Intros quiz: '70s edition

November 10th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

You know the drill: 19 song intros of about five seconds each. This intro quiz comprises hits from the ’70s. All of them charted in the top 10 in the US or UK (or, of course, both). Nothing obscure, though a couple could be tricky.

Just over half of the songs have featured on this blog at some point…

Answers will go into the comments by Tuesday.

And to get into the ’70s mood, look at these fashions (in case nobody has e-mailed you the link yet).

    Ha ha ha. I bet you didn’t discover that ’70s fashion link on your own either. It has been making the rounds e-mail wise, I believe.But, for the record, dear members of the audience, I found that link on Liz’s fine blog of ranbom musings and bad jokes.

    I got 12 and am expecially pleased to have spotted the David Cassidy – though I’m ashamed to say I missed ‘Spirit In The Sky’ and ‘Knock Three Times’ how did I not get that??
