The Centuries of Sound Pub Quiz Round

Beer_guy

I’ve been in a couple of pub quizzes over Zoom recently, and have put together a round of my own to share with friends & family. Now I’ve done it a couple of times, I thought I might as well share it for anyone to use. Feel free to adapt to suit, or just play it yourself and see how well you do.

Here are clips of ten tracks. For each track they should guess the year and the country. The years are from the following list, none are duplicates, but there is one extra.

1917
1928
1933
1941
1958
1968
1973
1981
1999
2009
2014

…and here are the countries. Again, none is a duplicate, but there is one extra.

Armenia
Brasil
Cuba
France
Japan
Romania
Slovakia
South Africa
UK
USA
West Germany

Here is the mp3 with each clip, or you can stream it below.

 

 

Each clip is worth 10 points – half a point for the correct year, half a point for the correct country.
