Name That Tune, Game Forty-Eight

Written by Music, Name That Tune

Think you know your music? How about just a snippet of music? Put your knowledge to the test in Popdose’s latest edition of Name That Tune.

I’m back, fuckers! Well, this week, anyway.

Gave myself a few hours to make a quiz that I’ve had on the back burner since the monster Girl quiz that closed out 2009. Ready, Freddys and Bettys? Time to rock steady.

The Rules:

  • MAXIMUM THREE GUESSES between updates of the list, to give everyone a chance to play. An update of the list is when I post the entire list of correct guesses with the words “OFFICIAL UPDATE.” “Guess” is officially defined as “attempting to identify any one song.” Therefore, one comment that lists three songs counts as three guesses.
  • 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.

How the game is played: I have uploaded 30 very brief song clips. I will use mostly well-known songs, but I reserve the right to use something obscure if it suits my needs, like it does this week. Live versions and covers are also fair game, though I will stay away from remixes, because that’s just mean.

There is a puzzle song this week, and the songs in the game will offer a (painfully obvious) clue as to the puzzle song’s identity.

And here are the clips:
