  1. Favorite lyrics from Peter Mulvey — “…And she must have missed that road sign that said, ‘From now on, nothing in your life will be clear.’…It’s just your Tender Blindspot/ It’s not the ruination of your soul/ …From that Tender Blindspot you must grow…Time in its grace and pain and love…” Don’t get me started, I love Peter Mulvey!

  2. ZZ TOP has the best hair in music!

  3. Three songs I’d pick: the first 2 are from when we met in 1991 and totally make me think of then when I hear them: “Everything I Do; I Do it For You” by Bryan Adams; “She Moves in Mysterious Ways” by U2; and “Smile” (by Charlie Charlie but not sure who all sings it!)

  4. 3 songs for a mix for a girlfriend-
    I Want you to want me-Cheap Trick :
    It must be love:Madness :
    Hold me now-the Thompson Twins

  5. George Clinton has the best hair in music.

  6. 3 songs for a girlfriend (now my wife):

    Tracy Chapman – Stand By Me
    Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Follow You Into the Dark
    Beach Boys – God Only Knows

  7. best hair in music- Bob Geldof-yeah definitley….

  8. Music is so important in a movie and sets the theme and how you forever remember those moment. For me, the Harry Potter music soundtrack meshed perfectly with the movie and my favorite musical moment was when Harry rode a broom for the 1st time.

  9. who won the Matthew Sweet tickets?

  10. My favorite musical scene has to be the dance scene in Pulp Fiction with John Travolta and Maria de Medeiros. A close second is the Ferris Bueller float.

  11. Winners have been notified. Thanks all!
