The Greatest Hits Quiz!

Postby Prop

A new quiz for the Island, this time testing your knowledge of music :-)

The quiz begins with a greatest hits album of ten songs, each missing their artist. The aim is to correctly identify the band/artist/musician of each track. You can answer one at a time, or as many as you are confident in answering!

Once all have been answered, the person who successfully identified the most artists gets to set the next Greatest Hits album.

Correctly identifying the last remaining unanswered track of an album scores you two points for that track rather than one.

In the event of a tiebreaker, contestants must submit their answer to the question-setter via PM. This is to ensure any guess is truly impartial and nobody is put at a disadvantage by being the first contestant to make a guess.

Tiebreak answers must be submitted within 24 hours of the tiebreak question being posted, but apart from this recommendation, players are free to set a new album or answer tracks at their own pace. Incessant reminders to set new albums or answer tracks within an arbitrary timeframe are not encouraged or permitted.

And don’t forget... “One man’s obscure track is another man’s Greatest Hit!”

Here’s the first Greatest Hits. Good luck <ok>

1) Yesterday
2) Born Slippy
3) The Masterplan
4) Teardrop
5) Brown Paper Bag
6) Reverence
7) Goodbye Blue Sky
8) Higher State of Consciousness
9) Hurricane
10) Snooker Loopy

If you're still taking answers for this one, Brown Paper Bag is Roni Size & Reprazent and presumably Reverence is Faithless. Not sure on Hurricane.

Yip, see my previous post.


<ok> I'll wait to see what prop says thought as his question still hasn't been fully answered yet.

Order! ORDER! :-D

Right, before Manty burst into the room with his cockerel out, James Bentley correctly identified 2 tracks, and HappyCamper identified 1, which completes the first Greatest Hits! Iranu scored highest, with 3 correct answers, so in theory it’s his turn next but I’ve no idea what’s going on now <laugh>

1) Yesterday - The Beatles (Iranu)
2) Born Slippy - Underworld (Judders)
3) The Masterplan - Oasis (Iranu)
4) Teardrop - Massive Attack (Iranu)
5) Brown Paper Bag - Roni Size (James B)
6) Reverence - Faithless (James B)
7) Goodbye Blue Sky - Pink Floyd (Mantorok)
8) Higher State of Consciousness - Josh Wink (Krazeeeyezkilla)
9) Hurricane - Bob Dylan (HappyCamper)
10) Snooker Loopy - Chas and Dave (Judders)

Yep let Iranu have his turn as realistically it is anyway, my victory on the "wrong question" was a goal ruled out for offside by VAR :sad:
