Intros Quiz – US #1s edition

October 5th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Route 1A simple concept this month: US #1s between 1960 and 1987, not all of them classics but, by dint of having been chart-toppers well known enough. We shall turn to the British #1s in December. But British music fans need not despair: most of these songs were hits across the Atlantic too, a few topped the charts there too. Those that failed to dent the UK Top 20 (such as number 6 and14) are classics in their own right. Only number 10 failed to chart in the UK. All songs are in chronological order of reaching the top of the US charts.

As always, each of the 20 intros is 5-7 seconds in length. I will post the answers in the comments section by Thursday, so please don”t post your answers. If you can”t wait till then to find out what the blasted number 4 is, please feel free to e-mail me or, better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here and become one.
