It's the weekend again, and I hope you're as happy about that as I am.

Following are nonsensical anagrams of the titles of fifteen #1 U.S. pop hits from the last fifteen years or so. Win a mental_floss T-shirt by solving them all!

Submit your answers in a comment to this post (and be sure to mention which T-shirt you'd prefer). We'll reveal the correct answers and the winner's name on Monday. Here we go:

1. ALIMONY WASTE 2. ANY HUB MARKETER 3. BIG SLY LIMOUSINE 4. BYE AMBER EMOTION 5. DAYDREAM LLAMA 6. DOLPHIN TIES 7. HIS HIT TIGHTENS 8. LAW FALTERS 9. MOONLIT SOW 10. PHOTOMETER ETCHES SPHERE 11. POROUS MUSIC 12. THE NEW BOOTLEGGER 13. TOMATO STANDINGS WITHIN 14. WARM NEPHEW IDIOTS 15. WOW HELLO WARDEN

FOUR IMPORTANT NOTES: Each entry is a "full' anagram; the number of letters in each word and number of words in each clue don't necessarily match the actual song title.  One entry per player, please. If no one correctly answers all 15, the first player with the most correct answers will be deemed the winner. At the end of your post, write which T-shirt you want from the store (click the link to browse the styles) Comments are moderated, so they won't show up until we release them. The correct answers (and the winner's name) will be revealed first thing Monday morning.Â

Good luck!
