9. dave matthews ?
14 ani, but it was already guessed

I feel like I know more but it's not coming to me,

Seeking Solace said...

All correct. And I did Ani just for you, Rented Life.

Kai said...

10 is Eric Clapton If I Could....that song always made me cry.

Seeking Solace said...

Rented Life: DMB is right but which song???

Kai: Yep, it's Clapton, but wrong title.

Anonymous said...

#1, I know the band but couldn't think of the title....

16: Sunshine of your Love, Cream
17: Nobody Told Me, John Lennon
20: Blinded by the Light, Bruce Springsteen
23: Hello It's Me, Todd Rundgren

For the record? We *so* have similar taste. They've already been guessed, but I knew #7, 14, & 25 too. I love when you do this meme. :)
