View Full Version : Music quiz 649

3rd Dec 2006, 21:53
Evening (morning) all. Easy one this week. :ok:

I'm posting this week's quiz on scran's behalf. Due to circumstances beyond his control, scran is taking a break, possibly an extended one.

The last quiz in the current series will be quiz number 652 on December 24th my date, December 25th for you upside downers. After that, we will see what happens.


1...Questions posted on Monday. Answers posted whenever I feel like it.

2...2 points for each lyrics question, 1 point for the title and 1 point for the artist. Trivia questions normally worth 1 point. Some trivia questions will ask for additional information which is worth 1 point. Bonus points may be awarded for additional relevant information (at my discretion). Artist/Album/Song of the week 1 point unless advised otherwise.

3...There is no Rule 3.

4...The judge's decision is final.

5...During the first 24 hours from the quiz being posted, you are allowed ONLY ONE POST (containing answers to as many questions as you like). Additional posts (within the first 24 hours) will be ignored. Edited posts (within the first 24 hours) will be disqualified. Complete answers will take precedence over earlier partial answers.

6...After the first 24 hours there is no redtriction on posts (usual free for all rules). It is better not to edit your posts. If you want to add or correct something, post a new reply. The points go to the first person to get the correct reply. "First" is taken as the posting time. If you edit a post, the editing time will be used as the posting time for all answers in the post.

3 - Crazy little thing called love

Oh, the luck in stumbling across the quiz just after it had been posted and it being about a band I like!

I am still smarting at that Santana answer though.....FM also re-recorded the song in 1971 for a live concert record. And as they were the original performers of the song, I went for them:p

Not that it will take me to the top of the pile (and not at all in breach of Rule 4, I hope), but for T2-16 I did say Green... Is that not correct?!?

I used to listen to that album when I was but a wee lad.

4th Dec 2006, 23:46
Not that it will take me to the top of the pile (and not at all in breach of Rule 4, I hope), but for T2-16 I did say Green... Is that not correct?!?
