Weekly Music Quiz – Unusual Instruments

Congratulations to Rich, Geoff, and Tony for scoring perfect marks in last week’s quiz on Russian Dolls.

I found this week’s quiz very educational. It’s about the use of unusual instruments in pop songs, and I’ve never thought about what creates the sounds on some of some of these iconic songs. It’s easy to take the sound of an ocarina for granted, when you’ve heard it on a famous song so often.

I scored 26/36, which I’m sure will be beaten easily. Please note that you need to enter the song name and the artist name separately. I struggled with the a few of the 1960s’ songs. I also maintain the best use of an oboe is by The Go-Betweens in ‘Bye Bye Pride’.

What did you score?

    • I had trouble typing the Floyd song. I think my subconscious was trying to type your instead of you. I’m pretty sure I had 3 out of the 5 songs I missed in my music library, just not familiar enough with them.
