The MJ Show #113 (#MJquiz - The Beatles Quiz On Twitter)

Just last night (19th July, 2010) I had the first #MJQuiz on Twitter. That quiz was total time pass stuff. Questions going into every genre and time frame. Just things that were popping in my head.
But when I saw the phenomenal response and enthusiasm to my debut quiz I thought I'd get serious and give the music lovers something to really chew on.

Hence the first proper, structured quiz took place tonight. It was a quiz on the songs of The Beatles!
I'm going to give you all the questions I asked here and also give you the songs that featured in those questions.
Check it out.
If you want, don't see the answers first. Try to see how many of these you actually know :) If you get more than 10, I'd say you're a massive Beatles fan! :)
