For the more musically inclined quiz – guessing closed

quiz I’ve been working my way through 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die  and am enjoying it.  This quiz is all about matching up the quote with the artist who made it.  Sometimes these quotes were made decades after they hit it big and f it’s a band, someone in the band made it and you don’t have to know who.  I know these will be guesses but I think you can do it!!

Take your best guesses, be entered to win a prize.  No cheating (using the web to help find answers) or copying.  All extra details can be found here.

Leave your guesses in the comment section until Sunday.

5. “I have to change a tune to my own way of doing it”   Billie Holiday, 1939
