Well, since psybucks aren't around any longer, it has been way too long since we had a song game. I decided to make one, to see if people liked it and would participate, even though I have nothing to offer as a reward.

Here's how the song game works:

In one .mp3, there are a mixture of many different songs. Each different song only has a small part of it (5 seconds or so) in the file, and different songs are separated by brief moments of silence. So, you will get many different parts of various songs playing back to you one after another. The object is to name as many of the songs as you can (1 point for artist, and 1 point for song name). Looking up lyrics or any other way you might find to give yourself an advantage is discouraged, but I honestly have no way to know if you do so.

In this specific song game, there are 20 songs, and all of them can be considered in the "classic rock" genre. Since this is the first song game I have made, I chose some fairly well known songs, and non-obscure portions of them, so this can be a sort of test.

Do not (DO NOT) post any of your answers in this thread. Instead, send me a private message with the subject "Song Game", and number 1-20 with your guesses beside each number. After one week (Friday, July 17), I will post how everybody did.

The file containing the song game (songgame.mp3) can be found here:

If the above link happens to expire (it shouldn't), use this as a backup (it's the same file):

If this goes well, I may make another game with a greater number of songs, and more challenging parts. Good luck to everyone! :)

Well, it's Friday again, so here are the results:

Skull Kid - 23 points

Here were the correct answers:
1. Journey - Lights
2. .38 Special - Hold On Loosely
3. Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator
4. Bachman-Turner Overdrive - You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
5. Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear The Reaper
6. Yes - I've Seen All Good People

8. Van Halen - Me Wise Magic
9. U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name
10. Bon Jovi - Blaze of Glory
11. Boston - Peace of Mind
12. Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run
13. Cream - White Room
14. Deep Purple - Woman From Tokyo

17. Styx - The Best of Times
18. Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains The Same
19. Pink Floyd - The Great Gig in the Sky
20. Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell


Good job on the entries, guys. It seem #2 and #16 were stumpers, as well as the title of #8 (if you don't know it, check it out, it's my favorite Van Halen song). Thanks to those who participated, but seeing as there were only 2 I probably will not make another one.
