Music Trivia Games For Every Music Lover

Updated on January 7, 2015

How is your Music knowledge?

I am a huge fan of music trivia games. Tons of useless - but interesting musical facts seem to stick in my head. These games are great to play with your friends because while people can be embarrassed that they don't know the capital of Germany for example, not knowing a particular tidbit of music history is just not embarrassing at all.

How are you at music trivia?

Do you know Elton John's real name?

Who was the first lead singer of Genesis?

What song was #1 for the longest in 1983?

Which of the Abba girls was blonde?

What was the name of Madonna's first band?

If these questions make you want to jump up and say Reginald Dwight, Peter Gabriel,The Police, Every Breath You Take, Agnetha and The Breakfast Club then you are as obsessed as me.

So here are favorite games to tame your addiction! And added for your enjoyment are 10 quiz questions to test your skills.
