Song! Challenge! #15: There Are No Words

We use words to convey messages to one another, but sometimes there are things that even words cannot convey.

In this week's game -- which I am rating slightly more difficult than average -- I've taken word-less music clips from TV, movies, and other shows and presented them in almost 4 minutes' worth of 20 clips. How many can you identify?

Your task is to identify all 20 clips -- ONLY THE NAME OF THE TV SHOW, MOVIE, OR MUSICAL -- in this week's Challenge!. Some extra information for this week's game:
  • This week, the numbers between the clips are back! I think they might even make you laugh.
  • Songs in this week's Challenge! -- or other songs from the TV show, movie, or musical may have appeared in previous Challenge!s.
  • Each clip will be worth 1 point, and there will be NO PARTIAL CREDIT. You just need to provide the name of the TV show, movie, or musical to get the point. 20 clips = 20 possible points.
  • Seems to be working well for me to hold all entries until the deadline. I'll wait to post entries until after the 7pm EDT Tuesday deadline.

The Rules

Your job is to enter your song guesses for all 20 clips (TITLE OF THE TV SHOW, MOVIE, OR MUSICAL FOR EACH) 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 won't be approving any comments until after the Tuesday evening deadline. No help from other entries this time around. 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 identify all the TV shows, movies, and musicals correct in a single entry -- or the person with the most points by 7:00PM EDT ON TUESDAY, JUNE 8 -- will win a $10 iTunes gift card, sponsored this week by Song! Challenge! friend Amanda.

And hey! If you're cool and would 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"

The target number for this week's (Almost) Everybody "Wins" is 12. You'll need to get at least 12 points in order to get the (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize.

This week's (Almost) Everybody "Wins" prize is a surprise...because I haven't really figured out what it is yet. But there'll be something. Make sure to leave your e-mail address in the body of your comment/entry so I can e-mail you. (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.)
