Subject: Cliff Richard Lyrics Quiz (Killed)

Written By: Windbreaker05 on 01/19/06 at 8:14 pm

As if I didn't have enough quizzes open... sorry, I'll tone it down if I'm doing too many, but I was in the mood

All of these songs have been recorded by Cliff Richard. Give the title. I've tried to stick with reasonably popular tracks. A few of these have other reasonably popular versions as well, in case you're not a Cliff fan. No cheating. Enjoy!

Starting limit = 5
No more limit.

I guess these aren't doing very well. I'll make this easy. If you'd like to jog your memory for some titles to guess for these, you are now allowed to use this web source:

I went ahead and revealed the rest. Thanks for playing everyone!

Whistledog (The Millennium Prayer)

8. Johnny's into Susie but Susie's into Ronnie. Ronnie waits for Louie but Louie's singing "Louie Louie"
HINT: 1979 - charted UK - did not chart US - remade by Clout

18. Squeeze and hug me all through the night
Paul (Do You Wanna Dance)

Whistledog (It's All In The Game)

21. It isn't right to be apart. We could be here wild in our wishes

Is #14 Let Me Be the One?  That is one of his recent hits

Hi again...just a few more...

#13. The excellent 'I Ain't Got Time Anymore', a reasonable cover was done for the American market by The Glass Bottle

#28. 'High Class Baby' - his second hit (after 'Move It'), which he reckoned was so bad that he believed his career was finished...

#30. Nearly 25 years later, his career was still going, with 'The Only Way Out'...
