Thanks to everyone who indulged me by participating in my piano clips challenge. The scoring was a little nebulous, but it looks like Rich Kamerman burnt his fuse out there alone for the highest score.
This week you need to fill in the gaps for fifty 1979 hits.
Like always, it’s a reminder of how pop music charts mix the sublime and the ridiculous, and that everyone’s definition of each is different. For the record, I hate the Dr. Hook song (and I still think the abstinence movement is missing a trick by not using ‘Sharing the Night Together’ as their signature song, maybe in conjunction with childbirth footage…..). I also think ‘What A ____ Believes’ is a work of genius, despite not enjoying most of Michael McDonald’s back-catalogue.
I scored 50/50 in 4:12. Can you beat my time? I was a bit slow as I had to use elimination for the last few. Do you have a favourite song in the bunch?
