I'll try it.

I guess I should put the whole thing under a spoiler...

Spoiler: show
1926 - Chuck Berry
1931 - William Shatner
1936 - Burt Reynolds
1941 - Bob Dylan
1946 - Dolly Parton
1951 - Phil Collins
1956 - Tom Hanks
1961 - Eddie Murphy
1966 - Janet Jackson
1971 - Amy Poehler
1976 - Reese Witherspoon
1981 - Justin Timberlake
1986 - Lady Gaga


Strangely, the last two are the ones I'm most unsure about.

This was fun! I got them all right except for 1931, 1936, and 1941, which was a lot better than I thought I was going to do.

I'm going to try this one when I have a few minutes. At least in this one I've heard of all of them!

Ha ha! I only got two right, but in almost all the others, I switched them. (I put the one for '26 in '31 and vice versa.) The two I got right were '61 and '66.
