Pop quiz – intros

March 11, 2009

Behold! A pop quiz. Below is a video. Play it. See how many of the 25 songs you can identify. Some are old. Some are fairly new. Some are known around the world. Others are probably only known in Britain.

See how many you can get.

Jot down the answers and leave them here. What is the prize? Well, there is no prize, aside from me announcing that you’re the winner at some point when I decide the competition is closed. It could be a week, or it could be a month. It probably won’t be a year.

Just think of the glory and the fame.
