11 out of 12. I got number 5 wrong, mainly because I don't think I ever heard it.

I guessed that one also. You would recognize it if you heard it though.

9/12; I had to guess on several of these because I had never heard of them. I was born in the 1960's and did not listen to music till the mid 70's with friends. My parents had only an AM radio back then.
