If anything needs fixed let me know and I'll add/change it, thanks.

Really neat quiz - hope to see more like this!
Mar 23rd, 2012 at 18:17 GMT
Little thing: I think the official title is 'Over the Rainbow' without the 'Somewhere'. Very nice quiz though !
Mar 24th, 2012 at 14:40 GMT
Thanks lana & h0limkill - I'll need to change that one.

The Robinson song was actually credited to Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, so that's not quite fair. Pretty tough, especially with some of the UK-only hits, but I really enjoyed it.

Good quiz. You go to lots of genres and different levels of familiar songs. Thanks for the work.

I like how Dancing in the Dark becomes Born in the USA...
Jun 21st, 2012 at 18:41 GMT
very good quiz but the coloring scheme is horrible
Jun 21st, 2012 at 18:56 GMT
I agree with sub. It is very difficult to read across the columns. Maybe alternating colors for the rows?

Who is Aloe Blacc? Fun quiz though.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 19:22 GMT
@NickD: If this quiz introduces some North Americans to "I Need A Dollar", it's worth losing a few point. Good old-style soul song.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 20:45 GMT
I was wracking my brain trying to think of singers named "Roy", and in spite of the fact that I have several songs by the correct answer all I could come up with was Clark. (I also thought of Halladay, Firestone, and Rogers for what it's worth.)
Jun 21st, 2012 at 20:48 GMT
@rockgolf: "I Need A Dollar" is a great song. I'd never heard of Aloe Blacc but through the power of Youtube I discovered a great new soul singer. Soul-less, manufactured R&B is dreck. This is the real deal.
Comment below threshold:

But Tracey Chapman has only recorded 2 songs. Ever.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 20:57 GMT
lol I tried 'Bruce Wayne' xD
Jun 21st, 2012 at 21:22 GMT
@barnztormre: At least you were coming up with real people. I panicked and could only come up with Roy Hobbs.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 21:43 GMT
Why not head the last two columns Artist.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 21:52 GMT
@KerrieBee: Good idea in theory, but "Group by Same Clue" is limited to 5 columns. To get 6, Manonthemoon had to just have answers with no clues.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 23:04 GMT
@rockgolf: I think most North Americans have heard "I Need A Dollar". It's just that most of us don't know who sings it.
Jun 21st, 2012 at 23:38 GMT
BORN (in the usa) comes up when typing (john, i'm only) DANCING. It seems it was 'Dancing in the Dark' and changed, but not completely.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 00:54 GMT
Hi. @burywmore & all - thanks for playing and for the positive feedback about the quiz - I think the wallpaper would have been changed to try and add more definition to each of the rows - it seems it's not to everyone's liking but it was done with good intention and many thanks, Sporcle. I've been working on some more of these and have made a couple of size adjustments to hopefully improve that aspect of it in the future. @TheLuggage - Born in the USA & Dancing in the Dark both fit the same clue & dancing also fits into another clue. There's one or two that have double answers :) Thanks, rockgolf.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 00:59 GMT
I think it's too long. Go with half the answers and half the time.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 01:20 GMT
^ I'm planning to do some of different sizes & times too :)
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 01:34 GMT
I think I saw most of these in a jukebox somewhere. Oh yeah, hell.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 01:40 GMT
Racing in the Street can fit for Springsteen.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 03:02 GMT
For Willie Nelson, my brain went straight to "Georgia On My Mind" and froze there. Great quiz!
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 03:07 GMT
The only Aloe I know is Vera...and yes I tried it. You never know on Sporcle.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 03:33 GMT
This isn't a particularly difficult quiz but I couldn't finish it because the format and colour scheme was giving me a headache. Shame.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 04:09 GMT
I don't know about crediting Susan _____ with that song. Yes, she sang it and became famous for it, but it's like listing William Hung with "She Bangs" instead of Ricky Martin.
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 06:31 GMT
This is kind of nit-picky, but Jay-Z actually sings "Empire State of Mind." Alicia Keys is just the featured performer. Good quiz though!
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 09:35 GMT
For years I thought Neil Diamond was singing 'Reverend Blue Jeans' - my mum had it on a cassette and I didn't know the title. I figured it was about a young trendy vicar.

@jobean82 KoQ Fan?

I tried "Steve" for Perry three times and "Bolton" for Michael a couple of times. On those two I'd suggest reversing the given names in the puzzle; there are a lot of Perrys and Michaels. Give us something to work with.

I get Dusty Springfield confused with Buffalo Springfield.
