Wait, what? I actually won something? W00t.

Super thanks SOS and bing for putting this together. It was both infuriating and a lot of fun. Kicking myself over some of those missed ones now. Especially all the self-titled albums in the cover section.

Also thanks to all the helper monkeys. You rule.

Sorry Sugar, but that song is one of the worst Christmas songs ever (let the record show that I don't think I've ever heard this "Christmas Shoes" song everyone complains about each year)

Come next December, I'm going to pay the 99 cents and burn this to a CD and mail it to you. If we have to suffer, so do you. :)

(Sugar, check your email. I submitted answers that way. Doesn't matter terribly, I'm guessing I'd be enjoying a Philip/Batman or Batman/dawgs sandwich, but I just wanted you to know I did participate.)

I am so sorry I missed that, love! I'll get it graded, and update the scoreboard.

Update:

Scoreboard

Nunis - 203
Buckykatt – 198
Agrajag - 164
knarf - 163
Sunshine Dee - 143
BubbyChubs - 116
Mazer - 93
A² – 82
DrG - 80
Sela5 - 69
alan smithee – 58
Philip – 52

If there are any other errors in scores, let me know. Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you enjoyed this. I hope it wasn't too hard. Sometimes it's difficult to gauge if a song is too obscure or if a lyric is memorable enough. Should I post a list of the unsolved ones?

How about the lyrics we all submitted for you? I know I got my 5 so they each had at least one answer... Besides my submission, I was wondering how many other people got my lyrics...

Do you have an easy way to show which lyrics got only one correct answer?

Yeah, that'll be pretty easy because it's all in a spreadsheet. I'll have that ready to post in a moment.

That particular cropping -- while an awesome choice for the game -- does not quite do justice to the cover's awesomeness:

Nice game, Sug. Although I didn't win, I take consolation in the fact that I know my Gang of Four album covers.
