Result
Well...these songs kind of fell by the wayside as far as radio play after their heyday went, so if you're not a huge music person we can't blame you too much for this score. Don't beat yourself up!

While some of these may have tripped you up (we'll say it was the REALLY obscure ones), you still performed quite admirably! Don't beat yourself up too much over the few you missed - we're sure you'll get them next time!

Wow! While some of these were middling as far as being recognizable goes, some were outright obscure, but you nailed almost all of them with no hesitation. Great work on this one! You're a true 1970's music fan!
