Forgot to do this for Q2 but we are back for Q3...

had the advantage of making the quiz in the first place, otherwise would've forgot more, but for what it's worth I missed out on Headie One - Siberia [absolutely no recollection of this], Justin Bieber - Lonely [overload of JB songs], KSI - Patience [overload of KSI songs] and Travis Scott - Goosebumps [still think of this as a Hvme song, curse the label/OCC for changing the to give Travis the lead credit]

I got 214/228, a bit annoyed at some of the ones I missed.

Ariana Grande - test drive / completely forgot her deluxe album was a thing tbh oops
Billie Eilish - Your Power / this was literally my favourite of the singles off Happier Than Ever so I am the big dumb for this being the one I missed drama.gif
Bugzy Malone - Notorious / I remembered it featured Chip but not the song title
D-Block Europe - Ferrari Horses / rightfully blocked from my memory (I'm not sure how I remembered Kevin McCallister but not this one, I was trying to rack my brain for another song that scraped the top 40 for a week completely forgetting they had a big hit lol)
Doja Cat - Ain't Shit / rightfully blocked from my memory [2]
Doja Cat - Streets / feels like this happened a lot longer ago than this year, I was trying to think of songs from her current album and didn't even consider this
Fredo - Back To Basics / this was completely overshadowed by the other three hits from that first Fredo album, not a very memorable song, though again surprising it was this that I forgot rather than any of the songs off the second album
James Arthur - Train Wreck / similar to Streets
Jason Derulo - Love Not War (The Tampa Beat) / rightfully blocked from my memory [3]
Jax Jones - i miss u / just straight up forgot this existed
Justin Bieber - As I Am / too many Bieber songs, I had a feeling the last one was an album track but could not remember which one it was, not even that it had a feature
KSI - Patience / YUNGBLUD's entire being rightfully blocked from my memory / too many KSI songs (but I got 'Gang Gang' over this lmao how does my brain work x)
Shawn Mendes - Monster / I was baffled at Shawn Mendes apparently having another recent hit beyond 'Wonder' knowing that 'Summer Of Love' missed the top 40 - this song was really a non-event lmao
The Kid LAROI - SO DONE / I could swear I actually did type 'so done' but I must have made a typo without realising it or something - couldn't think what else it could possibly have been and quickly gave up so I count this as morally me getting 215/228 x

I am proud of myself for somehow managing to remember all of the songs by Becky Hill, Central Cee and Digga D.

Couldn't remember a single Fredo track other than Money Talks so that didn't help. Neither did the amount of Central Cee, Digga D and J Cole songs lmao. Annoyed that I missed a fair amount of obvious ones like Goosebumps and Love Not War though. I also completely forgot about All I Know So Far by Pink and guessed Cover Me In Sunshine instead even though I didn't think that made the Top 40.

Bugzy Malone - Notorious (forgot this existed, still barely remember it now)

J. Cole - m y . l i f e (I was lucky to get the others by him tbh)
Trippie Redd - Miss the Rage (no chance)
Young Stoner Life - Solid (all I remembered was that it was one word...)

Most popular ones I forgot: Streets, Oliver Twist, Permission To Dance, Favorite Crime, Lost Cause, Ferrari Horses
Least popular ones I remembered: Wasting Time, Lo Vas A Olvidar, Wusyaname, Monster, Late At Night, Lose, Wants And Needs

I particularly enjoyed Heartbreak Anthem and Heartbreak Anniversary being next to each other even though the list was alphabetized by artist, not song title! And even Heat Waves next to them too laugh.gif
