Sorry Gobo, but 4 & 10 are incorrect. Great job on the others. And yes, you will definitely know the #2 song. (That doesn't sound right.)

So we're still looking for 2, 4 & 10.

Huh. I would've guessed "Allison" as well, but I guess that was before 1989 and it never made the top 40.

#10 is "Cecilia".

2 = Hey There, Delilah (?)

I think? Maybe?

Oh man, I just looked up 4 because it was driving me nuts. I should've known!

Someone will get it.
