I had to look it up, I couldn't wait! So I'm not answering. I will say I disagree with most of the order of their list.

I know people who can't read a watch if it's not digital so I'm not surprised my answer was right! Kind of like the Hope chest Rob referred to, getting a watch used to be a big deal. Dang....getting old is hard. At least I didn't say a fountain pen! Remember when that was a big deal to get? (I'm only 50 but I know a lot of strange things.)'s answer is a toughie. Music is such a personal thing....I'm going to sit this one out. I couldn't begin to guess and would probably be so far off the mark it's not funny!

Dees, I love fountain pens!!!!!! Remember when we dipped it in the inkwell and pulled the little lever??

Then the plastic ink cartridges, of course.

I don't have one, but I do look at them fondly when I'm in a store and see them :)

Rob, you looked it up??? For shame.... heehee
At least you didn't post the answer, thank you!

There's a real popular hit that I'm surprised no one has mentioned. I'm not saying it's the right answer, it's such a popular song.

What I would've guessed? Popular? What it should've been? Those I can spout all day long. I just figured it have to be an Elvis of Michael Jackson tune. Or maybe the Stones or the Beatles. So, here were my thoughts:

Hound dog
She Loves You

Then I realized, taste is subjective! I was aiming for what I've heard loads of times. I don't know where those are on the list, but that's what I would've guessed.

jasdip, I'm a klutz and never was allowed to use a fountain pen. My handwriting is #%@& so it wouldn't look good anyway. I always admired them day, I'll have a Mont Blanc just to look at!

For some silly reason, the only song I can think of that would make the list is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. They played that to death.

I don't even know what that song is Dees!

My guess would be Hey Jude.
