I was a little surprised that no one got the Ray Charles or John Lee Hooker songs. It's not like they were obscure songs by these artists. In fact, they were both "signature" songs for these musicians. Hmmm, maybe when I get back on the road and have broadband access again I should give some fundamental schoolin' on the blues and early R&B. These kids today, sheesh.
