G'day Indy  :)

#19 is correct.  Nice try with Joan but alas it isn't :)  You're on the right track the word "weak" is correct.  I almost used "The Weakness In Me",  it being one of my fave songs but I thought of another song.

Hello there Janine, excellent idea for a quiz.

#20 is "Don't You Want Me" - Human league
#27 is "The Young Ones" - Cliff Richard

and #3 is driving me mad, it's one where I can sing that line but the next line just won't come to me....

Hello Graham - I've still got part II of this quiz yet!  Once I was on a roll with with it, so many songs started popping into my head.  If you've got time, do another crytic quiz.  I always enjoy those :)


Anyhow those two answers are correct.

Finally, I think I got it!

Since #17 is Power of Love, then #18 may be Weak in the Presence of Beauty by Allison Moyet? It's a long shot, but I'm taking a guess.

Hi jaytee

I just worked out #25 from the extra lyrics and the answer to #26, it's "Little Arrows" by Leapy Lee, a big favourite on Ed Stewart's "Junior Choice" BBC radio show when I was a nipper.

Hi Graham - you got it.  I loved that song when I was a little girl :)  I saw Leapy Lee on TV a while back - he was running a resort in Spain and still performing  :o

Hi Paul - that's correct!  I love that song.  It was her only big hit in Australia.  Another song "Can I Get A Witness" got a bit of airplay here.  I remember the video because it had Reg Hollis from "The Bill" in the dock.  I looked at the Sam Brown website and she is co-writing and performing with Jools Holland.  Interesting stuff.

Heh! I remember that...

I looked at the Sam Brown website and she is co-writing and performing with Jools Holland.  Interesting stuff.

Sounds like it - although her solo career never really took off, she's always in heavy demand as a session backup vocalist and still performs from time to time with her Dad, Joe...

Yep  :P  We camp every year in September with a huge group of friends.  The kids always put on a concert and some of them decided to sing this song!  We had to listen to them rehearse it over and over and over ....  my ears were bleeding by the end.
