ETA: I got 6 of them on first pass.  Won't post any spoilers just yet.

I got 7 so far.  Tough quiz!

I got the following correct:

Eyes - C
Mouths - D
Hands - B
Shoes - A, B, C
Animals - B

I swear I know the following ones, and it's making me bonkers (especially the ones I bolded):

Eyes - D
Mouths - A, C, F
Hands - A, E, F
Shoes - F
Animals - A, C, D

I was with you on Eye C, Mouth D, Hand B, and Shoes B and C. You should definitely know Mouth A.  He's been in several 10@10s lately, but this is from his former group.  I thought I knew Animal C, but my guess was wrong (I was thinking an album from 1984).  I know the band from Animal B but wouldn't know the album title without cheating.

For some reason I now have Animals - C correct (same answer as before) and it was an album from 1985, not 1984.

I got Mouth B now as well.  Turns out I had correctly ID'd the artist, but couldn't remember some of the other LP titles to plug in, and at first the ones I tried were all wrong.

Not surprisingly this is very Brit-centric, all 8 that I have so far are Brits.

OK, so far I have 14 of 'em (no cheating, I promise):

Eyes: a, b & c
Mouths: a, c, d & f
Hands: b
Shoes: a, b & c
Animals: b, c & d

And I know who Mouth B is, but i've plugged in every album I can think of and it's not coming up.
Let's get right to it.

Okay, it's a day later, and I'm willing to share what I got if y'all will do likewise.  But I don't want to spoil it if anyone else is still trying.

Collectively we have the following, and need 25 before we can submit an entry.

Eyes: A, B & C
Mouths: A, B, C, D & F
Hands: B
Shoes: A, B & C
Animals: B, C & D

statistical variation note:  we got all of the B's, yet none of the E's.  On closer look we got 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0: 5 B's, 4 C's, 3 A's, 2 D's, 1 F, and no E's.

Let's post tomorrow.  I haven't had any free time this week and I'd like to think about a couple of these.  Thx!

Works for me--I've looked at it a couple times to day but haven't had any revelations. Still stuck at 14. I'm sure I'll go "d'oh!!" when I see what you guys have though.

Just figured anything I would know you guys would know.  For example, Roxy Music and Joe Jackson.

SPOILERS COMING!!!



Since I performed the most poorly, I'll start with the 6 I figured out initially, and you guys can aid and abet from there.


EYES:
C = Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel

MOUTHS:
A = Beatles (yay), Let It Be
D = Rolling Stones, Goat's Head Soup

HANDS:
B = Roxy Music, Country Life

SHOES:
B = Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
C = Joe Jackson, Look Sharp!

ANIMALS:
B is a Pink Floyd album, isn't it?
C, I thought, was Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Welcome to the Pleasuredome, but I was wrong.

Can't wait to see the rest!
