65% similar. I'm amazed I did that well. It was all guesswork, some intuition. There wasn't one right answer that I knew for sure.

71% similar. I just picked one of three or one of two on each one. I listened to most of these songs so much it was hard to choose. I love the 80’s music! 60’s, 70’s and 80’s had the best music ever

Many times I had yo pick the lesser of the three choices like The Police, Toto and Billy Joel. Cum On Feel The Noize was actually a cover iof a song originally written and recorded by Slade.
