Contest: How good are you with song lyrics? [CONTEST OVER]

This contest is sponsored by Organic Entertainment and Digital Music Marketing. They have supplied a copy of a new CD release Small Town by Wind Cries Mary.

The first winner, Mike from Essex, will receive that plus 10 other CDs from my pile.

The second winner, John from Milwaukee, will receive a second CD from Organic & Digital entitled A Sentimental Education by Anton Sword, along with 10 assorted CDs from my pile.

The third winner, Ruth from Redding, will receive 10 assorted CDs from my pile.

Here are the answers. If you recall, I mentioned that they would be from Hit songs. The first group were the ones selected by Mike, which matched mine. John found a few others, which were acceptable, but Ruth obviously listens to a different hit radio station, but since she also sent proof the lyrics matched, she is the official third winner.

Thanks for helping me clear off my desk & enjoy your disks! -Rich
