http://www.sporcle.com/games/Thermometer1/...-40-hit-singles

play along and tell us how you did. would be interesting to see which recent top 40 hits are already forgotten amongst buzzjackers and which have stayed in our collective memory whether it's thanks to us loving said songs or just them being in near enough every chart of the year *coughHappyAllOfMeRatherBecough*

I'll play too although I have the advantage of having made the quiz tongue.gif

First one of these I've played in a while!

A few took me a little moment to remember (looking at The Neon Brotherhood, The Janoskians and R3hab in particular) but ended up with 295/296. I don't take fault for missing the last one as you spelled Resonance incorrectly when making the quiz kink.gif

288, I'm not a quick typer so if I took too long on one I moved on and only had a little extra time to spare. Other than the misspelling of one I knew the ones I genuinely forgot/had no idea were:

Make U Bounce, Better Man, Hope Ain't A Bad Thing, Tonight (We Live Forever), Tell Her, Midnight Memories and Pills N Potions

I got 212, I got distracted and wasted a minute or two on the timer, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

So I won't bore you with listing EVERY song I missed but I forgot about Kasabian's song unusually which I'm really sad about. And the two best Ed Sheeran songs on the list (Sing & I See Fire) I somehow missed, I forgot about Rihanna, the names of DJ Fresh's hits completely went blank for me, and I'd forgotten about Flo Rida's song completely.

Well then I got a rather terrible 252/296 tongue.gif Mostly because of way too many dance hits that I'd only heard once or twice and have little memory of, so all of those artists seemed to have one or two that I couldn't remember (so I did miss Unmissable laugh.gif ) And yes I 'got' Resonance as well tongue.gif

oops at the ------Resonance mis-spelling. I've corrected that now anyway.

Got the whole lot but I'll never know if that's due to me being that good or because I typed the song titles out tongue.gif

163. Don't feel too bad about those missing other than err.. not noticing three One Direction tracks at the bottom of the second column.

I thought you were on about '#1 of the year' for a moment (consider that handled when the last chart show of the year comes around) but now I realise you're on about the other one I ran last year right? biggrin.gif

Can get to it tonight possibly.

Got 185/296 laugh.gif

Surprised I got that many tbf, a lot of artists I had no idea had charted/never heard off plus it took ages to scroll down to the bottom on my phone so should have got a few more (not over 200 mind!)

247/296. Yeah... not too stellar of a job. Not really a fast typer and I had to move down a lot, plus I kept forgetting what was in the parentheses...

And I didn't know if "Good Girls" counted because it was a promo single

Some of these songs are old as f*ck

222, got fairly close to the end but there were a few I couldn't recall the titles of (such as the MAD tracks, the Bakermat one also got me, as did Joel Compass, Kaiser Chiefs and Dapper Laughs. The Justin Timberlake one was there somewhere in my mind but I just couldn't recall what the name of it was).
