Weekend Genius Challenge #22 Winner(s)!


Last weekend, we asked readers to come up with song titles of 10 letters or more that used only one if the five vowels (A, E, I, O, or U). We never knew there were so many "Doo Doo Doo Doo" and "Wah Wah Wah Wah" songs out there, but I think you managed to find them all. We received over 300 entries in the contest, and our randomly-chosen winner was Chris B, who offered "Gentle Sheep" by the Ditty Bops. Congratulations!

An honorable mention T-shirt goes to Francisco, L who astounded us with the 25-letter title "Where the Serpents Ever Dwell" by Tiamat. (The 19-letter-one we hinted at last week was "Handbags and Gladrags" by Rod Stewart.)

We'll contact the winners by email, so hold tight. Sincere thanks to everyone who participated... we've got some songs to look up and add to our personal playlists now. A new Weekend Genius Challenge is coming up in minutes.
