Congratulations to Tony, who caffeined up and motored through last week’s Flip Flop albums quiz.
This week is straightforward after last time’s visual hysteria. You just need to name the band given the song.
I scored 35/38 – I think that was a pretty good effort, as the median score was 41%. The three I missed were all from the early 2000s, and I’d argue that a couple of them are very obscure now.
Has anyone seen these charts of most popular Spotify songs by decade:
It’s pretty fascinating – the 1950s is dominated by Christmas tunes. It’s also interesting how popular vintage rock like AC/DC, Queen, and The White Stripes is, given the current paucity of guitar rock in the charts. There are barely any female artists on the charts in the 20th century – Ella Fitzgerald is the only one without a Christmas song I think.
