Intros Quiz – 1966 edition

January 17th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here we begin another new five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, starting with 45 years ago: 1966. Next month we”ll skip to 1971, then 1976 and so on.

As always, twenty intros to hit songs from that year of 5-7 seconds in length. All were single releases and/or hits that year. I will not enter into a debate whether #5 is in fact U2’s 1988 hit Angel Of Harlem. I presume the artists of #5 travelled into the future to steal U2’s riff, then beamed thenselves back to 1966 and made hay off The Edge’s inventive genius. Shameful though it is, it does not make #5 a U2 song.

The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday. If the pesky number 20 bugs you, go to the Contact Me tab above for the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here.

    OMG, I love these so much! You’d think I would know most of these, but so far, I’ve only got 10.

    I meant to thank you for the idea that I blatantly stole for my retirement party last year. I had all my guests try to guess songs from 1979, when I started my job. They had as much fun guessing as I did trying to trick them! It was a great party game.

    sorry to nitpick and be a pedant but ‘Nancy Sinatra & Dean Martin – Things’ wasn’t released until 1968 on “Movin with Nancy”.
    if i’m wrong i apologise.

    #15 is actually Bobby Darin’s version of “Things” from Atco 6229, which charted in 1962.

    No, it most definitely is the Nancy & Dean one.
