Phew! I think it’s all done.
My original plan to play the 5 or 6 song requests that would trickle in over the course of a single Sunday afternoon was COMPLETELY BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER. Apparently you were far more generous than I thought, because I received a total of 22 requests! A summary of these is below:
- Zmiles requested “Comfort Eagle” by CAKE, and pledged $15
- msm16 requested “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, and pledged $50
- Karen requested “The Ballad of Day Kitty” by Lou Barlow, and pledged $10
- Julia requested “Somebody Will” as performed by her group Sassafrass, and pledged $10
- Loren requested “Helter Skelter” by the Beatles, and pledged $15
- Frogmistress requested “3 Small Words” by Josie and the Pussycats, and pledged $10
- John Horstman requested “Thanks, Bastards” by Mischief Brew, and pledged $50
- Cunning Pam requested a song by They Might Be Giants, and pledged $25
- David Hart requested a song by 16 Horsepower, and pledged $40
- Momo Elektra requested “The Last Unicorn” by America, and pledged $10
- Nicole requested “The Pedestrian” by Foxboro Hot Tubs, and pledged $10
- Danny White requested “Glory Hallelujah” by Frank Turner, and pledged $10
- InkRose requested “Hard Believer” by First Aid Kits, and pledged $10
- Pandademic requested “Levon” by Elton John, and pledged $50
- Riptide requested Thin Lizzy’s version of “Whiskey in the Jar”, and pledged $10
- Armored Scrum Object requested Gary Jules’ version of “Mad World”, and pledged $10
- Robin requested “Eleanor Rigby” by the Beatles, and pledged $30
- Johnny Vector requested “Surrender Dorothy” by his band Naked Singularity, and pledged $33.33
- Mike requested a song by David Bowie, and pledged $35
- Brad Self requested “Highway 61 Revisited” by Bob Dylan, and pledged $10
- Ryan requested a song by Stan Rogers, and pledged $10
- I was sadly unable to play jolo5309’s requests, as they were too complicated. I encourage him to submit a new song for his $10 pledge.
Combined, y’all raised a whopping $463.33 for the Secular Student Alliance. Truly impressive!
I’m waiting on JT’s numbers to see if a) he and his readers managed to raise more than $537.67, in which case we will be performing Queen’s “Under Pressure” as a joint endeavour.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated!
