April Charades Contest

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Y'know, sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake. Ever since I started this monthly contest, I would announce when someone had guessed the titles correctly. Then most everyone would stop commenting, even though I would urge all of you to keep commenting so you could still be in the final drawing. Well, it took me long enough, but I figured it out: I'm not going to announce it when it happens.  And I'm throwing in another challenge: Give me the title AND the performer(s).  So keep on guessing - first one with all correct answers will be announced at the end of the contest!  

How it works: Each photo stands by itself to represent a TOP 100 SONG from the 1970s. There's eight songs.
The rules: You need to guess the song titles – and make sure they ARE the correct titles - for each one.
The prizes: The first person to correctly guess all eight songs will receive a surprise gift from me.  Then a second winner will be selected by random number generator from all comments submitted.  The prize? A $20 gift certificate toward anything in my shop (with free shipping).

Want to increase your odds? You can be entered in the drawing up to four times: (1) Take your guesses in one comment (only one guess entry per person), (2) In a separate comment, tell me your favorite image from one or more of these shops, (3) In a separate comment, tell me you signed up to follow my blog (or that you already follow), (4) In a separate comment, tell me you became a fan (or that you are already a fan) of my facebook page:   (More than four comments from the same person will not be counted.)

This contest will run for ONE WEEK ONLY. The drawing will be held on Thursday, April 8.
