About This Quiz

This quiz will take you down memory lane to when you were a youth, going to school, learning to drive, having your first kiss ... you get the idea. You'll need to recall what was playing on the radio when you hit some of these milestones. Was it "Coal Miner's Daughter" by Loretta Lynn?  “Hurt” by Johnny Cash?  Or maybe Taylor Swift hadn't crossed over to pop yet, and was singing "Tears On My Guitar". 

What's great about mulling over the songs we've listed as possible answers is that you're guaranteed to expand your playlist. The answers will remind you of songs you haven't listened to in awhile and introduce you to top songs you may want to hear. Once you have answered all the questions to the best of your recollection, we will match your answers to the popular songs of the times and then calculate your age within 5 years. For some, this will be a hard task. Especially when many of the songs listed may be your current favorites (and you would rather choose those songs over the ones you listened to in your youth!) Either way, it "Sure Be Cool if You Did" (Blake Shelton) take this quiz. Do it now!
