Thanks, Scumby.

Upon reviewing the question,

Madonna is a correct answer for question #3.

The movie and song were "Who's That Girl".

Sometimes there are multiple correct answers to our questions and every effort is made to find them all.

We rely on our entrants to bring it to our attention if an additional correct answer is found.

I have reviewed all entries and both

Scumby from Baltimore, MD

and

Gina from Paradise Valley, AZ

had all ten answers correct by having Madonna as a correct answer for question #3.

I have added this answer to my original post.

I have also added both names to the list of entrants who had all 10 answers correct.

This does not change the winner status, though, as

Lance from Tucson, AZ was still the closest on the tie-breaking question.

Edl,

Steely Dan was not a correct answer to question #1.

The question asked, "What popular band that broke up in the mid-'80s reunited for a 2007 tour?"

Stelly Dan did break up in the 80's but reunited in the early 90's and have been touring between then and now.

We were looking for a band that "reunited" in 2007.

The Police broke up in the 80's and have not reunited until now, 2007.
