Sorry Edna. Not Voulez Vous/ Abba, or The Final Countdown/ Europe. That was a good one! :)

Abba's biggest Hit in Australia (by far) was "Fernando". It holds the record jointly with the Beatles "Hey Jude" for the most number of weeks at #1 (15 weeks).

Well, the Boards are getting slower and slower, so I'll try to put these questions on now and say goodnight all.

:headphones:

QUESTION 1 (CURRENT).

In the mid 80s a Scandinavian act had a Big Hit in the U.S., U.K., Australia (and I would think most of Europe) with a song that had been released TWICE before as a single unsuccessfully.

Can you please tell me the Performer/s AND the Song?

:headphones:

QUESTION 2.

Which member of a famous Group refused to accompany them to South Africa in the late 60s as a protest against apartheid?

:headphones:

QUESTION 3.

A well known Rock Band promoted their debut album in the first half of the 70s with a series of unusual contests. Who was the Band and what form did the contests take?

:headphones:

Goodnight and Good Luck All. :sleepy: :sleepy: :sleepy:

Or even 'Take on Me'?

Regards

ps. the other was either Lindesfarne or the Isle of Dogs, and I would have gone for Lindesfarne ultimately given that the Isle of Dogs wasn't a 70s band. Altogether, two three four...

NEW QUESTION !

Who am I ?

Formed a Rock Group in the U.K. (of which I was lead singer) in the late 70s which was successful on both sides of the Atlantic, mainly in the mid 80s.

I was married to a couple of other Rockers at different times. They were both lead singers of U.K. Groups too! One of them appeared in a very successful Movie as a straight actor/actress.

Good Luck! ::
