Chaka Khan? Chaka Khan? Chaka Khan, let me rock you, let me rock you, Chaka Khan. Let me rock you, that's all I wanna do.

Good tune... think that is when she was with rufus when she released that single

Good God.

Artists shouldn't be listed by their first name. You don't look up Cindi Lauper by C, you find her under L.
Level ∞
Dec 21, 2013
That approach leads to problems. For example, where does Beyonce go?

Well, I guess that actually does explain it.
Level ∞
Feb 19, 2020
No it doesn't explain it at all. It could go under K for Knowles. Then you get people like Post Malone. Does it go under P or M. Is Post Malone even a name?
Level 63
Feb 25, 2020
Post is actually his last name. Going by the artists stage name is the best apporach imo: Beyoncé without her last name so it belongs under B, Cyndi Lauper in full, not just Cyndi or just Lauper so it belongs under C.

Not as many problems as your preferred alternative.
Level 77

Just go into a music shop and look up how artists are sorted there.
Level 67
Nov 8, 2021
Yeah, I run a music shop and it's almost all alphabetical by last names. There's a few exceptions, but far too few to change the entire way names are listed everywhere. Just such a stupid way of doing it.
Level 84

Great quiz, I think it's fine to use first or last names or band names. I hate Coldplay, though.
Level 77
Oct 15, 2014
Tried to guess "Cranberries" ended up with Chuck Berry. Thank you.
Level 66
Oct 16, 2015
Yo Chuck, it's your cousin Marvin...Marvin Berry. You know that new sound you've been looking for? Well listen to this!

Facepalm! How could I not remember his name!

Level 82

No Chubby Checker?
Level 58
Oct 22, 2015
I was thinking Boy George, Boy George... Which group was he in again? Couldn't find it. I'm getting old.
Level 93
Sep 23, 2021
better than me, i was thinking George Michael? No he was in Wham! someone else must have done it first... ::facepalm::
Level 67

Need to add Chicago, Carrie Underwood and The Cure. Thank you for not including Chris Brown.
Level 63

I saw Close to You and thought Close to Me
Level 67

Other possible future additions/answers for a Pt. 2: Chubby Checker, Cardi B, The Chainsmokers, Cake, Charli XCX, Counting Crows, and maybe Cypress Hill and Calvin Harris
Level 83
Feb 20, 2020
I know he wasn't as big in the US, but Cliff Richard would be a solid addition here.
Level 91
Mar 4, 2020
Definitely need Chicago. There was no bigger band between the Woodstock and disco era. Guess the same person who compiled the list also is on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame selection committee.
Level 77
May 14, 2020
In trying to put Commodores, I put Communards instead and wondered why that didn't work. But yeah, those, the Cranberries and Cliff Richard are all good shouts that could be added.
Level 61
May 14, 2020
Just realized I'm old. Got them all from Coolio to Chuck Berry but none of the first six.
Level 46
May 15, 2020
Maybe a teensy bit of grace spelling Christina’s last name? I went through several variations (I was sure there was a double letter pairing in there!) but had to resort to looking up the spelling.

Consider CSN for Crosby Stills and Nash?
