Very nice work. If you update this weekly will you always keep the 10/20/30/40/50? Or maybe next time have 5/15/25/35/45 years ago. Otherwise the same songs will be on for quite a while.
May 19th, 2011 at 00:16 GMT
I know I'm not the only one who spent a minute typing "Simon and Garfunkel", trying to figure out what I spelled wrong.

Based on the top 4 songs, 1991 was a very horny year.
May 19th, 2011 at 16:49 GMT
I understand that a lot of songs will remain on the quiz for a while. But there will always be around 10 new answers each week which is about 10 more than most quizzes can vouch for. For variety's sake, I will make a separate quiz of 5/15/25/35/45 in the same format to be released this friday night and updated every saturday. Thanks for your input.

What a fantastic idea for a quiz! I'm SO excited about this being a weekly thing! Can you keep it on your editor picks each week, RockGolf so we can easily find it? It might be a little bit of a bummer to see so many of the same songs each week, but adding the 5/15/etc. Friday quiz will help. I love the variety!

Interesting that this week, Shaggy's "Angel" shows up in 2001 and the song it quotes, "Angel of the Morning", shows up in 1981.

@rockgolf: Well I guess I was born in 1991...lol

The question is incorrectly worded. It asks can we name the Top 10 Hits but actually you're giving us the hits and we have to name the artists.
Jun 23rd, 2011 at 04:05 GMT
Wow, you're so right moviegoer, this quiz is terrible due to that fact, you mustve been confused for all 7 minutes. Definitely not as intriguing as you're mindboggling quizzes such as countries that have a letter in them. I understand the rating however, i mean some people only vote as high as they can count.
Jun 23rd, 2011 at 14:00 GMT
I didn't say it was a bad quiz or that I was confused, just pointing out the fact that what the question asks us to name is not what the quiz actually asks us to name. Call me pedantic if you will but I think whatever comes after "Can you name the" in the game question should be the thing that you actually have to name when you play the game.
I had actually rated it 4 Sporcles without even playing it because I like the idea of a continually updated quiz. I suppose now I'll change it just based on the principle that you're an _______________.
Jun 23rd, 2011 at 21:55 GMT
Hahaha, i love it, keep it goin girl, this stupid banter is only gonna help the quiz get noticed.
