There are still three entirely unrecognized songs on the list, but I'm guessing people aren't going to get them, so here's the final list, with scores!

I think next time around, I'll have to grant additional points for songs identified later. People who don't see the post in the first day are being a bit unfairly penalized for not responding early enough.

  1. What You Feel, Buffy Musical soundtrack
    [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy, [livejournal.com profile] melissa_actress
    Why'd you run away? Don't you like my style?
  2. One Thing Leads To Another, The Fixx
    [livejournal.com profile] vvvexation, [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] malabar
    The deception with tact, just what are you trying to say?
  3. I Do Both Jay and Jane, Larissa
    [livejournal.com profile] tacky_tramp, [livejournal.com profile] feyandstrange
    I met a boy, his name was Jay, he was so fine
       I met a girl, her name was Jane, she wants to be mine

  4. Living in the Plastic Age, The Buggles
    [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] ragani
    Every day my metal friend, shakes my bed at 6am
  5. Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2
    [livejournal.com profile] blue_estro, [livejournal.com profile] kest, [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy, [livejournal.com profile] vvvexation, [livejournal.com profile] michiexile, [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] malabar, [livejournal.com profile] plymouth, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    I can't believe the news today
  6. Waiting on a Friend, The Rolling Stones
    [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] bloodredrosev - This was the least recognized Major Pop Hit on the list.
    Watching girls, passin' by, it ain't the latest thing
       I'm just standin' in a doorway

  7. I'm on Fire, Bruce Springsteen
    [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy, [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] anthologie, [livejournal.com profile] malabar, [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy, [livejournal.com profile] jeffpaulsen, [livejournal.com profile] zunger, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    Hey, little girl, is your daddy home?
  8. Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen, was looking for the cover by Frankie Goes To Hollywood
    [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy, [livejournal.com profile] 3diff, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    In the day we sweat it out in the streets of a runaway american dream
  9. The Waiting, Tom Petty
    [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy
    Oh, Baby, don't it feel like heaven right now
  10. Hell, Squirrel Nut Zippers
    [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] 3diff, [livejournal.com profile] ratontheroad, [livejournal.com profile] ragani, [livejournal.com profile] anthologie, [livejournal.com profile] malabar, [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy, [livejournal.com profile] jessicac, [livejournal.com profile] zunger, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    In the afterlife, you could be headed for the serious strife
  11. Boy in the Bubble, Paul Simon
    [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy, [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy
    It was a slow day, and the sun was beating
  12. Eleanor Rigby, The Beatles, was looking for the Industrial cover by Godhead
    [livejournal.com profile] blue_estro, [livejournal.com profile] kest, [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy, [livejournal.com profile] vvvexation, [livejournal.com profile] michiexile, [livejournal.com profile] solan_t, [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] hydrolagus, [livejournal.com profile] 3diff, [livejournal.com profile] ragani, [livejournal.com profile] anthologie, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] malabar, [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy, [livejournal.com profile] jessicac, [livejournal.com profile] zunger, [livejournal.com profile] plymouth, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
  13. Blinded by the Light, Bruce Springsteen, although I was looking for the Mannfred Mann cover.
    [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] jeffpaulsen, [livejournal.com profile] rikibeth
    Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
  14. Hold on Tight, ELO. I didn't realize this was originally a Springsteen song when I put it on the disc.
    [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] 3diff
    Hold on tight to your dream
  15. Fever, performed by LA artist Devil Doll
    [livejournal.com profile] vvvexation, [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] malabar. Most people don't realize that Peggy Lee was actually covering an earlier, quite successful, hit.
    Never know how much i love you
  16. Rich Girl, Hall and Oates, was looking for the cover artist Bird and the Bee
    [livejournal.com profile] src, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic, [livejournal.com profile] malabar, [livejournal.com profile] jeffpaulsen. It's really interesting how people misremember the lyrics to this song, too.
    You're a rich girl, and you've gone too far
  17. Rapture, by the artist known as Vaio until Sony threatened to sue her into a neighboring plane of existence, thereafter known as Iio. Because that's not confusing.
    The night I laid my eyes on you
       Felt everything around me move

  18. Dirty Laundry, by Bitter:Sweet
    Tasty, tasty torchy badness
    I've got a bad boy and that's alright with me
       His dirty laundry's nothing that I can't keep clean

  19. Surrender, by Lunascape
    A lovely, lovely breakup song
    The daylight, cried for a cure
       I will wake over you

  20. Pure Imagination, originally performed by Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. I was actually looking for a recent techno mix performed by the band Ford
    [livejournal.com profile] vvvexation, [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] corpsefairy, [livejournal.com profile] jeffpaulsen, [livejournal.com profile] rmd, [livejournal.com profile] iamradar, [livejournal.com profile] blooderedrosev, [livejournal.com profile] darthsunshine, [livejournal.com profile] noirrosaleen
    Hold your breath, make a wish, count to three
       Come with me, and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination


And in the final scoring, [livejournal.com profile] tronpublic picks up one more point to knock [livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy out of the lead:
[livejournal.com profile] tronpublic - we have a winner!
[livejournal.com profile] shoutingboy
[livejournal.com profile] mangosteen - dude, you can dj with me any time
