Pigboat - 5
Jet Dragon - 1

As you can see - the answer I was after for c was the line from Rock'n Me. Point each to Kenny and Jolly.

Now, it would seem that Kenny has the game sown up, unless Jolly or Cooda can sneak up for the win by answering 13 and 14 (10 points on offer).

A clue I hear you say?

Both songs late 70's - One is a soloist, the other a group. The group very much a one hit wonder..........:D

24th Apr 2002, 03:19
Arrrgh the penny drops on #13 but the brain won't get into gear.

Chubby fella, bright breezy tune
"You want to be with me,
I want to be with you
We could fly away out in the sky
out in the blue"

ahhhhh how about

Falling in Love....Rocky Burnett ?

24th Apr 2002, 03:58

Thats Him!!!! Well done - anothe 5 points.

Now if you can just get 14, you win!!!!!!!:D :D :D ;) :p

24th Apr 2002, 04:31
Cooda, that sounds like it was sung by a purple dinosaur.:D
Scran I see pigletboat let me down on #7.:)

24th Apr 2002, 06:07
pb I thought 'ol Rocky was a canuck. :p

At least he wasn't a one hit wonder like #14.

Scran, you sure it was a hit??? ;)

Title ain't 'Lord of the Dance" izzit? :confused:

24th Apr 2002, 06:16

Perhaps "hit" is stretching things. Put this one in as a test I must admit.

Well, I think they were an english group.....one word name.......and "Dance" is the last word of the title......:D

24th Apr 2002, 06:31
gimme a point for getting part of the answer and I'll leave the rest to our northern hemispherean neighbours. :D

24th Apr 2002, 08:55
14. Dance Dance Dance (Yowser, yowser yowser) - by Chic

25th Apr 2002, 03:02
Who's Rocky Burnett? Must be one a them westerner canucks who never made it this far east.:D

SFly, good idea re your news quiz. I missed the first one and was waiting for it to resurface.:cool:

25th Apr 2002, 13:50
Surely you're not that young :rolleyes:

May not have been from north of the border, I could be wrong on that count. Used to wear check flannel shirts....lumberjack wannabe?

From memory(which fails from time to time)he had two hits in Oz in the 70's....Tired of Toeing the Line and Falling in Love.

At least they made compilation hits albums at the time. ;)

25th Apr 2002, 19:59
Cooda, nope still can't place him. The plaid shirt's no help. Around here that's formal attire.:D

26th Apr 2002, 00:28
Probably why I immediately placed him as a Canadian :D :p

Vague recollections of bulky shape and beard...may have been a C&W/pop crossover? :rolleyes:

Kenny Carter
26th Apr 2002, 00:42

wasn't Rocky the son of someone famous ?

I remember the beard etc and the songs but thats about it.


26th Apr 2002, 01:29
Rings a bell KC
Either that or he was a song writer with some past successes.

Might have to find out how to use that google thing...:rolleyes:

Kenny Carter
26th Apr 2002, 02:05

Found him.
Rocky was the son of Johnny Burnette. A rock & roller early 50's - circa Gene Vincent.

KC :)

26th Apr 2002, 02:47

The dreaded 14 is none other than (big drum roll!!!)

Get Up and Dance - Supercharge

"God is the love and god is the dance
We gotta get together make a little romance
**something about being a gift to an unhappy world**
The name of the child will be rock and roll"


Get up, get up, get up and dance
you gotta get up, get up, get up and dance
you gotta get up, get up, get up and dance
you gotta dance

followed by a sax type solo and into it again. Had a reasonable beat, but was the only time I ever heard of the group.

If you search Google for "Get up and dance - Supercharge" you will get a link.

Not really a one hit wonder Cooda, because I don't really think it was much of a hit (but I do have the single!!!)

Anyway, it was a good one to foil the Google searchers!!!!!

SFly, re your protest - Nah, sorry. Quite specific that the clue is the first line or lines of the song...........Judges decision is final!!!!:D :D

I'll do next weeks, then Jolly will take over while I'm away (for those not aware, see the Quizmeister on tour thread!!)


26th Apr 2002, 02:53
But scran it is the first line or lines of the song! :( :( :o :o

I can't believe you'd leave me at 13!!! :eek:

Then again, maybe I can . . . Austrlian Music Quiz administrators on pilot's forum sites . . . they're all the same. :D

Oh well


26th Apr 2002, 03:02
Oh, al right.....a point for being so persistent!!!!!!:D :D :p

26th Apr 2002, 05:16
Thanks KC :D ;)

26th Apr 2002, 05:39
Hey Cooda...well done!!

Almost gave you an extra point for getting the other "hit" by Rocky - Tired of Toeing the Line.

Jolly has disappeared to dust off his CD collection in preparation for the week after next. Please note I intentionally gave him plenty of notice so he can come up with a suitable challenge for all of you.

Based on his Histographic Quiz's, I'm satisfied that I have found a suitable stand in for the Music Quiz..........:D :D

(PS - any of the UK based quiz contestants seen the link re Musis Quizmeister on tour? I arrive in the UK sometime 4 May to stay until 9 May - based in the London area - near Earl's Court. Interested in catching up with anyone interested for a quiet COLD beer - for me anyway!! Scran):rolleyes: :rolleyes:
