Welcome to the results of Mango's Quiz of Three Thirds! Hope you enjoyed taking part, and I can reveal that there were 23 participants in the end (Bré leaving it very late in the day but just managed to sneak his results in on time).

The following people entered:

chrissmith276
CianS
awardinary
StoneDragon
Dobbo
paulgilb
Riser
jlj
n4yr
PeteFromLeeds
Ansel
Pting Rollo
dj_tim_e
dan-G
vibe
Jahq-o-lantern
Bjork
jimwatts
Blade
XhannahlongX
Cremey
Dan17F1
Grim Bréaper

There were 40 answers to be provided in the quiz, with a point for each (half for artist, half for title) and 3 bonus points available so scores are out of 43. And of the 40 answers, there were just two that were correctly guessed by 100% of participants!

I'm not going to drag the results out, I'm hoping to have it all done within the hour... we'll get started in a minute.

Looking forward to seeing how well I did in this - I suspect there'll be a few 'I should have got that' moments but not too many.

Part 1 : Pixelated Album Covers

I'm just going to reveal all ten answers together:



1. Britney Spears - Britney

Full marks (19/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
Half marks (2/23): Riser (correct artist but 'In The Zone' was incorrect), dan-G (correct artist but 'Oops I Did It Again' was incorrect)
No marks (2/23): Dobbo, paulgilb

2. Suede - Coming Up

Full marks (7/23): chrissmith276, dan-G, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey
Half marks (2/23): Riser (well done on guessing Suede but you just got the wrong album by them!), dj_tim_e (correctly guessing Suede)
No marks (14/23): CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper

3. Kanye West - Graduation

Full marks (20/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
No marks (3/23): paulgilb, Pting Rollo, jimwatts

4. Green Day - Dookie

Full marks (16/23): chrissmith276, awardinary, StoneDragon, Riser, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
Half marks (1/23): jlj
No marks (6/23): CianS, Dobbo, paulgilb, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Jahq-o-lantern

5. Kylie - Fever

Full marks (22/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Grim Bréaper
No marks (1/23): Dan17F1

6. Belinda Carlisle - Runaway Horses

Full marks (5/23): chrissmith276, CianS, Bjork, Blade, XhannahlongX
Half marks (1/23): dj_tim_e (correctly guessing Belinda Carlisle)
No marks (17/23): awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, jimwatts, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper

Didn't expect many to recognise this one so well done to those who did! It's hands down one of my favourite albums of all time and Belinda looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover so I thought I'd indulge myself by including it wub.gif

7. The Weeknd - Starboy

Full marks (22/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
No marks (1/23): paulgilb

8. Lady Gaga - Artpop

Full marks (22/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
No marks (1/23): paulgilb

9. Roxette - Joyride

Full marks (4/23): chrissmith276, StoneDragon, Bjork, XhannahlongX
No marks (19/23): CianS, awardinary, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, jimwatts, Blade, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper

I'm shocked that this is the least correctly guessed album of the ten, it's an early 90's pop classic!

10. U2 - War

Full marks (14/23): chrissmith276, CianS, StoneDragon, Riser, PeteFromLeeds, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, vibe, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Grim Bréaper
No marks (9/23): awardinary, Dobbo, paulgilb, jlj, n4yr, Ansel, dan-G, Jahq-o-lantern, Dan17F1

So there were three albums that were correctly guessed by all but one of you: The Weeknd's 'Starboy' which surprised me a little, Gaga's 'Artpop' (I'm sure the clearly visible G gave it away if it wasn't already obvious) and as fully expected, the pop masterpiece that is Kyle's 'Fever'!

Well the 3 I didn't get there are all album covers that I don't think I have ever seen before, so I'm glad I didn't devote any more time to trying to get those ones laugh.gif

I will admit to only getting Green Day and U2 because the text on the album covers was still legible despite the blurring kink.gif

I didn't see this until this afternoon so I missed one very easy album cover drama.gif

I love your lyrics round. I've been thinking of doing something along the same lines myself so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

Yeah the U2 one was kinda legibble, but I didn't think the Green day one was!

For pixelated pictures,it always helps to stand back from the screen and they are easier to make out.

Part 2 : Paraphrased Lyrics

I'll post these in two parts, and then do the Intros in four parts...


1. When I first made your acquaintance, your employment was serving alcohol in a drinking establishment (1980s)

The original lyric was: You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met you

And the song: The Human League - Don't You Want Me

A nice easy one to start with, correctly guessed by most of you.

Full marks (20/23): chrissmith276, CianS, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Grim Bréaper
No marks (3/23): awardinary, vibe, Dan17F1

2. When we're apart I go insane, provide me with a signal, strike me again (1990s)

The original lyric was: When I’m not with you I lose my mind, Give me a sign, hit me baby one more time

And the song: Britney Spears - Baby One More Time

Another pretty straightforward one which had the joint highest number of correct guesses.

Full marks (21/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, dan-G, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Grim Bréaper
No marks (2/23): vibe, Dan17F1

3. You're not confident in yourself, but I don't know why, when you come in everyone's staring at you (2010s)

The original lyric was: You're insecure, don't know what for, you're turning heads when you walk through the door

And the song: One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful

Full marks (17/23): chrissmith276, CianS, StoneDragon, Dobbo, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, dj_tim_e, dan-G, Jahq-o-lantern, jimwatts, Blade, Cremey, Dan17F1, Grim Bréaper
No marks (6/23): awardinary, paulgilb, Pting Rollo, vibe, Bjork, XhannahlongX

4. The way you're all behaving, it's as if the sight of a Caucasian is new to you (2000s)

The original lyric was: Y'all act like you never seen a white person before

And the song: Eminem - The Real Slim Shady

Full marks (12/23): chrissmith276, CianS, Dobbo, Riser, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, dan-G, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey
Half marks (2/23): paulgilb, Grim Bréaper
No marks (9/23): awardinary, StoneDragon, jlj, n4yr, Pting Rollo, dj_tim_e, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Dan17F1

5. She claims that I'm the father of her child, but I'm not (1980s)

The original lyric was: She says that I am the one, but the kid is not my son

And the song: Michael Jackson - Billie Jean

Arguably the easiest one of them all, and along with the Britney lyrics, 21 of you correctly guessed this.

Full marks (21/23): chrissmith276, CianS, awardinary, StoneDragon, Dobbo, paulgilb, Riser, jlj, n4yr, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, dj_tim_e, dan-G, vibe, Jahq-o-lantern, Bjork, jimwatts, Blade, XhannahlongX, Cremey, Grim Bréaper
No marks (2/23): Pting Rollo, Dan17F1


I'm actually impressed by how well y'all did on some of these biggrin.gif

Yay, got everything right so far except the Roxette album cover! Great start cheer.gif

The only one I was able to identify by text was the Suede cover - I recognised the typography of their logo behind the blur laugh.gif

What Makes You Beautiful took me a while - I only got it from looking through a list of #1s from that decade and I knew as soon as I saw it!
