Well, we're done. If you cats want to try and figure out which of this week's releases fit which set of questions, you've got until I get home tonight to do so.

Why?

Well, I decided to use 20q.net to see if it could figure out the artists (artist and song is too much, I think, for that program), and it successfully guessed all three artists. So, for the fun of it, I intend to provide the questions it asked and the answers it got, at which point, of course, they will be revealed.

Alright, since nobody asked for it, here goes -- note that the first question is always "are you a music-related person, place, or thing", so I'm not counting it, and Q20 uses broader categories for things that can't really be yes/no or are uncertain.

Song #1
01. Are you more than one person? Yes.
02. Have you had a Top 40 hit in the last 10 years? Yes.*
03. Does your name consist of two words? No.
04. Did you impact music history? Probably.
05. Do you perform Ska music? No.
06. Have you been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Yes.
07. Are you Irish? No.
08. Are you part of Hard Rock music? Sometimes.
09. Are you featured in a movie? Yes.
10. Do you perform heavy metal? Sometimes.
11. Do you have long hair? Yes.
12. Do you use synthesizers or keyboards? Sometimes.
13. Is your music considered Classic Rock? Sometimes.
14. Does your name consist of one word? Yes.
15. I am guessing that it is Aerosmith? Yes.
* Not on the main chart, but on US Rock -- Jaded was 12 years ago, and well within 10y of when this thing would have started being fed information.

Song #2
01. Do you sing love songs? No.
02. Are you American? No.
03. Do you have long hair? No.
04. Are you British? No.
05. Are you Swedish? No. (clearly taking a page out of our playbook here)
06. Would you be found at an orchestra? No.
07. Did you tour in the last two years? Yes.
08. Are you a classic? Yes.
09. Are you a drummer? No.
10. Do you play electric guitar? No.
11. Were you popular in the '70s? No.
12. Do you play an instrument? Sometimes.
13. Do you have a powerful voice? No.
14. Are you popular with teenagers? Yes.
15. Are you a solo artist? Yes.
16. Are you a songwriter? Sometimes.
17. I guessed that it was DJ Tiesto? Close.
18. Does your name consist of two words? Yes.
19. I am guessing that it is Robert Miles? Yes.

Song #3
01. Do you play electric guitar? Sometimes. (not everyone in this group does)
02. Was your first album released before 1990? No.
03. Do you have black hair? No.
04. Do you play the piano? Sometimes.
05. Are you from Hawaii? No.
06. Are you European? No.
07. Do you perform Rock? Sometimes.
08. Do you have a keyboard? Probably.
09. Are you an all male band? No.
10. Do you have brown hair? Sometimes.
11. Are you married? Sometimes.
12. Are you critically acclaimed? Yes.
13. Are you over the age of 30? Yes.
14. Are you Canadian? Sometimes.
15. Are you American? Sometimes.
16. I am guessing that it is The Arcade Fire? Yes.

Good times.
