The music quiz from the other day was a partial success, with you guys guessing 7/20 correctly. I’ve put the correct answers below the cut, so don’t click that link if you’re still playing. Of course, if you’re reading this via an RSS feed you will just have to avert your eyes.

This quiz (and the lack of variety in the “random” songs) inspired me to finally refill my iPod. I was drawing from a hastily chosen (by dragging random artists to the iPod) 10 gigs when I made the quiz. Now all 30 gigs are filled with hand-chosen albums. Maybe I’ll make a new quiz with the newly-filled iPod… Or I could just use iTunes instead of my iPod and draw from 90 gigs.

  1. 12

    Number 12 is also “They’re Red Hot” performed by Eric Clapton, RHCP and Leadbelly. Not sure if Leadbelly wrote it, it could also just be an american traditional.
