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)

Ha! This is where where you find out that I am not worthy. ;)

(I need to Google some of these so that I can sleep tonight.)

I made this one to be very hard. You still did great work. Feel free to email me the results of your google. I'm curious to see how much is findable on the net.

A good deal findable, but I limited answers I researched on web to:

- shows I had heard of (so didn't answer Forbidden Broadway)
- songs I could sing but not place (like the one from Grease)

I temporarily screened your comment because I didn't want to give any hints out yet.

But you did well. I tend to forget that people might have heard of the Magic Show.

I've now unscreened this. i've also realized that my comment of screening gave answers too. Gosh that was sill of me.

i'm sure i know more but can't come up with them :)

i'm sure i know more but can't come up with them :)...shoot..i logged in as the wrong user id...can you make sure that the results only show for aryel_moffet :)

OK, not going to do the quiz because I don't know most of them. However, you will be proud to know that I know #s 3, 5 and 12 from the first quiz. Also B4. Otherwise I suck.

But I'm proud of #12.

You should fill it out

You might score higher than you thought ;)

OK, I only answered the ones I knew, and guessed at some of the others.
