Before looking, here are my guesses:

#4 - Robert Palmer 'Addicted to Love'
#12 - Styx - 'I Can't Fight this Feeling Anymore'
#17 - Depeche Mode - 'People Are People'
#18 - Chaka Khan - 'I Feel for you'
#21 - REM - 'Losing My Religion'
#25 - Rick Astley - 'Never Gonna Give You Up'

BTW, you forgot to include "I'm your penis..." as sung by Bananarama.
