    4/10 as well - though 1 of those 4 I only got by going "hmmm, inadvisably large collars, inadvisably large hair... looks early 90s to me" and picking the contemporary song from the options.

    So three I knew, a couple I'm surprised I got wrong, and I'm disappointed Chesney Hawkes was nowhere to be seen.

    I got 6/10, should I be worried that I knew that many?

    I got 6, too.

    I think 'Ring my Bell' was the only one I was absolutely sure about. I guessed most of them and I can honestly say I'd never heard, or heard of, 8 out of the 10.

    Does that say something about me or about the state of contemporary music?

    Answers on a postcard, please.

    I got 4, and looking at the ones I missed, they would have been guesses!
