Results GQ4: Deguello - Round 5

..the answer to the bonus question was "Classic Rock" or simply "Rock'n'Roll". With that in mind, the songs were:
  • Song 201: ZZ Top - Rough Boy. Perhaps one of the powerballads with the least powerballad-y lyrics out there. Love the pinched harmonics though.
  • Song 202: Aerosmith - Dream On. Although I also accepted Eminem with Sing For The Moment, seeing as how nothing about the recording could distinguish between the two, and since Aerosmith re-recorded the song for Mr. Mathers. One of y'all answered that the artist here was the Yngwie Malmsteen/Dio collaboration on the Aerosmith tribute album. If wishing made it so, this recording would indeed have sounded like Yngwie.
  • Song 203: The Beatles - I Saw Her Standing There. You're right Pigeon - all the Beatles songs from this era sound exactly the same.
  • Song 204: Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode. If you've had the pleasure(?) of giving guitar lessons and organizing band rehearsal for junior high school kids in exchange for the school giving you free access to the rehearsal space, you're very familiar with this one.
  • Song 205: Creedence Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary. Actually, I think this version is closer to Ike/Tina Turner, and I certainly accepted both answers.
Nevertheless, the Round 5 scores look like this:
  1. Sondre (10 points)
  2. Cathy (9 points)
  3. Torbjørn a.k.a. T-bombz (8 points)
  4. Anders (7 points)
  5. Pigeon (5 points)
  6. Marius (4 points)
The Total Score
after the fifth round is:
  1. Sondre (32 points)
  2. Torbjørn (27 points)
  3. Cathy/Pigeon (tied at 25 points)
  4. ...
  5. Anders (21 points)
  6. Marius (18 points)
Congrats to Sondre
and good luck with round 6!

8 points. Not bad, not at all.

However, I still think that "Cars or Babes" should at least provide half a point for any ZZ top song.

LOLZ...while I'm inclined to agree, I'm sure at least one regular contributor to this blog would raise objection to this claim.

I see you've come to terms with your true identify, btw. :-)

Nah. I think he would agree. In fact, I think that's why he likes them.

Couldn't fight it anymore.

..you're forgetting the two songs they've made about guitars

Now you don't have to hide your true identity anymore :-)

Yes, I'm inclined to award half a point, if T-bombz had included Guitars with the Cars 'n' Babes answer.

..you're forgetting the two songs they've made about guitars

Apologies to Pearly
Fuzzbox Voodoo
Humbucking Part II

That's three, no? And I'm not sure all of them really are about guitars...

...can't believe I didn't get the Beatles. Was really close, recongized the song, had an image of a band from the 60's in my head an all. Aaargh. Hate it when that happens...

I hear you. I also hate to have 60's music in my head.

Yeah well; that ship sailed :-)

What? Next you'll be telling me that "Pearl Necklace" ain't about jewelry

I hear you. I also hate to have 60's music in my head.

Is this a recurring problem?
