    Ladies and gents, Part 2 is Up. You all know the drill.

    Anyway, the premise is simple; I have for you a whole pile of sound clips from various songs I pick out of my playlist. Each of them has a certain difficulty level associated with it. Get the song right, and you get points.

    Now, here's the scoring system: -

    There are 10 songs in Level 1 (worth 1 point each), 5 songs in Level 2 (worth 2 points each) and 3 songs in Level 3 (worth 5 points each). If you guess all the songs correctly, you'll get a Completion Bonus - 5 points for Level 1, 5 points for Level 2 and 10 points for Level 3 rounding it off to a not-so-nice 55 points total.

    All attempts should be PMed to me by Sunday, 8th March 2009 at 11:00 a.m. GMT

    HINT: If you find some clips rather irritatingly short, try looping them. Most of them are the main hooks of the song.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    SCOREBOARD

    :trophy:Ozbenno - tretton

    :trophy3rd:azzaman333 - six

    Scoring system has changed.

    Songs have been cut much shorter - but I think they should be quite enough to guess the song.

    I sense... 1-3 points. Pathetic of me. And the thing about not knowing the 80s one, but knowing the 50s one when I'm born in '90... Odd...

    Okay, I already Have a firm one (102, which was definitely not made in the 80's btw), so maybe if I have time I'll try harder with the others...

    This is my way of asking for a slight extension, to be honest ;)
