Intros quiz: '80s edition

November 4th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

As usual, 20 five-second intros to songs for you to guess. This time, all 20 songs are from the 1980s, and as far as I know, they were all hits in the US or UK or both.

I’ll post the answers into the comments by Wednesday.

The past quizzes have been downloaded a fair number of times, which means that the concept is popular. But what about the quizzes themselves? Too easy? Too difficult? Just right? Do people do them on their own or as a group effort? Anything I should do or not do? Let me know. The comments section is free.

    I agree. Keep them coming. Very enjoyable. I too only know about half of them. Growing up in the sixties for me the easier ones are of the 60s and 70s but I think you’ve pitched it about right even though I haven’t heard of some of the others. (I’m sure I’m in the minority here). Good blog too. Pete

    A third positive vote for these quizzes. Took it moments ago, and knew slightly more than half. Was surprised by that, but even more surprised (and impressed) at wide range of music you own. Encyclopedic!
