Gotta steal 4 before anyone else does. *gives everyone else a cold hard stare*

*softens up so as to not appear scary*

4. is The Beach Boys' "Do It Again", most common in its more inferior versions with trumpet-esque falsetto from older brother Brian, available in much better (but of perhaps more dubious sound quality) demo versions, the hammering at the end being an excerpt from "I'm In Great Shape" from the frankly untouchable "Smile".

I'm so glad there's no such thing as smart**s points..!

22. is Video Killed The Radio Star by Buggles, from 1979, the main members from whom replaced the main members in the band Yes, and written after reading a science fiction story about an opera without sound. So I'm informed!

Great track!

Smarta** points can be awared (if you really want 'em!)

Of course, Bobo, my dear boy you are right!  I fear that I have only ever heard the inferior version but I still think it's a bloody good song!!

Hi Paul - glad you like my quiz :)
