Intros Quiz – 1971 edition

March 28th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

After last month’s Valentine’s Day interruption, we continue on our five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, revisiting 40 years ago: 1971 (the year that bastion of democracy Switzerland granted women the right to vote, Greenpeace was founded, the first Internet chat room apperared, the pocket calculator and soft contact lenses go on sale, Qatar gained indepedence from Britain, and a tsunami hit Japan, ). Which means that in the coming months we will, God willing, skip to 1976, then 1981, and so on. In between, I might do a couple of TV theme quizzes. Anybody up for TV theme intros quizzes?

Anyway, 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. Those fans of classic rock who have been following the cricket world cup might have been earwormed with number 8…

The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday (so please don’t post your answers). If the pesky number 18 (and, possible 10) bugs you, go to the Contact Me tab above to request the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here.

    What a time trip, Dude, spanning a portion of the last year of high school and most of my first year of college! Very nicely done. (There are a few that I don’t have solved, and I look forward to the answers.)

    Good quiz, although it was my worst result on an intro quiz so far. Probably coz I wasn’t born yet, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it, lol.

    Great quiz – thanks. Sadly didn’t get all correct, but your selection illustrates what a great year 1971 was for music. My opinion of course!
