Subject: Cover Me - A Cover Versions Audio Quiz - Complete

Written By: RobertK on 06/27/07 at 9:36 am

I thought I would take a two quiz break from the non-word quizzes and try something else.  The quiz will deal with hit songs that have been performed by multiple artists.  The next quiz will be the same but different.  (That's a hint) ;)

NOTE:  The point scale is different in this game.  Each part of an answer is worth one point.    So for example, if you guess song #1's title and the three artists who performed in the sample, it would be worth four points. As a result of awarding a point for each part of a correct answer, the initial limit is 12 points.  Enjoy!

Good job Gaylon.  I'm  thin kyou mistyped for 18 for 15, but you still get credit.  You have all these right!  8)  CCR's  version of "Grapevine" slipped my mind.  It would have been a good add.
