I recently watched a Beatles YouTube video where they played 15 short song snippets and you had to guess each song. They used five 2.0 second, five 1.0 second, and five 0.5 second clips, but I ended up with three 2.0 second, seven 1.5 second, three 1.0 second, and two 0.5 second clips. So, considerably easier, I think! The soundcloud track I'm posting here is only about 5 minutes long. You'll hear each snippet twice (5 seconds apart) and then you'll hear an extended version to reveal the answer. If you'd like to pause it after the first and/or second play to ponder the answer for a few moments, feel free to do so, but then you gotta guess! I think it'll be too easy if you take your time and listen to it over and over. I didn't try to be tricky. I selected memorable/distinctive moments. I picked songs from the studio albums. I balanced out the hits and non-hits, and spanned the decades.

I encourage everyone to share their score (e.g. "10/15" if you got 10 right) but be careful not to reveal the answers. (At least not until such a time that everyone who's interested has had a chance to play.)

Get out your headphones and have at it!

An embarrassing 9/15 Shocked

Thanks so much for putting that together - that was a fun game to play! Some of those deeper cuts I just couldnít get - even after hearing the 5 second samples! Guess I need to listen to these guys more often.

Hey, rab, thanks for playing. I had fun putting it together. I've posted it on two other forums and most fans are scoring between 8-12 so no need to be embarrassed!  Smiley It's tough with the Beach Boys because their catalog is huge. Either our brains can't quite sift through the hundreds of songs we're familiar with in time or the snippet happens to be one of the few tracks we aren't too familiar with. When I played the Beatles version, I think I actually got the easiest ones wrong! Boy, was I kicking myself. But, that's the fun of it, really.

I got 10/15, though in two of the missed ones I at least had the right album.

Like TimeToGetAlone I had guessed the album correctly on a couple of them, but narrowing those sounds down to a song is hard with some of those! I hope more people play, itís a great/fun concept.

Hey, slightly different format this time. Just 3 clips (one 2 second, one 1 second, one .5 second), played 3 times each. After listening post your answers in code by abbreviating the album and song titles. So, if you think the answers are "Let Us Go On This Way", "Farmer's Daughter", and "Where I Belong" post something like "1. lylugotw 2. susafd 3. tbbwib". Not much of a code but it's quick and I think it might be enough not to spoil the game.

I'll post the answer clips on Wednesday evening. If there's enough interest, I was thinking of maintaining a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule for a few weeks.

Have at it! (If these are too easy, trust me, I can make it a LOT harder!)

I'm a little embarrassed by my score in the first game (the only one I've done so far) - 7/15.
