Welcome to the results of my Week 5 NMTB Quiz. Thanks to the 28 people who entered, we got a healthy turnout in the end.

You had to name the artist and title of each of the 25 intros, as well as answer some bonus questions for extra points. I always seem to under-estimate how well people do in these quizzes so I will definitely have to make them a little harder next time (although having said that, only two players correctly identified all 25 artists and titles!)

This is the final list of entrants:

chrissmith276
Mack.
donnahjaneymack
coi
StoneDragon
dan::G
Dobbo
jimwatts
Nina West
rio309
Jade
PeteFromLeeds
paulgilb
n4yr
JulianT
Jester
CJK
Chez Wombat
Riser
Ansel
LewisGT
Bjork
dj_tim_e
Dot Branning
awardinary
vibe
Juranamo
dandy*

Some stats to start off:

* 2/28 players correctly identified every artist and title (as already mentioned!)
* No single song was correctly identified by every single player - although there were two which were correctly guessed by 27/28 players.
* The least correctly guessed song was only identified by 8/28 players.
* 22/28 players correctly identified the song which didn't make number one.
* 15/28 got the bonus points for most correctly guessed song.
* 5/28 got the bonus points for least correctly guessed song.

So here we go, I'll do the results 5 at a time...

1. Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande - Rain On Me

A nice easy one to start with, and the most recent song in the quiz.

Correct guesses (20/28):
chrissmith276, coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, Nina West, Jade, PeteFromLeeds, n4yr, JulianT, CJK, Riser, Ansel, LewisGT, Bjork, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary, Juranamo, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
Mack., donnahjaneymack, rio309, paulgilb, Jester, Chez Wombat, vibe


2. LMC vs U2 - Take Me To The Clouds Above

Less than half of you getting this one.

Correct guesses (12/28):
chrissmith276, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, Nina West, Jade, paulgilb, JulianT, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary


Incorrect guesses:
Mack., donnahjaneymack, coi, rio309, PeteFromLeeds, n4yr, Jester, CJK, Chez Wombat, Riser, Ansel, LewisGT, Bjork, vibe, Juranamo, dandy*


3. White Town - Your Woman

One of the most recognisable intros in the quiz, arguably helped by Dua Lipa sampling it on the excellent 'Love Again' smile.gif (which I still maintain should have been released as a single!)

Correct guesses (26/28):
chrissmith276, Mack., donnahjaneymack, coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, Nina West, rio309, Jade, PeteFromLeeds, paulgilb, n4yr, JulianT, Jester, CJK, Chez Wombat, Riser, Ansel, LewisGT, Bjork, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
vibe, Juranamo


4. Fatman Scoop feat. The Crooklyn Clan - Be Faithful

Another very recognisable one and as with most of these, just putting the lead artist was fine, I didn't expect many people to remember The Crooklyn Clan!

Correct guesses (25/28):
chrissmith276, Mack., donnahjaneymack, coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, Nina West, rio309, Jade, PeteFromLeeds, paulgilb, n4yr, JulianT, Jester, CJK, Chez Wombat, Riser, LewisGT, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary, vibe, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
Ansel, Bjork


Half marks:
Juranamo (Fatman Scoop but no song title)


5. Band Aid 20 - Do They Know It's Christmas?

I wasn't expecting as many as 19 to get this because it doesn't exactly get played that much these days. Be honest, has anyone actually listened to it since Christmas Day 2014? unsure.gif

Correct guesses (19/28):
chrissmith276, Mack., coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, rio309, Jade, paulgilb, JulianT, Chez Wombat, Riser, LewisGT, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary, Juranamo, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
donnahjaneymack, Nina West, PeteFromLeeds, n4yr, CJK, Ansel, Bjork, vibe


Half marks:
Jester (Bad Aid 30 instead of 20... sorry, being strict here!)

I knew #2 sounded familiar, can't say I've heard that one in a couple of years though! (and semi-ironic given the number of songs I guessed U2 for...)

Good start - I have that LMC one on a compilation album so I recognised it, but I think the radio often skipped that bit so can see why it was the least guessed of those 5.

I was wondering what messed up my order and now I know it was 1 and 2, they sounded way too similar, I have no idea how people got either of them! (I've listened to Rain on Me only a handful of times so maybe that's on me, but still, it was a really short clip!)

Wait I put Band Aid 20 as well and I DEFINITELY know that piano is from it, 30 doesn't start with a piano unless I'm remembering it wrong? unsure.gif

(oh I see you've corrected it lol x)

Sorry, that was just a typo in the above post, it was Band Aid 20 and you did all get it right!

6. Manchester United Squad - Come On You Reds

One of the more unlikely number ones of the 90s, lots of you getting this one. Based on Status Quo's 'Burning Bridges', one person incorrectly guessed it as that which was obviously incorrect!

7. U2 - Desire

A couple of people getting U2 but not able to identify the song!

Correct guesses (13/28):
chrissmith276, donnahjaneymack, coi, StoneDragon, jimwatts, Nina West, paulgilb, n4yr, JulianT, Bjork, Dot Branning, awardinary, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
Mack., dan::G, Dobbo, rio309, Jade, CJK, Chez Wombat, Riser, Ansel, LewisGT, dj_tim_e, vibe, Juranamo


Half marks:
PeteFromLeeds (U2)
Jester (U2 - The Fly)


8. The Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays

An impressive number of correct guesses for this, for such an old song!

Correct guesses (20/28):
chrissmith276, donnahjaneymack, coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, Nina West, rio309, PeteFromLeeds, paulgilb, n4yr, JulianT, Chez Wombat, Ansel, Bjork, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, awardinary, dandy*


Incorrect guesses:
Mack., Jade, Jester, CJK, Riser, LewisGT, vibe, Juranamo


9. Five & Queen - We Will Rock You

OK I really thought a few more people would be caught out by this one and just go for Queen but you guys are too damn good!

Correct guesses (24/28):
chrissmith276, donnahjaneymack, coi, StoneDragon, dan::G, Dobbo, jimwatts, rio309, Jade, PeteFromLeeds, paulgilb, n4yr, JulianT, Jester, CJK, Chez Wombat, Riser, Ansel, LewisGT, dj_tim_e, Dot Branning, vibe, Juranamo, dandy*


Incorrect guesses: None

Half marks:
Mack., Nina West, Bjork, awardinary (Queen – We Will Rock You)


10. George Ezra - Shotgun

Another nice easy one!

Correct guesses (24/28):

Ah OK!

I guessed Rain On Me for most answered so that’s already out of the window.

Never heard that Man U song but I've had the Status Quo one on my playlist this month so just assumed that was the non-#1! Yay for one of my many stabs at U2 paying off at least.

laugh.gif I can probably count the number of times I've ever heard 'Come On You Reds' on one hand but that melody is so distinctive!

Oops not getting U2 or Boomtown Rats! The latter is especially annoying.

That version of 'We Will Rock You' was... a thing tearsmile.gif

Well I thought LMC v U2 would be the least correctly guessed as was such a short clip and I think was the last one that I managed to get after a few listens!

Interesting to see what the 8/28 one will be now.

Yeh I am pretty surprised it wasn't higher than 20/28!

Lucky I didn't go for Shotgun as best guessed, that was a 50/50 choice for me

Listening to Come On You Reds/Burning Bridges side by side... it's literally the same sample so a tad annoyed I didn't get *anything* for that!

Yeah the clip of Take Me To The Clouds Above was that bit I don't usually hear when it comes on, can see why you left the rest out of there as that would have really given it away! I already thought Band Aid 20 was a pretty strange number one to include here but little did I know it would get even more random with Come On You Reds laugh.gif I certainly wasn't getting that!

I did go for Shotgun as most guessed oops.

Also bit late but just returning to this commentary for Be Faithful:

I remembered that too, but I might not have done if he wasn't shouting "Fatman Scoop! Crooklyn Clan!" about 100 times at the end biggrin.gif
