Title: Pop Master
Post by: clarion on 30 August, 2012, 10:52:31 am
Since the desire has been expressed that this be in a new thread, I'll start off with today's:

18/36/1

Which is odd, as the contestant rather impressively got 36 on the first round, in the face of some really obscure questions.

I was on my bike on Friday, rushing to catch a train, but I'm back today:

Actually 5, but Hall & Oates had a lot of hits.  And was it just me, or were the bonuses mostly remarkably easy today?

I like Manfred Mann, but not so much Janet Jackson.

Today is significant in that I actually got the right year in the first round, breaking a long run of One Year Out.  Don't worry, though, I was OYO again in the second round :-[

And both years correct! :o

But were they the worst pair of contestants ever?  Had either of them ever heard any popular music?  9 points each and one of the longest tie-breakers in history.

Though I have to confess I didn't know which album those George Michael singles came from.

I got one of the years correct, but only because of the Bowie/Jagger Dancing in the Street, which was an obvious help. And of course I knew the George Michael question.  ;D

I hadn't ever twigged before that Michael Jackson did the backing vocals on that Rockwell single but now I know, it's so obvious I can't believe I never noticed before.

Title: Re: Pop Master
Post by: teethgrinder on 27 September, 2012, 08:11:27 am
I'm out of touch with most stuff after 1990. I often know the tunes, but never pay much attention to the artists or song titles. I know older stuff that my dad listened to on vinly and like myself. I know stuff where I've bought CDs. But the rest of it is just stuff that is played on the radio at work, so unless it's something that grabs me, which is pretty rare, then it's just OK or 'orrible.

Was the second bloke today googling, or getting other outside assistance?  Long pauses and grabbing the answers out of thin air?  Or am I just a suspicous git?  Ken didn't let him have one of the answers as he was a gnat's crotchet out of time.

Title: Re: Pop Master
Post by: clarion on 23 October, 2012, 12:56:53 pm
I'd definitely agree the first round was much harder than the second.  Identifying Squeeze for six points as opposed to identifying Michael Cox (which the contestant, rather impressively, managed as his second guess) is hardly fair.

I actually got four in ten.  I'm amazed that he didn't get her biggest (and twice) hit.

The first round felt tough (although I docked myself three points for the same answer the contestant gave - Too Many as opposed to 2 - which Ken maybe misheard and gave.  It would have been a tiebreak if he'd spotted that, I think).

I missed three consecutive questions - potential 12pts - on the second round.

I agree.  I got five in the ten seconds, and could have had loads more.  Odd that a band I don't particularly like made such a mark.  Mind you, I do wonder what makes a one hit wonder stick in the brain, when a band which had a number of hits have disappeared completely from memory.

TG, I think you are excused Champions League. ;D 

This is getting seriously hard, and it demands a lot more concentration than I can perhaps give it.  Today's contestants got 44 & 48 respectively in this round (scoring is too complex to explain unless you really want me to go into it).  I got 11 & 22.  They've been impressive all week, but today's two have shot to the top of the leader board.  Astonishing knowledge.

I've had this for the last couple of weeks.

This weeks contestants are proof that anyone can win on the day, but getting 33+ means you know your stuff.

I got some of them right!

A lot of them are pretty tricky ones though. One of the ones I got was that it was Bruce Dickinson who sang Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes," which you'd probably only know if you have the album. That's pretty specialist IMO. But I got it straight away. :smug:

Second tiebreaker on six points in the last few weeks :facepalm:

And that 3 in 10?  We actually got six!

Not me, if that's what you were wondering.

I don't actually know what Pop Master is - I'm not going to go back through 10 pages to find out, and it's only really my sort-of-OCD about unread threads that's made me click here in the first place, in a futile endeavour to get rid of the New! flash.

I love the 'Mark Read' button for exactly that purpose.  ;D

Worked out it wasn't you, but I did wonder.

Pop Master is a popular music quiz on Ken Bruce's show on Radio 2, and airs about 1030 weekdays.

I had a spectacular result last week when I was ill.  I heard everything up to the first question, dropped off to sleep, woke to hear Ken say there was another challenger coming up after the next record, which I heard, along with the chat to the second contestant, after which I fell asleep again, waking up at the endof 3 in 10.  So, technically, a 0/0/0!

Thank you.  Heard it today.  Couldn't quite work out the scoring system - is it 3 for a normal question and 6 for the bonus ones? - but I got all but one of the woman's questions and all but three of the bloke's.  I can see how you could get addicted....

2) Besides Temptation, name any of the 1980s UK chart hits for Heaven 17
I didn't get either right and didn't get through.  Just as well, because I got 18/24/1 and got a thorough drubbing by both contestants...

Wow, impressive, EG.  I was completely stumped by the second lot of questions (I guessed the wrong Spandau Ballet song on the easy first question, and it didn't get much better than that... As for the Harry Webb bonuses, that was 18 points written off from the get-go; though I should have recognised ONJ's voice, I'd never heard the song before...)

Yesterday: 33/30/1
Today: 27/36/2

Mac and Katie Kissoon and Abi and Esther Ofarim are probably the two most obscure answers I've ever got; feeling quite proud of myself!

No, of course not. You only get 5 seconds per question anyway.

I listen every day in the shop. Sometimes people say I should have a go*. EG will confirm but I'm pretty sure you need to answer a set of questions off air before the contest proper. Occasionally you get someone like Carol, today, who gets caught like a rabbit in the headlights and ends up tongue tied and unable to think. You find yourself shouting the answers in the hope that she'll get some inspiration from somewhere . . .





*NAFC! I'm pretty sure it would be embarassingly difficult.

Yeah, I had to answer three questions when I phoned up, got them all right, then they phoned me back and asked two more, got one wrong, and then they picked me.

Yep, as EG says, you need to answer questions off-air first.  I've done it a couple of times but the chances of getting called back for the further two questions, then being selected, are pretty remote.

My point was that, even with some very helpful hints from Ken, she did really get nada.  Her questions were a little bit 80s-heavy, but there was nothing truly obscure in there, like there sometimes is.  The year was easy to get because of the Puppet On A String/Eurovision association.  How could she possibly have been singing the refrain Prince Charming to herself without knowing the name of the song?  She freely admitted beforehand that she normally scores low and this was the one thing she was right about!  I really cannot imagine her sailing through the preselection questions... can you?

Having said that, she was a great contestant, and took it all in good grace - I loved her quip about Couldn't Get It Right being played - THAT is why she got selected.  :thumbsup:

27/24/2 (should have got Far, Far Away, but my heart sank when he went for the Slade questions.)
The years were easy today cos I saw TOTP The Story of 1985 a couple of weeks ago.  Children was Massive in 1996 - the year before my GCSEs, so I can place it pretty well.
It's also surprising how often listening to Pick of the Pops helps with the year questions.  It does, however, mean that you have to put up with Gambo...

Champions League are Very Difficult. Or I'm being even less good at this than usual. 0,0 yesterday, 0,0 today. Consistent though.
