We had so much fun with String Fever's History of Music that I've recreated it in the form of a quiz. It's quite challenging because it includes such a wide range of music from early and classical through jazz to rock and pop, but all well known tracks... until you try to name them.

So, this poll will take you exactly five minutes and 34 seconds. You can use either the audio version or the video version. The questions are time offsets, accurate for both. I think at least two of the segments are just infill/improv. The poll answers are public, but no peeking until you give up! Kudos for composers as well.

Bootnote: The Englishness suddenly clicked with me when I saw him put his pint glass upside down on his head (see other videos). As far as I know, that's a local/national tradition. I was once shown the American and Scandinavian equivalents and assured that both would get me thrown out of any respectable venue. We were in a respectable venue at the time. Perhaps, like the DMCA, we were granted an exception for educational purposes.
