I bet we got pegged as square (square peg in round hole?) because we never heard of some of those people. I just chose anyone so I could get to the next question. Lots of us are unfairly being termed "square" when we are not. We should PROTEST!

Oh that's okay, I don't mind being called square for purposes of this poll. I did some protest marching in the sixties like anifani821 and I put a few flowers in my hair like jzeig104.

Maybe we are squares with round edges.

None of the choices really jumped out at me and I don't know half of the ones there, so I just randomly chose something. But I am a square.

That was a really stupid quiz. No offense to OP.
And it wasn't even silly fun. (:

I don't understand. How could you not be able to answer the first question? Given those four particular musicians, which one would you choose to listen to if you had to choose one of them? None of them have to be a particular favorite of yours.

FWIW, I chose Adele. (And I do particularly like to listen to her.) If you're unfamiliar with her music, here's a youtube video that's been viewed over 92,000,000 times.



Adele - Skyfall (Lyric Video) - YouTube



On a related matter, I found it interesting that several posters stated they weren't familiar with some of the names and/or some of the shows listed in the quiz. There wasn't one with which I was unfamiliar.

BTW, my result was Rat Pack.

I didn't know most of the entertainers in the multiple choice. Was too busy in the 60s being an art student and getting married at 19. I guessed on some and in the end came out as Hippie, which, mixed with Revolutionary, is probably accurate.
