Another glorious Name That Tune has come to a close.

The theme was: Hit songs, odd years, 1955-1993, in order.

Name That Tune?

Is there any interest in another Name That Tune ?

It’s been a while since I did one. I stopped because it seemed like interest was waning. But maybe it’s time for another?

Leave a comment, if you think you’d participate.

NTT #26 – Results!

Results!

And so, congratulations to:

C Nelson Reilly !

Well done!

This was a tough one. That theme really limited what I could use. Originally, I was going to do 26 letters but with ‘connections’ between adjacent pairs (as with #18), but there just weren’t enough connections to get me all the way through the alphabet.
