Welcome to The "Simply the Best" Lyrics Quiz

The following 50 lyrics are from Number 1 songs from between 1965 and 1991 (per Joel Whitburn), with at least one song from each year. All song titles reached Number 1 on the Billboard charts. Lyrics are listed alphabetically by song title, and the clues are short since they were all # 1's, and should be well known. Any parentheses in song titles should be ignored in terms of alphabetization, and 'The's' and 'A's' appear as they would in the alphabet. You need to identify the Song title and artist for each song, 10 points for each, for a total of 1000 possible points.
