Weekly Music Quiz: Going Solo?

Congratulations to Jim S,Rich, Tony, and Aaron, who all bought sexy back and recorded perfect scores in last week’s trivia quiz.

In this week’s quiz, you need to tell the system if a song is from a solo act, or from its parent band.

I was a little sloppy with my 26/30 – I’m pretty sure it’s easily beatable.


  1. We made sexy great again. Tied, 26/30. Wild guesses got me nowhere this time. Although that said, how is it I can name any song by Justin Timberlake or Black Eyed Peas?

      • Not “pop” – I’d rather go to the dentist. But I do occasionally feature new(-ish) artists. The challenge is to listen often enough and hard enough to get inside unfamiliar styles (or new expressions of familiar styles). Closest I get is electronic artist such as Zombi or Boards of Canada.

    • No problem – I think I was pretty similar, except that I just flaked out on the No Doubt one. It’s a bit hard to seperate out the band and the solo artist when you’re working quickly.
