"Fortnight" of Knowledge: Musical and Subject Matter Combinations

Unexpected duets often surprise and delight music fans by merging different styles and genres. A recent example is the collaboration between Taylor Swift and Post Malone on their song, "Fortnight."



This pairing is particularly surprising due to the stark contrast in their musical backgrounds: Swift, known for her evolution from country to pop and indie-folk, and Malone, celebrated for his genre-blending mix of hip-hop, pop, and rock. Their collaboration, much like the combination of multiple subjects in a single question on the MEE portion of the bar exam, creates a unique and memorable experience by bringing together diverse elements.


Let's see how subjects have historically been combined on the bar exam:
