'Canadian' is NOT the Connection between Tracks 6 & 7

May 15, 2012

Many of you have guessed this connection. But, no, the connection is much better than this!



Going to see The Cranberries

May 9, 2012
They are playing tonight at The Sound Academy.


Not By The Same Producer

May 8, 2012
More than one entry have guessed the connection between Tracks 5 and 6 is the same producer for the two songs - No!


My Apologies

April 20, 2012
Just like the last volume I apologized for having Cher destroying Walking In Memphis, for V6 I need to apologize for Track 6 - it is a terrible version! The singer totally wrecks the song (not that i like the original)! But I need it to make a connection.


V6 Is Ready!

April 15, 2012
I have V6 ready for over two years but just never had the time to 'launch' it! Meanwhile, I have inserted Track 1 and replace the last two tracks in the last few months.

Just like the last volume, there is a track I need to apologize for - it is a terrible version; the singer totally wrecks the song (not that the original is that good)! But I need it to make a connection.

When you see this and you haven't got a CD of V6, let me know and I'll send you one.

For previous Volumes, please go to the sidebar.





FINALLY .... V5 Is Done!

August 5, 2010

I'm bad! The first answers for V5 was posted June 1 2009; it took me more than 14 months to posted all the answers. The last submission from you was in August 2009 so the race was basically finished by then.

And the Champion for V5 is Mick Oliveira with 91 points. Mick was also the champion for V1.

The runner-up is Brian Bridges (88 pts) and the Third Place goes to Brent Gotts (84 pts). All three guys work with me in the same office. My non-MRC friends need to work harder to beat them.



Getting Ready For V5

May 18, 2009
I have moved all the V4 postings into the "NDOS V4" folder on the left menu.


V5 is not as easy as V4, but it is still relatively easy!


I have to apologize for Track 8 in V5 - that's the only version i can make connection!


V4 Champion

March 22, 2009

We have a new champion - Sheryl Shears. Congratulations!!

Previous champions Laurie Townsend and Scott Bowers are 2nd and 3rd respectively.

The 4th to 10th places are:

Mick Oliveira
Steve Byberg (major help from Mandy!)
Jeff Ward
Adam Butterfield
Doug MacRae
Rene Horowitz
Steve Schijns


Get ready! Volume 5 is almost ready .......



Volume 4 Is Ready

August 18, 2007
Volume 4 is ready. There are 23 songs. All the songs are either a movie theme song, a song recorded specially for a movie or a song that evokes a memorable moment of a movie.

If you want a copy of the CD, click on the blue 'Email' icon and let me know.

1 point for the song and 1 point for the artist; 1 point for the movie; and 2 points for the connection.

For example, (it's an easy one), can you name the song, the band and the movie of the music that is now playing?




Volume 4 Is Coming Soon

August 3, 2007

Volume 4 is nearing completion. Volume 4 has a theme on Hollywood - all songs are either a movie theme song or featured prominently in a movie. So, you need not only your musical knowledge, you also need your movie knowledge.
