If you are Canadian that is.
I do recognize number 6 and 11 and I think they are
Justin Trudeau and Brian Mulroney.
The other ones - no idea

I said simple, not easy. The instructions were simple.

When life was so tender
And dreams were kept beside your pillow
Because I love you
(Yes I love you)
I'll always love you so
I'm gettin' bugged drivin' up and down the same old strip
I gotta find a new place where the kids are hip
Got to be good looking 'cause he's so hard to see
More than the meadow so green and still
More than the mulberries on the hill
More than the buds on the May apple tree
I hurried through 'cause I knew it was you
When I saw your dog waggin' his tail
Honey, why didn't you let me know by mail
You been gone so long
The night is long
Forget your foolish pride
Nothing's wrong
Now you're beside me again
I teased at life
As if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze
May tease a candle flame
The future's not ours to see
The guilty undertaker sighs
The lonesome organ grinder cries
The silver saxophones say
I should refuse you
I wonder when bluebirds are mating
Will you come back again?
You are the one that I need and you say you'll be true
I want to believe you are mine
Once in a while in my mind I go bummin'
Goin' to nowhere with no worry of time
Runnin' along chasin' after a train
Hummin' a song in the sun and the rain
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse
White lightning's still the biggest thrill of all
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
"I love you forever and ever"
Well I love you, gal
And I want you
If you ever
Ah, if you ever need a friend
I'll be yours until the end
I would say what's on my mind
But the words are hard to find
But I'm gonna try to tell her anyway
When my love comes tumbling down
Well, she got him on the sofa
Where he'd gone to take a snooze
And I hope he went to heaven
'Cause he wasn't wearing shoes
A rapture in blue
With the world far away
And your lips close to mine
I don't want to walk without you
Walking right by my side
It hurts me to see you talking
To any other guy
And kneel and say an "Ave" over me
So if some guy should ask you
If some night you're free
Wave him away with the wave of your arms
Let, won't you let me hear
Won't you let me hear you whisper
That you love
That you love
You love me, too
Don't talk about her
She does the best she can
Don't talk about her
Don't talk about her
She just lost her man
Always out having fun
(Having so much fun)
With your heart on the run
(Always on the run)
Baby, come to me
(Come, come, come to me)
You and I were meant to be
