Hello and welcome to oldies lovers world-wide.

This quiz is in the audio snippet format.

I confess.  I got lazy (actually, always have been).  To construct
this months quiz I took the GOLQ "used" list (found at and
plugged it into a spreadsheet.  From there I had the software assign
a random number for each song, sorted them from highest to lowest
random number and took the top 25 eligible songs.
I had to eliminate a few for re-use rule restrictions,
but I was surprised about how the distribution came out.

The tie breakers were not chosen using these criteria. Just flights
of fancy on my part.

What this means is, for the first in a long time, there is no theme.
But some solace can be taken in that there are no songs that have
not appeared in a previous quiz.  And of course, the snippets are strong
clues in and of themselves.  I have little doubt that the majority of
them will be readily recognizable.

You may download either the individual mp3 files or an 8.4 MB ZIP file
containing all 27 sound clips at:

Have fun everyone.
