7 of 10. I though this was supposed to be about "Dad songs"... where are the Frank Zappa and Grateful Dead songs/questions? Real dads didn't listen to Earth, Wind & Fire, and most didn't listen to Billy Joel, either, although we eventually learned that Billy Joel was a pretty cool guy, 'cuz he's bigtime into motorcycles.

"You got 5 out of 10. Tough luck, kiddo!"

Oh yeah? Well do you guys know the lyrics to Bonanza? Then were summoned by Tim Meadows
from the audience to sing it at Second City in Chicago while the comics then improvised
new lyrics to it? So who needs Styx?

You got 10 out of 10 - Way to go, sport! Educated guess on #2 (never a big Steely Dan fan) and guessed correctly.

10 for 10. Certainly not my dad's songs. Some aren't even my songs!

That’s kind of what I was thinking, about my dad’s songs. Where was Willie Nelson? Freddie Fender? Marty Robbins? 😆

You got 7 out of 10. The 3 I got wrong were songs I've never heard or even heard of. I never listen to EWF. I just hate horns.

Same-my dad liked Jazz and swing. I listened to many of these bands in my youth so I have no excuses I got 6/10. But it has been a long time.

The author of this article was right. The songs that were used for the questions really are "Bad Music"!
