Okay, so my sister has asked me to organise a music quiz as a party game this crimbo based on the contents of my infamous iTunes library.

I thought I'd search the net to see if there's a piece of software to help me do this.

Haven't (yet) found what I'm looking for but did find this quiz which I thought would make a good blog entry. Feel free to try the quiz yourself and post your results as a comment

    WHen we are sometimes sat in front of the tv, my wife and I will sometimes play 'GUess the tune' with the Top 100 tracks in iTUnes. I play 10 seconds and she gets one point for the artist and one for the name of the song.

    Mundane fun LOLOLOL.

    Thanks Gareth,

    We've done that in previous years, but I was looking for something to automate the process. Couldn't find anything. Thinking of coding something up in Applescript to automate the process - but then I think, what about a fontend/GUI and the whole project takes a huge step forward in complexity!
