    O/T Mega Poptastic Pop Quiz (7)

    Well a few days before our next game and a quiet weekend here in the US so I put together another 60 the torment you. Put these lyrics into your karaoke brain and pluck out the song title and artist who had a UK No1 hit with it . As usual, PLEASE no posting answers once you've Googled the lyrics to satisfy your itch. 5 is the self imposed limit before taking a 24 hour break and giving others a chance. I'm not keeping scores but keep your own score and post it on here if you think you know more than 5. Hopefully there's something in there for everyone, some easy, some a bit harder, some classics and some one hit wonder novelties from primarily the 1960s, 70s, 80s and a few from the 90s.

    Well done Brin and Eversley. 10/10 so far.

    Although I don't keep score I do award people a sadness rating based upon the songs they get and I must admit No 57 scores pretty high
