die Regeln auf deutsch
First of all: I apologize that I donīt provide a complete english version of this site, but itīs too much work. You can easily take part without knowing German: Just go to the "quiz" page, listen to the songs, fill out the form ("Titel" = title; "Interpret" = artist; "Spieler-/Teamname" = player/team name; "Email-Adresse" = email adress). Done. To learn what this quiz is about, read this first:
There ainīt NOTHING to be won here (except pride!). This quiz is for all of you who like music like I do and who want to participate "just for fun".
Each month Iīll be presenting eleven songs. The trouble is, that youīll only hear the first second (in average) of these songs. You can listen to them online (attention: older RealPlayers may not recognize the file format!) or download a ZIP-archive with all of them in the MP3-format. (If needed: programs are available via my link page.) The songs will be well-known hits that were in the charts at their time (except for no. 11, which may be quite unknown). Thereīll be at least 1 or 2 song beginnings that I would judge very hard..
Your part is to find the title and the artist to all of the song beginnings. When you think you have found out some or even all of them, then write a mail with the subject "music quiz", your player/team name, email-adress and all of your solutions until the end of the month. Please use the quiz form! You may send in solutions three times per month.
I`ll try (not promise!) to answer all mails and to tell you which solutions are right and which are not. With this feedback you have the opportunity to correct your guesses and send them in once again. I wonīt be able to be online every day, so maybe itīll take some time until you receive an answer to your mail.
The number of correct guesses (one point each for title and artist, i.e. maximum 20 points) will be listed in the ranking, which will be updated at the end of each quiz round.
Finally: All rights are reserved, especially the right to exclude someone from the ranking (e.g. when that someone breaks my rules).
Iīd appreciate comments and suggestions for this site ().
Code of honour: It is not in accordance with the spirit of Beat/Off to listen through your complete CD-/MP3-archives to find out the samples that you have no clue about. This is unfair to those that have only few CDs. Those who have a larger number of songs normally have a larger musical knowledge and therefore figure more songs out anyway. The way to the solution should be knowledge and not blind screening of song archives. Of course, it is also forbidden to call radio stations etc. and to ask them for the solution by humming the sample. I have nothing against searching in (online) data bases for titles when you already have the artist (or vice versa). Although I have no control about that: Please be fair!
