Intros Quiz – 1969 edition

February 2nd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

woodstock-posterContinuing of five-year cycle, this month’s intros quiz covers the year 1969: all songs were single releases in that year (which means they may have been on LPs released in 1968 or hits in 1970).  All were big hits. One is a recurring track in the TV series Lost.

As always, each of the 20 intros is 5-7 seconds in length. I will post the answers in the comments by Thursday. If you can’t wait till then to find out what the blasted number 11 is, please feel free to e-mail me or, better, message me on Facebook. If you’re not my FB friend, click here.

    Which one # the LOST track?

    Okay, I am choosing to ignore the part about all these songs being big hits, and thus, considerably less difficult to guess. Instead, I am choosing to revel in the fact that, for once, I knew some of the answers! Yes!!! Dude, you made my day. :D

    Oh, I have some experts who struggled with some of the hits, Lizzle. Take all the satisfaction you can get from that.

    Steve, it’s #17.

    This was my favorite quiz so far. So many good songs. Some sampled in newer songs and a few that were driving me crazy. And Lee Marvin just takes it to another level.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
