I can't guess again, but I bet its UFO. They did mention Rush on Strangers in the Night (one of the best live albums ever incidentally), so it might be one of their studio albums. I only have one - Mechanix, but not checked it yet.

Question 7:

What lyric lines refer directly to a song by Simon and Garfunkel?

Spirit of Radio, a play on S&G's Sounds of Silence:

"The words of the profits were written on the studio wall"

as opposed to:

"The words of the profits were written on the subway hall"

Enough said. Maybe I could ask for a longer quote, because it goes on, but this will do!

Question 8 - Hope it's not too far fetched:

What do these songs have in common?

A passage to Bangkok
Beneath, between and behind
Witch hunt
Limelight
The analog kid
Natural science
New world man
The pass
Cygnus X-1

(It has to be the aspect I'm thinking of!)

Hint 1: Two more songs could be added to this group.
