You've got typos in Zeppelin for "Over the Hills." Turns out I never did know the real titles for a lot of these. Good quiz.

Shouldn't be a comma before "Fanny". Good quiz.

How is No Such Thing confusing? The title is in the lyric you've included
Nov 15th, 2012 at 01:47 GMT
Thanks for the comments. To Debbie - You are right. I've fixed it. To Chocolatl - I think the punctuation is correct even after double-checking it. He wants Fannie to take the load off of him. To AHK - I think it's plenty hard already. To dawalke - "No Such Thing" is currently in the bottom 30% of correct answers. "As" is even closer to the bottom. Personally I think "No Such Thing" is a very soft title and instantly forgettable. If you were confused that the title was right there in the lyric given, then that must have been confusing.

I agree with 'dawalke'. If you're going to call 'No Such Thing' a 'confusing' title (which I also don't think it is - he sings it at least three times as part of the chorus), at least don't let the lyric you have include the title. I actually don't think this quiz should even be called 'confusing'. A lot of the titles aren't really confusing - they're just not in the lyrics. For example, 'Annie's Song'? Not confusing - probably just a song that was written for and/or about a woman named Annie. All that being said, I do like this quiz - it's an idea I had and would have created if I weren't too lazy.

I guess whether a title is confusing or not is subjective. In my mind "The Real World" would be a less confusing title, as would "The Halls Of My High School" or even "My High School". It's clearly not as bad as "As" which desperately wants to be titled "Always". As far as confusing goes, I think it would be confusing to someone who was looking for a song that they heard on the radio and then wanted to purchase it in some format. The quiz originally started out as "Badly Titled Songs", but some of these titles are actually quite excellent - "Sympathy For The Devil" for example. Perhaps "Unexpected Song Titles" would be less confusing, but if "Confusing Song Titles" is a confusing title for this quiz, how could I change it?
