26th Feb 2006, 21:33
Evening (morning) all. My turn again this week. Hopefully there will be less typos than last week's effort. :O


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

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

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

4...The judge's decision is final.

5...During the first 24 hours or until the first set of answers have been posted, 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.
