided are the ones I remember recording these songs. Many of the songs have been covered by other artists over the years, in fact some of these are covers themselves of even older versions.

Your score:

If you found 10 or less - not so good;
20+ fair;
30+ good;
40+ excellent;
50+ impressive;
if you found all 60 - you should be writing the blog quizzes.

I got 26 there, my fav song being the Procal Harem one, Whiter Shade of Pale. I might know more of these songs when I listen to them, but cannot remember the artist.
This was a great list of songs, it would be great to have them on CD.
LMAO at the last post too :) My pop would have loved it as he was into the horses big time, and into jokes too( wink)

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
