1...Questions posted on Monday scran time. Answers whenever I feel like it.

2...2 points for each lyrics question, one for the artist and one for the song title. TOTW/SOTW and trivia questions are normally worth a point apiece, but some questions may ask for additional information worth extra points.

3...The clue in the lyrics section will be either the first line of the song or chorus, unless otherwise noted.

4...The judges decision is final.

5...During the first 24 hours only one post per player, containing as many answers as you like, will be accepted. Additional posts will be ignored and edited posts will be disqualified.

No chance of the beer getting warm, have both the refridgerator or the Esky to use.

All I need is a sexy wench to bring me the beers.

Where has Muchkins gone? Have not heard from her for ages? How did Northwest end up with their financial woes?

On a more serious note, research is going well.

What I am a little short of at the moment are trivia questions, so if there are any budding Musicmeisters out there who want to send me some trivia questions, please do so.

Piggy, I'm not up until 607 (at earliest)...correct? Will not know how I'm placed until I report for work on monday (assuming I go in that is....:E :E :E )
