In #10 the song is "Reunited", not United.
As for Three Dog Night having their hits from cover versions, that was the norm at that time. Most performers' material was written by outside writers.

For MeTV's information, The Knack were not New Wavers, nor was "My Sharona" a "New Wave" song. It was a straight foward hard rock song, that's all. 🙄😒
