    Ladies and gents, annouuncing the return of the good old music quiz we all know and love, formerly done by Heretic_Cata way back when.

    Anyway, the premise is simple; I have for you a whole pile of sound clips from various songs I pick out of my playlist. Each of them has a certain difficulty level associated with it. Get the song right, and you get points.

    Now, here's the scoring system: -

    There are 10 songs in Level 1 (worth 1 point each), 5 songs in Level 2 (worth 5 points each) and 3 songs in Level 3 (worth 10 points each). If you guess all the songs correctly, you'll get a Completion Bonus - 5 points for Level 1, 10 points for Level 2 and 20 points for Level 3 rounding it off nicely to 100 points total.

    All attempts should be PMed to me by Monday, 16th February 2009 at 3:00 a.m. GMT

    HINT: If you find some clips rather irritatingly short, try looping them. Most of them are the main hooks of the song.

    Here are your songs: -

    All Songs conveniently in one rar file

    All Unguessed Songs in one rar file

    ----

    Level 1
    101 - We start on a little upbeat song everyone who owns a radio should know
    101A
    Spoiler 101 :


    102 - And then everyone who owned a radio in 1972 should know (year was pulled out of my arse for the record)


    103 - Considering where I live, bands from this part of the world should feature quite a bit


    104 - This clip occurs before the most epic bit of the song
    104A


    105 - A bit of lyrics for you, with luck you can continue the sentence
    105A


    106 - Awesomest drum entry. Also a case of song necromancy
    Spoiler 106 :
    Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight
    For the necromancy reference, look at this video


    107 - A nice long clip
    Spoiler 107 :


    108 - One of the more awesome drum licks I've heard


    109 - Hint. Mushrooms.


    110 - They were awesome, then their new stuff sucked.
    Spoiler 110 :


    ----

    Level 2
    201 - I'm a bassist, so I'd love this lick
    Spoiler 201 :
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - C'Mon Girl
    This wasn't a single, so no video for this


    202 - His other more famous song has often been mistaken to be sung by a dude who recently had his birthday
    Spoiler 202 :
    Bobby McFerrin - Thinkin' About Your Body
    He's done Don't Worry Be Happy, but that song is usually blamed on Bob Marley


    203 - This band is pretty underground.
    203A


    204 - Inspiration time!


    205 - I've just noticed the last three songs are by artists from the same country


    ----

    Level 3

    301 - Has one of the awesomest music videos - ever.
    301A


    302 - The (very short) intro to a scream
    302A
    Spoiler 302 :
    Underoath - It's Dangerous Business Walking Out of Your Front Door
    Wait for the refrain to end, awesome song


    303 - And to finish it off, a rather obscure band I heard on the radio when I was in high school.


    Good job, guys :D

    15 years ago, a very good proportion of these songs wouldn't have existed..

    Allrighty, I may have a clear shot at at least 3 points. So, expect a little PM sometime later.

    And thanks for putting this up. It's been a while since we had one.
