I don't know, I thought it was pretty easy. 23/25 - 230 points. The only ones I missed were the ones where you had to watch the show to know the answer.

14 out of 25! [shake head]

But I'm good at pop quizzes... honest! [Mad]

25/25... but 4 of those were complete guesses that I just got lucky on.

I should have played the lottery instead of taking the quiz [Smile]

18/25. One was a lucky guess, and only one other was a question that fewer than 50% of people answered correctly.

So, I don't really know any more pop music trivia than anyone else who'll go a little out of their way to take a pop music trivia quiz. :-)

Both "Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Together Forever" where number ones. Plus he got a bunch of hits in the top 40, so he's far from being a one-hit wonder.

I don't know which is scarier- that he had more than one hit, or that you know that.

Well that was not what I expected. I thought I was going to be identifying songs based on short clips or something. That I could have handled. One hit wonder trivia is not my style. I managed 16/25 on the strength of many educated guesses.

Just scored 11/25, well, the quiz was actually very show-oriented, I also hoped a test like Ugh's.
