Music Round answers

I got an email tonight that warmed my embattled little heart: "Even though I don't know many answers I am already looking forward to your emails." Those are the things that make everything worth it, aren't they?

We have a new leader, folks! Team Logix playing for the beautiful Madison Town Library is now leading by a point and a half. The current standings show that it's still anybody's game - the final round upon which we are all hinging our Saturday night - is a bidding round. Three questions. Max bid of ten point per question. The whole game can change.

Nothing like a music round to remind you what a geek you are, right? If it had been a musicals round or folk music round, I would have killed it. Here are your answers:
