all 158 of them, you are given the year of release as a clue. You need to guess the song, the artist will then be revealed when you guess it correctly.

I got 93/158, slightly advantaged by the fact I made the quiz obviously

86 and I gave up.

That's a terrible score considering I looked through the whole list of million sellers today on the new Official Chart site.

81. The years are confusing for some, for example "All of Me" was released in 2013 yet sold the majority of its copies and passed the million and is listed as 2014 whilst "Rolling in the Deep" wasn't even available in the UK until 2011 yet is listed as 2010. It's the same for some others, like "Happy", "Somebody That I Used to Know" and "Titanium" to name but a few.

96/158 which isn't too bad. My 70's knowledge in particular was patchy!

64/158, amazed at people getting over 100! I've never really studied the million-sellers list to be fair.

61/158 which is kinda disappointing considering how interested I've been in the topic, and for how long, although I knew I'd be poorer on the ones in this decade as I lost interest in current music around 2010 and only keep a toe in the water of current music and charts now, whilst still been very interested in the past decades of music and charts. I think I'll try again in a few days time and hope for a better score.

I got 98, would have been 99 if I typed 'Mary's Boy Child' instead of 'Oh My Lord' for the Boney M song as there's the song by Harry Belafonte! I did get 'Unchained Melody' which were 3 answers. And I managed to get all the 21st century million sellers which I'm happy about. biggrin.gif

Somehow I was convinced that John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John had a hit called 'Summer Lovin' so I wasted at least a minute retyping that several times.
