When I saw that Lil Wayne was guessed less than Los Del Rio, Lou Bega, and Lily Allen, I couldn't help myself from laughing for like three minutes straight!

Anyone from the UK, like myself, will know the Los Del Rio, Lily Allen and Lou Bega ones immediately because they were huge selling number one hits over here. Lil Wayne has never really had any hits in his own right over here. His biggest hits were all as a featured artist. I've never heard of A Milli, personally, but I still managed to guess it because I got all the others so quickly that it gave me time to randomly guess it!

I only got Lou Reed because I somehow thought of Lou Reed at Mambo No. 5. Then I remembered that it was Lou Bega though. :)

Kept trying Lyle Lovett for Smile. Tricky when it comes down to the year being the determiner.

"Need You Now" hit #1 on the country chart in November 2009 and peaked at #2 on the pop chart in March 2010. It later was listed as Billboard's #2 single of the year (behind Ke$ha's "Tik Tok") for 2010 and won that year's Grammy awards for Song of the Year and Record of the Year.

I was in high school in 1971 and I don't remember ever hearing this song on any radio station I listened to. Sorry, but I guess it just didn't make the playlist and I've never heard of it.

I know some of his songs, but that one really rang no bells. Suzanne I might've gotten. And if I'd heard him singing I'd recognise that. Names of songs - not so much.

Leonard Cohen is an acquired taste I never acquired. Same era Lord Baltimore is more my speed. But I don't cry because you haven't heard of them.
