I thought I recognised the clue for 15. You had it in your Power Ballads quiz in April, copied and pasted below, was question 13.

13. Channel 4 programme will end after today's episode - (15) The final countdown (Europe)

2. :N - but they do have another song on the list
5) Cambodia - Kim Wilde
5. :Y
16. The rain - Missy Elliot
