Music Quiz: Duets

Congratulations to Boppins and Tony, who scored the only 15/15s in last week’s quiz.

This week’s quiz concerns duets. Pick the pair of artists responsible for each song at https://www.sporcle.com/games/elviravastag/duets-1

I’m not a big fan of all of the featured songs, as I feel like duets often tend towards treacly sentimentality, but there are a few classics in this bunch like ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’.

I scored a crisp 27/30 – can you beat me?

  1. 21 for me. Not the best, but I could have played that all night and still wouldn’t have gotten any of the remaining 9.

    • It’ll be interesting to see how other people get on. I think the Sporcle average was 18/30, so 21 is pretty decent.

      • I guess the mix of dates and genres makes it more challenging than some of the others… it was interesting how many of the songs and duet couples I knew, but I just couldn’t match them up.

  2. I’m not sure if 20/30 still gets classified as crisp – but it’s the equivalent to Meat Loaf’s musical fraction, so I suppose it ain’t bad!

  3. Wow! Hardest one yet, IMHO. 17/30. Senza una donna? That’s a song?

  4. I was one shy of our host this week with a respectable 26/30. Got the first 24 with no problem, missed with a guess, got the next one with a guess and then crapped out. Tough one but enjoyable as always.

  5. I ran out of time and missed a ton. Not even sure what my score was.

  6. 24/30. Stumbled on the recent stuff. The pre 90s duets were easier. Promiscuous I have heard the most times of those- when I worked in a place was on the radio constantly!

  7. A frustrating 28 on this one. Not only have I got ‘Barcelona’ stuck in my head but I notice that there are some atrocious songs on this list and Paul McCartney is responsible for too many of them.

  8. Haha I got 19/30, a poor showing for me because I apparently haven’t paid much attention to duets since the 90s.

  9. Also, thrilled to see Freeise and Montserrat in there. I love that track. It was a drinking song for the girls on the floor above us in uni rez. Long story.
