Answers GQ2: The Revenge - Round 4

Quelle surprise - every contestant got the same number of points, but mostly for different songs. Specifically, the songs were:
  • Song 116: The La's - There She Goes. 80's hit which got a second wind after being on the soundtrack of one of Mike Myers' few good movies, "So I Married An Axe Murderer". Has about the same feel to it as the "Friends" theme, no? Two of you found this.
  • Song 117: Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles. The vast majority - to the extent one can refer to three people this way - found this tune, which is a testament to the power of television advertising and constant MTV and radio rotation. As this song is piano-based, the intervals are very poorly suited for guitar, which means I tapped the entire thing. Worked well enough.
  • Song 118: Megadeth - Dread And The Fugitive Mind. Cathy: You found this, and mucho props for that - I'm impressed. Wouldn't you agree that this is one of Dave's best songs?
  • Song 119: Dream Theater - Another Day. One of their two songs which have been played on the radio (Pull Me Under being the other one). Sadly, none of y'all found it, which is a shame, as it's quite the excellent ballad. Brutal syncopation in my recording though...
  • Song 120: Spandau Ballet - Through The Barricades. Anders; how the hell did ya find this one? I'm impressed. Actually quite kewl song guitarwise.
So; with everyone getting the same Score for Round 4, I'll simply resort to skipping directly to The Grand Poobah, The Big Kahuna, The Total Score:
  1. Cathy/Sondre (tied at 24 points)
  2. ...
  3. Anders (22 points)
  4. Pigeon (16 points)
Congrats to Cathy and Sondre
for continuing to be the Leaders Of The Pack!

What happened to Motown and Bryan Adams?

This round was pretty close to getting a big, fat 0 score for me.

I bet that Bryan Adams is asking himself that very same question

Anders said...

LOL. Great comment, Willster.

Wilhelm said...

..but how DID you find Spandau Ballet?

Anders said...

..but how DID you find Spandau Ballet?

If you grew up in the 80's and have a special interest in 80's music, it's a no-brainer.

Wilhelm said...

..as is the case with you, I'm sure...

Anders said...

Yes. Eh. No.
I didn't get that one, to be honest.

Wilhelm said...

Eiyo officer, you're making a big mistake...

Are there things, Pigeon? Is there any truth in the rumors that if the story of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs had been expanded by one, french and very hung over dwarf, that'd be you?

Anders said...

...and in comes the french posse. Funny how it was quiet from that front up to know.

Anders said...

Youtube is my friend...

Wilhelm said...

Are you saying that Piggybank is keeping things on the down low until it's time to be up to no good, Anders?

You really found that on Youtube? If so - mad respect or endless hours spent
