All in all this is pretty damn hard. But I’m surprised no one got the second Pixies’ or Ramones’ songs. I’ve actually posted the the lyrics to Street of Dreams here before. And despite my advocacy and the fact that he’s a humpy, bearish singer, it’s clear that no-one is listening to Stew/The Negro Problem. Ah well.
Thanks for playing and congrats to all our experts
