Results GQ5: Jumping the Shark - Initial round

Heh.....when I named GQ5 "Jumping the Shark", it turned out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Maybe the songs were extra hard or the recordings sucked something fierce, but the fact of the matter is that only one of y'all *cough*Cathy*cough* managed to get any points at all. Thus, I deem this a bonus round, and start over with the next round.

In case that wasn't clear, GQ5: Jumping the Shark starts over, with this trial run only counting towards a bonus score for the person who got any songs right *cough*Cathy*cough*.

Damn that dry climate-control air.

It ain't no point in listing the scores, so I'll just reveal the songs:
  • Song 221: Van Halen - When It's Love. Van Hagar era tune - probably falls into the category of power ballad. Not one of their lesser known songs either...
  • Song 222: Poison - Ride The Wind. Two! Two Two; one third the Number Of The Beast! ..or in this case a Poison song from their Flesh & Blood album.
  • Song 223: Van Halen - Dreams. Now this is definitely one of the better known tunes from the Van Hagar era - where's teh love for VH? And don't try to pawn this off on VH being an unknown 80's band, 'cause not even Pigeon can use that excuse while keeping a straight face...
  • Song 224: U2 - Beautiful Day. .......no freakin' comment.....this song has polluted the airwaves ever since Kurt Nilsen won Idol...
  • Song 225: Scorpions - Pictured Life. It's sho' nuff got that 70's blues rock feel to it..

It's apparent that the m-factor posse is more into the likes of Miles Davis and Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Apart from Cathy, who obviously doesn't share our taste in the more distinguished genres of music...

Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Considering your record collection, I call epic Google search on spelling of composer's name :-)

The funny thing is since I had no idea for this quiz, I almost suggested Scorpions for all of them. I guess I should have done it.

Damn it

I see your Google, and raise you a cdon.com.

Actually, I spelled it with a "w" and used Peter. So I wasn't that much off...
