2: "Jeb doesn't work because he is a millionaire.

#1 is Peter Andersson, "Kenny's Dead", parody of "Yesterday" by The Beatles. The rest I don't know.

Good idea Ethan.

you got it... but from now on i'd prefer if you just guessed the letters for the first day at least... part of the point is to try to see how well you know an author's style without necessarily knowing the song.

In that  case, I'm going to go with 2 being either B) Tong or A) John Barry.  It's tricky because I know Bob has done the BH theme lots of times and of course bashes the right lots of times.  But I don't think he slavishly tries to match every syllable to the original the way JB and WT do ("callous DC" for "California"; "sch*uck" for "truck".    Think I'll go with A); though I wouldn't totally rule out anyone.  I have guesses on the others but I'll let someone else play.

CBBBB, though I'm only sure of two (self and Bob Gomez) , for the rest I'm guessing you're not going too tricky on us in the first round.  ;)

Cool idea for a contest, Ethan...and I'm not just saying that because I got both a MENTION & also happened to be a correct ANSWER...I really did  enjoy coming up with those lines for that piece....in fact, I enjoyed writing the whole thing...

Paul Robinson

PS - Are you planning any more such games/contests?  I don't look in as much as I used to but I will keep an eye out for this type of thing when I do.
