    Got the first one wrong, for cultural differences — sorry, but my knowledge of '70s American tv show themes is limited being a Brazilian born in the '80s. Barney who?

    And the Journey one. What's with the all-Journey question? I mean, an all-Beatles question could at least have four famous, possibly familiar songs to choose from. But Journey? :p

    The rest was easy.

    All in all, not the most life-changing test, but a fun way to waste two minutes. :)

    9/10 :spit:

    I missed the Message in a Bottle. Too simple of a line a guess. :meh:

  8. 8/10 :rollno: Got the Journey one wrong and the Four Seasons one wrong too.
  9. Got 10/10 but a few were tricky. Message in a Bottle was odd, I usually play it a little differently, but I also didn't learn it note-for-note. The December 1963 took me a little also, until I recognized the chord progression.
  10. missed message in a bottle 9/10

    I got 10 of 10, meaning the quiz is too easy.

    Message in a bottle seemed off to me too. And I used to play it quite close to the original! I got 7/10. I am not familiar with 60's and 70's bass lines. If it's rock orientated - then I have it.
  16. Alright, 8/10 but the Message In A Bottle was WRONG and who the hell is Barney Miller???
