They're giving you body parts (eyes, ears, noses) and you've gotta guess who.
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

1 is easy: Bono.  I think 4 is Van Morrison, 7 is Gwen Stefani, 8 might be Jennifer Lopez, 9 obviously Ray Charles, and 11 I'm thinking is Neil Young. 12 is pretty cute--Beyonce?

Anyone else got any?

Actually, on further inspection, I think #8 may be Brittney.

You're right on J-Hova.  But I can't see Babs in that nose.

well, it is shot from underneath. i can't place those eyes elsewhere.

and i officially entered the boss instead of van. i haven't seen van the man without his hat and shades in recent years. and i don't think he keeps sideburns these days.
