Agreed- it makes it really obvious. Can I also suggest that you rewrite the Right Said Fred clue to avoid the words "too sexy"? It's like a crossword cluing thing that you don't state the answer in the clue.

I disagree. Without the artist many of these would become too difficult. Some of these describe dozens if not hundreds of different songs so the artist helps narrow it down. Also, you'd be deviating from the formula in my quiz that inspired these. :P

I see your point, but I disagree. The stats suggest the quiz is already difficult enough. And more importantly, removing the artist creates ambiguity about what song is asked for, which will open the door for all sorts of whining.

At first I typed Tommy and wondered why it didn't work for The Who. I was finally able to blow the dust of the '60s file in my brain and find the correct answer.
