    To be fair I don’t know the song other than the title.

    I am so irritated I didn’t get that Elvis song. “Save The Last Dance” was just so all-pervasive in that cacophony, with the “oh I know”s in the background…

    Other than goofing up the one entry and seeing the title, I think I maxed out my points here.

      That 60s cacophony was perfectly layered to completely scramble my brain. Every time I tried to concentrate on any part of it, the whole thing just fell apart. I ended up with none of them, despite knowing all three songs.
