Original, could 'see it' but couldn't assign any names or titles to it other than 'spaghetti arms'
Annoying as I really liked that film and the music in it.

Similarly with the sixties one.

Seventies, not a clue.

Eighties, vague recognition of the tune but not an inkling of the title or musician.
Only 'disco still I remember is
Spoiler: show
Yes, I do have the LP (cringe) much to my wife's disdain.

Failed 60s and 70s, knew the songs just not title or artist, 80s easy, 90s easy, 2000s even easier

Not a hope for todays, 70's sounds like a steam engine!, 80s sounds like a needle stuck on a vinyl, but salvation in 60s. Got it 2nd note:

Original - nope, never listened to her although she looks good on the album cover. Don't care for her voice.

Sixties
Yep, 2" :)

Seventies. Not a chance. Only listened to odd songs from them and not this one.

Eighties. Another miss, haven't a clue.Only know their 'one hit'.

A rare showing for me -
2" on the 60s
2" on the 70s
2" on the 80s

Don't think I'll be repeating that any time soon :lol:

Tuesday's Original Heardle
1999 Fail....has to have sampled Craig David, knew tune and artist couldn't put a name to the track without a bit of singing.

60's heardle, https://www.60s.heardledecades.com/
2 seconds... :-D

70's heardle, https://www.70s.heardledecades.com/
Fail, last ditch guess of Emerson Lake and Palmer didn't work. Not familiar with the Tune. If it had been about European roads I might have stood a chance! :-D .

80's heardle https://heardle80s.com/
Fail, thought it was a theme to a TV show

Thursday's Original Heardle

Knew who it was in a second, selected the wrong track, but got it in 2. Clue have a look at Kincardineshire's Today's County in the Spotlight Part 2, and read the posts you will come across his namesake. viewtopic.php?p=719363#p719363

60's heardle, https://www.60s.heardledecades.com/
5 seconds to get one, possibly even 2, of your favourites Mick :?: Got it in 2! without waiting for the singing :-D

70's heardle, https://www.70s.heardledecades.com/
12 seconds and its given away.

80's heardle https://heardle80s.com/
This is where the guess list bar helps, knew from the first 2 seconds the back end of the song title just typed the word I was pretty certain of in (3 letters) and up popped the list of options with the correct one on the list even though I couldnt remember the exact title or could have named the group.

Original 4" a bit of a guess
60s 17" got there in the end
70s 2" a confident guess
80s 2" knew the record

Original: Null Poeng
Sixties: ten seconds. I have this, daughter bought the CD for me a year ago when I mentioned that it was being played in Morrisons. Better than the 'original'. I like that he sold it to her for thirty quid.
Seventies: No chance
Eighties: Twelve seconds. Seemed to be silence for the first eight seconds. Best version of this song, mainly for the lead singer :)

Friday's Original Heardle
Fail. No, rap, hip hop or whatever went seriously downhill after Wham Rap!

60's heardle, https://www.60s.heardledecades.com/
12 Seconds, needed the singing, great song in my view, and some of the subsequent covers classics too.

70's heardle, https://www.70s.heardledecades.com/
12 Seconds....Kojak nailed it subsequently of course

80's heardle https://heardle80s.com/
Fail. No heardle you have gone too obscure for me there, although looking at their discography nearly made the UK top 10.
