Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8

***

I've collated all the UK top 10 hits from the beginning of 1990 up to this week largely thanks to Wikipedia. How many can you name simply by knowing the artist and the year though?

Part one has all the artists beginning with 'A' or a number. Which means lots of appearances from 2 Unlimited, 50 Cent, 911, A1, Adele, Akon, Alexandra Burke, Alicia Keys, All Saints, Another Level, Aqua, Arctic Monkeys, Atomic Kitten, Avicii and Avril Lavigne. There are 280 to name and you have up to 20 minutes. Gogogo.

I got 175/280. I'm sure some of you can beat that!

105, I had no idea what songs were hits for Atomic Kitten and Alexandra Burke (apart from the obvious #1's of course)

103. The exactness of brackets is frustrating, missed Aqualung because of it, and who tf spells bonanza bananza. I spent at least two minutes trying various combinations of Sk8er Boi only to find it's not inlcluded but should be!

Akon does clearly, that's not a typo it's how it's meant to be spelt in that song.

not sure how to change it so that you don't have to enter the brackets without removing them completely.

and I will edit Sk8er Boi in~ I also remember missing out Starstrukk by 3OH!3

Anastacia - Not That Kind should not be there (it only reached #11). Also, Another Level's hit was Guess I Was A Fool, not I Guess I Was A Fool.

The quiz could also do with a bit more time, as I ran out sad.gif

'You Are' wasn't a single. It was supposed to be but got scrapped in the last week or two. sad.gif Which is a shame, it was looking to be another big hit for them!

When you're making the quiz, where you have the answer field, just use '/' to separate each accepted answer (ie ones without brackets). So you could put down 'Belly Dancer (Bananza)/Belly Dancer Bananza/Belly Dancer' or something like that. Only the first listed answer will be shown on the quiz. happy.gif

I think it's also common Sporcle courtesy that when there's a song title with a misspelt word, that the correct spelling is to be made allowed lol.

179/282 before the time ran out, midway through speeding through the Atomic Kitten singles tongue.gif

I got caught out a lot with alternate spellings, brackets etc, although made a wild guess for the Arnee and the Teminators track (which I'd never heard of) and guessed right.

** Part 2 **

I've collated all the UK top 10 hits from the beginning of 1990 up to the beginning of October 2015 largely thanks to Wikipedia. How many can you name simply by knowing the artist and the year though?

Part two has most of the artists beginning with 'B'. Which means lots of appearances from Backstreet Boys, Beyoncé, Blue, Blur, Bon Jovi, Boyzone and Britney Spears (seriously though, there's 23 Brit appearances, that's insane). There are 295 to name and you have up to 20 minutes. Gogogo.

I got 157/295. I'm sure some of you can beat that!

120/295

Too many Blur, Blue, Boyzone and Bon Jovi for me to get a good score there.

128/281. I wasn't prepared for that many Atomic Kitten songs, I can barely name two of theirs now. The very famous Ace Of Base song (the one that isn't The Sign) eluded me too.

On Part 2 - 99/295. While I'm fine on Blur and Britney and got at least most of their songs, the combination of three boybands I barely know (or care to know) anything about in Backstreet Boys, Boyzone and Blue, as well as Bon Jovi not being a band I've gotten into, that was pretty tough. May have to give it another go.

Is there a few people missing from this one? It only goes up to Britney Spears. I tried to guess "When You're Gone" by Bryan Adams but it wasn't on there.

I got 92/295. Oops. I didn't get any Bon Jovi or Blur songs so that screwed me over.

Bryan Adams will be in Part 3, I couldn't fit all of the B's onto one quiz as it only lets you go up to 300.
