My Retaliation

Okay.. Here it goes. The gauntlet was thrown by yourtoy. Though I could be egotistical and claim it was the posting of the 80s lyrics quiz.

Yourtoy presented a list of lyrics from musicals. All you had to do was name the musical and the song. Let me tell you. I haven't had a mental workout like that in ages. I take my musical theatre very seriously ;) And I am pleased that I knew all phew 44 entries. I will admit it is partially due to my knowledge and always being open to the musicals that people in my life have introduced me to. Which just for a quick mention is "HeatherPamReganLynneShawnCarrieVaticanDeviKelleyCynthiaMyfather..." and anyone else I forget.

So, I needed another mental workout.

There are three quizzes in one. First. 15 + 1 lyrics. The one is 1 that I had no clue about but decided to add after I did some research and found a long sought after answer for my loved one. As she's reading this she is possibly doing the patented BH master schoolgirl jump. (See #4)

Part 2 is some bonus questions. They are sneakier.

Part 3 is seeing how well you really know your stuff.

Each question has a score attached. There are also 10 bonus points each for any errors you find. I think there may be one.

I have taken the gauntlet... and here is my challenge! Good luck!
(let's hope I did the forms right)
