So these don't have a particular theme, huh?

Anyway, #19 is "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf.
#1 is "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" by Bonnie Tyler (covered by Nicki French in '95).
#6 is "Working For The Weekend" by Loverboy...which is exactly what my parents are doing in Anaheim this weekend!

Okay. I've been trying to compose a couple more themed quizzes lately...I'll see if I can get one up by next week.



That British guy who did "Steppin' Out?"  Why can't I think of his name?  Can I get half-credit if I'm right?

I know what his name is, but I can't say it here because I've used up my limit.

I experienced that yesterday too. :-[ As I was posting my response yesterday afternoon, the board acted weird and I couldn't tell if it had gone through or not. When I came back later I saw that it did...which was good. :)
