  • Kimberly from WestleaThat was fun
  • Uncle Ray from Lancaster, PaTo paraphrase... "If missin' two was wrong... I don't wanna be right"
  • Claudio Morellato from Aviano, ItalyStrangely the only answer that I got wrong was the Deep Purple Knocking at Your Backdoor. I hit all the rest, but in some case it was just fortune.

  • Cheryl from Coalinga, CaMissed three know more about the songs then I thought
