+
+Well, since
+<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/nunfetishist">Livejournal:nunfetishist</a>’s
+music quiz seemed to prove popular, I thought I’d finish one I started a
+while ago when
+<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/gerald_duck">Livejournal:gerald\_duck</a>
+was doing them.
+
+<blockquote>
+<em>Cut &mdash; The details</em><br /> Mine is designed to test more
+than just your knowledge of music though. There are bonus points
+available for some trivia based on the quiz contents… After much thought
+I chose these ten tracks for distinctive intros. I guess for some of you
+they’ll be easy and for others it’ll be really quite hard. It’s a
+reasonable cross-section of my musical tastes. Points will be awarded as
+follows:
+
+<ul>
+<li>
+One point for each correctly named track
+
+</li>
+<li>
+One point for each correctly named artist or group
+
+</li>
+<li>
+One point for naming the year that track three is from
+
+</li>
+<li>
+For tracks four, nine and ten:<br>One point for naming the film they’re
+part of.
+
+</li>
+<li>
+For track nine:<br>One point for working out the tenuous link between a
+recently topical recreational drug and the track.
+
+</li>
+</ul>
+That’s a total of 20 points for the tracks and five bonus points
+available for the extra bits. You can find the quiz
+<a href="http://www.digital-scurf.org/terryfish-introquiz-1.zip">here</a>
+and it contains a README.txt file detailing the scoring above. I will
+update this post with results as they come in. Please mail them to
+<a href="mailto:terryquiz@digital-scurf.org">`terryquiz@digital-scurf.org`</a>.
