in previous years I've been unable to include all the Top 40 hits in one quiz, as it only lets you take up to 300. This year that's not a problem because of the slow turnover laugh.gif

231/232! So gutted - reached 230 with just under ten minutes to spare, I was so convinced I'd beat Joseph at that point laugh.gif Took me about five minutes to remember one of the Prince songs (When Doves Cry), but I couldn't for the life of me remember Reminder by The Weeknd, despite it being one of my favourites off Starboy :,). Oh well.

59/232 before giving up. laugh.gif I couldn't remember the titles for half the songs despite being able to sing them in my head. There was quite a lot I didn't know too - haven't been paying as close attention to the top 40 this year as in previous years!

Juju On That Beat also got me for a while, I totally forgot the part in brackets at the end biggrin.gif

Oh and I was so shocked to see that Man (Gang) by Skepta had reached the top 40 ohmy.gif

(btw you put the title as 'Man' when it's actually 'Man (Gang)', you might want to change that considering all other tracks had bracketized words taken into account)

The song is actually just titled 'Man'. The 'Gang' was removed from the title.

221/232, better than I expected as I haven't closely followed the UK charts this year. Missed:

Craig David - Ain't Giving Up
David Bowie - Life On Mars?
Dizzee Rascal - Hype - completely forgot about this, my thought was 'wait Dizzee released something this year?' laugh.gif
Kevin Simm - All You Good Friends
The Choir For The Invictus Games - Flesh And Blood
The Neales - I'll Be There
The Stone Roses - All For One
The Vamps - I Found A Girl
The Weeknd - Reminder
Tom Odell - Magnetised
Viola Beach - Swings & Waterslides

Did this earlier and got 182 - not bad considering I barely glance on the chart nowadays (I keep up with the iTunes thread, that's about it laugh.gif).

A really pathetic and slightly humiliating 107/232...probably could have done the lot four or five years ago but I'm too old and past it now.

Looking at the results there's a few how-the-hell-did-I-not-remember obvious ones (Black Beatles? This Is What You Came For?? HOTLINE BLING???) but even after those I probably wouldn't have passed 120 or so in a million years.
