I looked at the list this morning, and I couldn't say any of these jumped out at me except #43 which is 'Iris' by the Goo Goo Dolls, but Iwas willing to bet that there are songs by The Academy is, Cartel and the Jumpsuit gang. I got the bands right, at least ;)

You did! You should be proud!

There are also Panic (of course), and Boys Like Girls, and Del Amitri. I loves them all.

ETA: edited because I am a moron who can't remember how to do the heart thing. :)
