Music Decades Quiz: Week 1, 1960s

For the next 6 weeks, you’re invited to join a decades quiz – as well as having a weekly winner, I’ll tabulate our scores to find a champion across the different decades of pop (from the 1960s to the current decade).

Let’s start with the 1960s. This quiz gives you 3 song names, and you need to identify the artists. Note, there was one flaw I notice – the quiz wanted a quartet, when the answer to me seemed to be a trio. If you have trouble, put some Neil at the end.

I scored 44/50, once I gave myself a point for the issue that I pointed out above. So my first round score is 88%.

Congratulations to Tony, who was the best of the challengers in last week’s quiz, with 37/40.


  1. 49/50. Damn, Sam. That one went by fast. The one I missed is the “I wanna be your dog” guys. I think I’ll do well in the 70’s, OK in the 80’s and then all downhill from there.

  2. Whew, that was fun…maybe because most of them were very easy. My final score was 47/50. I should have gotten at least one (a certain blind piano-playing genius)…not sure how I missed it…and the other two I know but would not have remembered if I had an extra 10 minutes to complete the quiz. I expect several perfect scores this week but I’m very pleased with my performance. Bring on the ’70s!

    1. It’s amazing how “blind piano-playing genius”can refer to more than one person in pop music. I think we’ll jump forward to a more recent decade next week, and save the middle decades (80s and 90s) to sort out the winners.


    1. I got that one, although it is a handful to type. I couldn’t remember the Crimson and Clover guy and his band, which is similar though. If I remember correctly, you didn’t do so well in the last 60s quiz, so that’s a good score.


      1. I found that out with Creedence…when I finally did CCR… I will do that next time. Me just trying to hurry and mistype doesn’t help.

        Another stupid thing I did…I tried Janis Joplin twice…until it hit me…duh….band. Big….

  3. 33 of 50 – took me way longer than I thought it would to answer and kind of ran out of time. Will have to really kick butt in future ones to have a chance to catch up
