Lots of people sending in strange answers to the current Salvo competition! Many correct responses, but some that can't possibly be right, given that we're asking for a number, not for words; and also given that we're asking you to identify a track you don't hear in the medley ... if competitors want to reconsider, they're welcome to send a second or third answer. We'll use only your last offer.
