Well, since Livejournal:nunfetishist’s music quiz seemed to prove popular, I thought I’d finish one I started a while ago when Livejournal:gerald_duck was doing them.

Cut — The details
Mine is designed to test more than just your knowledge of music though. There are bonus points available for some trivia based on the quiz contents… After much thought I chose these ten tracks for distinctive intros. I guess for some of you they’ll be easy and for others it’ll be really quite hard. It’s a reasonable cross-section of my musical tastes. Points will be awarded as follows:
  • One point for each correctly named track
  • One point for each correctly named artist or group
  • One point for naming the year that track three is from
  • For tracks four, nine and ten:
    One point for naming the film they’re part of.
  • For track nine:
    One point for working out the tenuous link between a recently topical recreational drug and the track.
That’s a total of 20 points for the tracks and five bonus points available for the extra bits. You can find the quiz here and it contains a README.txt file detailing the scoring above. I will update this post with results as they come in. Please mail them to `terryquiz@digital-scurf.org`.
