Something a bit different to the games in the 'Neighbourhood, challenge your fellow boardies on their music knowledge with a bit of pop quizzing. Identify the artist from a line of lyrics, test them on trivia or if you really want to be flash, set up an intro audio clip for us to guess. It's all up to you! Whoever answers correctly asks the next question.

Starting you off with an easy one, which song do these lyrics come from?
"No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark"

ok here goes, one for the 80's kids...

Huey Lewis and the News, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Jennifer Rush all had 1985 hits with The Power of Love. What was unusual about this?

Exactly that!

(well, unless it turns out Huey Lewis, Holly Johnson and Jennifer Rush were the same person or something. This was the 80s after all)

Your go Ticky

Nils Lofgren has played guitar with all three of them.

btw Ticky was right with the power of love answer. I thought it was an unusual thing to have three different songs of the same name in the charts in one year, can't think of another occasion. scratch

"Do Anything You Wanna Do" - Eddie and the Hot Rods. Love it, classic track.

From which 1980's album is this taken?

The Unforgettable Fire - U2

D'ya know what? That's amazing!
I just heard 'A Sort of Homecoming' in the car and having bellowed along to every word of it, thought I'd log on and post it on the 'I forgot how good that song is' -thread! Then I saw this question...
Spooooky!

Actually, it's rather sad that I know the answer to this but anyway:

Which is the only James Bond song ever to go to number one in the Billboard 100?

It wasn't the make-up or fashion that put me off Duran Duran, it was the awful singing, crap songs and trite, meaningless lyrics. Laughing
I'm probably only jealous cos Le Bon married Yasmin who was (still is) absolutely gorgeous. I love you

Right, a question....

Who played piano on one of my favourite LP's, David Bowie's Hunky Dory?
