Did you ever wonder which one of us has the most completed tracks under thier belt? Did you ever sit in bed at night thinking 'Damn, I must have done at least a dozen songs for the IMG - I rule!'?

..well...neither did I.

But thanks to my spreadsheet, such statistics are available, and I found it at least semi-interesting (worth 1 minute of my time) so I am presenting my findings to you here.

First, a few ground rules on how these numbers were derived - lest you feel robbed or offended or something...

1. Only completed tracks were counted - karaoke or vocal version count as completed. This was to prevent instrument players suffering in count when a vocal track was never done (Crazy Train for example).

2. Instrument players only got credit for 1 version of a particular song. In other words, if you were the bass player for PowerSlave, you only got 1 credit, even though 3 versions are available (karaoke, vox with 7th, vox with Jim).

3. Along the same line - singers only get the 1 credit for their version.

4. If you played multiple instruments on a track, you got two credits (e.g. Ploughman gets 2 credits for synth and drum on Alexander). This only affected myself, Hyde and Ploughman.

5. ...and this one hurt me and Medsy more than anybody - guitar players who do all the guitar tracks for a particular song only gets 1 credit. Reason for this was guitarists on average submit more than 1 track for a song anyway, rhythm, solo, etc.

SO..with all that in mind...Drumroll please....here is the master list. There were a total of 35 completed songs you could have been a part of:

MaidenMan 23
7th Son 21
Constantine 18
Jim 15
Rabies 13
Medsy 12
Ironcross 11
Eddie's Cellmate 10
Ploughman 10
Adde 8
Mr. Hyde 5
Virus 4
Gambler 3
Cooperman 2
Nefilim 2
Pyuras 2
Amon 1
Eddy 1
Mikko 1
Quantum Rocker 1
Sapper 1
EC's Drum Machine 1

....gratz to Maidenman..I knew he would win before I even started. I thought Constantine would be 2nd..I was surprised when 7th beat him.

Hope this was a nice entertaining break in your day! :D
The list is quite impressive. But I thought I have done 2 guitar tracks. For Whom The Bell Tolls & Enter Sandman

Or doesn't Sandman count because the solo isn't finished?

Exactly Amon. Sorry mate. We have about a 6-10 songs that don't count because they are not quite finished...that one happens to be one of them. I think sandman is missing more than just the solo - there is another rhythm track that needs to be recorded too!
