    The only thing that would've made the quiz better would be to set up the numbers in a 4-by-3 grid as they appear on a phone (with the # and * keys as well). OR, for a more retro feel, in a circle, to duplicate the look of a rotary dial phone (since those were still the majority of home phones when the song came out).

    Only in Legoland can Iron Maiden look like New Kids on the Block with Aaron Carter sitting in.

    Don't most quizzes on here just accept "Elvis" for Elvis Presley?

    I wish I could give this quiz more than 5 globes, because the five minutes of intense nostalgia I just experienced was priceless :D And @bedfordfalls: Not that you're wrong or anything, but come on. People have been saying that since the song debuted; probably time to let it go.

    I'm always played for a fool on quizzes like this, when I pass the ones I don't know, thinking I'll be able to use the process of elimination.

    Iron Maiden is the least guest when it's the only one whose band logo is in the picture. lol

    @Big_E: Yeah, but the decoy answers offer more scope for coming up with things that should be songs ("If I Were a Dinosaur," "Dude (Looks Like a Robot)," "Set Fire to the Goose," etc.).

    I love it in this kind of quiz when I get it right despite having never heard of the song or band!
