The Beatles Logic Puzzle
Can You Name The Leader of Kpo...

Pretty obscure on "O", when there's a 2-word answer by either Paul Young or the Chi-Lites, and even a 3-word answer from Ringo Starr. Also the "X" song was officially credited to both Olivia Newton-John and Electric Light Orchestra.
Mar 27th, 2012 at 17:01 GMT
Possible 2-word alternate for "W": Cameo.
Mar 27th, 2012 at 21:58 GMT
For "Dreams," I wonder if the Cranberries' version is more well-known. Also "Bodies" by Drowning Pool, instead of the Sex Pistols. Also maybe Helena by My Chemical Romance.
Mar 28th, 2012 at 00:35 GMT
Thanks, rockgolf and the worryrock. I was trying to steer clear of 2-word answers, though I'm not sure why. I guess it felt a bit like a cheat. I think "Dreams" is fairly well known. There are many other D options I could replace it with. I believe Rush also had the X song, but I will add ELO to the hint.
Mar 28th, 2012 at 03:06 GMT
Rush did have the X song. And it's vastly superior.

As it turns out, since the quiz was written, two of the more obscure answers (D & L) that were originally attributed to Van Morrison and Journey respectively have been reused as titles by Jessie J and Ellie Goulding.
So if you're a female solo British singer looking to score a US top ten hit, you still have 24 titles to choose from.

"A" Elvis Costello: I know that one, that's Allison. Wait, that's 7 letters....SMH
Sep 26th, 2012 at 18:32 GMT
Why does "THEEND" not work for the Beatles?
Sep 26th, 2012 at 19:13 GMT
@Ajaxfam: Because you're the first person to think of that. Well done! Added, thx.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 19:44 GMT
@rockgolf: Figures. I was honestly just thinking that if both of those clues were Van Morrison and Journey, I would've gotten them right! Ugh...
Sep 26th, 2012 at 19:54 GMT
A great quiz! However, the last track of "Works" could work for the "E" answer.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:05 GMT
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:07 GMT
@rer2121: Good catch. Added.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:09 GMT
@neverevenout: Clearly an Ellie Oops. Fixed.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 20:34 GMT
That New Order song is well worth a listen.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 21:40 GMT
@rockgolf: Only 23. While most folks consider ONJ to be an Aussie, she's not a native; she was born in the UK. By the time she made her big mid-1970s US successes, she'd actually spent more time in the UK than she had in Australia. (Minor nitpicky technicality, I know.)

Out of curiosity, I tried to find the most popular six-letter song that begins with "Q". It ended up not being about popularity, as I only found "Q Samba" by Arto Lindsay. Am I missing a more famous one?
Sep 26th, 2012 at 22:47 GMT
The Drowning Pool song for B - a.k.a. the soundtrack for roughly 90% of annoying YouTube videos.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 23:31 GMT
@AHK: Only Q song I could find by an artist I've even heard of is Quando by Laura Pausini.
Sep 26th, 2012 at 23:33 GMT
I couldn't name a single Jessie J song, and I have no idea who Ellie Goulding is. Am I alone here? It's too bad those clues changed. Tough but fun quiz.
Sep 27th, 2012 at 03:31 GMT
Does her song being number one guessed on this quiz fit in to Alanis' definition of Ironic?
Sep 27th, 2012 at 04:06 GMT
@jkoper: Agreed - and likewise, I had no idea on G, but I would have gotten it if the artist had been Laura Branigan.
Sep 27th, 2012 at 04:40 GMT
"Oh Girl" originally (and better) done by the Chi-Lites
Sep 27th, 2012 at 13:04 GMT
@Jkoper: I want quizzes like this to have as wide an appeal as possible so I'll mix up old school and current material so that it doesn't just appeal to players of a specific age. I swapped out 3 artist clue for the same titles when this quiz was at about 1900 plays. Since the switch from Van Morrison to Jessie J, the answer rate is virtually unchanged - 21.4% got Van, and now it's 24.4%. But with Journey as a clue only 16.5% got Lights. With Ellie, that's increased to 23%. The biggest bump was for Bodies, which was at about 5% when Sex Pistols was the clue and up to 19% when Drowning Pool is the clue.
If you have no idea who Ellie Goulding is, then you've missed one of the better and biggest songs out this year. Give her a try.

If anybody were still airing Drew Carey in syndication, I bet I wouldn't have missed PANAMA by Van Halen.
Sep 27th, 2012 at 21:18 GMT
@MSUKent: Age showing, age showing. Shadows of Knight reached #10 w/the 'G' song. Not to mention the cover version by the widow of Fred 'Sonic' Smith. And probably every garage band in the history of rock n roll

Giving a shout-out to the best version of Xandadu, which is by Rush.
Sep 30th, 2012 at 21:07 GMT
Wow, that was tough.
