I'll have to try to download a "Music fanfare" to use for each Winner! I went to a seminar in the early 80s once where all the "principals" were sitting on a dais, and we all sat in silence while the "Theme From Rocky" was played - presumably as a motivational tool. The song was the only good part of the seminar unfortunately. ::

George Harrison :) that Rocky impression only lasts about 10 seconds anyway.
:coolio:CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN ROCKY/BLUESBOY :) :). Famous Last Words: I said to my Wife "I haven't read the newspaper today, so I'll put on a difficult Question for my friends and have a bit of a break". Too Easy! Well done, 5 Points to you and it looks like swlabr knew it too (2 Points to her, Honorable Mention). :)

Here's a NEW QUESTION:

WHICH TOP 10 SONG HAS THE LONGEST PAUSE FOR BREATH evident in it (and which Artist/Group sang it) ??? (I sure know some weird stuff, don't I). Must be one he/she/they sang at a pretty fast pace. No, not "Witchdoctor" - that's sped up.

I'll update the points later.

Would I make up a disco group?

Barrabas listed number 40 of the 100 Greatest Disco Artists, outranking both The Hues Corporation (number 48) and Australian faves The Ritchie Family (number 72).

You're a Beauty! :bow:

How could I have doubted you? The Ritchie Family weren't REALLY a favorite in Oz. "The Best Disco In Town" was their only hit here.

I might start a thread of "Favorite Disco Songs" (unless one already exists). Let's see: Lady Marmalade, Funkytown, Le Freak? They're 3 I'd put in.

:coolio:

Whitney Houston should have taken that pause...

Sounds like the Bee Gees could have something to do with it...

BTW, good morning, Australia!!!! :laughing:
