(Thank you as ever to dandy* for the image <3)

Hello and welcome to the sixth week of Lounge Quizzes, for your side/supplementary quiz to the main Pointless still to come, we will see the return of Never Mind the Buzzjacks! (Well, Pop and Movies have technically got their own ones but it originated in the Lounge so it still counts as a return ;o), a jolly good bit of fun so I hope you're all excited.

For those unfamiliar how this works, there is twenty (LABELLED as that always helps) song instrumentals in the Soundcloud link below. You must identify the song and artist which the song comes from and send them back to me. As for the difficulty level, it probably will depend how closely linked you are to my music taste as is always the case with these rounds, I'll doubtless get a few 'OMG dis iz so hard!11' but it's worth saying I tried to make this generally accessible and with a wide range of genres, and the majority of these were all hits in the UK in some sense so you should be able to get at least a quarter. In short, why not try? You're pretty much guaranteed leaderboard points anyway~

(NB: Starts exactly 1 minute in as this was the only way I could bypass Soundcloud's annoying copyright laws and have them not remove it instantly)

(NBB: Editing is not my forte so make sure you're sitting down for the transition between 18 and 19 heehee.gif)



Link to page if not working

Let's hope that will stay up all week, please let me know if not :x

Additionally, there is a running THEME present throughout these tracks that links them all, and may be closer than you think ;o If you get this right, you can get an additional bonus point, my hint to it is that it will become clearer the more you get right.

So there's a total of 21 points up for grabs, a point available for each song/artist you get right (half marks are available if you get just the artist or song, and hey I may even give you a point anyway if your answers are witty enough to make up for your lack of knowledge ;o). My hint to the theme is it will become clear, the more you get right and isn't necessarily linked exactly to the songs themselves.

If that's all clear, please PM ME (Chez Wombat) your answers by Monday 27th June, 23:59PM GMT time, hopefully I won't be too distracted by the football and finished reeling over the EU referendum result and results will be presented the next evening.

Happy guessing guys and I hope you enjoy this as much as I did putting it together! happy.gif

Entered! Had answers for 13/20 of them and am confident on 12 of these.

A few all-time faves in there, can always count on Chez to have great taste wub.gif (minus ONE glaring omission here :eyes: kink.gif).

Can't quite work out the connection though!

I agree wub.gif

Managed to get 8 answers but 12 and 14 are bugging me. They sound very familiar but I can't place a title, artist or even lyrics to google laugh.gif

Good to have a variation of genres/time periods/popularity too biggrin.gif will send in the morning

This is IT. This is the dream NMTBJ I have been waiting for for years, Chez. Pretty much everything is a complete TUNE - and I would say I'm so glad you put #number in for over half of them in any normal round.

Actually think (without counting or noting down) I have three-quarters of them which never happens for me.

I THINK I'VE ACTUALLY WORKED OUT THE THEME! cheer.gif cheer.gif

As for it helping me get more than 8 guesses in, I'm still a bit stuck tongue.gif It could help me I guess but it might be a bit time consuming

Confident that I know most of these ohmy.gif There are a couple I have 0 idea on but I could take a stab at the artist for a half point I guess, that's usually my tactic for these things laugh.gif

I guessed at the theme too, I feel like my guess might have been a bit obvious but for the ones I got but it was the best thing I had and I know it fits for a few of them.

OK I've just sat down and done this and echoing the love for song choices. #8 & #11 I was particularly thrilled to hear.

I'm stuck on my phone so won't be able to enter in time but this round is great! Knew them all bar two on first listen and pretty much every track is a winner... One of the ones I don't know sounded really good so I'll try to remember to check the results to find out what it is.

Entered. I got like 6 of them, and after the results I'll post my full commentary on it because characteristically there were some strange answers I originally put in. There were a few that I thought I might have knew the answer for but for the sake of not looking thick in front of the whole of Buzzjack I didn't send.

Thanks for your harassing PM Chez, it was much appreciated actually <3 Anyway, I have entered! I know 9 of these for sure, also made a few guesses for artists and left some blanks here and there. There are a few I'm going to be kicking myself for!!

also made a stab at the theme
