SoopaMusicGeek Meme, Vol 1, Round 4
i'm ready for my close up mr demille

Alright... round 4!  There are only five left to be answered.  We are up to a whopping ten words in the lyric snippet.  For the record, I thought #41 would be answered really early, but maybe the song isn't as obvious I thought it was.  I also thought #27 was really obvious by round two. It was the oldest song of the original 50, but I don't think it's any less "heard" than "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "My Girl", or "Jailhouse Rock".  #20 & #33 are the type of songs that everyone knows the chorus but few people probably know the words in the verses...and that's where the lyric snippet comes from.  Finally, #17 is really tricky becasue it's like no other song in the original 50, but if I told you what that difference was, I might give too much away.  As for the score, ruxxell dragged his score up to 12 while late-comer jainetrain poured in 5 correct answers in the third round.  I think if I ever get the energy to do another one of these as the "Vol 1" suggests, I may screen comments and score everyone based on the ones they got rather than a first-come, first-serve basis.  Of course, not googling them would still have to be an an honor system, since there's no way I can stop cheating, but oh well.  If you're a cheater, you're already a  loser and you know it... it's supposed to be about having fun.  So there's only five more, go for it.
