Name that song! Plug in any composer, band, album genre, year or style into the address bar and get a little personalized quiz.

Some of my favorite impossible ones were Various, Nature Sounds, Answering Machines, Sound Effects Records and Birthday songs

i did the quiz on there, and i have never heard that band before and yet i got a 7/10. As my professor would say...good enough for a government job!

Am I supposed to hear music? It's a little tricky otherwise. (Linux/Firefox)

Works in, not the name of a group, an observation about the site...I plugged in Roxy Music, got 3 right, then the thing froze up on me and wouldn't advance at all.

Nice idea, but maybe in need of a better server?

It's kinda cheating that it shows you the album cover too, as more often than not, only one of their options comes from that album, so I managed to answer about seven questions from a Genesis quiz without needing wait for the music to load!

What's worrisome is that I've recognized every They Might Be Giants song it's come up with inside five seconds.

Worked fine for me using Netscape 7 here at work. I got 10/10 on the k.d. lang version.
