(OK, so it's still two weeks away, but now it's time for you to prepare and stuff.)

Nobody's Fool won last year's contest with 402 points out of 404 (I think). Plan on identifying 200+ lyrics with your friends and family this year as well.

Make suggestions if you like, too. Anyone who wants to help and include some photoshopped clips of album covers to identify would be welcome.

Nice! Was wondering if you might do another one this year.

I'll look forward to it. Should take my mind off the massive assignment that I'm supposed to be writing ...

I'm in. I was thinking of throwing something along these lines together myself if you never got around to it. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

FWIW, anyone's "in" who cares to take the quiz. The questions will be posted here roughly 12/20, and you'll have at least through the New Year to complete them (so you can solve with acquaintances and random bar types over the holidays).

But if there's anything special you'd like in the quiz (aside from just a bunch of lyrics), suggest it now.

I'm gonna try doing this, but I doubt I can make it past 25/400. Bring it on though...

How about a section where you list only the song title and we have to guess the lyric?

Meet the new boss.

This is notice that the quiz is coming, and a request for help or suggestions. I'm gonna try out a new rule this time - anyone can submit up to 5 lyrics and still compete in the quiz*. PM them to me by Friday, December 12. If anyone wants to contribute more (and, um, not compete), let me know.

For those of you not familiar with the quiz, here's the last one. Join the fun, don't cost nothin'.


*I can't guarantee I'll use them all. I might have to toss out duplicates or ones that suck or something.

Are there limitations on quiz lyric submissions? Genre? Era? Bueller?

I'm hoping for a variety of genres and eras. My only limitation is that the songs shouldn't be terribly obscure. I am hoping that this will up the diversity of the quiz by maybe including some artists or songs that aren't necessarily on my radar, but, this isn't an opportunity to get 5 free points by screwing over the other participants.

I was just wondering about this yesterday. Should keep me entertained over the hols.

Will have to think up some lyrics to submit, although I shall be careful not to choose artists that aren't huge outside of the UK.

If this is anything like the last one, I'll do very poorly, but I'll have fun doing it. Count me in.
