If you have access to a music system where you are presenting your quiz, why not throw in a music round?
Simply cue up ten or more songs on an ipod device, CD or on a laptop and play the first few seconds of
each song a few times. Teams then must guess the name of the song for a point and the name of the artist
for a further point.

Getting hold of suitable music is a quick and simple task, just download samples in MP3 format, copy them
over to your media device and practice, practice, practice. There's nothing quite like the look of
confusion on the faces of quiz players as you play out your music samples.

You'll find over 12 Million great songs ready to download and cue up for a music quiz at this site below.
Instantly fill your ipod or computer or burn your music to CD.

Downloading the samples is free and best of all, it's all legal.
