Evening (morning) all. Not too hard this week. If johnfairr has copped another parking ticket, he"ll probably ace the AOTW section. ;) :p :E


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. 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 may be any line or lines from the song or chorus.
