Name That Tune, Game Two

Written by Music, Name That Tune

Hey everybody. Welcome to the second week of Name That Tune. This week’s clips have a theme in common, which ought to quickly become evident. Let’s recap how the game works:

I have uploaded twenty-three very brief song clips. Most of the songs are famous; none of them are obscure. They are drawn from a variety of styles and decades, from the 1950s to the present. It’s likely that you’ll find a few of them instantly recognizable, while a few others you won’t know at all (but other people will).

There are two parts to this game. The first is guessing the songs themselves. The second part is guessing the puzzle song (clip 23). The first letter of the artist’s name for songs one through twenty spell a clue to the identity of song 23. (And if song 23 is guessed early, that ought to help nail down the rest of the songs.)

Some songs may go unguessed the first time round. If songs remain ungessed after a day, I’ll upload longer clips.

The Rules (subject to modification in future games):

  • Maximum three guesses between updates of the list, to give everyone a chance to play.
  • Clip 23 may only be guessed once between updates.
  • While I’m not going to be a stickler for spelling and punctuation, you must guess the correct musician and song title to a close approximation.And here are the clips:
