95% got Lady GaGa and only 39% got Black Sabbath? I don't wanna live on this planet anymore!

The clue was a little tough - if it had been "The irrational belief that everyone is out to get you" I'm sure its score would be higher... similarly if the Lady Gaga clue were "Ron Galella,"

I've never even heard of the Lady Gaga song before, but I still got it right...
Level 78
Jan 14, 2016
Agreed. I'm a big Black Sabbath fan, so I obviously had no problem with that one... I've never heard of the Lady Gaga song, but I was able to guess it just based on the clue.

Never listened to Black Sabbath or Gaga. Both crap music to me. But Gaga's right cause the clue was easy

yea and it has nothing to with the fact that one song is 50 years old and the other is 10 years old..

You sound paranoid.

Jul 24, 2013
Good descriptions. I only new about 2/3, but I was able to get all but one based on the clues.
Level 75
Jan 11, 2016
Same here. I'd only heard six of the songs, but got all but Morissette's song from the clues. How ironic.

That tripped me up, too, though I was just guessing randomly.

I put paranoia instead of paranoid :/
Level 79

It says 'Showing severe and irrational distrust and suspicion', which means it's looking for an adjective, not a noun.

A landslide is a form of erosion, not a result of erosion.

Yea, in elementary terms; stuff slides down because there is no grip anymore. (Due to erosion)

Actually it could be both.

regarding Stevie Wonder clue: he also sang "Faith" which IMHO fits with the definition (although being probably less "canon" for SW). Can you accept it as a solution?
Level 82
Jun 11, 2022
To be honest, I barely looked at the artists. The clues give you all the info you need.
