Cover Me, Game Five

Written by Cover Me, Music

You guys are way too good at this. Fortunately for you, I had already created a bunch of these quizzes before I realized how quickly you’d pick them off. When we get to Game Thirteen (the quiz I’m currently working on), the gloves come off. Just sayin’. Oh, and one other thing:

MAXIMUM THREE GUESSES PER PERSON PER UPDATE. Just to make sure we’re all clear on the rules.

Are you ready to sing along with the common people? Or do you suffer from some incurable disease? Or did I just give you a clue to one of the album covers in this week’s game? I’ll never tell, but if you’re wise, you’ll check this intro paragraph next week for another non-clue.

Below are magnified fragments of 25 album covers. Most of them are well-known albums, but there are a few obscure covers (or lesser-known albums from well-known artists) mixed in to keep you honest. You must guess both the artist and album cover. In order to keep things simple, live albums, soundtracks and singles compilations will not be used, and with all apologies to our European and Japanese friends, we are going with the covers that appeared in the US record stores…back when we had record stores. Sigh.

The rules are the same as Name That Tune. Each player can make three guesses between updates (“Update” is defined as “The time when I post a comment listing all of the covers that have been guessed correctly”), so everyone will have a chance to contribute. There is no puzzle cover this week. Or there are 25 puzzle covers this week, depending on whom you ask. Dig in, kiddies.
