Week 5 Results


Well I think I've found a chink in the collective armour of my Contestants! Can you say Late 70s-Early 80s? Yeah it's probably when half of you were born...WHATEVER! BJ saved your asses with coming through with some good - and correct - calls. Listen up on some classic rock, people! I still heart you. I HEART YOU. There I said it. It's out there.

Welcome to our new PLAYERS!!! So happy to have you and to roll out the red carpet we will give you THREE FREE 'I'm not a loser' points and and extra point for guessing... That's right - you ahvent even gotten one right yet and you got 4 pts. Can I get a woohoo? So WELCOME! to kep, Grant, ZuphChic, Gina, Laina, BJ, and Peggy.

Way to go Kelli for being a mom AND knowing a Top 40 hit. She's the real slim shady. Jenni was the first commenter and walked away with her pts. Ang came later than usual but nailed the commonality of the songs first. Carrie racked up referral points and both kep and Bridget gain a bonus point as well. And Jody? Yeah the petite girl from the big city rocked you all OUT this week. Oh and don't even think William didn't interrupt his travel to post a comment JUST to get his point. Oh yeah. He did.

Everyone gets 1 point for playing. Newbies get 3 points so they don't look so pathetic.

We are in the home stretch for February's Rock Star. Next week will round off the contest for February. We will start from scratch in March.

You could still WIN IT ALL! The Referral Bonus will continue next week. Get a new player to the game and say they sent you...bonus point, baby! There will also be a new bonus question.

    I am still hanging in there! Not bad for not getting any song points this week! And no referral points. Silly Jamie!

    not to sound obsessive or anything, but the points standing says it was last updated 2/15.

    :) get it?? obsessive? HAH!

    on a side note, though... am I allowed to say 'neener neener neener... I'm in the lead?'

    OK, I gotta ask for a ruling from the judges about the commonality thing: Fleetwood Mac is a female artist? I'm sure that Mick Fleetwood, not to mention Lindsey Buckingham, will be thrilled to hear this. (then again, that's what he gets for having such a girly name -- Lindsey for a boy...)

    I'm coming earlier next week and I will challenge your well-deserved "neener neener neener" carrie! (at least as long as there are more classic and chick rock entries. Hint, hint...)

    Carrie - You can say neener neener all you want. Just know it will come back if you don't stay on top (I know you like it there!)

    BJ - For the Fleetwood Mac song... I thought I said performed by female artists? I was pretty sure Christine McVie took the lead on that song. I will research though!

    Diana - Well we'll just be looking for you in March then! Hope Tucker is feeling better!

    Ang - Tell Jamie to get his act together!

    Gina - Girl you better come back! Though I don't do reminders!! Carrie might if she's trying to get more referral points though...she's good like that.

    Susie, you may be entirely correct about Christine McVie singing lead on that one. All I can seem to remember clearly is Buckingham belting out the chorus in the live album. I await your research results!

    BJ - I did some research and found this article and this interpretation. She both wrote the song (for her husband no less) and sang lead. But apparently she did shared lead vocals with Lindsay. To me that still means Ang was right. And me too. But yes you were right in that it wasn't just a female artist singing.

    Kudos to you, Susie, for your research. I also went home last night and dug out my Fleetwood Mac song, and there she was belting her tune out. To which I had to respond "Sing it, sister!"

    And sing it to you to, Susie! (And Ang too!)
