The problem with a near-wheelhouse quiz of this type is figuring out how others will respond. I vacillated between “countrypolitan”, “Rickenbacker”, “Murray the K”, and “Alan Freed” on question 8, and picked the worst score of the four. Then I misread the instructions for 9 by saying “Dee Snider” (my spelling is correct; “i” not “y”). Argh...

And go ask an actual ‘60s SoCal surfer, and you’ll likely hear that the Beach Boys were not considered surf rock - that was Dick Dale, the Chantays, the Ventures, the Surfaris, etc. I don’t care about Wikipedia’s breakdown of “instrumental” and “vocal” surf rock. 8-)
what are you whining about? you got a 3
I don't think that was complaining, just expressing frustration in basically out-thinking themselves.
btw...you are up late...after 530am...didn't think people that frequented this board stayed up this late

12. 2010s: RECENT POP MUSIC TORTURE PART III

I love driving you folks crazy with recent annoyingnoisesImeanmusic. Luckily for you, no lyrics this time. Answer a question about recent music headlines.

[*] Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” features some lyrics from this super-fan whose team just won the NBA championship Drake
[*] These former Disney Channel heartthrobs returned to the charts in a big way in 2019 with hits such as “Cool” and “Sucker” Jonas Brothers
[*] It has been a huge year for this former Nickelodeon actress, becoming the first solo artist to hold the top three spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 Ariana Grande
[*] This rapper erupted onto the music scene and irked country music fans with “Old Town Road”, the nation’s #1 song for most of the past five months Lil Nas X
[*] Though the two deny it, fans still seem to think that Shawn Mendes is dating this “Senorita” he dueted with on their current hit Camila Cabelo
[*] This singer’s “Truth Hurts” reached the Billboard top five two years after its initial release Lizzo
[*] This emo-looking singer has burst onto the pop music scene this year with hits “bad guy” and “when the party’s over” Billie Eilish
[*] Taylor Swift’s current Top 20 song is titled “You Need To” do this "Calm Down"
[*] This band headlined the Super Bowl LIII halftime show Maroon 5
[*] We’re “Speechless” about the success of this country pair with two crossover top 40 singles in the past 12 months Dan and Shay

FOURTH QUARTER/FINAL BONUS: Here are a few questions I constructed that did not make the cut. Answer as many as you’re able - one point reduction for each correct response for a max of -6.

[*] Roberta Flack won back-to-back Record of the Year Grammys in the mid-1970s with these two titles (one point for one title, two for both) The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Killing Me Softly With His Song
[*] Fleetwood Mac enlisted the help of this school’s marching band on their 1979 smash “Tusk" University of Southern California (USC)
[*] “Memory” is a song from this Broadway show Cats
[*] What thrash metal band was recently dropped from a sponsorship deal for NASCAR driver J.J. Yeley and Rick Ware Racing? Slayer
[*] Red Rocks is located in this Colorado town, just west of Denver Morrison


Here's the breakdown, in alphabetical order.

NOTE: I elected to accept just "Killing Me Softly". It's not the full title and almost definitely breaks my own rules, but I feel that the song has enough references with just the shortened title, so I'll let it slide - last thing I want is two dozen angry players. The rules are going to get revised next time, and it does not drastically affect final standings, so please don't shoot/throw tomatoes at my head. My fault for making you name songs with a thousand words in the title! :oops: :lol:

TD 429 CHAMPION!
1. badgerfellow - 41

In a stunning twist of events, some of our Quarter 3 leaders flame out with costly sheep and/or incorrect responses, leaving badgerfellow at the top of the pile! Congrats! He garnered just two points in total through today’s reveal, using a drop and knocking three points off his score through the bonuses. The top five looks quite different than it did yesterday, with casketromance rocketing up to a second place finish, and RandyG completing the podium.


FINAL THOUGHTS/CONCLUSION:

I’m glad that the current/Top 40 music went better than my last two TDs - only two drops and two incorrect responses!

Unlike the Millennial Medley quizzes, do not hold your breath on a Part II of “All Music”. I’m well aware this was not my best TD for a variety of reasons, and I apologize for any angst/head-slapping :lol:. I do my best to provide a challenge, but I host sporadically enough that sometimes I forget what a challenging but fair quiz might look like (I'm not a genius either). On the positive side, I’ll be giving myself a nice, long look at the TD best practices thread for a refresher/future reference. :D

Nevertheless, I still appreciate the strong entry list and the many, many kind words from all of you :). I look forward to hosting again at some point in the future. Time to shift focus to the College Online Test! Take care everyone.

I conflated Los Del Rio and Taco Del Mar. Would love to open up a Macarena themed Taco shop though.
Brilliant. I am not much of a taco guy, but I will absolutely go to this.

Should’ve sheeped for everything.

The los del rio thing was a typo, so I just have to lol at that.
Clearly a simple typo. I think it should be accepted.
I too know it was just a typo... but I made note in the opening post that J! conventions are followed for spelling/leading articles (mostly to try and make my life easier). That rule helped out a lot for sorting through the Paulina Porizkova responses, but also sets a precedent - Lol and Los are different words, and I (unfortunately) cannot accept that.

This has worked without much of an issue in my past two TDs, but this is something that I will absolutely need to scrap in the future. Live and learn I guess.
The issue I’ve had is when completing a TD through Google firms on my phone. It is sometimes very difficult to notice when my phone has autocorrected an answer in a previous field, and I have gotten a couple wrong as a result. I’m assuming that could have easily happened with Los->Lol.

It also happened with me a few questions later, with Matchbox 20 somehow autocorrecting to Jewel. Oh wait

There's always room for Jello.

I think he should get a demerit for breaking the unwritten 'thou shalt not wear one's own band t-shirt' rule.
I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't recognize him.

Thanks for putting together a fun TD, threearuda!
