…system might include weighting the prominence of cowbell sounds by how early they appear in a song? Thus, a song that is introduced with three cowbell strokes scores higher than a song with three bonks on the bell later in a song. Yes, I’m still waving that red & black Loverboy flag.
You’re right. Weighting the system by which songs feature the cowbell as the first note, your boys crack the top 10:
Honky Tonk Woman
Boogie Fever (I forgot this #1 crossover hit)
We’re an American Band
Hair of the Dog
Working for the Weekend
Rock of Ages
