Music Quiz – Greatest Hits

Congratulations to Tony and to 2Loud2OldMusic, who both scored full marks in last week’s debut album quiz.

This week we’re looking at the other end of artists’ careers – the compilation. Can you name the artists that released iconically titled compilations. In a piece of related trivia, I learned today that The Fall’s 50,000 Fall Fans Can’t Be Wrong has sold 48,700 copies.

I scored 20/20 – can you also score full marks?

    1. I actually did this quiz 6 months ago and added it to my list. I don’t think I would have got that one right 6 months later – was obviously in my short term memory at the time.

        1. Exactly! In fact, Rich’s excellent Kamertunes blog had a whole series on that: compilation or discography? Superb stuff. It’s here:

          Sometimes I go overboard, like with the Stones. I own all the albums (on CD, though I would LOVE to get them all on LP it’s not likely to happen). AND I also own all the Hits compilations! Because Stones. And so on. 😉

  1. As usual, I didn’t come close to winning the battle. I’m satisfied with 13/20, the competition are more knowledgeable, and I didn’t know the greatest hits I missed. Adding Joy to the World: Their Greatest Hits to my list!
