1. :N The song title I'm after has one word that is different, have another go :)
16. :Y

I wasn't looking for Don't Cry by Guns N' Roses but there's plenty of reverb on the drums so I'll accept. Additional bonus point for anyone who can find the original answer I had on my list (on top of the two guesses).

I've tried to increase difficulty, but only by a little bit ;)

I didn't realise there was a difficulty setting built into the forum software...are you on level 5 or 6??
