16/22. I could hear all of the ones I missed in my head, I just couldn't think of the artists. Not bad for an '80s kid, though. :D I love the "oldies"!

57 seconds. If I hadn't of stumbled my fingers typing Jefferson Airplane and Rolling Stones, it might have been a bit shorter. Good quiz, but do you have anything a bit more challenging? How about one or more authors of these same songs? or The lead singer(s)?

Could we get a little spelling mercy for Procol Harum? For some reason, I kept using 'Procul' and having the 'Harum' part right wasn't enough to get the point.

could we get a couple of alternate spellings of Led Zeppelin I always forget the second e, and if you're going to accept "stones" for rolling stones or bowie for david bowie I think I should be forgiven for missing an e

Just being pedantic here but I think the song is "The Sound of Silence", the subsequent album was called "Sounds of Silence".

Perhaps you should enter a caveat that you'll only accept the most famous version of a song? As mentioned, there are earlier, albeit much less famous, versions of a couple of these songs. IN fact, there's a Quiz Idea: Songs where the cover versions eclipsed their original versions!

Thinking I might do well I had no expectation of getting them all. Though I always have trouble spelling it I'm pretty sure this is the first time I ever tried 'Led Leppelin'.

For "Blowin' In The Wind" I entered "Peter, Paul & Mary" because when you compare the relative Billboard Top 100 lists theirs hit #2 in the nation. Granted, we (oldsters, anyway) are fully aware that Bob Dylan wrote it but as a recorded version his didn't make the Billboard Top 100 at all. Not complaining, because my entry was accepted, even though the answer showed Dylan's name.
