MLMM Music Challenge 2-18-2022

I know that I had promised there would be an English pub quiz today (subject music), but it appears that Glyn had something come up and missed the deadline.  It’s all good!  Maybe he’ll be available next time.  

I will do this quiz theme every other MLMM Music Challenge post that I host.  The following day I’ll post the answers on my own blog (Sparksfromacombustiblemind).  I welcome ideas about what readers would like from this challenge.

The challenge today is to answer 10 questions about music (rock genre).  It’s easy and I think fun as it provides some trivia for knowledge.  The whole point of this MM Music challenge is to have fun and everyone is welcome to participate.   There are a variety of challenges here every day of the week, so there’s a little something for everyone’s taste!  Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie brings you a dose of fetish, good friends and an incomparable muse! 

You can either create a ping back to this post, or place your link in the comments section below.

Ready, steady, quiz!    No Google peeking please!  😉

    • Feathers. You have a vast knowledge of music Jim, and I bet if you thought about it, you could answer all of them easily! 🙂 Of course there’s no pressure or requirement to do so. 🙂 Thanks for commenting. There were a fair amount of crickets around this post today! O_o

      • Ooops. I amended my Sparks post, but not this one…I’ll fix that immediately. Thanks Jim! 🙂 I don’t know how to edit this post, so here’s what I wrote on Sparks: ” — I’m gonna amend that ‘rule’.  It appears the quiz is tougher than I anticipated, so Google away.  Feel free to write your own post and answer OR put the answers in the comments’ section.   Thanks! ” Please do Google. It is a fun quiz I thought..

  1. Okay, here’s me hoping for a pass, a least:
    Paul McCartney;
    Nine Inch Nails;
    Nope;
    Led Zepplin?;
    Nope;
    Three, but nope;
    Joni Mitchell (I’m Canadian);
    No idea;
    I think maybe 1977; and
    Is it “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac (‘caught in a landslide, no escape from reality’ and now I have an earworm 😊).

    That was fun: it reminds me that I miss music bingo at the pub 😉

    • Good job! And sorry I didn’t reply sooner, I’m still learning to switch the sites and do maintenance on both sides. Not very good at it (yet), but I wanted to thank you for participating! There’s a new (somewhat easier I think) quiz this Friday, so I hope you’ll come play! 🙂
