About This Quiz

Whether you are longer in the tooth or a spring chicken, we're sure we'll be able to figure out your mental age by the way you rate some '70s songs. In fact, the age on your birth certificate is completely null and void here. By the time we're done getting your opinion on a few '70s songs, we'll know where you stand on the maturity scale. 

Do you feel like you were born older than the rest of your peers, or are your friends always telling you to grow up? That's because your real age, your mental age, is the age you should really live by. Who wants to grow old when you can stay "Forever Young"? During this '70s songs quiz, we are going to put you to the test. We will cover songs across many genres until we are certain we know how old you are in your head. 

It doesn't matter if you have a "Heart of Glass" or you are a real "Free Bird," the way you rate the songs we give you will tell us how old you really are inside. Forget what looks back at you when you look in the mirror. Your true, mental age is reflected in this quiz!
