212 Name That Tune: The 70s (Junior Varsity) Edition

This edition of BBHQ's Name that Tune is especially for the younger boomers; it includes only well-known songs from the 70s.

The current Junior Varsity Champ is Hope . with 73 points.

Since you are not a member here at BBHQ, we can show you only a couple of the questions. Once you become a member, you will have access to all of the trivia quizzes at BBHQ.

This quiz consists of 30 questions, worth a maximum of 3 points each. So, you're shooting for a score of 90 points.

You can take this quiz one question at a time; answer as many as you like. When you are done, click the "How'd I Do?" button near the bottom to summarize your score and compare your score to others.

The artists in this quiz may include the following:

... or not.

Here's How it Works:

The text clue gives you a hint about the artist or the song title. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to play a small part of a song. You have three options; you can name that tune in perhaps 1, 3, or 5 notes (or chords or beats).

Enter the song title (not the artist), then click the "Grade Me" button. We'll grade your answer and tell you how you did at the bottom of the screen. And we'll mark your score next to your answer.

If you get it right, you'll get 3, 2 or 1 points, depending on how risky you are.

But, if you are wrong, we'll take one point away from your score. If you miss, you can try again. But if you miss again, you'll lose another point. (This is the JV edition; but it ain't for sissies!)

After you have given it your best, you can listen to a larger sample of the song so that you can say, "Oh, yeah; of course." And if you have no clue, you can ask for the answer. But once you do either of those, you cannot answer the question; you're done.

Of course, you'll need speakers on your computer to participate. Spelling is important here; but capitalization is not. Our grading program looks for specific key words in your answer. Type carefully!
