Nice quiz! :) And nice to see you back, too.

Hmm...IDK the Doobie Brothers' and/or Gladys Knight songs either... :-\\ But here's some other guesses:

#2: I'm pretty sure the artist is Rage Against The Machine. I don't know the song, though.
#10: Without Me - Eminem
#20: could the artist be Nirvana, perhaps...? ???
#22:It's A Sin - The Pet Shop Boys

Subject: Re: IEMQ-LO (Initially Easy Music Quiz-Limits Off)

Written By: Henk on 02/18/09 at 3:41 pm

OK, since the limit is off I'm gonna go for some wild guesses...

#1: is the artist Sonny And Cher,by any chance? ???

#4: My Heart Belongs To Me - Britney Spears.  :-\\
I can't keep track of all of her songs (and to be honest, I don't really care about 'em), but it DOES fit the initials given...so I'll give it a shot. :D

#6: if this is what I think it is, there seems to be a D missing: Leave Me Alone (Ruby Red Dress) - Helen Reddy.


#12: is the artist Tina Turner?


Modified to add:
Never mind, I've found out it's not Britney Spears. I couldn't have been more off with that one. ;D
For the sake of this quiz I won't correct my answer, so others still have a chance. ;)

They were the group Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart were in before  Eurythmics.  In the LTE Rice asked a question about the Eurythmics and it reminded me of The Tourists.
