Wang Chung was not George Michael- that was Wham! You also give way too much time- seven minutes to type 140 letters seems unnecessary, especially when the game isn't particularly hard (I was able to get them all within a couple of minutes even though I didn't actually know a few of the answers). And speaking of unnecessary: while it's not expressly forbidden, you have words that aren't needed; you don't have to go from "lose" to "rose" to "nose" when you can skip straight from "lose" to "nose".

since when is the Outfield a one hit wonder? All the Love, Voices of Babylon, Since You've Been Gone, For You and more were also hits
May 6th, 2010 at 04:25 GMT
they were maybe hits in the UK or overseas elswhere, but 'Your Love' is pretty much the band's only hit. I know most of the other songs were relased in the US, but to call them hits is stretching it a bit.
May 6th, 2010 at 04:33 GMT
a pretty decent quiz, but do you really have to editorialize with "one of the worst songs ever"?
May 6th, 2010 at 04:46 GMT
yes AHK, yes i do.
May 6th, 2010 at 06:54 GMT
^haha! i thought this was great, but i agree that less time would make it more challenging! maybe 3 minutes?
May 6th, 2010 at 16:21 GMT
Yeah, you need to prune your word ladder. You cannot change the same position twice in a row. It makes the ladder ugly, and harder to solve. So for LOVE->???->LOSE you have 24 possible words since the same letter changed. However, with BONO->???-> SONG, you only have BONG and SONO as possible middle rung answers. Also, it makes people not try to change certain letters, i.e., the one that changed last time, and they'll miss rungs.

Pretty fun, I liked it. I've been waiting for music version since I love sproutcm's word ladders. But I agree with ^, it seems like these are a bit more complex than it seems, and the little things do make a difference. Nice attempt though, and I still enjoyed it.
May 6th, 2010 at 19:25 GMT
Penny WHICH was in the Beatles' ears and eyes. It's not a person, you know...? Anyway, great quiz. I don't think changing the same letter twice in a row is a problem.
May 6th, 2010 at 19:48 GMT
What? You're calling "Red Red Wine" one of the worst songs ever? How dare you!
May 6th, 2010 at 21:01 GMT
UB40 actually covered Neil Diamond, and the original version isn't terrible. Neither is their cover really.
May 6th, 2010 at 21:17 GMT
The Outfield's song is just called "Your Love." Reword it as somethng like 'What The Outfield don't want to do with your love in their '80s one hit wonder."
May 6th, 2010 at 22:56 GMT
I agree with 'Saulmeister'... good songs both. I'm curious as to what the creator of this quiz considers great songs...
May 7th, 2010 at 03:00 GMT
squinta...great songs = Backstreets (Springsteen); Don't Think Twice (Social Distortion version); The Man in Me (Bob Dylan); Swing Life Away (Rise Against); Anything, Anything (Dramarama); Unknown Legend (Neil Young); Forgotten Years (Midnight Oil); Inbetween Days (The Cure); The Long Way Home (Tom Waits); Alex Chilton (The Replacements); Your Wildest Dreams (Moody Blues); Let Me In (Save Ferris); Fairytale of New York (Pogues)
May 7th, 2010 at 05:55 GMT
I hate to be nitpicky, The Outfield had 10 top 50 songs on the US Mainstream Rock Charts and 8 make Billboard's Hot 100 chart. True "Your Love" is by far their most recognizable but it not really accurate to call them a one hit wonder. Good quiz overall though.
