When "Levine" is typed in, you get "Avril Lavigne"

Haha, I was so perplexed when I reached Avril's photo and somehow saw her name was already there. That explains it. But seriously, I find it a bit lame that people are so much trouble spelling that it would be necessary to accept type-ins such as that. It's not like it's a complicated foreign name Schwarzenegger.

I thought I typed Lavigne by mistake when guessing Levine so I looked back up when I saw the answer filled in to check if I made a mistake. Nope, I did not.

Wagner was a total curveball.

Why? I would argue that he wrote better music than all the rest of them (with the possible exception of Bob Dylan) and surely the original creator of the music deserves more kudos than the performer?

I agree it was a curve ball. It's not that he wasn't a great composer. It's just that it isn't a picture that you see every day (or ever). Even if you know the music you probably haven't seen his picture often enough to recognize him immediately. I know I certainly haven't . I would probably recognize Beethoven though - from the bust on Schroeder's piano. For the Sia picture, I did try Cousin Itt in drag.

I agree. I know Wagner's music pretty well, but I don't think I've ever seen a photo of him. I would recognize Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mozart...and that's probably it. I am familiar with the work of lots of other composers but I could never identify them by picture.

I've seen that picture thousands of time, but I wrote a doctoral dissertation on Nietzsche so I might be a bit of an outlier.

Interesting. I thought this photo of him was rather famous. He is easily recognizable anyway.

I agree that Wagner is a curveball. I got him not because I recognized the picture, but because I know these quizzes always have one pre-20th century composer and I just started randomly guessing the ones that hadn't been used yet. However, I will also agree with CardinalSin that Wagner wrote better music than anyone else in this quiz.

I expected Dylan to be at least 80% or so, and I feel better about missing Wagner after seeing such a low number of people get him right.

Years ago my phone rang and when I answered, a voice said, "Hello, ____, how are you? Do you know who this is?" I said, " I don't know, but it sounds like Garth Brooks." He laughed and said, "It is." My daughter had seen him play baseball in a spring training game, and afterwards had stood at the end of the autograph line. Instead of his autograph she asked if he would phone her mother and say hello. He agreed and called me on her phone. We chatted for a couple of minutes, and I learned he has a brother living in our region. He was super nice. Garth is all about his fans and I'm sorry more people didn't recognize him on this quiz.

This is an awesome story. Garth played minor-league baseball for my New York Mets! (Tim Tebow is currently in our minor league system too. Perhaps there is a trend...)

That must be a very touched up photo of Wagner. He died in the 1880s and the quality of the photo looks like it was taken in the 1920s if not later. Still got him but I my brain didn't want to make the final connection because it could figure out how he time traveled.
