Fortunately, I did get them ALL! I will have to admit, though.... there will certainly come a day when ALL or any of this music will be archaic! Great teaser! Anyway.

What a great teaser.

If you want it harder don't give the bands, or only give initials for them too.

Well, I guess I'm the first one to say I was clueless!! I was, however, able to sing every single word to every song that Johnny Mathis sang on PBS on TV last night ! Must be an age thing, huh??

Looks like we made it~
Look how far we've come, my baby~
We might've took the long way~
We knew we'd get there some day~

(Still the One -Shania Twain)

(I hate country too, but this song has always been touching to me...)
