Intros Quiz – 1976 edition

We continue on our five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, revisiting 35 years ago: 1976 (the year that the youth of South Africa rose up against apartheid; Matsushita introduces the VHS home video cassette recorder to compete with Sony’s Betamax system; an earthquake in Tangshan, China, killed hundreds of thousands people; the Apple Computer Company was formed; Nadia Comăneci earned seven perfect scores at the Olympics in Montreal; the “Son of Sam” began is year-long murder spree in new York; and Bob Marley was shot in an assassination attempt in Kingston). Which means that in the coming months we will skip to 1981, then 1986.

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’m not sure if #7 was a hit, but as one of the few perfect pop songs of 1976, it should have been.

The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday (so please don”t post your answers). If the pesky number 11 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.
