Missed two.
Really thought #12 was 50's Girl Group hit and thought it was ANOTHER "Venus."

Missed 12 and somehow missed The Chipmunks.

I've never heard of Babe, I thought Venus was I'm Your Venus I'm Your Fire At Your Desire, and I thought that Knock on Wood was the older one I hated disco music. And I had no idea when The Chipmunk Song came out.
BABE was a #1 hit for a band out of Chicago "STYX"

Now I have the song "Babe" running through my head and it won't go away.

Well, that beats the "Facts of Life" theme song, which sometimes curses me.

DAMN… I was rolling through until… number 15! I was thinking of Shocking Blue's Venus.

Same here.
Just be glad you weren't really off, and the version that first came to mind, was the cover by BANANARAMA! {Which definitely would have been wrong for this quiz, seeing as it came out in the 80's.}

12/15! missed 7, 14 and 15! In the case of the last song, I thought it was Shocking Blue and not Frankie Avalon, 2 very different songs with the same title!!!
PS Although the Shocking Blue song was released in 1969, it didn't get to Number 1 until early 1970! Nevertheless, I think it was close enough to confuse people, so next time include titles AND artists, METV!!!

I just checked and Shocking Blue's "Venus" did hit number one… but not until February of 1970.

Like I said it was close, so close that anyone who got it wrong deserves a Mulligan! Yes, I do know the difference between "Venus if you will..." and "Venus was her name..."!
15/15! I definitely would have been very upset with myself if I had missed #14. Styx was a local band who made it really really big, plus I was also {still do like their music. Them, and another local band who done good: Chicago.} remembering in High School, I knew a girl who's older brother knew the members of Styx! I thought that was so cool! From what I know, when somebody says they know members of a band, its's usually members of some local band who has yet to hit it big, or they are only known around the area. When I knew her, Styx had already hit it big!
STYX is an ultimate classic!! Their kind of music never gets old...
