Monday Music – Summer Contest Winner

For this 2012 Summer Edition of Monday Music, I thought we could have some fun. I’ll post some selections and y’all tell me what they have in common. You’ll have more (and better) opportunities to guess right as the weeks progress. If the answer comes forward, then pat yourself on the back, and I’ll be done. Perhaps I’ll slip a gift in your mailbox when I return in the Fall. The only rule is that you be exact with your guess. None of this coulda, woulda, shoulda answers. Be direct and to the point to earn your place in the history of The Lounge contests.

And the winner is…

Sadly or perhaps gratefully or neither, there was no winner to this contest. S’all right. Summer came and now it will slowly fade as the days begin to get shorter; or to be scientifically correct, the  amount of sunlight per day will be less as the days progress and we earthlings wind our way around the sun, yet again, towards that other equinox.

In any case, it is only fair that I reveal the answer to the summer contest, but before I do, would you like one more hint?
If so go here or here or here.

If you’re done with hints, then go here. Or here. Or here. Try this one too.
Here’s the link I relied on week after week.

There you have it peeps. If you have any comments, feel free to leave ’em.

[Remember how I told you (mathissexy specifically) that it might have somethin’ to do with students? Well, just image: We have no idea what they’re downloadin’ these days, yet we try to make our courses relevant to their daily lives so that we help them to be successful. Perhaps bein’ a Black Eyed Pea is how they define success? Who knows, and that could be a problem (yes, so many other variables to consider) as we head into the Fall semester.]

Keep enjoyin’ the summer! Thanks for playing (even if you didn’t submit a guess)!

Final posting for this summer contest. I may have a couple more musical selections to offer before we return to the classrooms in August but they will not be connected to this contest.

Now you’ve either been outside enjoying summer and that’s why the guesses have been as frequent as the rainfall, or this here contest is just too darn hard to crack. Yeah, I’ll fool myself and assume the latter.

This is it. Here’s the tenth musical clue/selection:

Week 7 of the amazing or puzzling music contest. No guesses have been taken over the past few weeks. It’s either a real challenge or everyone took their fun outdoors (like they’re doin’ in this video). If that’s the case, then when you come in to cool off, give this here contest a shot.

Good Monday Morning, Peeps! New week, new hint. The contest continues. I don’t have too many clues left, so give it your best shot.
On a side note, not as a clue, I hope you are enjoying the weather and I hope you enjoyed that longest day of the year last week.

Again, it’s about the music not the video. No guesses last week. S’all right. Now you have five clues. Think you know what these songs have in common? Specificity matters.
