WHAT A SHAME that the Competition has been spoilt by the site going so slow. It's just taken me 10 minutes to get into this thread. :(

.Question B: - "Girls Talk" by Dave Edmunds

:coolio: :coolio: WELL DONE SAMMY ! THAT'S THE ONE. :) :)

Dave Edmunds is probably best known for his cover of the old Smiley Lewis song "I Hear You Knocking". 5 POINTS to you and 1 to Addict for participating.

:guitar:

QUESTION A (CURRENT): What do these songs written and performed by the Bee Gees have in common: "Massachusetts" and "I Started A Joke"???

No joy there. CLUE: Listen to the Songs, not the Lyrics.

:D

I don't think it would be fair for me to give any further clues in the Bee Gees question at this time. As I've said, Listen to the songs, but it's not in the lyrics. :)

Thank you very much Dear Edna. I think our friends in Europe may be a little disadvantaged by the time differences, so you, SoulGirl and Diggs did VERY well. :)

My Wife and I are taking a three week holiday/ vacation in the middle of this month, so I'll have to cram in as many questions as I can. Here's 2 new ones: Please mark your answers A and B, and don't forget that you get a point for EVERY question you participate in.

QUESTION A A spooky one. Which group had one of their most successful singles debut on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 the day their lead singer died? And what was the single?

QUESTION B What could these 3 musicians have in common? Dion DiMucchi (of Dion and the Belmonts and later solo), Bob Dylan, and Stuart Sutcliffe? CLUE: Think Beatles.

Good luck and goodnight all. :sleepy:

Question A: I know Johnny Moore, singer of the Drifters, died very soon... "Under the boardwalk", though, was recorded the day before first former singer died... I´ll keep on searching...

Question B: I know Dion Dimucci knew Bob Dylan and I read he did something on "Maggie´s farm"... but that has nothing to do with Stucliffe... mmm...
