Name That Tune, Game Thirty-Five

Written by Music, Name That Tune

Think you know music? Well, get ready to put your knowledge to the test with another edition of Name That Tune!

Howdilly ho, Popdoserinos! Time for another Medskerrific game of Name That Tune. I used to think I had a good sized CD collection…until I started running this game. Now, it seems infinitely small.

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.”
  • 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 twenty-five very brief song clips. Please bear in mind that both my record collection and knowledge of music are probably 5% of that of Scraps’, so these quizzes won’t be nearly as comprehensive – or even hit-based – as his were. 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, with the other songs offering a clue as to its identity. It will probably take you three and a half seconds to figure it out. If that.

And here are the clips:
