Week 5



Yeeeehaw! Welcome back to the only game that makes you sing the same song in your head all friggin day long.. yes you are WELCOME!

Yeah mad props to my girl Carrie for jazzing up the game with these sizzling logos. She is the schiznit. Go visit her and share the good love. Also note the stats listed in my sidebar...also the SCHNIZZLE. Thanks, Car.

Welcome to new playas! Hopefully you are here because someone referred you to gain some extra points... PLEASE read the rules. Cause just cause you are new doesn't mean you are SPECIAL. HA Well you do get the 3 FREE 'I'm not a loser' points and if you guess you get another free point just for being YOU. Kinda like writing your name on the SAT getting you the 200 pts. But NO! No 200 pts here so don't ask. Liam won't budge and he is the man behind the curtain after all.

RULES RULES RULES...
1. Be honest and don't Google the lyric line I posted, ok? I mean the prize won't be THAT stellar to warrant cheating. Now I never said team play was illegal. But there is only one prize. And most people are playing on their own... so it does sort of pose an unfair advantage. But I still won't rule it out.
2. First come, first correct answer, points earned! That means only one person gets the points for getting the song/artist right. Whomever guesses the correct answer first!You have til the deadline [declared day of game] ET to take guesses.
3. ONE comment entry per person per game. So no guessing one then coming back and guessing on the rest. One shot to get them right. Otherwise we've got ourselves a free-for-all!
4. You can guess on all or just one or two. You get a point for each one you get right - IF you were the first commenter to get it correct.
5. You have to guess both the Song title AND the Performer. If you guess only one or the other you get no points, even if it's right. AND you give another player a chance to get it right!
6. The game is played every Wednesday - the game will be posted by 10AM ET.
7. Lastly, if it looks like someone got them all - guess ANYWAY! It's fun! And you could end up with some points due to a technicality. Sucky to one, joy to another - that's life!

TIME LIMIT: YOU HAVE UNTIL TONIGHT AT 7PM ET TO COMMENT.

The Lyrics...
1. These days you might feel a shaft of light make it’s way across your face

2. My father yells what you gonna do with your life

3. If your life was bad to you, Just think what tomorrow will do.

4. And it turns out he was a missing person who nobody missed al all

5. Your love is better than chocolate… Better than anything else that I’ve tried

6. If I’m acting so distracted… I’m thinking about the fireworks…That go off when you smile

7. Love just don’t come easy…No it seldom does

8. They travel in packs of two or three… With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees

9. Color me your color, darling…I know who you are.

10. I’ve had to work much harder than this for something I want don’t try to resist me

#1 BONUS POINT OP for this week!! I will give one extra point to YOU for every NEW player referral you bring to the game next week. In other words... if Ang gets Jamie to play, he comments and says Ang sent me! AND takes guesses.. Ang gets an extra point. New player means never played before. New players can also participate. So using this example...Jamie could then get Joe to play and Jamie would get an extra point.

#2 BONUS POINT OP: What do all these songs have in common? First player to get it right gets 2 bonus points.

Results will be posted by Thursday morning!

Last note: Contestant Claire may be absent this week as she just HAD A BABY! Go check out her gorgeous addition to an already beautiful family. Congrats again, Claire!

    2. Girls Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper
    4. Goodbye Earl by the Dixie Chicks

    The common theme about these songs is that they are all by female artists.

    Stupid dentist made me late. But no cavaties! :-)

    I only knew #2 and #5 and I wasn't the first so no points awarded here! But Carrie did send me your way for this contest so give HER some love...

    I was referred by Kep, so she gets a point!

    And I only knew #2: Girls just wanna have fun by Cyndi Lauper.

    Oh, and what do all these songs have in common? I can think of several: All sung by women who like to dye their hair?? Um...maybe they all won a grammy (is it grammy?) for these songs. Or...all these songs are on movie soundtracks! Yeah, that's my guess.

    I'm new, and Carrie referred me! The only one I knew was #4, Goodbye, Earl by the Dixie Chicks, so I guess I just get newbie points this week. Fun game!

    points to Bridget for she referred me here -- huzzah to Bridget!

    I believe that number 6 is "Don't Get Me Wrong" by the Pretenders (one of the greatest chick rockers of all time) and number 9 is "Call Me" by Blondie (also one of the greatest chick rockers of all time)

    This is fun -- see you next Wednesday!
