V6 First Answers
The first pair of Answers, Tracks 20 & 21, will be posted 2 days from now.
Bridges is Leading ........ for Now
There have been a few more submissions this weekend. Some new jockeying for places in the standing. Brian, Bill, Mandy/Steve, Brent, Stofko and Pringle (tie for 5th) are holding the top five positions.
We Miss You
Gillian, Scott, Doug, Sheryl, Kathy, Rob, Fi, Lola & Mick?
Three of you are previous champions .............. The first answer will be posted shortly.
'Canadian' is NOT the Connection between Tracks 6 & 7
Many of you have guessed this connection. But, no, the connection is much better than this!
Going to see The Cranberries
Not By The Same Producer
V6 Is Ready!
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!
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
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!
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:
Steve Byberg (major help from Mandy!)
Get ready! Volume 5 is almost ready .......
Volume 4 Is Ready
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
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.
Volumes 1 to 3
From now on, this will be the official site. For Volumes 1 to 3, please go to the old site: http://michael-music.blogspot.com/.
