Name The Tune...
I finally got my act sorted out, well sort of anyway and am ready to launch this quiz.

On one of my trips across the pond I bought a cd called "Spot The Intro" where they have 495 song clips, not necessarily intros though, split into lots of 5 and I thought it would be a fun game to play.

I'll upload a segment and you have to identify the 5 titles played, if you're really keen you can id the artist, the year and the composers too, and if you're keener than that you can try id the publisher too Wink

But I am happy to accept the titles only Big Grin

So let's start with the first 5 tunes:

The next lot is a bit more modern, but only a bit.... But don't worry, by the look of things the newest is from 2003, it seems as if they group them by decades.

Here's the next 5

3)Horse with no name
5)Sung by Status Quo but can't remember name of song
