    18, myself. I don’t remember the name of the album on some of them, but i know the band, fer sure…

  2. SOFA says:

    33 here – same as Sharl, if not the title, then the band… Most of the ones I didn’t know were in the 40′s

  3. Balint says:

    I made 16 – same (way) as Sharl. I did not know 4 titles. (some Sheik… what’s that?…)

    As always it’s such a joy being put to shame by my readers. :)

    Remember: you’re still an expert of the languagge the Englisch

  6. Barry's Imaginary Publisher says:

    Just took that test again, together with Dr Sharleena: we ended up with 28! L’union fait la force! Still, SOFA’s 33 is rather impressive, I must say… Care to back up that claim, buddy? ;)

  7. mediocre says:

    27 here…and is that moustache iconographic or what?

  8. SOFA says:

    What? You want my list?

  9. Barry's Imaginary Publisher says:

    Maybe tell us the ones you didn’t get? Between the 5 of us we might just get ‘em all!

  10. Ugh! says:

    So far, I am down to only 8 that I cannot figure out. I can’t believe I ownn most of these!
    The numbers I have left: 14, 20, 24, 25, 27, 41, 45, 46
    Several of those I can picture, but just can’t place the names. I will obsess over this until I know them all, hahah! – Haggard37

    Thanks Milhouse!
    8, 30, & 42 I owned – those were the ones that were driving me crazy…
    Oddly enough, I owned 9 also – missed it like I missed Weasels.
    Ah well. At my age and with my history, I count myself fortunate that I remember my name…
