  12. Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
  13. Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty
  14. Gotta Get Thru This - Daniel Beddingfield (by far the least-recognised song)
  15. Trouble - Coldplay (identified as any of a great range of different Coldplay songs)
  16. I'm not in Love - 10cc

  18. Tainted Love - Soft Cell
  19. Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed (1/2 point off for Velvet Underground)
  20. Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
  21. Money - Pink Floyd


Turning to the extra credit section, lots of people mentioned "Smoke on the Water", which we certainly should have put in. There was support for "Bohemian Rhapsody" from several people who should go and listen to it. nuttyxander suggested "The 3am Eternal", which is a line in one of the other intros quizzes, netting us an extra two points. But we think the best combination of easily recognisable unique suggestion that's in our record collection was akirlu with "Tusk".

Great quiz...thanks!

And thanks to Greg also - for saving me the embarrassment of losing another Boob Off. ;-)

Musically Illiterate

Well, if I'd had the nerve to do the clicky thing, I'd have had six right and a couple of incredibly embarrassing wrong guesses - what comes of an incredibly unmusical upbringing, and not really discovering music properly until I moved back to Edinburgh.

Are there remedial classes I could take, I wonder?

Don´t know why but i fell vaugely anoyed and upset that drplokta beat me with a full 4 points.

The closest I come to a forehead-slapping moment is "Right Here, Right Now," which I've certainly heard, with some frequency, but I suspect bad disc jockey practices may have hobbled me. As for the rest, well, I've heard of the Boo Radleys and Coldplay, which is more than I can say for either the Tom Robinson Band or Daniel Beddingfield, and while I know Oasis was big in the UK, I've never knowingly heard them. So, on the whole, I feel mollified. Thanks for posting the answers, and for the props about "Tusk". It does seem to fit with the distinctiveness-of-intro, huge-pop-hit theme fairly well, anyhow.

Well, I didn't do as badly as I could've. My problem was mostly "Aaagh! I know this, but..." except for Daniel-bloody-Beddingfield...

Hmm, well I got everything I knew at least :)

Well, I certainly suggest you go listen to The Logical Song.

The file wouldn't download for me, but I appreciate the chance to hone my automatic writing skills as I tried to guess what the songs were without hearing them. Thanks!

There was no way I'd get that Bownie song. I don't even know what it is from the title.

Daniel Beddingield I might have got if he wasn't such an annoying tit was on the R2 playlist lately.

Heh heh, Tusk is awesome :D
