    Default MUSIC CONTEST - 2 REX Giveaway

    Hello all,

    Turntablist and I are going to hold a music trivia contest and 2 winners will each receive 1 REX.

    The contest will be similar to those 20 question games where you continue to ask questions to try and narrow down your search to the answer. I might drop clues or hints along the way. There is no limit to how many times you can ask a question.

    Here we go:
    I am thinking about 2 different songs (which you will need to guess by asking questions) that are in the pop/pop rock/prog rock/rock genres. Each song, when first released, really had a powerful effect on the music industry and were critically acclaimed not just for the songs but in each case *one* of the musicians was considered to be among the best ever in his/her specific instrument and still is to this date.

    What you can and cannot ask:
    You cannot ask questions such as does the name of the artist/band or song begin with an A, B, C, etc.. or Was the song composed in 1995?, etc. For the most part, you can ask almost anything to try and figure this out. You can Google stuff and sift through Rolling Stone top 500 songs of all time if you think it might help. It is possible you may have never heard of these songs but if that is the case, hopefully you can still guess them and then hear them after

    How I will respond to questions:
    I will, for the most part, either say *yes*, *no*, *Irrelevant*, or *sorry, cannot answer that*.

    People on both NA and EU shards can participate.. Whoever guesses the answer to either song will receive a free REX. If you win for one song, you cannot guess the second one, so we can spread the wealth to two different people. Thanks ! and Good Luck!

    I feel like throwing out a random guess, even though I do not want the REX:

    David Bowie - Let's Dance (featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan on guitar) ?




    (Also not sure this belongs in General, but I leave that to the community/forum folks.)

    Is it "Raining Blood" by Slayer?

    Oh, not pop- sorry.


    Is it "Subdivisions" by Rush?


    If neither of these guesses are correct, we'll just have to agree to disagree & I'll provide my own prize.





    Either way- thanks for contributing to a fun minigame for Rift enthusiasts everywhere.

    I guess if we are throwing darts at it:

    Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeplin (Jimmy Page, guitar)
    Auqualung, Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson, flute)

    I have unlimited darts?

    A few things here about this guess
    First, good job on thinking outside of the box including Stevie as your *focus artist* however it is incorrect, and also remember this would probably not be considered one of David Bowie's great songs which amazed critics, although perhaps highly recognized

    First hint: the artist who played with the band/duo/solo, whatever, was part of that band and not a person brought in such as Stevie or for example, Eddie Van Halen on Michael Jackson's *Beat it*! But very good job on getting things rolling.

    I put this in General since it might attract more of an audience than in the other category. I hope that is okay.. I know people luv their REX But your call on that one!

    Once again a good guess since Kurt definitely had that great voice and fairly new style in the grunge genre which is really all part of the rock genres The SONG is incorrect and I might have picked a different song for that band, however I am not saying that this band is right or wrong lol

    Very good question and this is the type of question that will get you closer and closer to the answers.. Neither of them are British though

    Sweet Child o' Mine by Guns N' Roses possibly.


    Great song, but not groundbreaking.

    Slash could fit the description of "best ever in his/her specific instrument" though.


    Or maybe "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan.

    Everything after Storm Legion was a mistake. ()
