*sigh*...looks like somebody will have to explain to Farrell the spirit of the quiz :rolleyes:

Btw, quizmeisters, I'm still a semi-regular participant, don't think I've lost interest. These days I print out the quiz and answer them at my leisure (minus Google of course) and to my own satisfaction. I often don't get around to the quiz till Tuesday night but now that the spirit of competition has dulled it doesn't matter. Where's FlyGirl btw?

25th Oct 2005, 15:08
There you go Binos.....terribly sorry

Wasn't Google though, just have a rather large collection of CDs that I have listened to many times and music books that I have read - but hey, in the spirit of keeping you content.....

25th Oct 2005, 15:23
Delighted to meet somebody with such an extraordinary breadth of musical knowledge, Farrell. They're pretty rare.

Why on earth would somebody with that amount of knowledge remove the evidence? Goodness me, man, are you not a touch sensitive?

25th Oct 2005, 15:27
Unfortunately, it doesn't spill over into other, more important areas of my life, like aviation, or relationships etc :p

25th Oct 2005, 15:31
Sorry Piggy/Scran and company. No longer a regular visitor and should have stayed out of it.

Hi Binos, welcome back any time. Ms flygirl's company was struck by it's employees, and is now operating under Ch 11. She's around whenever she can.

Barit, I'll give you the points for lyrics 4, because I think your edit was a honest mistake to add the SOTW note. See rule 4.

A word about Google. I can't speak for scran, but there is no hard and fast rule about Google because why make a rule that cannot be enforced? The use of Google does, however, spoil the fun for the rest of the players who do not rely on a search engine for their answers.
