Music Quiz: Spotify Results and Follow That Lyric – 1980s

We’ve had 20 weeks of Spotify quizzes – congratulations to Sheik Yerbouti for the overall victory. Sheik scored 390 of a possible 400, which is equivalent to only missing one clue every second week over the competition. Tony finished a very close second, only one point behind first place, while Scott led the peloton with 374. Congratulations to everyone who hung in there for the full 20 weeks. I publicly displayed holes in my musical knowledge – looks like I need to bone up on Snoop Dogg and take flight with The Yardbirds.

Here are the official results:

  1. SCORE
    27/30… curse you…I now have Bon J in my head.
    Well I wasn’t far away from going up a notch or two…I’ll try to better next time. It was a lot of fun.

  2. 30 – I had to skip a couple and then come back by process of elimination.
    Thanks for hosting the quizzes, I am delighted to earn what my brother calls the “Canada Bronze” (as in the Olympics, we tend to finish well but just off the podium) – 4th place!

  3. 30/30, 3:06 left. Woot! Had to keep skipping some of them till I was down to the vital few. Then the answers for those were obvious.

  4. Oh yeah baby – 30 for 30 with 2:51 left; i guess 80s music is my thing. Nice change from the Spotify marathon. 🙂

  5. And want to give kudos to our winners in the Spotify challenge – I am humbled to be in the presence of such vast musical knowldege. And thanks Graham for doing these – they are definitely a highlight of my week.
