This doesn't work so well as a clickable game. I didn't realize I was supposed to click the next button if I passed on answering an intro, and I couldn't see all of the answers and the timer with the drum clips at the same time.

I shoulda learned to play them drums

@trusting365 - I've always found audio games to be tricky. If you ever start to play a game, and you have a misunderstanding about how it works after you've already started to play, please hit the Refresh button on your browser so that you can start the game again. (You will not be charged a Game Play for an aborted start.) I've played enough audio games at Sporcle where you have to think of the answer, type the answer, hit the pause button on the audio file, and then try to figure out which time section you are answering for. The absolutely worst development for audio quizzes has been a change at youtube where the timer at the bottom of the video file keeps disappearing. It didn't used to do that, did it? I had to edit the time cues into the video section as far down on the screen as possible to try to compensate for this. I can change the answer buttons to a smaller size. If anybody thinks that the answer buttons are now too small, please let me know in this comment section. Thanks.

The size is good now. Maybe you could add a note though about needing to hit the next button after songs you don't guess.

Thanks for brainwashing me into taking accordion lessons, Mom. Now I'll never be in a Sporcle quiz.

Doesn't work as a clickable game! Skipping is too confusing and you lose your place easily! Redesign it as a typing game and you're good.
Apr 14th, 2013 at 03:16 GMT
I really like this as a clickable game. It helped that you put the time cues on the video.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 00:14 GMT
This didn't work well for me. I would click on an answer I knew was right, but the box would wiggle, making me think it was wrong. If I really hit it hard, after one or two more times, it would accept my answer. This didn't happen every time, but enough.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 03:22 GMT
I also think this would work better without the clickable format. Also, what version of No One Is To Blame is in the quiz? I assumed it was Howard Jones but I checked the CD and the song has a piano introduction.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 13:27 GMT
@estivator - I've experienced a very slight wiggle in Clickable quizzes in Firefox but not in Chrome or Internet Explorer. It's possible that because your device has to download and play the youtube video during the quiz, it is experiencing a lag. I'll test whether there is a better hosting site for any future audio quizzes. @Rubidium - It's definitely Howard Jones. The version that I am familiar with and own is the version that was played on the radio in the Northeast United States. The piano does not enter the song until after 28 seconds of intro by other instruments. I know that he has different recordings of the song from checking the MP3 download section of amazon.com.

Mickey isn't just drums.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 14:40 GMT
@Rubidium2 - I just realized that I can easily send you to youtube so that you can hear the Howard Jones track that I am using - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2V3SNrkpp0 @honkytonkman - many tracks in this quiz are not just drums.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 22:06 GMT
I mean bass is also being played in the drum intro. It's not being played tonally, but rather like percussion. You can keep it as part of the "drum intro" but there is a bass that's plugged in, being recorded, and part of the sound.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 22:08 GMT
(Maybe guitar too.)
Apr 16th, 2013 at 00:13 GMT
@honkytonkman - I do have a Game Note at the top of the quiz - "* includes other forms of percussion - drum machines, cymbals, cowbells, tambourines, etc." The etc. would include clapping, breathing, yelling, stomping and, as you have said in your last Comment, anything "not being played tonally, but rather like percussion". I did strive to avoid any trace of melody in the intros.

@JoeBeta - Thanks for the link! Apparently the song was re-recorded and released as a single in 1986. Your version is the single version while the version I own is the album version. And seeing as how I was two when the single was released that would explain why we know different versions. Fun fact: The drums on your version are played by none other than Phil Collins!
Apr 17th, 2013 at 16:13 GMT
Cool bit about Phil Collins. Not sure how excited I am though, as I much prefer his 70's output with Genesis (before Gabriel left).
