As promised, below is my very own version of NAME THAT TUNE.

Except you don't actually have to name that tune, you just have to sing it really loud in public until you get to the line that is missing. You can still sing it but after that, shut the hell up and email your answers to

lifecorrection@gmail.com

Every song was a top 10 hit in the United States so there aren't any tricks involved. Just a good memory.


Winner will be announced Friday at 9am. Feel free to refer your friends. Please comment if you played. The one with the most correct answers, receives the CD and my undying respect and admiration. I am the sole judge and master so close enough is entirely at my discretion.

Ahhhh...the power...

Okay...get to it and good luck.

Well, I've done it; didn't do great, but had a blast. I think we should do an "all Green Day" edition! I got excited when I saw that one. It embarrasses my kids that I listen to Cher and Hootie on one day and Green Day, All American Rejects and Billy Talent the next. But then again, isn't that my job?
