iTunes artwork - Guess the Album!

In flickr, choose "add Note" to name albums


random screen grab of iTunes covers
(using this hint from MacOSXHints:
timed screengrab)

Guess as many as you can to win big prizes
(artist, album)

The large size www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=2095446645&size=o
is pretty large (but then you can't add notes)
