This is an amazing line-up, probably my favourite yet. Feels like I nominated half of the songs :D

Later today I'm going to look for the YouTube-linked songs on Spotify US

Hilary Duff | So Yesterday
Drake Bell | I Found a Way
Ween | Ocean Man

I would almost bet money that all three of these were from the same nominator. Three songs all associated in some way with popular kids' shows from the early 2000s.

I'm loving that someone has picked songs from TV shows and the rounds are named after film directors.

A lot of these songs I have never heard, but that means there's something to discover.
