Hi there Gis

#9 "Frankie" was by Sister Sledge.
One of my daughter's friends is called Francesca but all the girls call her Frankie, I sing this song to her whenever she comes over to our house but she looks at me blankly like I'm an idiot, she's never heard the song  ::).

#13 is "The Edge Of Heaven" by Wham! - their last hit I think?

Drat, drat, drat...did it again!

Answered three instead of two!

No-one's pulled me up about it as yet, so I may have gotten away with it...

Nonchalantly wipes one answer off...
