Hey everybody. Welcome to the sixth game of Name That Tune at Popdose. Let’s start with the rules:

The Rules (subject to modification in future games):

  • Maximum three guesses between updates of the list, to give everyone a chance to play.
  • Clip 21 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.

For those new to the game, here’s how it works: I have uploaded twenty-one very brief song clips. Most of the songs are well known; none of them are obscure. The clips are drawn from a variety of styles and decades, from the 1920s 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 main twenty songs. The second part is guessing the puzzle song (clip 21). This time there’s no acrostic — no real puzzle, in fact — song 21 is just harder (I think) than the others. All the songs share something in common that will quickly become obvious, and the thing they have in common is truer of song 21 than any of the others. In addition, the order of the first twenty songs points toward song 21 (just not in a spelling way this time).

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

And here are the clips:

  1. clip 1
  2. clip 2
  3. clip 3
