POP QUIZ: THE NON-MUSICAL MUSIC QUIZ (answers)
First off, I’d like to once again thank T. Gregory “Tom” Argall for his excellent quiz. Well, done, Tom.
Also I’d like to thank the folks who responded by simply saying “I don’t know any of these” or something similar. Good to know you’re playing all the same.
And congratulations to anyone who scored really any points at all on what was, frankly, a very tough quiz.
But big congratulations go to (non-musical drum roll please) Todd J, who got an astounding 18/20! An arrhythmic round of applause for Todd.
The clip is still playable here, if you want to do the, ‘oh, now I recognize it’ thing.
01 MICHAEL JACKSON – THRILLER
02 IRON MAIDEN – THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST
03 EVERCLEAR – AM RADIO
04 SIR MIX-A-LOT – BABY GOT BACK
05 THE MONKEES – DAYDREAM BELIEVER
06 MEAT LOAF – YOU TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT OF MY MOUTH (HOT SUMMER NIGHT)

I understand some folks had problems viewing/hearing the clip on their mobile devices. Nothing I can do about that, I’m afraid. Warner Music made a copyright claim, and blocked the music from playing on anything other than a desktop or notebook. Bastards. It’s always best to check if the media plays on another device. But if it definitely doesn’t work, let me know for sure.
I don’t usually spill the beans on other players answers, but I thought this was too funny not share: Quiz writer Tom and quiz winner Todd are friends, and when Tom gave me the quiz, he said to me, “there’s one in there… only Todd’s going to know #9”. Guess which is the only one Todd didn’t get? 🙂
Remember, if you’ve got a quiz you’d like to share, or even just an idea for one, drop me a line and we’ll work on it together.
