Name-That-Tune Day

Them's The Breaks

It's become a yearly tradition here at the URI! Zone to have at least one Name-That-Tune contest, with such oddball rules as "you can only hear the bass line" or "everything's from an 80s sitcom". For this year's contest, I've decided to make it a little more accessible to new players by extending the lengths of the snippets and weighting the scores for each one based on how difficult I think it is. The theme for this contest is "instrumental breaks": the parts of the song where the melody / chorus goes away and some clown solos for a few minutes to increase the running time of the song .

How well do you know your breaks?

  1. (15 seconds, worth 1 point)
  2. (14 seconds, worth 1 point)
  3. (13 seconds, worth 1 point)
  4. (18 seconds, worth 1 point)
  5. (17 seconds, worth 2 points)
  6. (13 seconds, worth 2 points)
  7. (13 seconds, worth 2 points)
  8. (14 seconds, worth 4 points)
  9. (20 seconds, worth 5 points)
  10. (24 seconds, worth 5 points)
  11. Fun Tiebreaker Bonus:
  12. (10 seconds, worth 1 point)

The Complete Rules:

  • Send me an email containing your guesses for each song title no later than February 27, 2008. The band/group/performer does not matter here but feel free to submit them if you want a pat on the head.
  • The entry with the most correct answers will win a $15 gift certificate to Amazon.com. The prize will be split during ties. You may also work with a partner and split the prize if your collective entry wins.
  • I will abuse dictatorial privileges if a situation arises that's not covered by the rules.
  • For the mathematicians in the audience, the highest score you can possibly get is 25 points. Good luck!
