Maybe my favorite Simpsons moment ever involves two of these answers: Mr. Burns arrives at the Simpsons' house in a tank with full military support. Before the siege, he puts on a tape with Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries," which plays for about two seconds before he realizes someone taped over it with "Waterloo." Seamless comic irony.

You were right, Wings suck.

Mostly terrible apart from the worse than terrible Mull of Kintyre.

I would have had no idea about the Spice Girls song except the previous quiz had a question about who sang Wannabe. That seems to be happening a lot on these quizzes lately - but I'm not complaining.

This may be because often, some of the featured quizzes have a commonality, which means you come across the same answers several times - e.g. 'Letter A history', and 'Letter A history in pictures'.

Thanks Kiwi. I have completed this series now, and I have to say I really enjoyed the diversity of questions. It seems that my knowledge of modern boy / girl bands is the area where I need most work. Classical music (at the level you have pitched it) is good for me, as are the questions on theory and instruments.

I have to admit I was expecting more of Dame Kiri, OMC, Neil Finn, Flight of the Conchords, but I loved it all the same. Great idea for a series and a great series, cheers dude.
