Intros Quiz – 1975 edition

We continue on our five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, going on to 1975 “” which means that next month we will cover one of my favourite years in music: 1980. The regular reader will recall my recent visit to 1975 here and here (a couple of songs featured in those posts also appear on the quiz).

So, here we have 20 intros to hit songs from 1975,  of 5-7 seconds in length. All were singles either released or charting that year (which means that for British chart fans, at least one 1975 release became a big hit only in early 1976). The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday. And if the pesky number 11 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.
