Oops! You Got Low Scores
Okay, so you didn’t get many right this time, but not to worry. Sure, you aren’t exactly an expert in who sang what and what they were singing about. But at the end of the day this doesn’t matter all that much. So long as you can look back on the past with a cheerful attitude. Better luck next time!
You Achieved Good Scores!
Good going. You did really well, and sure proved that you know your stuff when it comes to the great pop and rock and roll hits of yesteryear. There’s not much about the history of good music that you don’t remember as if it all happened yesterday. Well done!
