Thanks for the link to those enthusiastic posts. I didn't pay too much attention to Solo Song Survivor when it was in full swing because I was a newbie and hadn't formed too many opinions yet. Now reading those posts, it's fun to see how my thoughts and opinions compare to those of everybody else.

Aw Connie, hate to say it, but you really missed out. Timothy's Solo Survivor was a nail-biter almost every round! It was the most closely fought Survivor we've ever done on the Border. And I think the only game that got more heated was perhaps our first Long Road Out of Eden Survivor right after the album came out, starting about midway through.

Sorry this is so late, but I haven't had much board time today. Just wanted to take a moment to recognize that once again today is the anniversary of the 1990 release of Tell Me the Truth, so ...

HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY TELL ME THE TRUTH!!!

I think this is a really good album and to celebrate, I'm going to repost these YouTube videos that Soda posted last year. They are great, even though they all feature most of the same pictures. OMG, I love Down By the River - its one of my very favorite solo songs of Timothy's. Enjoy!

Thanks for reviving this thread in honor of the album turning twenty, Dreamer! Now I've gotta get my album out and listen to the whole thing.

20? Are you kidding me?

This album is probably third on my fave Timothy solo works and includes 3 of my favorite Timothy tracks. Something Sad, Was It Just The Moonlight & Down By The River---NOT Roxy's Eyes as many of you know from the Tim Survivor game we played quite awhile back.

The pictures from the disc.

HAPPY 21st ANNIVERSARY TO TELL ME THE TRUTH!!!

I have a idea that I got from the Survivor games and solo sampler threads I thought we could try out to celebrate the anniversaries of some of the band痴 solo albums/CDs and I知 going to start with this one.

This isn稚 exactly a game, but more like a poll I guess with no other purpose than to be an exercise of fun. I知 going to list all the songs on the album and ask folks to rank them in the order that they like the songs from favorite to least favorite. I値l give folks a week to post their list in this thread, and then I値l calculate the results so you can see how close your list is to the combined scores.

I値l calculate the lists like this. If there are 10 songs on the album, I値l assign a point value of 10 points to the song that each person lists in 1st place, 9 points for the 2nd place song, and so on until the last place song gets 1 point as follows:

Song 1 10 points
Song 2 9 points
Song 3 8 points
Song 4 7 points
Song 5 6 points
Song 6 5 points
Song 7 4 points
Song 8 3 points
Song 9 2 points
Song 10 1 point

For example, Person A puts the song 羨BC in 3rd place so it gets 8 points; Person B puts 羨BC in 5th place so it gets 6 points; and Person C puts 羨BC in 6th place so it gets 5 points. So all total, the song 羨BC gets 19 points. Then, Person A puts the song 噌YZ in 1st place so it gets 10 points; Person B puts 噌YZ in 4th place so it gets 7 points; and Person C puts 噌YZ in 2nd place so it gets 9 points. So all total, the song 噌YZ gets 26 points. Of course, if the album has 12 songs, then Song 1 receives 12 points.

After I calculate the combined scores from everyone痴 list, I値l post the list in the order of which songs had the highest points to the lowest. You will be able to see how close your list comes to the 杜aster list. If others post a list after a week, I値l update it with their scores.

So here we go the songs for the Tell Me the Truth album are as follows:

Tell Me the Truth
Was It Just the Moonlight
Something Sad
Down By the River
In Roxy's Eyes
Let Me Go
Perfect Strangers
All I Want to Do
Tonight
For the Children

Now, come on all of you TBS fans, list these songs in the order of your most favorite to least favorite.
