Recommended Posts

Q1. . Who am I? Born in Texas, but achieved very little success in the U.S. Moved to the U.K. in the early 60s and had 5 Top 10 Hits there 1964/65 - 2 of them from a famous Stage Musical (later filmed). Also was engaged to Dean Martin's daughter at one stage.

...........................................................

Q2. A song written by a famous Country Singer/ Actor(Actress). #1 in the Country Charts in the mid 70s. Charted in the Pop Charts in the early 80s after being featured in a Movie. Charted (much higher) for another Singer/ Actor(Actress) after being featured in another Movie in the early 90s.

What's the song, and who are the 2 Artists who had Hits with it?

You'll figure this one out. Elvish already did! Replacement Question 2 below.

...........................................................

Q3. An Australian solo Artist had a Big Hit in the first half of the 70s. It was released in over 30 countries and sold at least 2 million copies, a million of those in the U.S. - the first Australian Artist to achieve this.

Q3: Wait...Sister Janet Mead... in 1974... with... I don´t remember the name of the song...

It was the "Lord's Prayer". I've told you before that going to Church is good for you, but you wouldn't listen. ::

Fortunately I've just received a divine message to be lenient with you, so..............

:coolio:CONGRATULATIONS EDNA! GOOD THINKING.:coolio:

Now we all know the FIRST Australian Artist to have a Million selling record in the U.S. - unlikely as it may seem.

:headphones:

..........................................................

QUESTION 1 REMAINS UNANSWERED - ONLY 2 PEOPLE HAVE ATTEMPTED IT.

Who am I? Born in Texas, but achieved very little success in the U.S. Moved to the U.K. in the early 60s and had 5 Top 10 Hits there 1964/65 - 2 of them from a famous Stage Musical (later filmed). Also was engaged to Dean Martin's daughter at one stage.

We know it's not:

Roger Whittaker (Uncle Joe)

Roy Orbison, Gene Pitney, Del Shannon, Billy Thorpe, Carl Perkins, J.Frank Wilson, Cliff Richard (all from Laurie).

You're on an Honorable Mention Laurie for trying so hard, AND the first 3 at least were more popular in Europe and Australia than they were in the U.S. - maybe because of Beatlemania there? Billy Thorpe is Australian and Cliff Richard is English.
