Intros Quiz – Drum edition 1

October 6th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

We take a break from our five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes (next up will be the Year of Our Lord 1986), and get percussive with 20 songs that start with drums, from the 1960s to the 1990s. Some of them start with just a couple of beats or a drum roll, others bang the drum for a bit before the song gets started. Only one of the 5-7 second clips features no instruments or a vocal clue, but that one is instantly recognisable.

The answers will be posted in the comments section by Monday (so please don’t post your answers). If the pesky number 17 bugs you, go to the Contact Me tab above to request the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you’re not my FB friend, click here.

    Hi – great site which I visit regularly to bet my Song Swarm, Mixes and, sadly, In Memoriam fixes.

    Good intros this time, would like to say I got ‘am all but tripped up on 17 (I’m ashamed because the Stairsteps track is a fave of mine!) which I thought was Barry Biggs “Sideshow” and 18 which I mistook for Bowie’s “Modern Love”.

    All the best, Pete
