It's that time again! Like I said last year:
Sugarpuss O'Shea wrote:
Hey, kiddies! I'm working on this year's quiz and can use your help. Like last year, you can contribute up to 5 song lyrics and still compete. That's 10 free points! (Out of 500.) Since I'm still trying to go as long as possible without repeating songs from past years, it would probably be best if you send me more than 5 (and then I can choose the best 5 among them), in case you submit a duplicate or something too obscure. What's "too obscure", you ask? My rule of thumb is that the songs should have at least gotten some radio airplay at some time, somewhere. It's not required that they charted (or that they're still in heavy rotation), but they shouldn't be deep cuts that someone would only know if he/she has the album.

So, please help me out if you can. Not only does this decrease the number of lyrics that I have to come up with, but it can up the diversity of the songs by bulking up some genres and/or eras that aren't my strong suits.

Please PM lyrics to me by Monday, December 20. I hope to post the quiz on the 22nd or 23rd at the latest (so that you have time to print it out on the work printer before heading out for Christmas break). Last year Batman (and maybe someone else, I apologize if I've forgotten someone) sent his lyrics with the answers in spoilervision, and that was very helpful because it allowed me to play along and test out the level of difficulty, so please do that with your submissions this year.

I have received lyrics from BubbyChubs and Buckykatt. Thanks, ladies! I would love to hear from more of you. So, if you have time this weekend to send some lyrics my way, it would be much appreciated.

Yes, choose one line from the song. You can take a look at some of the previous quizzes linked above for examples. I'll use no more than 5 songs from each person if you plan on competing in the quiz as well, but if possible, it's helpful if you send a few extras so that I have more options (in case something you send is a repeat, too obscure, or maybe not memorable or unique enough).

When you send the PM, it's also helpful if you put the song title and artist in spoilervision, because then I get to play along and get a better sense of the degree of difficulty.

Thanks! I still have a ways to go to finish the quiz so any help, even if you can just send in one or two songs is appreciated.

I'm not going to finish this until tomorrow night, so if anyone still wants to contribute some lyrics, feel free. An update on the visual round: bing was not available to work his magic this year, but I've done some slicing and dicing, and will hopefully come up with a visual round that you'll like almost as much. :)

Hey music lovers! There will be a quiz this year, but I'm behind schedule on completing it, so it might not be up in time for Christmas. Or, I might try to post at least part of it before Christmas, and then the rest later on.

If you'd like to team up with other FilmWisers, feel free. Teams of 2 to 4 sound good? Or, you can of course go solo if you prefer. (Help from family and friends is always allowed, too.) Unlike previous years, I won't accept lyric contribution from quiz players. But, if any of you don't plan to participate, and want to toss some lyrics my way, feel free.

Also, I'm lifting the ban on song repeats from previous years. After 5 years of quizzes, it's getting harder to avoid repeats. But, I won't use the same lyric that was used in a previous year.

Stay tuned for fun for the whole family!
