30 Second Music Quiz!

There's no straightforward way of playing music on this blog.

But you can play videos, and windows does come with a built in movie maker.

So...

Take 30 songs, and record exactly one thousand miliseconds from each one. (I used Creative Wave Studio, a basic sound recording program that came with my soundcard.) Then stick them all together to make a chaotic 30 second sound collage, and put this, along with a simple static picture into the movie maker and voila! You have a quiz!

These are all culled from my itunes. No artist features more than once.

Go on then, I'll have a stab.

I'm not sure if each 1000 millisecond chunk is contiguous. I suspect not but if so, no. 21 is The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man" and no.5 might be The Stranglers' "Strange Little Girl". There's also some BB in there but I haven't worked it out yet.

Correct on both counts, Peter.

And yes, there is a Billy Bragg fragment in there somewhere.

Pete said...

And there's more,

No. 9 is Billy Bragg and "Levi Stubb's Tears" whilst no. 17 is possibly Portishead with "Glory Box"

Pete said...

No.14 is XTC's "senses working overtime" methinks

Paul said...

Blimey! Abslutely right once again!

A couple of hundred brownie points are winging their way over to Thailand as you read this!

Will you be dishing out the answers at any point? I think I've reached my limit. There may be some Floyd towards the end.

Paul said...

You've done better than seven billion other people. Yes I will post all the answers eventually. Presumably, you'll have read the post above by now. I wonder if that will yield any more answers to you?
