Song! Challenge! #11: Change of Scene

It's back! It's back! The Song! Challenge! is back!

This week's Song! Challenge! is a throwback to the beginning of the Song! Challenge! when almost every Challenge! contained at least one TV theme song. This week's game is, I think, slightly harder than normal. I'm going to give it a Degree of Difficulty of 7.2. How many of the clips can you identify?

This week, each clip contains a transition sound from a TV show -- the music or sound effect that leads you from one scene to the next, or the audio that comes either before something else is about to happen or after something just happened. Your task is to name all 13 shows from which the clips in this week's Challenge! come. Some extra information for this week's game:
  • Some of these are stunningly easy.
  • But if you get all 13, I will be amazed.
  • If you know me personally, this Challenge! is infinitely easier.
  • In response to feedback from last year's Challenge!s, I have added identifying numbers before each clip, to make it easier to figure out which song you're on.

The Rules

Your job is to enter your song guesses for all 13 clips (THE SHOW TITLE IS ALL WE NEED THIS WEEK) as a single comment here on the blog. Standard rules apply (Judge's decision final, have fun, blah blah blah). Again, I'll be counting minor misspellings and other tiny inaccuracies as correct, as long as you're mostly right.

You can submit your comment-entry starting at 7:00pm EDT tonight, but I'm going to wait until at least Sunday evening to approve and post any entries, so as to cut down on the help you might get from other contestants' entries. The deadline for all entries is Tuesday evening at 7:00pm EDT.

You may enter as often as you like -- but each comment/entry will be counted independent of your other entries; so if you get a question right in one entry but wrong in another, it only counts as correct in the one you got it right in. (Got that?) If you're reading this on Facebook, go to the blog: http://sssemester.blogspot.com to hear the quiz and enter your comment/entry.

The Grand Prize

The first person to get all 13 show titles correct in a single entry -- or the person with the most show titles correct by 7:00PM EDT ON TUESDAY, MAY 11 -- will win a $10 Starbucks gift card, sponsored by me, this time around.

If you'd like to participate as a prize sponsor by donating a prize valued at $10 or more, please e-mail me at SSSemester(at)yahoo(dot)com.


(Almost) Everybody "Wins"

Last year, I kind of got overwhelmed with an (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize for each player, but I'm going to give it another try. This week's (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize is a small original piece of art created by me and mailed or hand-delivered to you. Make sure to leave your e-mail address in the body of your comment/entry so that I can follow up and get you your (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize. (If you're worried about spambots, use the format "user(at)domain(dot)whatever" like I did above, and we should be fine. Nobody reads this blog anyway -- not even spambots.)

The target number for this week's (Almost) Everybody "Wins" is 7. You'll need to get at least 7 of the show titles correct in order to get the (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize.

Remember, I will not be posting comments until Sunday evening, so you won't be giving away any answers to other contestants.

But you just have to enter your comment one time.

Thanks for playing!!!

Forgot to correct my "Newhart" to be "Golden Girls". I think I was confused by watching the Golden Girls marathon on Mother's day and the recent Netflix of Newhart. But I did get it before the close of the contest. Just forgot to comment.

Scott, either I am not musical enough or I don't watch enough television. I thought I maybe, kinda, sorta knew one entry! How sad is that? DVR...we must record more things! (Donita)
