Most competitors beat me in last week’s Homophoney Hits quiz – congratulations to EclecticMusicLover, who scored 15/15.
This week, the challenge is to name albums with their title tracks removed.
I scored 20/24 – can you beat me?
Shortly after I posted last week’s quiz, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young broke their streak of keeping all their members alive with the passing of David Crosby. I was amazed it lasted until 2023. I also learned that Crosby sang backing vocals on Hootie & the Blowfish’s ‘Hold My Hand’.
I’ve published a couple of Genesis articles recently as well – can anyone tell me the link between Genesis and David Crosby?

Just 16/24 for me this week, although I knew the artists for three others, just not the album titles. As for the connection between Crosby and Genesis, the only thing I can think of is Crosby’s backing vocals on Phil Collins’s “Another Day In Paradise.”
Good work. You’re right about ‘Another Day in Paradise’, but I was thinking about something else.
10/24. Let us never speak of this again.
I did so poorly on this that I just gave up. I knew the names of a lot of the bands, just not the albums. As to the connection between David Crosby and Genesis, I’ll go out on a limb here and say it has something to do with Kevin Bacon.
I checked the Oracle of Bacon website – Collins has a Bacon number of 1, and Crosby’s is 2.
There you go. So, what was the connection?
Did you know that Phil Collins reportedly paid for David Crosby’s liver transplant?
Do you know that was the piece of trivia I was looking for with my question?
No I had no idea. I thought it was just that Collins and Crosby had recorded together.
17/24. Not so bad. They were a few I never would have gotten though.
17 is pretty strong.
I did a horrible 4 out of 24. Being a singles and ‘hits’ guy, I simply do not know the titles of most albums.
Yup, familiar pattern – you dominate on the hit song quizzes, not so much on albums.,
18/24… I got the heavy ones like IM, MH, and Met…which is surprising. I guess wrong on the others
Closet metal fan! Good score.
lol…reading blogs by Deke and John.
The thing was all fucked up again. I got up to 16 and then all of a sudden it started showing two lists shrunk down really small and I couldn’t get it to advance. I even started over, which I never do cuz it’s cheating. And it did the exact same thing again.
That’s weird – phone or PC?
Chromebook. I keep forgetting where it works better. I know I got one phone where it always works good but I can’t remember which phone that is.
How many phones do you have!?
Right now I have two active phones. I don’t know why, but I just can’t resist those offers that the phone places have where you get a free phone. Usually you have to trade your own old phone in to get a new one, but sometimes I just keep the old phone and also get the new one. Which is insane. But I do it anyway because it’s nice having more than one phone.
23/24 – I’d heard (we are) the Roadcrew on the radio this week otherwise I’d never have worked that one out. If I’d only paid attention to your choice of banner photo I’d have nailed it this week. More espresso is required
Wow, 23 is impressive. Generally the banner photos are helpful.
6/24 Several I knew the band but couldn’t remember the album title
Thanks for playing!
I did better than I expected and overall it was an interesting challenge.
Yup – great work!
