Harder than the famous person version, where you could try to form common first or last names before figuring out the person. That is somewhat mitigated by the fact you can name random artists--though if you don't know who did a particular song, there's a certain creek waiting. Lastly, it's your quiz, but I couldn't help but be disappointed that Proud Mary didn't make this quiz (but it's a good quiz as usual).

@hscer: Proud Mary is only not on because it was famous by two artists. CCR who originally recorded the song, and still do it best, and Ike & Tina Turner who did a marvelous cover that regularly gets palely imitated on American Idol. Also, because a sad percentage of people think the title is Rolling On The River. (And if any of you went "oh,
song" when you read the last sentence, then you and I can never be close friends. Kidding.)

Woohoo!!! Got them all!!! Fun quiz!

There must be more famous 9-letter songs out there than "Paralyzer" by Finger Eleven and "Holly Holly" by Neil Diamond. With Proud Mary, couldn't you just have the official answer be CCR, and then have Ike & Tina as an alternate answer? You said it yourself - the people who think the title is "Rolling on the River" aren't worth considering.

This quiz grew on me immensely as I went. However, since it's their biggest hit on the charts, I'd consider accepting System of a Down for Hypnotize.

62.1% of all the takers of this quiz only got one right? that doesn't seem right or reasonable.

@Fidelio: There are many more famous, but often they are recycled titles. For example, Beautiful, C'est La Vie, Dangerous, Breakaway, Drift Away, Good Thing, Funkytown...
But they've all been hits by more than one artist. I was trying to keep that part of the solving simple.

I've added the actual song titles as extras, so if you type one of those in, you'll get acknowledgment that you're on the right path.

@rockgolf fair enough. But I must admit, I can't be close friends with anyone who thinks it's Rolling on the River (or people who think Baba O'Riley is Teenage Wasteland)--or with people who think the Turners did it first. (Actually, it's more of a don't ask, don't tell thing ;p)

Did anyone else, after seeing the quiz title, think "number nine...number nine...number nine...number nine..."

I've got two easy ones for you- "Say Say Say" by Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson, and "Hot Hot Hot" by Buster Poindexter
