THOSE GUYS?!
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.

Wow, if I had known how good I would be doing at this point I probably wouldn't have made so many selections guaranteed to either puzzle or annoy voters in later rounds.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I don't know what that is, but if it's a choice between that and an Ella Fitzgerald song played on spoons and sung in Croatian, I'll take it anyway. ;)

It was Woolworth's label that pumped out cheapo direct-cover versions of the hits of the day by various British no-marks. I seem to remember that Reg Dwight played on a few before his breakthrough.

And anway, moaning and griping seem to have sadly become a dying Cups tradition.

You cloth-eared morons wouldn't know good music if it hit you in the face! Gah! etc.
