    Got the chords, the covers, the lyrics, the theme tunes, and the Kala, the Oprah and the Madonna.

    Rodney: Congrats!

  3. Dan December 16th, 2015 9:15 pm

    Big Mama Thornton would not be happy with you!

  4. Woodshed December 16th, 2015 9:18 pm

    Dan: Good point! I’ll add that as an option!

  5. Glenn December 17th, 2015 5:32 am

    Thanks to 3 lucky multiple choice guesses I got 20. Can’t believe I missed #28 – I watched a few seasons of that show. Fun quiz. Thanks.

  6. Woodshed December 17th, 2015 7:05 am

    Glenn: Glad you liked it! I was working on that song for ages before I remembered it was the House theme.

  7. Ukulylee December 17th, 2015 8:34 am

    Scored 17 so have some way to go before I’m uke savvy. A fun thing to do and first time I’ve had a go. Ta muchly.

  8. Mark December 17th, 2015 10:09 am

    20 – let down by song lyrics (still trying to get my uke group out of the 1930s) and my failure to engage with popular screen culture. But thanks. Fun as always.

  9. Jonny December 17th, 2015 12:09 pm

    14! Lowest score yet!

  10. Woodshed December 18th, 2015 8:16 am

    Ukulylee: Glad you enjoyed it!

    Mark: There are worse decades to be stuck in!

    Jonny: That’s still good going!

  11. Jeanette December 19th, 2015 2:33 pm

    Great fun, as always! Got 20 – let down not knowing most of the brands/celebs & by those theme tunes that were things I’ve never watched.

  12. Woodshed December 20th, 2015 11:23 am

    Jeanette: Thanks! Those are definitely the least important sections.

  13. s2art December 21st, 2015 12:16 am

    18 again (same as 2013, think I was too ashamed to post my score last year;-) )

  14. Woodshed December 21st, 2015 7:48 am

    s2art: Glad you’re back in form!

  15. Jules December 26th, 2015 10:23 am

    A measly 19!
    Again, I know no lyrics, or famous people! Just relieved I got the chords right, oh and the makes! Thanks again though Al, really enjoyed it!

  16. Woodshed January 4th, 2016 7:37 pm

    Jules: That’s good going! I’m glad you enjoyed it.
