Music themed Trivia Rounds

Postby blindlemonjefferson » 29 Mar 2021, 19:15

Attending my 63826718th Zoom quiz night next week, and have been asked to lead a round. Last time, I did an audio round where I'd play the original version of a song that was popularized by a different artist, and ask people to name the song/artist, for example Prince's version of Nothing Compares 2 U, Bruce Springsteen's version of Blinded by the LIght, etc etc.

I want to do another music round, but am struggling to think of a fun theme. Wondering if anyone has had any advice or themes that they've had success with (either as host or participant)
