Congratulations to Tony and EclecticMusicLover, who both scored 12/12 in last week’s quiz.
This week it’s all about commercial juggernauts – albums with at least four top ten hits. It ranges from the 1970s to the 2010s and is pop-centric. You need to be a little careful between multiple albums from the same artist (including a Wham album and a George Michael solo album).
I scored 25/25, although I needed some educated guessing between Fergie and Drake at the end. I had 1:36 remaining.
Are there any fans of R. Stevie Moore out there? I’d never heard of him until recently, but he’s the son of renowned session bassist Bob Moore and has released 400 self-released albums in a prolific career.

23/25 for me, as I didn’t notice two Janet Jackson albums. Otherwise I might have been able to get a perfect score. I enjoyed this one a lot.
The two Janet Jackson albums are among my favourites on this list actually.
12/25. Didn’t recognize quite a few of them. No surprise. I stopped listening to popular music 20 years ago.
I counted and I only 5 of those albums in my Itunes library – and 3 of them are by Jackson siblings.
This was easy for me. 25/25 with 3:28 to spare. The hardest part was having to scroll up and down to see all the albums.
Yup, it’s up your street for sure. On PC I zoom out sometimes so I can get all the albums on one screen.
16 of 25 – pop music of the last few decades is definitely not in my wheel house.
Yup, it was a pretty genre specific quiz this week.
Stunk the place up with 18/25, I don’t think I would recognise a Fergie song if it stole my wife and raped my cattle
I just knew the title London Bridge.
15/25 and ran out of time. Not at all familiar with most of the music (can you tell?)
There’s a few where I haven’t heard a note but just know some song names.
00:00 Cool sound by R. Stevie Moore…no I can’t say I ever heard of him but it doesn’t sound bad.
Goof work – pretty wide spread of scores this week.
I did not bad! I got 18/25 with 1:45 left! Thanks for the quiz!
Yup, that’s a very good score.
And I’m very proud of it!
