yay! i was the sole Hey Jude guesser!
but wait, i'm 100% sure the Belle & Sebastian song was A Century Of Elvis, not Fakers.

Lizzie said...

Trevor, aren't "Elvis" and "Fakers" the same exact music? So unless it was a part with vocals (I did listen, but I don't remember!), seems like either answer is correct.

June said...

I can answer this. The clipped section did feature spoken lyrics. They are from "Century of Elvis" (from right around 2:21 in).

Trevor, you're correct, good catch! HOWEVER, seeing as the music is exactly the same--and virtually no one guessed it anyway--I'd say it's splitting hairs.

Seeing that I personally like "Elvis" better, I'll try to up it up for download so people can hear the differece for themselves. :)

Trevor, you're completely right. When I worked out the answers I marked Faker as being wrong, and Elvis as being right. I just messed up with this post. But it's all edited and fixed now! (And gratz on being the sole Hey Jude guesser. I nearly made you the winner based on that alone!)
