Daily Quiz anyone?
If you are stuck at home and bored like me.
How about exercising the old grey cells?

I have for a number of years run quiz nights and couple of times a year. I was due to do one tomorrow which is now cancelled So I have a bank of questions sitting in my computer's hard drive. They are quite eclectic in their nature.

I am thinking I could put up a set of questions for which you write down your answers. After 30mins or so I will put up the answers. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. before I post the right answers.

You mark your own answers and post your score.

I will then record the scores and at the end of the "lockdown" we will see who is WHO's brainbox supreme. Obiviously no looking up the answers (you only cheat yourselves)

Word of warning these won't be easy questions as they have been devised for teams of six. Forming teams on here might be too problematic. So I'll try to pick out the easier questions.

Any interest?

The reason Reet Petite was considered a controversial Christmas No,1 (according to Top of Pops 1986) was that Paul Heaton claimed that right until the day before the final charts were published, Caravan of Love was way ahead but come the announcement from the BBC it was Reet Petite at No.1. He claimed that a run-in he had had with Magret Thatcher had caused pressure to be put on BBC to make sure his song didn't Top the Pops at Christmas,

Went for Like A Virgin as "controversial" #1. Shouldn't be controversial. But would have been. Wrong anyway, by 3 years!

The Communards were shite. HTH.

9. Missed the communalism one.

Big shout out to the chernobyl tv series for helping out with a couple of questions and my parents for buying me the Young ones and cliff Richard track as a gift. Used to love that song as a kid.

Aaagh,,, 5,,, Thought it might be Phamtom but put CATS and bizarrely Quadrophenia as totally forgotten Labyrinth. Loved Communards and Reete Petite but put down The Only Way is UP and Mistletoe and Wine for those! Why was Jackie Wilson beating Housemartins controversial?
