I'd better win your quiz... I've been trying for that Songfacts t-shirt since 2006. I'm trying to prove you don't need Google and I feel good about my July quiz (had to ask my mom on 2 or 3) but no Google needed. :grin:

Plus it would be nice to win a shirt after 6 years :laughing:

I'm rooting for you, Rayzor.

You Can Do It! :thumbsup:

And if you don't, I'll add your name to our "t-shirts for great guys" list that we have lying around the Songfacts office somewhere.

Sammy is on it twice already and Kevin is on it one time, cuz they're great guys, too.
