Female Pop Singers

Sometimes I'm listening to the radio with my friends and we find ourselves having a conversation like this:

Dan:
Man, I am SO SICK of this STUPID Fiona Apple song.

Dave:
Isn't this song by Natalie Imbruglia?  Fiona Apple was the one with that annoying "Who Will Save Your Soul" song.

Chris:
No, that was Tori Amos.  This one is Natalie Merchant.  Or maybe Alanis Morissette.  Or was it Meredith Brooks?  Hmm.

Does this ever happen to you?  Maybe it's just me, but all of the female pop singers seem to blend together.  Melissa Etheridge?  Jewel?  Bjork?  Joan Osborne?   Ani DiFranco?   They're all the same to me.  But for those of you who faithfully attend the Lilith Fair, I've built the Female Pop Star Mix 'n Match Extravaganza, an awesome game you just have to try.  Here's how it works:

  • You will be presented with a table of entries.  Each row of the table contains the name of an artist, a picture of an artist, and a hit song.
  • The table contains only one row with a completely matching triplet.  Find this row and click the corresponding radio button.  Then click the button at the bottom of the page to submit your answer.
  • If you succeed, your score will increase by one.  If you fail, your score will reset to zero.
  • Reach a score ten to win!
