...it could also be "the fat man"... Randy Newman: "You can´t fool the fat man"

Or the Damned... "Creek (you can´t fool me)"

But The Who won´t get fooled again, that´s true...

The song I'm thinking of is so well known in Australia that I assumed it was a US Hit, but I just looked up my U.S. Chart Book and shock, horror, it wasn't a Hit there.

It was a UK #2 for a well known UK 70s Group, and I've heard it in movie soundtracks in the last few years.

CURRENT QUESTION

2.jpg

Who did this singer say (musically) couldn't be fooled???

It was a UK #2 for the well known UK 70s Group, of which he was the lead singer. Surprisingly it didn't chart in the U.S., but I've heard it in at least one movie soundtrack in the last few years.

Old55, I just sit and stare in amazement - your quiz undoubtedly rocks, gets everyone guessing and talking - but my brain slips into :doh: mode as soon as I see the questions! I just love to trawl through and learn! :bow:

42 pages strong and never a sign of faltering! :rockon:

:thumbsup: Everyone who answers - your wealth of music knowledge amazes and astounds!

That guy looks like Marc Bolan? Gary Glitter? Could it be from "All the young dudes", Ian Hunter...I know they say something about T.Rex...but I can´t check lyrics now...

No, he doesn´t talk about fooling Bolan...

Could it be "You can´t fool the children of the revolution" ("Children of the Revolution"), a song of T Rex?

Maybe other quizzers have the right answer but I notice the boards are really hard to get in today...

I couldn't agree more Sue. I don't know how I'd go on the "receiving end".

I'd better stick to asking the Questions. :)

Thanks for your nice thoughts about the Quiz. 42 pages is probably a bit too long, so we'll start a new thread shortly. I'm just poring over the Points update now. :P
