No problem, that's the bad thing about the audio ones, they're harder to access, having to download and all

This is correct :)

I double checked in my BHS book re the song titles beginning with 'I'  seems they are ok.

Lovely quiz btw


Thanks! :)

Yeah, the song titles don't have anything special about them, just the artists.

#3 is the wrong artist, but the rest is correct :)

Hi Andrew,

#8 is Englebert Humperdinck, think it's 'Lonely is a man without love'

#23 think it's 'Keep on loving you' by ? 'REO Speedwagon' ?


Hiya! :)

#8 is the right artist, wrong tune... sorry, not right for #23, but keep trying!

Bumping this quiz in case someone who might've missed it the first time around wants a crack before I start doing the no limit/hint thing :)

5.  Johnny Ray - ?


I don't know the name of the song, but I do know the artist.  He was name-dropped in "Come on Eileen".  :D

I'm going to take another crack at #3. Much to my embarrassment a mate pointed out that he thought it was an Australian tune, by somebody St John. Jeff St John, I think, and rush to my 1970's Countdown annual. Close. I find that Jeff St John fronted a British band in the 60s called The Id, and they list Big Time Operator amongst their chart successes. It doesn't tell me if they were the original artists. So I offer:

#3 Big Time Operator - The Id.

or not...
