Intros Quiz – 1965 edition

February 1st, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here we begin a new five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, starting with 45 years ago: 1965. Next month we’ll skip to 1970, then 1975 and so on.

As always, twenty intros to hit songs from that year of 5-7 seconds in length. All were single releases that year. The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday. If the pesky number 13 bugs you, e-mail me at halfhearteddude [at) gmail [dot] com for the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here.

    I got MOST of them (I think I missed 2 or 3) but I was 5 years old in 1965 so I am cutting myself some slack … however, I better get ALL of them write for the 1970 edition (as well as 1975), since I believe I had to have my transistor radio surgically removed from my ear at some point in ’70.

    well …. too easy got them all in the first take ;-)

    But strange.. after all the years ( 45 ) you still can remember a hit tune in just 2-3 sec. maybe they made better tunes then ? But to my ears the music from mid.50’s to mid. 70’s was the best ( my ears are 64 years old.. so they have listen to a lot of crap but also some realy gooood tunes through the years !!!
