Subject: Karen's First Ever Audio Quiz! (DONE!)

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 09/01/10 at 3:23 pm

Hi folks!  :D

I know it's been ages since I made and posted a quiz, but with Andrea's wonderful instructions I think I've finally managed to whip up an audio quiz!  8)

Because this is my first effort, there are only 20 clips...so I'm gonna have to set the limit at 3.

All clips are from the beginnings of songs that came out in the 1980's.  Good luck!  :)

Hey, if I can do it then surely you can!!  ;)

#20. 'Weather With You' - Crowded House (wasn't that more 90s than 80s?  ???)


Thank you, Paul!  :)

Um...you were the one who sent me 'Weather With You', and knowing that Crowded House was more of an 80's band, I just figured it was from the same time... :-[

Anyway, all of your answers are correct!

Karen! So nice to see another quiz from you. Seems like it's been ages!!

Anyhoo, I know several of the unanswered songs on here, so let me pick my top three:

Number 6 is "Into The Night" by Benny Mardones.
Number 11 is "Ah Leah" by Donnie Iris.
And number 13 is "More Than This" by Roxy Music.

Thanks, Jeff!  :)

Since I got involved in making pottery again, I hadn't been doing any quizzes...

But then I saw Andrea's audio quiz...and since I'd been wanting to learn how to do those for a long time, I asked her and she was very kind and told me just what was involved in these...

Now that I know how to do them, I'll probably be doing a bunch more!  :D

Ah. New hobbies and other items of interest can take away from the usual. I worked a temporary job for three months this year, so I couldn't be here quite as much during the day during that time.

I've wanted to do one too, but I'm pretty sure there are certain steps involved in creating one.

This isn't a 'new' hobby...it's something I've been doing for years, but put on the 'back burner' once I had my kids...

Now I'm selling my wares on eBay and getting a few special orders every now and then, so that's what I've been concentrating on as of late... :)


I'm glad that you found some temporary work...hopefully it won't be long before you get something more permanent!

Understood. :)

Aha! So that's why you've not been around much as of late. Best of luck on that.

Yep, too bad the job was temporary. But I loved it!
