Period Films Song Quiz


The Period Drama Theme Song Quiz in December was so popular I knew another song game was in order! Last time the songs were mostly from BBC period drama miniseries but this time the songs come from TV films, miniseries and movies. Also note that there might be songs from a couple miniseries that were used last time (just different songs).

To Play: Listen to the 20 clips and leave a comment guessing which period films you think the song clips come from (note: you don't have to guess the name of the song, just the film). I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish. 

Scoring: 5 points will be awarded for each correctly guessed period drama so that a total of 100 points can be earned. 




I think this quiz might be a bit harder than the first one in some ways but hopefully it will be just as fun. This quiz doesn't have as many breaks as the last one and is longer to fit in all 20 clips.

Enjoy! :)


Very Truly Your's

Miss Dashwood,
Your guesses on clips 1, 2, 3, 4, 16 and 20 were correct.
Unfortunately your guesses on clips 7, 8, 10, 11 and 15 were incorrect.
Your guess on #18 wasn't far off but even though the title was correct I can't give it to you because of the year listed.
Your score is a total of 30 points! :)

Good job! All 12 of your guesses are correct!
I knew #4 would make you happy! And Yes! #10 is that track, my favorite too! :)
Yeah, #9 is quite crazy but people who have seen that film will probably remember it. Oh, and maybe try #12 because I think you might get it.
Your score is 60 points! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Melody,
Good job on your guess for #12! Your score is now 65 points! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Ana,
Good job! You only got four incorrect and they are #3, #8, #10 and #18 (same composer, different film!).
The clips you got correct were 2, 4, 6, 9, 11 (first of your guesses), 14, 15, 16 and 20. Your score is a total of 45 points!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Issy,
Good job! You only got two of your guesses were correct and they were clips #8 and #11.
The other 12 of your guesses were correct giving you a total of 60 points! Thanks for playing! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Lauren,
Good job on your guesses, all of them were correct! Your score is 60 points!
I'm not sure you'd like #8, I put it in because I thought some people might recognize the theme song if they'd seen it. You probably have seen #15, it's an old favorite of mine and the music is gorgeous! :)

Lauren said...

Okay, I think I have it!
15. Ever After
I puzzled over that for a good long time, so I'm hoping it's right! :)

Lauren,
