I have compiled a multi-genre / multi-era play-list provisionally entitled GUESS WHO ?!?



  • Sangreeno


  • Nanette Graham
    This is a fantastic list Lee and is very worthy of being in the game, lets make it happen Songpop!! :-)
  • Lee Green

    Initially, I really wanted this list to be just a list of historical figures/celebrities/well-known people etc... but I don't think I mustered enough... so I had to pad it out a bit with some other names. I do think the list would be better if it avoided the 'one word' boys & girls names...
