The clue was a little tough - if it had been "The irrational belief that everyone is out to get you" I'm sure its score would be higher... similarly if the Lady Gaga clue were "Ron Galella, et.al."

Agreed. I'm a big Black Sabbath fan, so I obviously had no problem with that one... I've never heard of the Lady Gaga song, but I was able to guess it just based on the clue.

Never listened to Black Sabbath or Gaga. Both crap music to me. But Gaga's right cause the clue was easy

Good descriptions. I only new about 2/3, but I was able to get all but one based on the clues.

Same here. I'd only heard six of the songs, but got all but Morissette's song from the clues. How ironic.

I dont think the superstition one is the best of clues. It made me think of hope, faith (and when that didnt work tried dream religion). Superstition is a belief yes, but not in just anything, it is about things (objects or rituals, occurances) that give you luck or ward off misfortune.

If I see a donkey and think it is a horse, it fits your description but is not superstition. Or if someone is grey it means they are a grandmother. (like kids might think)
