  1. I’ve never been more proud of myself, but credit should also go to all the record store clerks, Amazon Marketplace sellers and friends who have traded mix tapes and copied CDs over the years for helping to build my collection to a ridiculous size. And thanks to my fellow bloggers/obsessive music nuts for inspiring me to focus on my passion more than ever.

    A final thanks to Geoff for putting this challenge together…and for including 8 songs that were pretty easy for me to identify (damn you, Calexico & Faith No More for stumping me…haha).

    • I’ve love those great moments where the ‘name that tune’ knowledge or some seemingly pointless trivia comes in handy – all the $ spent on music, totally worth it!

      My pleasure Rich – I suppose it would be boring to get 10/10 on the first one, now there’s at least motivation for a future challenge!

    Hmm, so all these hours spent listening to music over the years were not a waste after all. Who would’ve thought. Thanks for the fun challenge!

    • Thanks for playing – and they have slogan on the comedy network in Canada, “time well wasted.” Even if it is considered a waste, what a way to waste time!

  3. Yay, 3rd place! I’m going to hazard a guess that you only got 3 responses then :p

    Of COURSE Rich won. The guy is a music mutant, and I mean that in the best possible way! 🙂
