01 – Kasabian – Club Foot (2004)

UK Chart Peak: 19
Entered at Peak: Yes - 1/1

First up is Kasabian with their debut single Club Foot, one of the most recognisable riffs of the time and a song which has gone on to be one of their most loved, only Fire has more Spotify plays in the streaming era. A solid start with 23 people recognising it.

I certainly recognised the riff but didn't know who it was by.

02 – Sub Focus – Tidal Wave (feat. Alpines) (2012)

UK Chart Peak: 12
Entered at Peak: Yes - 2/2

Next is Sub Focus with what was their biggest hit at the time Tidal Wave, with the help of Alpines, a band who I loved at the time but unfortunately were never able to capitalise on a bit of mainstream success. Again, I think a solid score for a song considering its chart success and age.

Incorrect [3] – BillyH (Arcade Fire), PeteFromLeeds (Guillemots), Riser (30 Seconds To Mars – The Kill)

I had to look up what Kasabian song it was but knew it was them, thanks to my parents for insisting on having Radio X on.

03 – The 1975 – Give Yourself a Try (2018)

UK Chart Peak: 22
Entered at Peak: Yes - 3/3

Song #3 is a recent one from The 1975 with Give Yourself a Try, the lead single from their 3rd album. They’re a band who’ve had far more chart hits than I imagined they would’ve done, both when they first appeared and now looking back. It gets an impressive score with 75% identifying it and one more getting the band right. The first of only three songs not to receive any answers to the bonus question.

Correct Answers [21/28] – AaronTM, Ansel, Awardinary, BillyH, Bjork, Bre, Chrissmith276, CianS, Cremey, DalekTurret32, Dandy*, Danvember, Dobbo, Jade, Jimwatts, jlj, KingRollo, Mack, M4NGO, N4yr, Paulgilb, PeteFromLeeds, Riser, Rush, SevenSeize, StoneDragon, TS0301, Vibe

1/2 points [1] N4yr (The 1975)
Blank [4] – Bre, King Rollo, Mack, Vibe
Incorrect [2] – BillyH (Foxes), Dobbo (Klaxons)

Yay, good start so far! I wrongly put 'Underdog' as the Kasabian song at first but thankfully realised my mistake when checking over them!

One of their better songs for me, although the riff is a bit too similar to Joy Division's 'Disorder'.

Good going so far smile.gif

Ah, I recognized the first two and couldn't place them no matter how many times I listened to the clips. I did consider Kasabian for #1 and not sure why I went for Hard-Fi instead, ah well.

04 – London Grammar – Baby It’s You (2020)

UK Chart Peak: 80
Entered at Peak: Yes - 4/4
Next is the most recent song included, chosen as it’s my favourite song to trouble the UK top 100 this year, the fantastic London Grammar with Baby It’s You. Despite not really troubling the charts it’s recognised by a lot with some incorrect answers varying in their likelihood. It’s also the first correct answer to one of the bonus questions, with 10 people identifying it as one of the two ‘odd ones out’! ohmy.gif

Took me a while to figure out which Kasabian song #1 was, their entire discography before 'Fire' kind of blurs into one in my memory but I was certain it was them so I listened through the intros of a bunch of their singles to figure out which one it was laugh.gif

#3 is the first of the three that I knew I recognised but couldn't put my finger on, I actually had a feeling it was something by The 1975 so I don't know why I didn't just guess that or look up any of their songs to find it but ah well ~ Probably should have got 'Tidal Wave' too but that one wasn't quite as close to the tip of my tongue.

London Grammar being one of the odd ones out in the theme is making me feel like my guess at the theme may have been almost right but not quite... that was one of the quickest ones for me to recognise, one of my favourite songs of the year <3

05 – Girls Aloud - Untouchable (2009)

UK Chart Peak: 11
Entered at Peak: No – 4/5

Song 5 is Untouchable from Girls Aloud, their penultimate charting single in 2009 and for me, has always been one of their best. Maybe a sign of how BuzzJack has moved on over the years that this only gets 18/28 correct answers, and one incorrect guess at the most correct answers bonus, not quite the worst answer to that question kink.gif

Blank [6] – Ansel, Bjork, Bre, King Rollo, Paulgilb, Vibe
Incorrect [4] – BillyH (Robin Schulz), DalekTurret32 (Benny Benassi), PeteFromLeeds (The Orb), Riser (Sash!)

I don't think I've ever heard that Girls Aloud song, shows how little I cared about pop music pre-2014 wink.gif

I knew it wasn't 'We Didn’t Start The Fire' but I couldn't shake that off melodically so I thought it was better than nothing laugh.gif

I think that Bruce Springsteen song has entirely passed me by oops ph34r.gif let me finally give it a first listen!

I very briefly thought of Gorillaz' 'Aries' before getting 'Dancing In The Dark' (the riff has a pretty similar melody) which kind of shows how recently biased my mind is laugh.gif classic song though heart.gif

'Untouchable' is a great song as well, one of GA's best, but pretty sure that's a clip I didn't recognise at all. I am bad at this.
