Hi all!

Just like the bracket on the popular music quiz show Spicks & Specks - and also following on from savagegrant's SoundBites competition, I am going to start another tournament.

Basically, there will be a youtube link to a video containing small 3-second snippets of 30 well-known tracks. All you need to do is... name them!

A point each will be awarded to the Title and Artist (eg, if you name Psycho Killer, you get 1 point - if you name Psycho Killer by Talking Heads, you get 2 points). Your guesses will be sent through to me by private memo.

At the end of each week, a tally board will show the ladder. I am planning on running 13 rounds, starting something today.

Hope everyone can join in!
OK FOLKS - first lot of tracks finished!

Have your guesses in no later than 4th of July (Tuesday).
Results will be announced along with another challenge at midnight Tuesday nights (or Wednesday mornings).

Good luck!

I am taking every risk that is associated with using my brain at 3am
Hey Effluvium is it one go each time or can you keep trying?
Just one go each time
Only 3 days to go. Entries expire at 11:59pm Tuesday evening. So far only 2 entrants.

Have a go anyway - you might be better than you think
Bumping again - only 4 competitors on board - 27 hours to go!
I expect no more than being at the bottom of the results, but I'm happy to see this sort of game again
I'm in! Do you send a memo with your answers to enter?

Yes you do.
Also - make sure you clearly number your guesses from 1-30. If you don't know an answer, leave it blank, or have a guess anyway!

30 minutes remaining!

Round 3

https://youtu.be/IHloV5Stx44

Guess no later than 11:59pm on the 18th of July.

Good luck!
Also, a couple of things:

1. PLEASE make sure you number your guesses correctly. One person missed about 7 of his guesses by 1 number. I'll let it slide this time but be careful in future. (And no - I'm not a robot).

2. I'm not too fussed about featured artists. As long as you recognise that, eg. Ultralight Beam is a Kanye West song then i'm not fussed about you naming every single featured artist.
omg it was U2! I knew it was familiar but it sounded more modern!

Round 3 looks tricky!
Just curious to know, did my mistyping of Lesley's first name mean I only got one point for my guess of #21?
No - you only got one point for naming "Everywhere You Go", but not Taxiride.
