Now that I'm officially on Spring Break!, I have a spare evening and so I thought I'd deliver my long-promised third lyrics quiz. The rules and guidelines:

  • These are randomly (sort of) chosen songs from the music on my computer.
  • No artists duplicated from quizzes 1 and 2, though there's one technicality there.
  • Because no artists are duplicated, the quiz skews towards artists for whom I have exactly one song on my computer.
  • Don't judge me.
  • If you have to satisfy your curiosity with a search engine, don't ruin it for everyone else.
  • Don't answer more than five until this has been up for at least 36 hours. Greg.
  • If you're looking for patterns, good freakin' luck.
  • Except that I did make sure this time that I would have had at least a good shot at all of them, so there aren't many deep album cuts, if any.
  • I'm not sure how frequently I'll be online over the next week, so don't panic if it takes me a while to update correct answers.
Good luck!
