Before you begin, follow the guidelines for playing games in the Game Strategy section here.

Then, choose the best method to play this game based on your show and how you’ll use the game.

The Lyrics Challenge Pop Edition

This game is fun for listeners to play along in the car. Plus, it’s a terrific way to connect a personality to the station’s format, engage listeners, and reinforce the music brand.

It also works as a complement to music features like some of these. Some personalities may want to make it a part of a music feature or special weekend programming.

The Lyrics Challenge Pop Edition is simply a series of lyrics-based questions. It’s distinctly different from the Lyrics Game because of how the questions are formulated, but you could mix in questions from this game with that feature and vice-versa.

Tips for Playing

Be sure the clues are easy enough for listeners to play along with or at least guess. It’s no fun if the lyrics are too obscure or the songs are unfamiliar.¬†There’s nothing worse than a contestant that has no idea and can’t make a guess.

Consider making difficult questions multiple-choice, especially if playing with listeners.

Some shows play a clip of each song with the lyrics after revealing the correct answers to remind listeners who may not know the song just by title and artist. If you’re playing multiple rounds, this can get quite long.
