Did anyone notice there are NO RULES for this quiz... There seems to be a rule - it's just not written anywhere.
'Each question has only one permissible answer. All other correct answers will be disregarded'.

Wouldn't dare make a comment like that in a quiz *with* rules.

4th May 2005, 22:09
Well well.....

things were going along swimmingly for Desk Jockey - UNTIL THAT COMMENT.....

A few more correct answers.

Revised Progress Scores:

Pigboat - 13
Ndbfinal - 11
Richo - 10
Ruston - 7
Twotter - 3
Ascend - 3

Desk Jockey - 17 but docked 100 points for the smart comment :hmm:

puts you right out of the picture.........:ok:

Read the earlier post. This quiz was supplied to me by another Ppruner - with answers.

Now it takes long enough to put a quiz together, or in this case, administer it.....so I don't have time to run off and check each answer you guys come up with....

Feel free to take the burden from Music Quiz 517 if you think its that easy..:mad: :mad: :mad:

4th May 2005, 23:35
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

I guess it's time to come out of the Music Quiz closet and point out a few facts of life to Desk Jockey.

I put this quiz together, as I did with one a couple of months ago. I wanted to give something back, rather than just sit back and wait for someone else to do all the work. I felt that Scran and Pigboat deserved some thanks and recognition - and a break - for all the work they have done on this forum.

Until the first one, I really had no idea quite how much work was involved in producing one of these things - listening to the tracks, picking out suitable lines (not too obvious, not too unrecognizable), writing down and then typing in all the questions and answers, making sure I got the words right, checking on those items where I felt there could be some ambiguity, re-checking (by lyric, title, artist, writer, release date) and correcting as necessary. This quiz, with a potential for about 160 points, took me about five or six hours in all. I imagine Scran and Piggy, with more experience between them, can do it a fair bit faster than that.

Then add on the time it takes to score and report the results. I left that for Scran to do (thanks, Scran!) so that a second pair of eyes might pick up any glaring errors I likely made.

Then stop and think what this is all about. IT'S A BIT OF FUN, AND A BIT OF A BRAIN-TEASER AND A BIT OF A MEMORY STRETCHER. Nothing more, nothing less. The points really don't mean very much, other than a tiny bit of pride that one hasn't totally lost all one's memory cells. Nobody gains by 'stealing' points from you. Nobody has any hidden agenda.

Similarly, nobody's perfect. Not even me. I based the projected answers for this quiz on my own hearing/reading of the lyrics, my own memory of the original artists, and my own checking and research abilities. My pop music days covered the late 50s to (generally) the late 70s, with a few (very few) exceptions, and my radio exposure came from the UK radio stations of that period. Remember that some artists got more exposure than others, according to which stations one favoured. So, I got a couple of answers wrong. Oops, sorry.

So, I've reviewed, to the best of my ability, Desk Jockey's answers.

L5 - Yes, it was a Dylan song, My Back Pages. I knew it as The Byrds' 'I was so much older then'.

L10 - I knew Yellow River as a Tony Christie song. The best I can find out, it was written by Jeff Christie. Related? Dunno.

L17 - As far as I know, this was written and first performed by Rod Stewart.

L26 - The first version of this which I remember was by Sonny and Cher, but, again, I forgot about Dylan.

L36 - I'm digging my heels in over this one. The line from 'I heard it through the grapevine' goes 'And I'm just about to lose my mind' - the song I have in mind doesn't include the 'And'.

T2/T3 - You got both of those right - I made a typo in T3, which should, of course, have referred to T2.

After all that, I reckon, subject to Scran's approval, that you scored 23 points. Six more than Scran gave you, based on my errors.

Was it really worth pi$$ing off Scran for the sake of six worthless points? Only you can answer that.

My opinion? - I think you owe Scran a very sincere, considered apology, and your thanks for all the time he and Piggy have put into these quizzes which we all enjoy. I just hope you haven't spoiled things for the rest of us.


5th May 2005, 00:51
Don't sweat it too much Jerry - I think you did a great job :ok:

I've had my little rant - I hope Desk Jockey realises he hit a nerve.

The issue is forgotten by me (but he ain't getting his points back this quiz :hmm: :hmm: ) and I'm moving on.

By the way - no more quiz's from me.......................................

:uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh:

Until I do 519 on May 23 :E :E :E

5th May 2005, 01:56
L28..The Woodbridge Dog Disaster/Stan Rogers

Hey scran, May 23rd is gonna work out great quiz-wise. I'll do the next two - the 8th and 16th - but then I leave on the 23rd, and here's the bad news. I won't be back till June 2nd, so you'll have to do May 30th also. :E :D

5th May 2005, 02:02
Ack May 30 is mine also....:ok:

Unless Desk Jockey wants to have a go?

:hmm: :hmm:

5th May 2005, 02:56
You ever notice how the shit hits the fan when I'm gone? :D Seriously, I knew this one had Mr. Coe written all over it! It's not fair some of us have to work for a living, I always miss the good stuff!

JC- Screw the sore losers! We appreciate your hard work. Not everyone can be my Big Daddy and Studmuffin! Thanks Jerry!

5th May 2005, 08:01
Sorry folks - I got a HUGE grin on my face, my comment was entirely in jest but for personal reasons I refuse to use smileys.

Anyway, to redeem just an ounce of my credibility, I was the guest quizmaster about a month back - I couldn't manage a whole quiz so I'm in some awe of this one, but my Q's were spread over two weeks.

Anyway, peace and love.



Oh Sh*t I've just blown my cover, in more ways than one...
Not The SSK

5th May 2005, 14:19
OK, DJ/SSK - storm all blown over - but don't forget the basic rule of safe *** - wear a smiley on every conceivable situation, or you can get seriously :mad:ed...


*** = surfing, of course. What else did you think it meant?

5th May 2005, 21:46
OK...seeing YOU decided to blow your cover:

This looks like the final score.

JC, do we want to preserve any unanswered questions for a future Quiz, go put em out of their misery??

6th May 2005, 01:04
Put me outta my misery now. The song in SOTW 1 has been givin' me a headache for two bloody days and I can't think of the name of it. :oh:

6th May 2005, 02:59
Well...I'll leave JC to decide if he wants to do that Piggy.

Good luck for the next two weeks. Only day I'll actually be at work between now and Quiz 519 is next Thursday 12 May (and even then, have to be in the Hockey camp by 4pm in preparation for departure early AM Fri 13th.....6 hour drive to the venue....:{ )

6th May 2005, 03:00
Oooooo scran!

Can't let all that work go to waste! :E It's awfully tempting to make them suffer a bit longer. What about some clues, though?

Here are a few for starters:

This one's for Piggy: think Woody, almost; think transportation; don't think Louisiana.

L7 - Hoped somebody would get this one: it's a sort of instrumental, the main 'instrument' isn't part of an orchestra, it is a wind 'instrument', but you don't hold the 'instrument'. Go figure.

L4 - I gave this away on another current thread

L11 and T4/5/6 have a lot in common

L13 - Holy Nova Scotia, Piggy! Didn't you see their tourism TV ads last year?

L20 - Look in the mirror at breakfast

L44 - This one'll tickle you!

T4/5 - I said someone oughta know this; I mighta known I'd be wrong. Reada the question and thinka bout the clue.

Hey! Whadaya know? Making up clues is more fun than writing questions!

Have fun
